The whopping great lad joins his pal Hugo, a fellow Mad Gear gang member who has been part of the Street Fighter Universe since Second Impact.

Capcom has announced at Evo 2017 that another playable character will be joining the Street Fighter V fighting roster on July 25.

Starting with Street Fighter 5, the next DLC character will be Abigail from Final Fight (Capcom's Double Dragon knock-off).

Abigail is the fourth character to be released in this second season of Street Fighter V reveals and he features a number of interesting moves and attacks, from standard punches and kicks, to more complex throws and even a few drop kick moves - impressive for someone of that size. Here's the "Street Fighter 5" Abigail gameplay trailer, which gives us a brief glimpse of the Metro City Bay Area stage as well. The date will also see the arrival of Street Fighter V retro costumes, specifically for Alex, Ibuki, and Juri.

On the same day, the publisher is also launching another new stage and a further set of outfits; this time inspired by the upcoming Capcom Pro Tour. Suzaku Castle is meant to be Ryu's dojo where he lives and trains with his friend and master. There are two more characters coming this year, so start taking guesses as to what can possibly top this.

The Season 2 character pass is being sold for $30.
