Brand New Street Fighter 5 Character Necalli Revealed

Necalli and his crazy hair to debut in Street Fighter V.


Capcom has revealed a brand new character who will join the cast of upcoming fighting game Street Fighter V. The character is named Necalli and was revealed with a trailer shown during the competitive gaming event Evolution Championship Series, which took place over the weekend.

Necalli's fighting style includes attacks which have him pounding the ground, slashing at enemies, and a V-Trigger move which transforms his appearance dramatically. His V-Trigger turns his long hair a gravity-defying bright red--check out the video below to see how it works.
