Capcom’s Street Fighter V adds Ed to Street Fighter V as the next seasons 2 character.
“Ed, the young commander, is the next character to join Street Fighter V as part of the Season 2 Character Pass.
Street Fighter V Ed Reveal Trailer
Previously appearing in the story of Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV, Ed’s experimental body aged him beyond his years until he was ready for battle.
Having been raised by Balrog, his fighting is centered on boxing, but Ed is enhanced by the Psycho Power carried within his genes from M. Bison. Use this power to perform special moves like the ‘Psycho Snatcher’ V-Skill, ‘Psycho Cannon’ V-Trigger and ‘Psycho Barrage’ critical art.
Unleash Ed’s Psycho Power when he joins Street Fighter V soon, along with his Story and Premium Battle costumes.”
During the Capcom Fighters Network Beta taking place for PlayStation 4 and PC from May 11-14, Ed and all previously released characters will be playable for all beta participants for the duration of the test.
V-Skill: Psycho Snatcher
Ed releases Psycho Power from his palm, pulling himself or opponents depending on how long he charges it up.
V-Trigger: Psycho Cannon
With a full V-meter, Ed releases an enormous amount of Psycho Power. He can follow alongside it, allowing him to pepper in shots when it connects with the opponent.
Critical Art: Psycho Barrage
Ed lunges forward with a series of punches. If at any point he connects, he’ll continue weaving around the opponent, slipping in quick combinations of Psycho-punches ending with a powerful uppercut.
What makes Ed especially unique is how players perform his special moves. His special moves have simple inputs; they only require simultaneous button presses, repeatedly pressing a button, or holding down a button. Only Ed’s Critical Art is done by inputting a traditional motion.
Also coming alongside Edare his Story and Premium Battle costumes.
The Street Fighter V Season 2 Character Pass is now available for £24.99 / €29.99 / $29.99 and will grant pass holders with Akuma, Kolin and Ed in addition to 3 brand new fighters to be announced later this year.
The pass comes with Premium Battle Costumes with colours 3-10 unlocked and default costume colors 3-10 for each character. Additionally, Season 2 Character Pass holders receive an exclusive PS4 theme.
Street Fighter V is available on PC and PlayStation 4.
