G and Sagat trailers released for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, both available on 8/6/18

It takes a lot of audacity to call yourself the “President of the World” — and that’s exactly how the newest character in the Street Fighter franchise thinks of himself. Considering some of the dizzying options on display in his new trailer revealed at Evo 2018, perhaps there’s a chance he will run things in the tournament world of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

But why be president… when you’re already the king?

G wasn’t the only reveal tonight at Evo 2018 — Sagat, one of gaming’s original projectile-crazed zoners, is back. There may have been a consensus in the past that fireballs had a weakness in SFV compared to older games, but Sagat’s uniquely fast recovery — check out the three fireball combo in the trailer! — threatens to change that perception.

At the time of this writing, all we have to go on is the trailers above. That changes tomorrow, though: both G and Sagat can be in your hands on all platforms on 8/6/18. Whether you want to be president or king, your chance for power begins tomorrow!
