Street Fighter V reveals Necalli

At this year's EVO Capcom revealed Necalli, an al-new character for Street Fighter V. Moreover all post-launch characters will be unlockable for free by playing the game. The title will launch with a core roster of 16 fighters.


Brand New SFV Character and Gameplay Details Revealed at EVO 2015!

Announced at EVO 2015 in Las Vegas, Capcom confirmed the first brand new fighter to join the Street Fighter V roster - the mysterious Necalli!

Capcom also confirmed the details of the content plan for Street Fighter V. The initial game purchase will be the only disc or full game download you will ever need to own. For the first time ever, all post-launch gameplay related content will be earnable via gameplay, totally free of charge. Players will also have the option to purchase the content as soon as it's available if they wish to do so. Any balance and system adjustments will be available for free also. Releasing in Spring 2016, the title will launch with a core roster of 16 characters, including 4 brand new fighters to the Street Fighter universe. Capcom will continually add additional characters, making this the first iteration in the franchise where it's possible for dedicated players to continue to expand on their gameplay experience without the need to purchase further titles in the series.

Necalli means "Battle" in Aztec (Nahuatl).
Necali with only 1 L means "untempered" in Romenian.

So one can think of Necalli as the Street Fighter version of Kratos, god of war. Only with more hair, a lot more. XD

Thanks for the awesome trailer, Capcom and Gamersyde!

I hope they reveal Juri as one of 12 initial returning characters.

I think Tarzan with turd-dreads is copyrighted by disney.

Surely he has to be the boss of the game with that incredible design? Wow.

Eagle hasn't been in a SF game since 1987 (SF1), so unless you played the GBA version of SFA3 it would be a reunion long time coming :D

I predict they will bring Alex, Eagle, Karin and/or Maki as returning characters into the rooster of 16 launch-lineup

I'd be shocked if she doesn't make it back eventually.. but I'm kinda doubting in the first 16.

How many more blonde characters do we need in SF5?

We already have: Ken, Cammy, Charlie, Birdie
And being rumored are: R.Mika, Karin, Guile

But Necalli wasn't in any of the "leaks", so it is now entirely possible that they were just BS.

That and capcom/SNK he's a bit more obscure, but i've always liked him. His style felt unique.

He was also in the PSP version of Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX.

Damn that new char looks awesome. Capcom is really good making interesting characters. I like him even though probably not going to main him. Waiting Urien/Gill/Seth.
Commented on 2015-07-21 13:34:47
Very nice indeed. He does remind me a lot of Gill though, the final boss in 3rd Strike and has also some moves quite similar to Blanka's
