Capcom announces newest fighter to Street Fighter V


Capcom has finally revealed the latest addition to Street Fighter V‘s roster: Abigail, the giant bulky grappler, who excels in heavy hits and throws. As the physically largest playable fighter yet, Abigail is almost twice as large as regularly sized fighters like KIen and Ryu.

Originally debuting in Capcom’s Final Fight fighting game series, Abigail has now made the leap to Capcom’s flagship fighting franchise, albeit with something of a redesign.

Abigail is the fourth released DLC fighter as part of the Season 2 Character Pass; owners of the pass have already gained access to Akuma, Ed and Kolin.

Abigail and the Metro City Bay Area Stage will be available for owners of the Season 2 Character Pass ($44.95AU) on the 26th of July. Season 2 Character Pass will also include the Champion’s Choice outfit for Guile, the Ring of Pride and Suzaku Castle stages as well as additional outfits for the Season One DLC characters.
