Another look at Alex's V-Skill 2 shows us that specials can be chained on hit AND block in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

Earlier this week, we got a sneak peek at the new V-Skills for Blanka, Alex, and Kage. The next day, we received a more detailed breakdown for Blanka's V-Skill 2, the Shout of Earth.

Not surprisingly, we now have a better look at yet another V-Skill 2. This time, Alex is "ready" to show off what he can do with his newest trick.

Similar to Alex's V-Skill 1, his second V-Skill causes him to take a moment to power up a future action. Instead of stating that he's "all warmed up," he declares himself "ready."

After doing this, Alex is then permitted the ability to cancel specials into other specials. After doing this once, he'll have to perform his V-Skill 2 in order for him pull this off again.

Previously, it was only demonstrated that Alex was able to chain specials upon hit. However, we now have confirmation that this can also be done on block for mix up potential.

More than likely, Alex will automatically gain V-Gauge upon using his V-Skill 2 as this is how he is able to generate meter with V-Skill 1.
