Kage Becomes the Latest World Warrior 

Hot on the heels of controversial ad inclusion, Capcom has unveiled Kage as the latest fighter to join the roster in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and he’s available today for players. Kage – which means “shadow” is a physical embodiment of the “Satsui” – a spirit born born out of humanity’s lust and obsession with power. The evil spirit “Satsui No Hado” is known for being able to hypothetically overtake Ryu and transform him into Evil Ryu. Learn more about Kage’s story and move set in the trailer below.

Players will recall that in the General Story, Ryu was able to overcome the “Satsui no Hado” in his battle against Necalli and regain control of himself. Now however, the “Satsui no Hado” has returned and manifests itself into this new physical form instead of controlling Ryu. Kage joins the battle now for both Steam and PlayStation 4 Players for $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.

Kage joins Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

A new update for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is also being launched today that includes balance changes for all 32 fighters currently available. Five of these fighters – F.A.N.G, Chun-Li, Abigail, Vega and M.Bison are receiving brand new moves to enhance their playstyle – giving players a new way to approach battles both as and versus these particular characters!
One final announcement was also made-  the Capcom Pro Tour will be returning in 2019 with the first premier taking place at Final Round on March 15th, 2019. The full schedule and rule set are expected to be released early in the new year. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is the official game of the 2019 Capcom Pro Tour.
