Meet Super Street Fighter IV’s Last New Character

That’s Hakan, an oil-wrestler from Turkey. And awww…he’s getting ready to give Crimson Viper a big hug! How cute. And his loving ways don’t stop there. According to Capcom, “Using lubricant to assist in battle, Hakan has some of the most insane moves and Ultra combos in the series.”


Super Street Fighter IV is out on April 27th in the U.S. Here’s a few screenshots of Hakan in action. I love the one with him setting himself on fire.

    I can’t help but think of something horrible when I read that quote…

  • fallen

    What’s… on… his head?

    • It looks like a Katamari, doesn’t it?

  • FireCouch

    He beats the other 4 new characters by a mile

  • Hakan, pleased to “(rMeet” you!

  • Code


  • I think that’s supposed to be C.Viper’s flaming kick, just reflected in his protective oily coating. Here’s a thought, will Hakan have an instant out of any of Zangief’s or Abel’s command grabs? If so he’s my new main.

  • Jaxx-Leviathan

    That’s one crazy weird character design. Kinda reminds me of one of those god-statues outside buddhist temples, if I remember correctly… Raijin and kazejin or something?

  • abasm

    What’s with the neon blue hair? Is that common amongst Turkeyian Oil WRASSLERS?

  • Man, I normally try to put more into my comments than this but I can’t come up with much other than “WHOA SO AWESOME :DD”

  • wharcraff

    Nice move on Capcom’s part. They could have gone the easy route and made Haggar. Instead they added something new to the mix. Bravo.

    I’d be awesome if he caught of fire from any flame based attacks when oiled up.

  • thebanditking

    This guys is awesome. He is just so hilariously over the top and crazy, that you can’t help but like him. Looks like Super Street Fighter 4 will end up being even more the “true” next game in the series.

    I hope he’s not another comedy character that no one will use online.
