Cody busts outta jail once again — and takes Hagger’s job!
As promised via a series of teases over the weekend, the closing of Street Fighter V top 8 at Combo Breaker 2018 saw the reveal of the official Cody gameplay trailer for Arcade Edition, giving us our first good look at the next Season 3 DLC fighter. In between some live-action atmosphere setting, you can see both familiar and unfamiliar moves from the returning fan-favorite — including how his trademark weapons return in the form of V-Triggers.
Cody comes dressed for success in his new role as Mayor, launching with four alternate outfits — include two “Nostalgia” costumes, the second based on his classic Final Fight origins. While the Battle costume will be included in the Season 3 Character Pass, expect to be “taxed” a bit (for the good of Metro City, certainly) to fight with the premium Nostalgia or Final Fight outfits.
Expect Cody to join the Street Fighter V roster on June 26th!
And: don’t you think Mayor Cody’s live-action incarnation looks a bit familiar…?
A little something I worked on in secrecy. A proud moment to assume the role of my favorite SF fighter! Thanks to @CapcomFighters and all of the kind staff I met on set. You were all great. (Well, I never met the guy on the phone but I’m sure you’re swell) https://t.co/InqpbHWOJR
