UPDATE – The day before his scheduled announcement, Ono has shared one more image of this mysterious Street Fighter V attack. Emirati competitor Big Bird mentioned that a local tournament organizer was told the character these screenshots are teasing is a returning fighter, and not a newcomer, but we have not been able to confirm this ourselves.
Capcom executive Yoshinori Ono is visiting the United Arab Emirates this weekend for Dubai’s annual GAMES convention, and it seems he has some Street Fighter V news in tow.
Over the past few days, Ono has dropped a couple of interesting screenshots that show Ryu getting hit by what appears to be a tornado or some other wind-based attack. This, of course, conjures images of Cody’s Criminal Upper, but it’s not outside the realm of possibility that we’re in store for another newcomer.
GAMES15’s official website notes that Ono will be sharing an “exclusive Street Fighter V treat” during his presentation on the PlayStation stage this Friday, September 11, so stay tuned for more details.
