Capcom has revealed its final Street Fighter V Season 2 DLC character at the 2017 South East Asia Major tournament this weekend past weekend. Zeku, the “ever-changing ninja” has returned.
Originally introduced in Street Fighter Alpha 2, Zeku was once Guy’s teacher who taught him the ways of Bushinryu, a style of ninjutsu. Guy eventually went onto succeed him as the 39th master of Bushinryu, and Zeku mysteriously disappeared shortly after this. Now, Zeku has returned to create his own sect of ninjas and forge a new fighting style.
Zeku appears to be a close-quarters fighter with many kicks, jabs, and stomps. He also has the ability to switch between two forms: his older, blonde self, and one that appears to have a striking resemblance to Strider Hiryu, another classic Capcom character. Both forms of his character will have three costumes as well.
Zeku will be available separately or with the Season 2 pass alongside previously released characters Akuma, Kolin, Ed, Abigail, and Menat on October 24.
