Capcom has unveiled some new and very interesting information on Necalli, Street Fighter 5's first brand new fighter. In a recent Famitsu post, a handful of new screenshots and details about Necalli were released.


According to the post, Necalli is an ancient warrior who feasts on souls. He smells his way to battle and will only face the strongest foes. "With overwhelming destructive force, he overpowers everything."

For the first time, we get an official breakdown of what Necalli's moves are called / what they do. In the description of his V-Trigger, Torrent of Power, we learn that Necalli can remain in his transformed state indefinitely. As a trade off, however, Necalli loses access to his V-Reversal during V-Trigger.

Hit the jump for a translation of Famitsu's post detailing Necalli's special moves.
Height: 190cm
Weight: 113kg
Occupation/Affiliation: Ancient Warrior
Likes: Souls of the strong

V-Reversal: Guiding Yell
Sends his opponent flying with a powerful roar. After repelling them, follow up by rushing in.

V-Trigger: Torrent of Power
Necalli releases his true power. All of his attacks become more powerful, with no time limit, but it's a double-edged sword that makes him unable to use his V-Reversal. Suppress your opponents with ancient power!

V-Skill: Power Collection
Necalli can send shockwaves through the ground. It's also possible to adjust the shockwave's location via directional input. This V-Skill can also be used in long-distance fights to limit your opponents' movement.

Special Moves:

Discus Guidance
Necalli rushes in while using both of his hands to tear at his opponent. This is well-used as a surprise attack or a combo ender.

Earth Mask
A simple yet exciting move where Necalli grabs his opponents head and smashes it into the ground. This exemplifies his herculean strength, as he waves the opponent about using just one hand.

Critical Arts:

Honor Ceremony
After a mighty roar, Necalli rushes in and smashes his opponent against the wall, and showers them with attacks. While the attacks are primitive in nature, they will undoubtedly lead to fatal wounds. Also, if he does this while in V-Trigger, what then... ?!
