If you haven't been following Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition's added story and lore, Ryu finally managed to overcome the Satsui no Hado dark forces for good, meaning Evil Ryu won't be back in the game. However, Capcom found a new way to use this concept, as that same force - the one that turned Gouki into Akuma - has now become sentient and given birth to a brand-new playable character called Kage.
Kage is also the fighter kicking off Season 4 of content for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on PC and PS4, and the trailer and screens below show his moves as well as his willingness to fight Akuma, Sagat, and of course Ryu.
He literally looks like a monster and we're loving his Metsu Shoryuken already, but what do you think about the new character?
