Today Capcom  announced a brand new playable character coming this month in Street Fighter V, Zeku the ninja master.

Zeku actually isn’t completely new, as he comes from deep down in the story of the Street Fighter series.

As the 38th master of the Bushinryu Ninjutsu school, Zeku appeared in Street Fighter Alpha 2 as Guy’s teacher.  After the conclusion of the training, the two dueled, and upon Guy’s victory, Zeku named him the 39th Bushinryu master, then he completely disappeared.

Today marks his return, and apparently he hasn’t lost his rough charm, and he’s ready to form a new fighting school with a new fighting style.

You can check out a trailer and a few screenshots below, showing Zeku in fast and overwhelming action. Interestingly, his second outfit definitely resembles that of Strider Hiryu.

If you want to see more, you can also check out the upcoming Arcade Edition of the game, that will finally bring back the much requested arcade mode.

Street Fighter V is currently available for PS4 and PC, while the Arcade Edition will launch on January 16, 2018.
