Street Fighter 5 Rashid

Street Fighter 5's latest character has been revealed: a man who uses the power of tornados, light breezes, and of course punching and kicking to defeat his opponents. Rashid is SF5's second new character, after the hair-heavy Necalli (opens in new tab), and you can see him do his thing in the following trailer, courtesy of IGN Middle East (opens in new tab).

We're 11 characters into Capcom's lengthy trailer campaign, which will reveal all 16 combatants that will be included in the chunky fighting game at launch. The last was R. Mika (Rainbow Mika to her mum), off of Street Fighter Alpha 3. (Other characters will be added afterwards, of course, so don't fret if your favourite isn't in at release.) Here's R. Mika beating up the slicey Vega (opens in new tab), on that British stage I'm getting a bit tired of seeing.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
