Street Fighter 5's next DLC character is Abigail from Final Fight

Street Fighter 5's next DLC character is Abigail from Final Fight

Abigail, due out on 25th July, is the fourth DLC character from Street Fighter 5's second season, and follows the release of Akuma, Kolin and Ed. Event Hubs believes that the stage appears to be themed around "Final Fight".

Polygon reported that in addition to Abigail, another Mad Gear gang member, Hugo, marked his debut in the "Street Fighter" series with "Street Fighter 3: Second Impact".

Fighting game tournament Evo is now being held in Las Vegas, at which competitors are beating each other up in Street Fighter V all weekend. Event Hubs also mentioned a character page on the official CFN website with a browser tab that reads "ABIGAIL|CHARACTER DATA".

While Abigail was originally a boss character in the Final Fight series, he's purely protagonistic in this latest release, letting players of all types play with him offline and on, looking to deliver a masterful KO no matter where you take him. It's called Metro City Bay Area, and shows Abigail's Scrap Metal yard in the background.

A lot of people were hoping that the new DLC will bring back some of the iconic Street Fighter characters but instead, Capcom chose to give them a new character that many claims feel bland and unimaginative.

So, what do we know about Abigail as he appears in Street Fighter 5?

Despite this, they still promised on the official Twitter account for "Street Fighter" that the next DLC character will be revealed during the EVO 2017 "Street Fighter 5" top 8, which begins at tonight, Sunday, at 10 p.m. EDT.
