Balrog Redesign for Street Fighter V Announced

One of the most anticipated aspects of the upcoming Street Fighter V is the announced first batch of DLC characters which includes Guile, Alex, Balrog, Juri, Ibuki and Urien. In a recent interview with 4Gamer, Koichi Sugiyama and Woshige of Capcom revealed that they plan on a redesign for Balrog (M. Bison in Japan). There was no detail in regards to whether this will be visually, in gameplay, or both, but given how many recurring characters in V have been redesigned both visually and in play-style, it’s safe to assume both.

No word when the DLC characters release, but the game’s producer announced that the characters will be released one at a time and expected every two months. Street Fighter V is expected to release in February of 2016.
