Get ready Street Fighter fans as the next Season 3 character is joining the roster next week. Capcom has announced that fan favorite Blanka will be released next week and will be available as part of the Season 3 Character Pass or via in game purchase with Fight Money.
You can read the description for Blanka below and watch the new trailer.
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!
