Capcom announces new character for Street Fighter IV

I remember a simpler time, back when the console wars were between Nintendo and Sega. There was another rivalry that was almost as great as those of the two consoles. Which fighting game was better, Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter? While it was always a tough call, I always did like Street Fighter just a little bit more. I've been following the development of Street Fighter IV, and yesterday Capcom announced a brand new character for the game.

What could be a more fitting description for a character that's not appeared in any previous titles than "a man without a past"? And what would be a more fitting name than Abel? Well, I'm sure you could think of a few better names, but it's not bad.

The first playable demos of the game will be at the AOU Amusement Expo this weekend. So if you find yourself in Tokyo, you're in for a treat.
