Abigail was announced for Street Fighter 5, at EVO 2017 by Yoshinori Ono. He's the 4th DLC character for Season 2.

He's an absolutely massive fighter, with giant muscles, and is said to be 8 feet tall. The space he takes up on screen is quite intimidating.

He has an armored running attack, and several of his other attacks appear to have armor as well.

Abigail originally made his debut in Final Fight in 1989.

He's based heavily on King Diamond, a heavy metal musician. Abigail is one of the prominent characters in King Diamond's music, and also the name of his second album.

The face paint Abigail wears is an homage to King Diamond. You can find his trailer below.

Abigail has changed dramatically since we last saw him in Final Fight, as he has a ridiculous amount of muscle mass.

He's also showing a very goofy personality, apparently driving an imaginary car as part of his intro animation. Showcasing more of his massive size, he has a few tires strapped to his belt via chains.

Abigail and the new Metro City Bay Area stage, will be available on July 25, 2017.
