Blanka has been one of the most iconic characters in the Street Fighter franchise. Yeah, we all know Ryu, his Hadoken, Ken, and the others but the hairy green monster known as Blanka was what I almost always associated with the illustrious fighting game. It came as a surprise to most when Street Fighter V didn’t include Blanka at launch, but Capcom is making up for that by including him in the next wave of characters in the Season 3 DLC download, coming February 20. Check him out in all his electrified glory in this new gameplay trailer!
In SFV: AE, Blanka is living peacefully with his mother, and has adapted well to being introduced back into society. One day, a suspicious salesman approaches him and offers a way to make Blanka famous by mass producing a doll made in Blanka’s likeness. Will it work? Find out in his character story mode!
Blanka joins Sakura, Falke, Cody, G, and Sagat when the Season 3 Character Pass for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition releases on Tuesday, February 20, 2018! Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is available now.
