New Street Fighter V Character Announced: Abigail from Final Fight

Capcom has unveiled the next DLC character for Street Fighter 5 – and he’s easily the biggest fighter in the game. Two more brand new characters are left to be announced, but a leak from October a year ago that has so far proven to be correct indicate we can expect Menat, a disciple of fortune teller Rose, and Zeku, the teacher of Guy from Final Fight. Ladies and gentleman, say hello to the massive Mad Gear gang member known as Abigail.

A former Final Fight boss is making their way to Street Fighter V later this month.

From the released trailer, the upcoming character looks to excel in grappling moves and does vast damage once he gets hold of his puny foes. But to make up for it, he seems to have a ton of armor on his moves. Abigail is a towering fighter who can run through an opponent’s life bar with a nasty grapple move, a vicious punch combination and a Critical Art that treats his foe like a punching bag.

Much like Hugo, players might have to think twice before trying to trap Abigail in a cross-over.

Releasing for season pass holders on July 25 alongside the Metro City Bar arena, Abigail will be the fourth of six planned DLC characters for Street Fighter 5 Season 2, and as you can see in the trailer below, he’s just huge. This includes the Champion’s Choice outfit for Guile, as well as the nostalgia wares for Alex, Juri, and Ibuki.
