Ken (and his new ponytail) joins Street Fighter V’s roster

Capcom has announced that Ken Masters has become be the seventh character to join Street Fighter V‘s roster of playable characters. He’ll join the previously-announced septet of Ryu, Chun-Li, Charlie Nash, M. Bison, Cammy, Birdie, and (unofficially) Blanka.

While Ken is still clad in his familiar red karategi, the character got a haircut (check out that ponytail) and a set of fiery new combos. According to Capcom, he’ll also perform plenty of “tricky mix-ups and flashy combos” on his opponents, which you can see in the trailer embedded above.

And don’t forget, every PS4 owners who pre-orders Street Fighter V will gain access to the closed beta, which is scheduled to begin on July 23 at 9:00 PM (Eastern Time).
