The final fighter for Street Fighter V has finally been revealed with no previous leaks! This final fighter is called F.A.N.G, a mysterious combatant who seems to be one part Jiangshi and other part Thin Man from XCOM. As the second in command for Shadaloo and a professional assassin, F.A.N.G uses poison to drain their opponent’s life so he can then glide in and deliver the final blow.
Along with F.A.N.G, we got a look at a new stage being the Shadaloo Base. F.A.N.G seems to have replaced Sagat in the Shadaloo hierarchy, as seen by his face replacing that of the Muay Thai beast on the mini Mount Shadaloo in the back. F.A.N.G’s V-Skill is Nishodoku, which sees him launch a slow moving poison projectile. If it hits, it will slowly drain the opponent’s health bar and turning it purple to show that the toxins are in effect. His V-Trigger is Dokunomu, which has him surrounding himself in a poison cloud, dealing constant damage to enemies close to him. F.A.N.G seems to be all about using his slippery movement and setting up devious mixups to deal as much damage as possible through his poisons. Being put in the corner by a F.A.N.G with his poison cloud active should be scary.
Also, Ono finally confirmed that the 6 additional characters that were found in the beta’s code for Street Fighter V are legit and that Guile, Alex, Urien, Ibuki, Juri and Balrog will be coming to SFV in 2016. You can also buy a Street Fighter V Season Pass to unlock all of these characters straight away but if you don’t want to put any extra cash down, you can buy all of these new fighters using the in-game Fight Money of Street Fighter V which you can unlock by playing the game.
