To celebrate the wrap up of the Capcom Pro Tour at CEO 2016 Capcom dropped a Street Fighter V Balrog reveal trailer, announcing that he would be joining the game along with Ibuki in the June update. On top of that, the trailer also teases Juri, and a surprisingly well-clothed Urien.
The Street Fighter V June update will add not only Ibuki as a playable character, but also Balrog. Not only that, but EVO founder Mr. Wizard has also announced that both characters will be tournament legal for the upcoming EVO 2016.
The trailer also reveals Juri and Urien as upcoming playable characters for Street Fighter V.
Juri is a fan favourite South Korean Taekwondo from Super Street Fighter IV. She’s the first character in the series to use Taekwondo as her “thing”. She’s also the one who a lot of people think might be based on Jolyne Kujo from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean.
You would be forgiven for not recognising Urien at first in the Balrog trailer, as he’s wearing a lot more clothes than usual. Urien made his debut appearance in Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact, where he’s best known for his pants-clad fighting attire. In Street Fighter V it seems he’ll wear his business suit until battle, and not only in cutscenes. We can only hope for an alternate outfit.
What do you think about how the Street Fighter V roster is swelling with all this additional DLC? Let us know!
