Just before the Ultra Street Fighter 4 top 8 -- EVO 2015's big finale -- Capcom unveiled the next fighter set to join the Street Fighter 5 roster.


Today, we saw the first brand new fighter to enter the game -- Necalli.

Necalli is the first of four original warriors making their debut in Street Fighter 5 and entering the Street Fighter franchise for the first time. Necalli is a savage fighter that battles using hard-hitting, close-range attacks. He has a command throw, a ground pound that can be hit at different places on screen, and more.
