Street Fighter 5 trailer reveals Vega


The flamboyant Vega joins the Street Fighter 5 roster, complete with signature claw and a mask to protect his chiseled face from taking a further chiseling. Here Vega is seen delivering a pummeling to SF5 newcomer, Necalli, who joins Cammy and Birdie, Ken, Bison, Nash and Charlie in SF5's growing collection of fighters.

The V-guage is one of SF5's primary new systems, which Lucas rather liked when he went hands-on with a preview build. It also features cross-platform combat with Playstation 4 players, and is due out in March 2016. Trailers like this make excellent use of 60fps streaming video. So slick. So quick. The future is alright.
