The Young Commander, Ed, joins Street Fighter V!



Welcome Shadaloo minions!

We are happy to announce the third Season 2 Street Fighter V character, Ed. As mentioned in our previous blogpost about the next CFN Beta, Ed and all previously released characters will be playable for all beta participants for the duration of the test.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXnXrHiR4Cs

At a young age, Ed was kidnapped and experimented on by S.I.N., a division of Shadaloo, in order to become a replacement body for M. Bison. Many of you might remember a young Ed appearing in Rose’s Street Fighter IV story and Balrog’s story in Super Street Fighter IV. Due to the experiments, Ed’s body ages faster than normal humans until they are old enough to be suited for battle. Since Balrog raised Ed, his fighting is centered on boxing but since he carries M. Bison’s genes, his fighting style is enhanced by Psycho Power.



Ed and Balrog in Super Street Fighter IV





Night after night he is troubled by Bison's ghost, and struggles desperately to prevent M. Bison from possessing his body. Be sure to check out his character story to find out more!

V-Skill: Psycho Snatcher



Ed releases Psycho Power from his palm, pulling himself or opponents depending on how long he charges it up.

V-Trigger: Psycho Cannon



With a full V-meter, Ed releases an enormous amount of Psycho Power. He can follow alongside it, allowing him to pepper in shots when it connects with the opponent.

Critical Art: Psycho Barrage



Ed lunges forward with a series of punches. If at any point he connects, he’ll continue weaving around the opponent, slipping in quick combinations of Psycho-punches ending with a powerful uppercut.

What makes Ed especially unique is how players perform his special moves. His special moves have simple inputs; they only require simultaneous button presses, repeatedly pressing a button, or holding down a button. Only Ed’s Critical Art is done by inputting a traditional motion.

Also coming alongside Edare his Story and Premium Battle costumes.





Don’t forget, the Season 2 Character Pass is available for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 and will grant pass holders with Akuma, Kolin and Ed in addition to three brand new fighters to be announced later this year. The pass comes with Premium Battle Costumes with colors 3-10 unlocked and default costume colors 3-10 for each character. Additionally, Season 2 Character Pass holders will receive an exclusive PS4 theme!



In the coming weeks, you’ll learn even more about Ed, including his release timing so stay tuned! For the latest updates on Street Fighter V, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
