Sagat brings his classic gameplay back, with some new twists.
Capcom Community and Esports Manager Matt “The Street Writer” Edwards is back to prepare us for the arrival of two new characters in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition — today both Sagat and G are being added to the roster, completing the selection of Season 3 DLC fighters! So naturally Capcom is giving us a chance to learn a bit more about them before they drop tonight.
Edwards starts with a brief recap of the Solitary King’s place in Street Fighter lore, then proceeds to show us some footage of how Sagat’s V-Skill and V-Triggers work, including showcasing some combos and juggles. He describes how Sagat’s ability to kara-cancel his kick attacks opens up new opportunities to combo into the iconic Tiger Uppercut (among other things!), and breaks down Sagat’s general gameplan for those considering trying out the King of Muay Thai: zoning and severe punishment of your opponent’s errors.
Give Sagat a try once the Street Fighter V servers are back up and running later today!
