Ken Returns to Street Fighter V

The Street Fighter Panel at San Diego Comic Con today revealed that Ken is returning to the next Street Fighter.

Ken returns in Street Fighter V with a new stylish hair do. Ken’s V-Skill is Quick Step allowing him to close the gap between an enemy.


Ken can also choose to step kick or input another attack closer to the end of his run!

Ken’s V-Trigger is Heat Rush.

Ken channels flames through his entire body for a short period of time, which powers up his special attacks by increasing their number of hits and improving their trajectory, allowing him to perform even more damaging combos.

Also, just a quick reminder that the first online beta program for Street Fighter V will be PS4 exclusive and begins on July 23rd at 6:00 PM Pacific, running for 5 days. In North America, fans who pre-order the game through select retailers or PSN will be granted automatic access to the beta. In Europe and Asia, anyone who would like to take part in the beta should head over to and sign up for a chance to join the fight!

While the Spring 2016 release date is still a ways away, stay tuned as we’ll be making more Street Fighter V announcements very soon. Maybe as soon as… next week? J Be sure to tune into Twitch next weekend (July 17th~19th) as we hit the road for the biggest fighting game tournament in the world, EVO 2015!
