Why does he sound like super Mario when he jumps?

Solid addition to the Street Fighter series.

nidhogg1158d ago

Funny how Capcom decided to announce this character a day before 9/11.

bouzebbal1158d ago

what's the relation between the two?

frostypants1158d ago

Only funny because dumb people might think all Arabs are terrorists.

Just had to mention hes Arab. Make sure to point out Ryu is Japanese too.

FullmetalRoyale1159d ago

Except we were told that twenty years ago.

Relax you sensitive crybaby.
Street fighter has always pointed out every fighters nationality since "street fight 2: the world warriors" days in which there is a world map that has you in a plan traveling to each different country where you will clearly see each fighters nationality.
example: Japan--> RYU (Japanese)
USSR--> Zangiff (Russian)
USA--> KEN (american) ... and so on...
So chill the F#@K out.

It's a shame that they put Vancouver as USA :P (just an observation)

So the mere mention of someone's ethnicity is offensive now?

ZaWarudo1159d ago

Yep. People are very sensitive now, be mindful of their feelings!
You don't want to anger them and have them talk about how offended they were on their blog.

81BX1159d ago

Maybe thats what hes trying to say.... why mention that? Of all the things they could've said instead they chose "Arab", because it would get more hits on 9/11 than saying street fighters new (insert fighting style here)! Rofl.

Grap1159d ago

how is 9/11 related to games or an arabic character in SFV?????

KwietStorm1159d ago

@81BX and any other negative nancies

Street Fighter has always been about "The World Warrior." It's in the title of Street Fighter II. The characters and the community alike, represent all parts of the world. It's actually pretty deeply ingrained in everything. So, when introducing a *new* character into Street Fighter, they're obviously going to say his ethnicity.

Fun fact: Ryu has been Japanese for the entirety of the franchise's 25+ year existence. So yea, they probably don't feel the need to mention that.

81BX1159d ago

How is that negative? You also just made my point for me again! Ryu is Japanese, dahlsim is indian.... they only mentioned he was arab to stirr up some people. So fall back relax no one is trying to hate on sf. Why dont they say Japanese ryu is in the game?

This is why Streeto Fighter is subtitled "The World Warrior"

I bet his entrance music is :
Back pack! Back pack! Back pack! Back pack!

deno1159d ago

Calm down liberal boy.

WelkinCole1159d ago

?? Liberals love diversity and they would support noting peoples ethnicity.

What the hell is going on there exactly? lol Hard to keep up with all that.. Street Fighter II sure has changed over the years.. Graphics look AMAZING though.

Whirlwind_Fanfare_081159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

I'm loving the fact that capcom and bandai namco are creating arabian fighters for their games. In before somebody make some stupid terrorist joke about him!

Edit: dammit, too late!

TheTimeDoctor1159d ago

How about...this dude is the bomb!

mafiahajeri1159d ago (Edited 1159d ago )

Lool I'm Arab and I chuckled not going to lie...

OT: nice to see Arabian characters, we have some crazy good talent here. Especially in Tekken and street fighter.

frostypants1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

They've done a good job with creating fighters from all corners of the globe. Wonder what's next...maybe a really polite Canadian fighter, who apologizes profusely when he wins? But really, some sort of crazy roided out Canadian Mountie would be kind of cool.

Swiggins1159d ago

Dude looks insanely cool, love his techniques. Can't wait to play him and see how he handles.
