Capcom has revealed Zangief at the IgroMir event in Russia, the ‘Red Cyclone’ has muscled his way into Street Fighter V! A popular mainstay within the legendary series and the most prominent wrestler within it, Zangief has made many previous appearances while fighting for “Mother Russia.” Those lucky enough to be at IgroMir will have the opportunity to play a brand new demo build featuring Zangief, along with all of the previously confirmed characters: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Birdie, Charlie Nash, Necalli, R. Mika, Rashid and Karin.

Street Fighter V is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 and PC in March 2016, although an exact date is not yet known.
