Street Fighter 5’s Urien arrives this month

Meet the vice president of the Illuminati

Street Fighter 5’s latest trailer shows off Urien, who will be released as part of the September update to the game, developer Capcom announced today.

Urien is the sixth and final downloadable fighter in Capcom’s first "season" of post-launch add-ons for Street Fighter 5. The character, who is a member of the Illuminati, debuted in 1997’s Street Fighter 3: 2nd Impact. Here’s some more information on Urien from Capcom:

Urien is the Vice President of Illuminati and wants nothing but to take over Illuminati from his older brother, Gill, and destroy Shadaloo. Urien has complete confidence in his own physicality and this elitism shows itself through his sadistic and tyrannical tendencies. He gains joy only from dominating others and having them crumble in the face of his incredible power.

In Street Fighter 5, Urien wears a pinstriped gray suit rather than his old costume, a loincloth. His V-Skill, Metallic Aura, gives him a forward charge that he can use to absorb one attack. With his V-Trigger, Aegis Reflector, he creates a purple energy barrier (two with a full V-meter) that can reflect projectiles and damage his opponent. And in his Critical Art, known as Dominate Crush, he charges up his arm and slams it downward.

Capcom will announce a concrete release date for Urien and Street Fighter 5’s September update during the Tokyo Game Show next week.
