We all knew that Alex was coming out this month, but we only seen one piece of concept art.
Today, Capcom have detailed Alex and his moves, as well as what other content will be inside the patch. First, an introduction for Alex from Capcom’s Haunts.
Alex has been one of the most fan requested characters for Street Fighter V and we’ve put in a lot of work to make him appeal to old school and new players alike. Having made his first appearance in Street Fighter III back in 1997, Alex is a brash grappler whose bold attitude tends to get him in trouble. His parents died while he was still young, so he was raised by his father’s friend, Tom, who taught him everything he knows about fighting.
In Street Fighter V, Alex returns as a powerful grappler that can inflict big damage with his close range Power Bomb command grab and his long limbs to fight from midrange distances. The threat doesn’t end there however, as Alex has a variety of special attacks that can cover a large portion of the screen for those times when the opponent keeps him out. Players looking for a methodical grappler who can do big burst damage up close, yet still do well at midrange, will find themselves perfectly at home with Alex.
Alex V abilities:
Alex stretches and gets ready to hit extra hard. After doing this, Alex’s next move will damage the opponent as if it were a counter hit. If the attack misses or gets blocked, the effect vanishes.
V-Trigger: Rage Shift
Alex lets loose with a clothesline attack. The attack can be charged, and allows parrying of one attack during its charge time. If fully charged, Alex will break the guard of a blocking opponent, allowing for a followup attack.
Critical Art: Heavy Hammer
Alex hits the opponent with a very powerful chop that knocks them around. He then grabs them and holds them up high in a crucifix hold, and then drops them down to the ground with intense speed.
