This evening at EVO 2018, Capcom revealed G and Sagat for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. The other surprise in store was that both fighters would be out tomorrow — August 6, 2018.

G is the fifth DLC character for Street Fighter 5 season 3. Earlier at the tournament, we found evidence of the character's backstory which the community was able to put together, from pieces of a word puzzle, which was some sort of proclamation from G.

Sagat is the Muay Thai master, and struts into fight with a very large tiger by his side, referencing the word he shouts when he throws a fireball.

Both fighter's moves sets are heavily showcased in the new trailers, going over both of their V-Triggers. G has a theme song that tells a bit about the character too.

G is officially labeled as a "man of mystery," who draws upon energy from the earth to strengthen his powers. He wants to unite the people as one. Capcom also hired an actor to read a speech on stage before his official reveal.

Sagat, the Solitary King, retains a similar move set to his previous appearances, including his tiger shot, tiger uppercut and tiger knee. His iconic Thailand stage is also showcased. He's the 6th DLC character for Season 3.

G and Sagat join Sakura, Blanka, Falke, Cody. They're available for $5.99 USD each, or 100,000 Fight Money. You can find images and their trailers below.
