Capcom had one last Street Fighter V character to announce before the game’s February 16 launch, and they did it today at the 2015 PlayStation Experience. F.A.N.G. is a gangly behatted weirdo that’s the new second-in-command of Shadaloo. He’s also got a way with toxins and flings poisonous gas around the arena like your old college roommate:
F.A.N.G. is an assassin whose unique poison attacks leave him second only to M. Bison himself! Besides overseeing Shadaloo’s operations, his true passion comes from the evil experiments conducted within Shadaloo’s research facilities. F.A.N.G. introduces a series first mechanic; poison. Whenever his poison attacks connect, they continuously deal damage to the opponent’s life bar until he gets hit or the poison runs its course. F.A.N.G.’s sinister long range attacks and slippery movements, paired with his ability to poison, will leave his opponents feeling ill.
F.A.N.G. sends out a slow moving poison-filled projectile. If it makes contact with the opponent, it will begin to slowly deal damage.
The ultimate defense, F.A.N.G. emits a poisonous cloud around his body that constantly deals damage to the opponent as long as they’re near him.
The Capcom-Unity blog also confirmed that six characters will be added to Street Fighter V over the course of 2016: Alex, Guile, Balrog, Ibuki, Juri, and Urien. A Season Pass (priced at $29.99 and available now) will include access to all six characters, as well as a premium costume for each. Players can also opt to purchase “Zenny” or earn “Fight Money” by completing challenges to gain access to the new characters. It’s currently unknown exactly how players will earn “Fight Money” and how much they’ll need to unlock these characters for free.
