Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition has been one of the biggest, most lucrative of the immortal saga. Since its release, Capcom has attempted to grow and add to the game with updates to characters, the development of the Capcom Pro Tour Esports league, and the addition of new characters. With that in mind, Capcom has revealed a new character making his way to the epic fighting game, the evil spirit of Satsui, known as Kage!
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.
Kage’s hard-hitting style is available to purchase now on Playstation 4 and Steam for $5.99 / €5.99 / £4.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.
In addition to the release of Kage, Capcom also announced that they’ve updated all 32 characters to create balance and even added moves to F.A.N.G, Vega, Chun-Li, Abigail, and M. Bison.
Kage and this update are now available to download for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition! Also, keep an eye out for the Capcom Pro Tour 2019, premiering March 15, 2019, with Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition as the featured game!
