Another NEW challenger has been introduced to the Street Fighter V roster!
Rashid was recently revealed at the Games 15 event in Dubai, where Yoshinori Ono took to the stage to introduce the newest member of the Street Fighter family to the crowd. Attendees at Games 15 were then treated to a brand new playable demo starring Rashid, in addition to all of the previously announced challengers: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Birdie, Charlie Nash, Necalli and R. Mika.
Check out the Rashid trailer above.
Joining the series from the Middle East, Rashid is an easy going and laid back character that has a very keen interest in technology and the latest gadgets on the market. His fighting style takes cues from parkour and he mixes it up with his unique ability to harness the power of wind. Always first in line to buy new tech, he uses these devices to research and create his fast-paced acrobatic moves, leaving his opponents in the dust and wondering what’s coming next.

Street Fighter V is due out in 2016.
Capcom released a new trailer at E3 for Street Fighter V revealing two new playable characters with Cammie and Birdie.
Both characters will make their return to the Street Fighter universe, where they join previously-announced classic characters Ryu, Chun-Li, Charlie Nash, and M. Bison. Many more new and returning characters will be added to the diverse roster, offering a wide variety of fighting styles for players to choose from.
Cammy has been a staple of the Street Fighter series since her debut in Super Street Fighter II, and returns faster and stronger than ever before in the upcoming Street Fighter V. Utilizing a wide variety of quick ground and aerial attacks to pressure her opponents, her rush down style will suit offensive minded players of all types.
Birdie makes his long awaited return, having last appeared in the Street Fighter Alpha series over 10 years ago. Completely redesigned and reimagined, Birdie’s “larger than life” look masks the fierce power packed into his long range chain attacks and up-close command grabs, making him a threat from every distance.
Also announced today, the first online beta program for Street Fighter V will be exclusive to PlayStation 4 players and will run for five days, from July 23 to July 28. In North America, those who pre-order the game through select retailers or through PlayStation Network (PSN) will be granted automatic access to the beta. In Europe and Asia, players interested in participating in the beta program can visit www.streetfighter.com and follow the various steps to sign up for a chance to join the fight! Additional beta programs will be taking place throughout the rest of the year and more details will be shared at a later date.
Finally, Capcom officially confirmed that Street Fighter V for PS4 and PC will be released in Spring 2016.
