During a stage show at Dubai Games 2015 livestreamed via Periscope, Capcom Producer Yoshinori Ono announced the latest character to join the Street Fighter V cast.
Added an even better video.
For those wondering, they have named him Rashid.
16 characters isn't a ton, but the variety seems to be there. I wonder if they will add Sean from SF3.

Is Ono-san pulling a Harada-san Tekken move? OMG if that is true then SFV will represent many races around the world! or is this Sony's way of thanking the Middle East for 1 million PS4 units sold there?
ummmm......wondering what the two disagrees where for? Any comment
Loving the variety of characters keep it up Capcom.Game can't come fast enough.
Next up, an eskrima fighter from the Philippines!
If the stars align!
Nice........pity the dude panned to crowd mid fight though
It's actually Rasheed Wallace, his outfits are a Pistons' jersey, UNC Tar Heel's jersey, or street garbs. His special is getting technical fouls. EDIT: and he is indeed a Muslim
A coincidence that Tekken 7 also will have an arab character? Or copycats?
Sorry, but that was an ignorant comment.
It would be an ignorant comment if they didn't look exactly the same. You have to admit both characters are extremely close in design.
@Kakashi True. But both look like the Arab stereotype. Besides, Street Fighter has had nationally diverse characters long before Tekken. It was inevitable.
Street fighter has always represented characters from tons of different countries. Remember street fighter 2 versus screen? It would literally show a little plane flying to different countries where you'd fight someone of that nationality.
But just because they have always represented characters from a ton of different countries doesn't mean they couldn't have been inspired by Tekken 7 to bring this character on board. The little plane is irrelevant here, especially if it never stopped in his home before.
way better than cody
He has no similarities to Cody other than that Tornado.
Looks like Alaadin
He's wearing a Dragon Ball Z power scouter... IT'S OVER 9000!
Fighting style is sort of like a cross between cammy and vega. lots of air attacks, that you chain int a combo. Still...No player who uses him will be a match for my bearded ryu. Wait till you see what I do with JUST. ONE. KIIIIICK! bwuahahaha!Come on!...Come on then! And that goes for any of you....If I see you online. Im going to crush you...Im going to feed on your agony..beat you slowly, so you see your own mistakes and witness your own inferior skill, speed and reactions..take you apart..then absorb what is left of your skill, into my own...like cell in DBZ. In the meantime I will wait in the shadows..watching you all...waiting for SF5 to release....look at my avatar...my eyes are glowing behind these cool sunglasses.
I think a Arab character will fit perfect on Mortal Kombat
why is that?
Am I the only one who can barely see this video properly, thought this was an official reveal. Would of look better if my eyes were closed! On a good note nice to hear another new character will be entering the fray.
Other better quality videos have surface already. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I see from the posts that everyone is properly brainwashed.
