Zangief joins the Street Fighter V party

We've seen some pretty good reveals for Street Fighter V, including older and new characters alike. But now, a powerhouse is making his way back – and he's going to spinning piledrive everything.

Capcom confirmed that Zangief, the monstrous Russian bear wrestler, will make his return in Street Fighter V, bringing plenty of his traditional moves, including the spinning pile driver and other throws. In addition, he'll have some new V-Skills to his credit, including an Iron Muscle that prevents him from taking damage, and a Cyclone Lariat that hurts everything in his path – though how his head stays straight during this is beyond us.

Check out the trailer below and prepare for Zangief madness when Street Fighter V arrives early next year for PlayStation 4 and PC.
