If I had to guess where this leaked from... they said they were taking down the PC servers today for maintenance to prepare for the upcoming beta (where Ed will be playable) so there is probably some shit sitting on a CDN right about now.
 
I really don't like the design :/ And I have no clue how the ed in the campaign can change into this design. Unless it's a stand or something. it's bizarre.
 
It's been said that the psycho power in him is causing him to age rapidly. It was pointed out in the story modes.
What's the point of introducing characters in the story mode and use them for new characters later down the road if you redesign them entirely. Yes, you can make the 'he aged up' but even then. I feel like this might as well be an entirely different character here (the boxing gloves alone).

In the story mode Ed had something going on with his hand:


which could have been a cool part of his moveset.

Bleh

It still could be? The teaser picture has Balrog floating in the air. We literally know nothing about his moveset.

The teaser image Capcom posted on Twitter showed Balrog being levitated by some kind of Psycho Power.

Ed has psycho power.

It's pretty obvious that he's gonna use that in his moveset but what archetype he falls into still remains to be seen.
 
I don't know why anyone's complaining about blandness. SF, with the exception of 3rd Strike, has mostly been bland outside of particular power-sets. They're usually pretty innocuous looking stereotypes with some slight anime flair.
 
LMAO just looked at the picture. Just give me slim shady back. It's like they took Ken's Body and put a Nazi hat on him.

Character design in this franchise has finally reached full KOF status.

*Edit: Not a good thing, in my eyes*
Kof and Tekken have some of the best looking and most stylish/fashionable characters in FGs.

Stereotype fighter aping KOF is nothing but an upgrade
