Zeku announced for Street Fighter 5

At South East Asia Major 2017 this weekend, Capcom delivered as promised.

The last character of Street Fighter 5's Season 2 is finally upon us, and as had been expected, it's Guy's former master, Zeku.

As the 38th successor of the Bushinryu School, he's a veteran combatant and a seasoned ninja warrior who helped forge Guy into the competent fighter he is today.

Although it's a bit hard to tell what exactly is going on, Zeku seems to have two different appearances he can shift between, one much younger than his regular one, and looking very Strider-esque.

It appears as though this newcomer may tag team with another member of his ninja clan while fighting, or perhaps he regains his youth somehow. Though it's early, this may suggest a multi-stance character not unlike Gen from Street Fighter 4, or Vega with or without his claw in SF5.

Zeku will be available for purchase on October 24th. Check out his image gallery here, which includes alternate costumes for both Zeku and his alter ego.
