    Yes it gives me 90s trance vibes, which I love.

    Anyway, Blanka already?

    First appearing in Street Fighter II, Blanka (birth name, Jimmy), survived a plane crash over the Amazon and learned to fend for himself by fighting wild animals and developing survival skills. He eventually found his way to civilization where he met Sakura and Dan, and developed deep friendships with them over time. Blanka’s mother, Samantha, happened to see him on TV and tearfully reunited with him to bring him home.

    In SFV: AE, Blanka is living peacefully with his mother, and has adapted well to being introduced back into society. One day, a suspicious salesman approaches him and offers a way to make Blanka famous by mass producing a doll made in Blanka’s likeness. Will it work? Find out in his character story mode!

    Blanka’s gameplay remains animalistic in nature and sees him scratching, leaping, and pummeling opponents reflecting his time in the jungle. He retains his signature Electric Thunder attack that emits electrical currents around his entire body, which can be continuously performed by repeatedly pressing his punch buttons. Also returning are his multiple rolling attacks, which can be used to approach opponents from different angles or used as a combo ender.

    New to Blanka’s arsenal is a command grab called Wild Hunt, where he leaps forward and viciously scratches the opponent before throwing them a set distance away from him. This addition to his move set opens up more opportunities for Blanka to be aggressive.

    V-Skill: Coward Crouch

    Blanka immediately ducks for cover for a short time before rising back up. His V-Skill can avoid many attacks, including fireballs. After performing Coward Crouch, Blanka can follow up with either Wild Lift (Punch Button) or Raid Jump (Kick Button). Wild Lift sees Blanka move forward while swinging his arms up to launch the opponent in the air and can be followed up by a normal, special move, or even a Critical Art. Using Raid Jump, Blanka swiftly jumps in the air where he can use any mid-air attack to advance.

    V-Trigger I: Jungle Dynamo

    Blanka’s V-Trigger I gives his special roll attacks more damage and can then be followed up by certain attacks, including his Critical Art. It also powers up his Electric Thunder and changes the animation so Blanka steps forward while unleashing the electric current. On hit, the opponent is launched slightly in the air and can be followed up with a rolling attack.

    Finally, Jungle Dynamo unlocks Ground Shave Rolling (HP+HK), which can be used as a combo extender or a way to charge in. This move was a super move in previous games, but is now a special move in SFV: AE.

    V-Trigger II: Lightning Beast

    Lightning Beast unlocks a special move, Rolling Cannon (Direction + HP+HK), which can be performed after using Rolling Attack, Back Step Rolling, and Vertical Rolling. Rolling Cannon can be used in multiple ways, such as extending a combo for more damage or changing positions to surprise the opponent.

    Critical Art: Dynamic Rolling

    In this Critical Art, Blanka slams his opponent into the ground in a series of electrifying rolls that ends in a move reminiscent of Lightning Cannonball from Street Fighter IV.

    Available February 20th.

  12. What do you guys think of SF having guest characters? I'm not sure if they've ever been in one but seems most of the community would be against it? Just curious.

  14. Lol, what you got against Dante? He only has a move for EVERYTHING lol. Yea blanka seems interesting, like a juggle monster as far as I can tell. Never played him though, I'm waiting for SAGAT and I wish they'd bring in fei long.

    JBeezYBabY Mr. Righteous

    And thats why i dont want Dante lol HES OP AS FUCK! Especially after the short run MVCi had, yeah...I'm Dante'ed out playa.

    I love me some Blanka but not a fan of charged up characters. In other words, holding back then release. Interested to see how Faulke will play though. Something about a Bad bitch who wears blue lipstick with that 'I'm gonna fuck you up." look on her face. Its sessy ;)

    I think if it's in the Capcom world I am fine with it. I'm honestly burnt out with the NRS surprise gimmick guest characters lol.

    Blanka looks dope and at this rate we might actually see Sagat before Evo even! A Cody release around my birthday would be the shit.

    I'd hate it. There are so many characters I want back or that I want to debut in SF, that I'd be pretty pissed about guest characters.

    Exactly. I'd actually applaud Capcom if they didn't play follow the leader and start putting in guests just because other companies are doing so with their fighting games.
