Get psycho with M Bison in Street Fighter V

2 min read


But why? Why do they still call me a warlord? And mad? All I want to do is to create the perfect genetic soldier. Not for power, not for evil, but for good. Sandy and Martha shall be the first of many who shall march out of my laboratory and crush every adversary, every creed, every nation! Until the world is in the loving grip of the Pax Bisonica. And peace will reign and all humanity shall bow to me in humble gratitude. And then we’ll all play Street Fighter V. I call dibs on M Bison!

Fittingly revealed on a…Tuesday, Street Fighter V is about to get psycho with one of its signature characters. Here’s the Shadaloo boss, in all his glory as Charlie Nash was clearly expecting to fight a madman and instead found himself going toe to toe….with a gawd. IGN has the video:

It looks like some trademark Bison power in the video above. The madman has all his regular moves that dish out tons of damage with attacks such as Psycho crusher and that blasted teleport, as well as a few new tricks up his sleeve. Psycho projectile power? Damn Bison, you done got an upgrade. Bison also appears to open up players for massive juggle opportunities, to inflict even more ridiculous and damaging combos.

Visually, Bison has changed. He’s changed man. He’s clearly gotten older, and he’s swapped the trademark cape for a cool new trenchcoat. Which all lends credence to the theory that Street Fighter V takes place after the events of Street Fighter III. It’s a horribly confusing timeline, yo. The game is out….eventually. When it comes to Street Fighter games, I’m already readying myself for any potential delays. Because balancing takes time.

Still, this bit of footage has made me a happy man. Next, it’ll make me a dead man if I have to fight Geoff.
