CAPCOM revealed on Monday that it will add Ed as a playable character for its Street Fighter V fighting game. An official release date was not announced, but he will be available for beta testing on the Capcom Fighters Network from May 11 to May 14. CAPCOM is streaming a trailer previewing the character in action and his other costumes.
Ed first appeared as a non-playable character in Street Fighter IV. This will be his debut as a playable character.
Capcom released the game's free "A Shadow Falls" story expansion DLC last July.
Street Fighter V is the latest entry in the Street Fighter fighting game franchise. The game contains new features, such as V-Reversal moves, and a special V-Trigger mode. The game shipped in February 2016 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam).
The game launched with a core of 16 playable characters, including: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Nash, M. Bison, Cammy, Birdie, Vega, Karin Kanzuki, Necalli, Rainbow Mika, Zangief, Laura, Rashid, Dhalsim, and F.A.N.G.
