The final character announcement for Street Fighter V was made at the PlayStation Experience and here are the details.

During the reveal, an all-new character named F.A.N.G. was introduced as the newest fighter of the game, claiming himself as the second-in-command of Shadaloo. He has a unique fighting style, where he can poison enemies which depletes the opponent?s life bar until the poison wears out or if F.A.N.G. gets hit. He has a ton of tricky attacks from, long range to poison attacks and even slippery moves that will frustrate any players. F.A.N.G. has a V-skill called Nishodoku where he fires a slow moving projectile that can damage opponents over time when hits, and his V-Trigger called Dokunomu where he will emits poison gas around his body and opponents will take damage if made contact. If F.A.N.G. is played by a veteran, he can be one unstoppable force. With the announcement of F.A.N.G., this now completes the 16 character roster of Street Fighter V.
