If you’ve been keeping up with Street Fighter V news this week, you’ve certainly seen Yoshinori Ono’s collection of teaser screenshots for the newest addition to the game’s roster. Since the screens went live, we’ve all been trying to determine if those tornadoes belong to a certain Final Fight vet. We can now officially lay that question to rest: they don’t.

Just a short while ago, the Blanka-toting Capcom rep revealed that Rashid, an entirely new character, will be joining the cast. While we don’t have much official information at this time, we can confirm–as you can see for yourself in the trailer below–that Rashid fancies turning the wind against his foes. Exactly how this wind can be applied in combat stands to be seen.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Some brief clips of Rashid’s gameplay just surfaced, so you can get an early look at that while we wait on more information from official sources.
