At EVO 2015 this weekend, Capcom took the chance to reveal Necalli, the first of its original fighters introduced in Street Fighter V. This wild haired man sports a flaming mane that would make a lion blush in shame, and he is a grappler primarily focused on throwing techniques and quick attacks with his claws.

Necalli will be one of the sixteen characters available when Street Fighter V launches in March 2016, and he is also one of the four new characters Capcom has planned.

Initial impressions? He’s not so bad, but I still liked El Fuerte, Rufus, and C. Viper from Street Fighter IV better. Maybe my opinion will change when I finally get to control him.

Street Fighter V will be released for the PC and PlayStation 4 in March 2016.
