Street Fighter 5 Video Showcases Ken's Updated Look and Moves

Street Fighter V is almost here.


Capcom's Street Fighter V launches in just a couple weeks, and now, the publisher has put out a new trailer that focuses on the veteran character Ken Masters. In the video, community manager Matt Edwards talks about Ken's moves and skills, including his hurricane kick which is particularly effective if you can time it to land just as your opponent is throwing a fireball.

Ken is one of 16 playable characters that will be available when Street Fighter V launches later this month. Even more characters will be released for the game after launch.

In other recent news about Ken, Capcom has explained why it changed up the character's look and moveset for the new game.

Street Fighter V launches on February 16 in North America and Europe for PS4 and PC, supporting cross-play between both platforms. Just recently, Capcom announced a story mode for the game will launch this summer as a free update.
