Capcom has said that each character from Street Fighter V will receive a second V-Trigger attack as part of the upcoming Arcade Edition update. You can get a sneak peek at some of them in the brand new trailer embedded above, along with a few new Combo Extenders, Mix Ups, and Abilities.

Learn more about Menat’s fighting style ahead of her Street Fighter V debut

Yesterday, Capcom unveiled the first gameplay trailer for Menat during the Hong Kong eSports Festival. Today, the game publisher released a few more details about her fighting style on the Capcom-Unity blog:

Character Overview
Menat is an apprentice of a famous Fortune teller that lives in Italy. The techniques she was taught revolve around her crystal sphere, which she controls with her soul power. This power lets her extend the base of her attacks, giving her a fortunate advantage at longer ranges. She is also able to send it out at the opponent to disrupt attacks, where she can later call it back. While the crystal sphere is out, she can cancel any normal attack and her V-Skill into Soul Sphere: Ankh, calling the crystal ball back to her, greatly increasing her combo potential.

V-Skill: Soul Reflect – Kamal
Produce a shock wave attack from her soul power. While the crystal sphere is retracted, this lets her reflect the average projectile back at the opponent. If the crystal ball was sent out into battle prior to using her V-Skill, this will absorb the projectile to help build up her v-gauge. This can also be used to launch the opponent into the air to help extend combos.

V-Trigger: Wisdom of Thoth
Menat summons six spheres with her soul power andeach sphere is linked to her normal attacks. Pressing and releasing of a normal attack sends the sphere linked to that attack flying at the opponent.

Critical Art: The Nefertem
Menat sends her crystal sphere to bind her soul power with the opponent to deal devastating damage.

Street Fighter V owners will be able to download Menat beginning tomorrow, August 29. And in case you missed it, her debut trailer has been embedded above.

Menat is Street Fighter V’s next character and she’ll be available to download on August 29

Capcom revealed the next character set to join Street Fighter V during this weekend’s Hong Kong eSports Festival. Menat is an Egyptian character who is described as “The Eyes of the Future,” and her fortunetelling abilities are on full display in the trailer above.

The fortuneteller is extremely fast, and her electrically-charged crystal balls can pull opponents in closer, or push them away. If you look close, you’ll see she can also teleport.

Menat will be available to download as part of Street Fighter V’s Season 2 Character Pass, or as a standalone purchase, on August 29. Capcom will announce the final character from Season 2 later this year.

Final Fight’s Abigail will be Street Fighter V’s next downloadable character

Capcom has revealed that Abigail, the final boss from 1989’s Final Fight, will be the next downloadable character for Street Fighter V. The hulking leader of the Mad Gear Gang isn’t the first character from the Final Fight franchise to make the jump to the Street Fighter universe… Cody, Guy, Sodom, Rolento, and Maki all previously appeared in the Street Fighter Alpha series.

As always, the Capcom-Unity blog has a detailed breakdown of Abigail’s moveset:

Character Overview
Making his way from Final Fight to Street Fighter V, Abigail was one of the top ranking members of the Mad Gear Gang. His territory is the Bay Area of Metro City, a location he terrorizes with his gargantuan size, and at eight feet tall, he makes the Red Cyclone look like a spinning top. The tires around Abigail’s monstrous biceps make is clear what he’s been up to when he isn’t cracking skulls. This mountain of a man is a complete (mad) gear head that loves to make car noises almost as much as he loves driving them.

V-Skill: Hungabee
Abigail thrusts his sizeable belly forwards (either high or low) countering the opponent’s attack and setting himself up for a combo opportunity.

V-Trigger: Max Power
After popping his two-bar V-Trigger, Abigail can charge up his four different heavy punches for one hit of armour and extended juggles. A full charge will break the opponent’s guard.

Critical Art: Abigail Special
Abigail slams his opponent with a downward open-palm strike that puts them into a daze. He then hoists them into the air, pummels them like a makeshift speedbag before launching a savage hook that shatters the screen.

Abigail will be available to download next week, July 25, as part of Street Fighter V’s Season 2 Character Pass. The first trailer for Abigail has been embedded above.

The Amazing Race asked its contestants to play Street Fighter V last night

The Amazing Race sent the remaining four teams to South Korea last night, and host Phil Keoghan pitted them against professional Street Fighter V players for the chance to move on.

It’s easy to assume that racers wouldn’t have a chance against Seon-Woo “Infiltration” Lee and Chung-Gon “Poongko” Lee, but The Amazing Race found a way to make it a bit more fair. After ten wins, the pro players had to play with one hand behind their back. And after 20 wins, they were blindfolded. Even with these handicaps, it took quite a while for the racers to beat the pro players.

Clips from the episode are available after the break, and be on the lookout for London’s impressive button mashing style. The finale for this season of The Amazing Race will air on CBS on June 1. (more…)
