Brand-new Street Fighter 5 character Necalli revealed

Necalli and his crazy hair are to debut in Street Fighter V.

Capcom has revealed a brand-new character who will join the cast of upcoming fighting game Street Fighter V. The character is named Necalli and was revealed with a trailer shown during the competitive gaming event Evolution Championship Series, which took place over the weekend.

Necalli's fighting style includes attacks that have him pounding the ground or slashing at enemies, and a V-Trigger move that transforms his appearance dramatically. His V-Trigger turns his long hair a gravity-defying bright red -- check out the video below to see how it works.

Prior to the announcement, the most recently confirmed character to be joining the roster in Street Fighter V was none other than the classic Ken Masters. To see every character who has been confirmed to be playable in the game so far, check out our gallery.

Capcom recently detailed the upcoming Street Fighter V beta, which is set to begin on July 23 at 6 p.m. PT on PlayStation 4. The beta will have a total of six characters to play, but will launch initially with four, with Cammy and Birdie joining later. The company has also confirmed that players will be able to earn all Street Fighter V downloadable content for free by playing the game. Alternatively, players will still have the option to pay to unlock DLC.

Street Fighter V launches in March 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
