Street Fighter 5 closes out its Season 2 characters today with the release of Zeku -- the ever-changing ninja.

First seen in Street Fighter Alpha 2, Zeku is a master of Bushinryu -- a form of Ninjitsu. After teaching Guy the art, his pupil was able to achieve the title of 39th Master of Bushinryu.

Zeku then disappeared, never to be seen again (or so we thought). He has returned in Street Fighter 5 looking to start his own ninja group and find a new fighting style.

This fighter utilizes two different stances in battle: old Zeku and young Zeku. Switching between the two gives players access to different tools, and mastering both styles will be the key to success here.

You'll be able to purchase Zeku for $5.99 USD or 100,000 Fight Money. If you purchase the Season 2 Character Pass, however, you'll gain access to all of this year's DLC characters.

The Season 2 Character Pass is available for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 and will grant pass holders access to Akuma, Kolin, Ed, Abigail, Menat, and Zeku. The pass includes Premium Battle Costumes with colors 3-10 unlocked and default costume colors 3-10 for each character. Season 2 Character Pass holders will also receive an exclusive PS4 theme.

We also have Zeku's full story playthrough and completed trials for your viewing pleasure.

In addition to Zeku, players will be able to pick up three new alternate costumes. The Sports costumes set will feature new digs for Zangief, Karin, and Kolin.

These costumes see Zangief equipping gladiator armor, Karin getting ready for a horseback ride, and Kolin as a figure skater. Each one will run you $3.99/ €3.99
