Capcom has announced that Ed will be joining the Street Fighter 6 roster later this month as the latest DLC challenger, following the addition of Rashid and A.K.I.'s release last year. While we already knew that Ed was due in February, we now have a specific date and a new trailer.
A Psycho-powered boxer, Ed will be available across World Tour, Fighting Ground, and Battle Hub, and arrives alongside a new ‘Ruined Lab’ stage - a setting that shows the fall of Shadaloo, as its laboratory falls to pieces. Year 1 Ultimate Pass and Ultimate Edition owners will automatically receive the new stage upon Ed's release.
Ed's moves include a fast Psycho Flicker jab that can be deployed in three different directions, a flurry of punches with his Psycho Blitz, while his Level 1 Psycho Storm Super Art unleashes high-speed jabs. His Level 2 Super Art returns from SF V, generating a ball of forward-moving psycho power; and his Level 3 Super Art ties enemies hands and feet together, making them into a punching bag.
Ed will be coming to Street Fighter 6 via the Year 1 Character Pass from 27th February, alongside his Street Fighter V-style Outfit 2, and new stage. The 'Ed Arrives!' Fighting Pass is also available now for a limited time. Final Year 1 Character Pass challenger, Akuma, is also due to land this spring.
