And he's one bad-looking mofo. In fact, Kage, the game's newest warrior is "the embodiment of 'Satsui', a raging spirit that was born out of humanity’s obsession with power". He's also linked to Ryu, and is available now for purchase on PlayStation 4 and Steam.
And at roughly $6 or 100,000 Fight Money, he's definitely worth a look, especially after you check out his character introduction video embedded after the official line on Kage from Capcom.
Kage, meaning “shadow,” is the physical embodiment of the evil spirit, “Satsui no Hado,” that could hypothetically overtake Ryu and turn him into the character Evil Ryu. Street Fighter V fans will recall Ryu overcame the “Satsui no Hado” in the General Story against Necalli, and regained control of his former self. “Satsui no Hado” is now back, and instead of overtaking Ryu’s body has now found a way to manifest into its own physical form.
Capcom has also revealed that a new update also live from today brings balance tweaks to the roster, while F.A.N.G, Vega, Chun-Li, Abigail, and M. Bison have all been given new moves to "enhance their playstyle".
And finally, Capcom has also set a start date for the Capcom Pro Tour for 2019, which will kick off on March 15 with the full schedule to be revealed early next year.
Check out Kage in action in the video embedded below.
