Street Fighter fans of the green man have reason to get excited! Capcom has released a video announcing the return of Blanka to Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition! Starting February 20th, players can download the fan favorite and once again get into an animalistic rage destroying their competitors.
Blanka will come with his original move set, and also something new, a new grab, called “Wild Hunt,” where he leaps towards the opponent to claw them!
Capcom dropped a little backstory for the return on their blog: “In SFV: AE, Blanka is living peacefully with his mother, and has adapted well to being introduced back into society. One day, a suspicious salesman approaches him and offers a way to make him famous by mass producing a doll made in his likeness. Will it work? Find out in his character story mode!”
If you’re a Blanka fan, get ready to roll out on February 20th!
