We knew he was coming from the previous reveal trailer for the Season 3 characters but Street Fighter's famed green wildman from the Amazon, Blanka, will be joining the SFV:AE roster on February 20th
Blanka returns with his familiar cannonball rolls and electricity attacks. The character appears to have learned a few new tricks with the ability to crouch below fireballs, then either launch the opponent or leap towards them to take advantage of the situation. His V-Triggers also enable him to hit the opponent multiple times with his cannonball rolls, change direction and enhance his electricity attacks.
Will Blanka end up being top-tier when he becomes available in SFV:AE? We won't have to wait long as he will be added to the game's roster next Tuesday (20/02). Then we'll find out how effective (troll-like) the wildman will be.
You can check out his character trailer below which highlights his moves, V-Triggers, Critical art and costumes (the mascot costume is going to appear online a lot, I guarantee it).
