The shocking behemoth is setting up for his electrifying Street Fighter V release and players are preparing to either be terrified or disappointed. Blanka has had a legacy of terrorising newer Street Fighter players and it’ll be interesting to see if his latest incarnation will have the same effect. The trailer for Street Fighter V’s next DLC character has dropped and it’s filled with all sorts of wild moves.
In SFV: AE, Blanka is living peacefully with his mother, and has adapted well to being introduced back into society. One day, a suspicious salesman approaches him and offers a way to make Blanka famous by mass producing a doll made in Blanka’s likeness. Will it work? Find out in his character story mode!
Blanka is back and it’s going to be interesting to see if his charged-up gameplay is going to make waves in Street Fighter V. His design does feel a little off, what with hair coming out of some of the strangest places, but overall his gameplay does not look all that bad. They didn’t show off much of his signature Electric Thunder move, but hopefully one can assume it can cause as much trouble for players as before.
While there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of a reaction to the new character so far, there are a couple of jabs at his Story costume here. One particularly entertaining on comes from professional Super Smash. Bros player Anti. The story costume is quite ridiculous and one can imagine that losing to it might be a little embarrassing in a tournament setting.
If you beat me with this costume in tournament im lying to the TO and telling them I won pic.twitter.com/zhTQXPWXCm
