In addition, CAPCOM announced that it has added Ken to Street Fighter V. The character will be redesigned to be “more aggressive” and distinct from Ryu, as the two characters have always been similar.
In a Capcom Unity blog post outlining exhibit plans for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con, the wearable Mega Man Helmet has been confirmed.
Capcom will be bolstering its E3 showing at Comic-Con (Booth #215) with hands-on time available to fans for Street Fighter V, Mega Man Legacy Collection, Resident Evil 0, DMC4 Special Edition, Resident Evil Revelations 2, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. In the video below you can see the new-look Ken showing off some of his iconic fire-imbued kicks. The latter seems more likely.
“Capcom is excited to offer such a unique Street Fighter collectible to all its fans, utilising cutting edge 3D technology”.
Capcom also revealed that they will not have an arcade release for “Street Fighter 5” anytime soon, and when asked about the mature rating of the game, Capcom answered that they intend to make “SF5” as a non-mature franchise and the mature rating is simply an error.
Capcom has announced a real-life, officially-branded, Mega Man helmet for all those fans out there wishing to cosplay as the blue bomber. But on the other, that duality with Ryu was a big part of who both characters really were. Winners will receive cool PS4 faceplates that will hopefully have exclusive Street Fighter V artwork.
Street Fighter V is now set for a release on PS4 and PC in Sping 2016.
