Before the Street Fighter V finals began at EVO 2018 Yoshinori Ono, the game’s executive producer, took the stage to reveal some new gameplay of two previously announced DLC characters.

The first character we got a chance to look at is named G, a newcomer to the Street Fighter series. He’s the self-proclaimed “President of the World,” and is able to use power he acquires from the planet while fighting, increasing his “Presidentiality.” G’s a character that charges up throughout fights, which in turn gives him stronger special moves and more combos.

Fan favorite Sagat is the second character we got to see. Sagat first appeared as a boss character in the original Street Fighter and became playable for the first time in Street Fighter II: Champion Edition. Since then he’s appeared in a whole bunch of other Street Fighter titles. Sagat’s move set remains true to his previous iterations. His attacks cover long distances, he’ll also be using his iconic Tiger Shot, Tiger Uppercut, and Tiger Knee Crush.

Best of all, both G and Sagat will be available in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition beginning tomorrow, August 6.

You can purchase both characters separately for $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money. If you already own the $29.99 Season 3 character pass they’ll both be available to you when they release. Below you can check out some new screenshots of the two characters as well as both EVO trailers. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is available now on PS4 and PC.
