Zeku Revealed in Street Fighter V

Capcom has unveiled the final season 2 DLC character and his name is Zeku. Last seen as an NPC in one of Guy’s endings in the Street Fighter Alpha series, he brings with him a handful of Guy’s signature attacks, as well as a few tricks of his own. In particular, make note of Zeku’s long-ranged sweeping kicks.

I’m…a bit disappointed in this reveal. Maybe my expectations were too high, as I’ve followed the rumors for months and expected more out of an evolution of Guy’s play style. This looks a bit too samey in terms of how he fights in comparison to Guy, as well as how similar his play style is relative to the rest of the cast.

Nevertheless, he may surprise me when he’s released at the end of the month. Fingers crossed!
