It’s no real surprise to this Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition community that Blanka was coming shortly — that much was revealed months back in Capcom Cup in Anaheim. A brand-new trailer from Capcom announced that players can start using Blanka as early as next week.
Seen in the video below, the Brazillian-backed Blanka is as mobile as in battle. Originally Launched in Street Fighter II, Blanka is a otherwise feral human that’s otherwise docile in nature — cherishing family over all else. Based on Capcom’s announcement, his story in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will focus on a cryptic sales pitch to the Brazillian miracle to get an action figure, of all things:
In SFV: AE, Blanka has adapted, and is currently living with his mom. 1 afternoon, an questionable salesman approaches him and offers a means to create Blanka renowned by mass creating a doll created in Blanka’s likeness. Can it work?
The trailer itself is centered on the gameplay, in which it is clear Blanka is a edition to the roster. V-Triggers showcase at the video include Jungle Dynamo and Lighting Beast along with also an Art. Blanka will become available for downloading on February 20, 2018.
For all those from the loop, Blanka is your third part readily available in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition‘s Season 3 line-up, with the very first being Sakura. It’s been just two decades since the initial launch of Street Fighter V, and DualShockers provided a quick retrospective on how the game has changed — and, what’s more, enhanced — since what was initially provided by launch.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is currently available for PC and PS4; as stated earlier, Blanka will probably be arriving on February 20, 2018. You can check out the brand new gameplay trailer under revealing of the skillset:
