For the second season of Street Fighter 5 DLC, the roster has gotten deeper in number count and character variety. Nevertheless, if slow grapplers are your thing, ol' Abi appears to have an interesting move-set - we quite like his juggling attacks.

Releasing for season pass holders on July 25 alongside the Metro City Bar arena, Abigail will be the fourth of six planned DLC characters for Street Fighter 5 Season 2, and as you can see in the trailer below, he's just huge. The former can be purchased for $9.99 or as part of the $25 Capcom Pro Tour 2017 Premier Pass, which also includes access to the Capcom Cup 2017 and Capcom Pro Tour 2017, a monthly challenge to acquire in-game money, formal outfits for Ryu and Ken, and a Guile costume designed by Capcom Cup victor Du "NuckleDu" Dang.

Capcom was expected to make the next "Street Fighter 5" character reveal at the EVO 2017 Championship Series, but the studio's panel there was canceled. Abigail served as one of the bosses of the later stages, but here he is in Street Fighter V, literally towering over the competition. On top of that, players will also be getting a few more retro costumes and the Sazaku Castle stage. A leaked list of the rest of SF5's Season 2 characters hit the web and it alluded to a Final Fight star being the next playable character.
