Also: Welcome to Street Fighter V, Alex(#”/(&!# FINALLY.)
So we got news that Alex was going to be the first DLC character indeed…and he’ll be in March!
Alex fans have waited way too long. I was actually expecting Balrog, given he’s apparently very solidly done in game already, but they threw this lovely curveball which got some damn hype up!
I’m almost expecting, since Alex was first in line of the pic, for the next two to be Guile and Balrog as well. (Would be fitting to sort of get the other Shadoloo guy in and since Guile is heavily involved with Nash who is looking at Guile’s picture, I’d see them getting in.) I’d love Urien to be in earlier than later-given it’s been forever for him too-but they may want to book-end the first year DLC with ‘Old Timers who Hadn’t Been Seen awhile.’)
Really looking forward to how they handle him. He’ll have his grappling and striking mix I imagine; probably a 5 power, low maneuverability type with good reach. Able likely to strip off a health bar with speed, he’ll probably have his business as usual moves(air stampede, chop, etc). Command grabs will of course be there and I look forward to seeing what they do with his V-Skill and V-Trigger. I don’t see him being high-offensive like Necalli. I can see him being pretty good at filling a stun meter potentially with brutal hits. (His anti-air for some reason may be lacking in this, I get a feeling.)
In any case, again, HAPPY. Well deserved first DLC spot, Alex. Your fans are finally getting what Capcom have been leaving out for far too long.
