Abigail Joins Street Fighter V Later This Month

July 16, 2017Written by Tyler Treese


A former Final Fight boss is making their way to Street Fighter V later this month. On July 25, the hulking gang member Abigail will be unleashed in Capcom’s marquee fighting game. Despite being one of Final Fight‘s most iconic boss characters, this will mark Abigail’s first appearance in a Street Fighter title. This news was unveiled during the Street Fighter V finals of Evo 2017, the world’s premier fighting game tournament.

Check out the Street Fighter V Abigail gameplay trailer below, which also shows the Metro City Bay Area stage that’ll be added on July 25:

This has been a busy week for Street Fighter V announcements, as the 2017 Capcom Pro Tour stage was previously unveiled, and it was announced that the legendary Suzaku Castle stage would be making its return on July 25.  Even if there aren’t any additional announcements tonight, it’s clear that players will be kept busy later this month as Capcom is still clearly committed to building SFV as a platform.

Abigail will join the roster of Street Fighter V on July 25. He can either be purchased with in-game fight money, or bought as part of the game’s second season character pass. The latter will cost players $29.99, and comes with the other DLC characters for season two.

Are you looking forward to checking out Abigail after they become available as a playable character, or have you given up on playing Street Fighter V after a rocky first season. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
