A new challenger arrives, Abel joins the World Warriors


sfiv.jpgNow that we’re done revealing some of the classic Street Fighter II cast, Capcom unveiled the second brand new character in Street Fighter IV. Abel has ties to the Shadoloo and Famitsu notes one of his moves looks similar to Sean’s (Street Fighter III) Ryubi Kyaku. This bumps the AOU Amusement Expo roster to ten characters and two of them are brand new.


Also Street Fighter IV is going to use Taito Type X2 board. Sure, arcade aficionados probably already know this information, but it hasn’t been kicked into the spotlight. Other games powered by Taito Type X2 hardware include KOF Maximum Impact Regulation A, King of Fighters XII and Arc System Works’ new fighter BlazBlue.
