Everyone, meet Rashid. Rashid, everyone.
Capcom took the opportunity at the Games15 show in Dubai to reveal 'Street Fighter''s first Middle Eastern character, a lightning-fast wind rider named Rashid, to the world. There's only a few bits and pieces leaking out of the show so far about him, but IGN did manage to land the very first trailer showing off gameplay, where Rashid is shown relying on nimble, Vega-like flips, kicks, and aerials. Along with, you know, harnessing the power of the winds themselves to decimate his enemies.
This would mark the second all-new character in 'SFV', and the very first Middle Eastern character in the main 'Street Fighter' roster, although, there was Pullum Purna in the 'EX' series if you count those titles, which, let's be honest, no one does.
