Yes, folks, it has been confirmed! Abigail can indeed be jumped over, crossed up, and thrown in Street Fighter 5.

Capcom UK's Matt Edwards sent out a tweet to address the question that people have been asking since the character's official reveal on Sunday. In the clip, we see that Akuma can jump over a standing Abigail and cross him up.

We also see that Akuma lands several regular throws on the giant, despite his size. You can check out the clip below.

If you're hoping to see more ABigail soon, you're in luck. Winner Stays On -- a weekly event that sees some of the UK's best players compete against each other -- will have a showcase for the character tomorrow.

It is not uncommon for the event to feature upcoming Street Fighter 5 characters on stream, and we can expect Matt Edwards to be in attendance to share more information about Abigail with viewers.

The stream usually goes live around 12:30 p.m. PDT / 8:30 p.m. UK time. Be sure to tune in here at EventHubs as we'll have the latest from the broadcast on our front page.
