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.
