On Sunday, Capcom announced a new Street Fighter V character at Evo, Abigail from Final Fight, and today we get to see hos moves in a new trailer.

Abugail is eight feet tall, which means that he is the tallest character in the history of the Street Fighter franchise.

The trailer is narrated by Capcom Community Manager Matt Edwards as he explains all the tricks this giant has up his massive sleeve (actually, it appears to be a tire), and he certainly seems to have quite a few.

Abigail comes from the classic 1989 beat ’em up Final Fight, where he plays the role of the final boss of the second-to-last stage. He is a lieutenant of the Mad Gear Gang and an absolute brute, as his size probably shows.

He will come  on July 25th as part of the Season 2 Character Pass, alongside Akuma, Kolin, Ed and two more characters.

Alongside the new character, July 25th will also deliver a dedicated stagfe, named Metro City Bay Area. It’s inspired by the stage in which Abigail originally appeared in Final Fight.

You can enjoy the trailer below, alongside the first official screenshots. If you want to see more, you can check out some more costumes and stages that will come on July 25th, the latest batch released at the end of last month, the trailer that revealed the most recently-released character Ed, and quite a bit of gameplay showing off his moves.

Streey Fighter V  is currently available for PS4 and PC.
