Abigail, Final Fight's super human hot-rodder, joins Street Fighter 5 on July 25th - here are the details on how he plays

Over the weekend, Street Fighter 5 Season 2's fourth DLC character was unveiled. Abigail, the super human hot-rodder from Final Fight, joins the battle on July 25th.

A post this morning over on Capcom Unity shared more details on what we can expect from the 8 ft. giant. Abigail was one of the top members of the Mad Gear gang. He has since locked down the Bay Area of Metro City and terrorizes it with his immense size.

Naturally, Abigail is a gear head -- the tires around his biceps are a dead giveaway. In Street Fighter 5, his is looking for his prized monster truck. We will be able to see how this plays out in Abigail's character-specific story mode.

Abigail has two command throws, and though you'd expect him to be a traditional grappler because of his stature, that isn't the case here. In fact, his key attack is his Nitro Charge run.

This special move has one hit of armor (two when using the EX version) and has four follow ups. He can transition into a stiff punch, command grab, overhead or V-Skill, making for some interesting mix ups.

We have included a gallery of screenshots below that show more of Abigail in-game. You can also see one of the scenes from his story mode, as well as his Story and Battle costumes. If you missed his official reveal trailer, you can find it here.

V-Moves / Critical Art


V-Skill: Hungabee

Abigail thrusts his sizeable belly forwards (either high or low) countering the opponent’s attack and setting himself up for a combo opportunity.

V-Trigger: Max Power

After popping his two-bar V-Trigger, Abigail can charge up his four different heavy punches for one hit of armour and extended juggles. A full charge will break the opponent’s guard.

Critical Art: Abigail Special

Abigail slams his opponent with a downward open-palm strike that puts them into a daze. He then hoists them into the air, pummels them like a makeshift speedbag before launching a savage hook that shatters the screen.
