Abigail is, of course, one of the big bruisers of Final Fight, and will bring every inch of his eight-foot muscular structure to Street Fighter, making him the biggest character in the game.
If you can’t tell by his look, Abigail is a gear head, and his story sees him searching Metro City in search of his prized monster truck. His search is predictably violent as he brawls his way through Metro City.
Abigail will be sporting his classic look, with tyres around his enormous biceps, and that odd Canadian Leaf flat-top haircut. He’ll have a couple other looks available, too, those being Story and Premium Battle cosumes – pictured below.
Abigail will also be arriving with his very own stage called Metro City Bay Area. “Fight on this stage long enough and you might see the iconic sunrise that fans will remember from back in Abigail’sFinal Fightdays,” Capcom says.
As to his moves, being a big guy, Abigail has two command grabs, the most notable one being his Nitro Charge run: “This special move has one hit of armour (two for EX!) and can be cancelled into four follow-ups – a stiff punch, command grab, cumbersome overhead, or V-Skill.”
Abigail’s V-Skill is Hungabee, in which hethrusts his belly forwards – high or low – to counter an opponent’s attack and set himself up for a combo opportunity.
His V-Trigger is Max Power, which sees him charging up four different heavy punches for one hit of armous and extended juggles. A full charge will break the opponent’s guard.
His Critical Art is the Abigail Special, which is a particularly nasty slam with a downward open-palm strike that puts his opponent in a daze. From there, he hoists them into the air, pummels them as if they were a speedbag, and then launches a savage hook that shatters the screen.
