Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Welcomes Kage

Introduced this weekend at the Capcom Cup, Kage is the newest fighter to join the roster. With the end of the first season over, Executive Producer Yoshinori Ono revealed Kage, which is the embodiment of the Satsui. Basically, if you’ve followed the series, Evil Ryu was the corrupted version of Ryu, who eventually found a way to banish this negativity from his body.

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.

Talk about confusing, right?

Kage is available for purchase o both PlayStation 4 and Steam, today.
