Capcom has unveiled the final Street Fighter 5 season 2 DLC character at the 2017 South East Asia Major tournament. Zeku the “ever-changing ninja” is back and will now be available as a playable character in Street Fighter 5. Those who have played Street Fighter Alpha 2 will remember this particular character, Zeku used to be Guy’s teacher who taught him Bushinryu, a style of ninjutsu.
Guy ended up succeeding Zeku as the 39th master of Bushinryu and Zeku wasn’t heard from since. He disappeared shortly after that happened. Zeku has returned in Street Fighter 5. He’s looking to start his own ninja group with new fighters. Zeku also wants to find a new fighting style.
Capcom has posted the character reveal trailer for Zeku on YouTube. Zeku seems to have a close-quarters fighting style as well as the ability to switch between his old and his new self. Both forms will have three different costumes.
Characters that have previously been released in Season 2 include Akuma, Kolin, Ed, Abigail, and Menat. Street Fighter 5 players can purchase Zeku separately for $6. It’s included in the season pass for those who have already picked one up for $30. Zeku will be available for purchase on October 24th.
Capcom is yet to confirm when it’s going to release the third season of DLC for Street Fighter 5.
