During the Capcom Cup, Street Fighter Executive Producer Yoshinori Ono unveiled a new fighter for the upcoming season of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition: Kage, the embodiment of “Satsui,” is an evil form of Ryu. Kage is available to purchase today for both PlayStation 4 and Steam, for MSRP $5.99 / €5.99 / £4.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.
Here’s an overview of Kage
Kage, meaning “shadow,” is the physical embodiment of the evil spirit, “Satsui no Hado,” that could hypothetically overtake Ryu and turn him into the character Evil Ryu. Street Fighter V fans will recall Ryu overcame the “Satsui no Hado” in the General Story against Necalli, and regained control of his former self. “Satsui no Hado” is now back, and instead of overtaking Ryu’s body has now found a way to manifest into its own physical form.
