As with all newcomers in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition Seth brings with them a new character story addition that offers a little background leading up to the game's current events.

When Seth was first revealed back at Capcom Cup to have a totally new look, many of us wondered exactly how the character got there. While the SF5 character story doesn't offer a ton of details, we do get a basic idea of how SF4 Seth became SF5 Seth.

We join the action as Juri fiddles, in an entirely cavalier manner, with extremely sensitive and highly important Shadaloo Intimidation Network tech. Hitting a few buttons on a laptop translates to reviving Seth, who is now in a brand new body.

With the same conscience (and voice actor) from their SF4 appearance, Seth is at first a bit confused about what's going on. They then transition to being enraged and wanting nothing more than to attack M. Bison.

Seth is drawn to Bison's Psycho Power, which winds up leading them to a train station in London where Ed and Falke (two clones made for Bison, not unlike Seth) are hanging out. Seth sees only the Psycho Power aura they produce and mistakes them for Bison. Super easy SF5 AI fights then ensue.

We have footage of the vengeful boss' pre-story, posted by YouTuber Soji, embedded below. Give it a watch and let us know what you think of Seth in SF5 thus far in the comments after.
