G And Sagat Are Now Available In STREET FIGHTER V

Capcom just released the two previously announced DLC characters, G, and Sagat, in Street Fighter 5 yesterday. 

G is a new character who is nicknamed the Man of Mystery and proclaims himself as President of the World. In his official blurb in the Capcom Unity blog, G is described as “a mysterious new character who wishes to unify the world as its president. He decides to spread his message in ways the modern world can understand: through social media. 

Regarding his special moves in the game, G will utilize his role as President of the World, and in a fight, players will see a meter measuring his Presidentiality level next to the V-Gauge. An icon representing the Earth represents this meter. G uses the G charge to absorb power from the Earth and boost his Presidentiality level to 3. When his Presidentiality is higher, the more powerful his moves will become. 

Sagat, on the other hand, is not a newcomer in the Street Fighter franchise. His latest iteration is more powerful than ever as he can control space with Tiger Shots. Moreover, his iconic move is somewhat similar to his past incarnations in the series. The Tiger Shot can be used as a projectile that changes speeds depending on the button pressed. Meanwhile, the Grand Tiger Shot can hit crouching opponents but will yield less damage. 

Both DLC characters can be purchased individually for $6 each, or 100,000 Fight Money. G and Sagat are also included in the Season 3 Character Pass for $30, which will also include characters such as Sakura, Blanka, Falke, and Cody.
