Following the announcement of Zeku, the new playable DLC character that will appear in Street Fighter V, Capcom released a new gameplay trailer showing his moves.
The video, narrated by Capcom Community & Esports Manager Matt Edwards, explains Zeku’s moves, and his interesting mechanic.
Zeku can use an ancient ninja technique to revert to his younger form (in which he strikingly resembles Strider Hiryu), and the interesting thing is that his normal and special moves change completely depending on his form. Old Zeku is more of a ranged fighter, while young Zeku is more effective up close.
This means that he is the hardest character to learn because you basically need to get used to two move sets, but once mastered, he presents the opponent with the unique challenge of facing two entirely different styles in the same match.
At the end of the trailer, we see Zeku’s story, battle and nostalgia costumes, which interestingly also change when you switch between old and young form.
Zeku will be released on October 24th. Street Fighter V is currently available for both PS4 and PC.
You can check out the trailer below, and you can also read about the upcoming Arcade Edition of the game, that will finally bring back the much-requested arcade mode.
