Rashid was announced at Games15 over in Dubai. Here's his trailer.



And here's Rashid's moveset (thanks CountBlackule for finding this).


Hants also gave more info on Rashid over at Capcom-Unity.
Hey everyone, I’d like to introduce the second all-new character to Street Fighter V: Rashid!

This character was announced by Ono-san at the Games 15 event in Dubai, and we have all of the details to share with you now.

Hailing from the Middle East, Rashid is a fun, easy going individual who has an affinity for technology. Although his fighting style is casual, it’s anything but laid back! Using the power of wind, Rashid is definitely one of the more difficult characters to catch.

V-Skill 1 (MP+MK) – Front Flip

Rashid performs a high flying flip over the opponent. Pressing kick during the Front Flip results in Rashid performing a divekick.

V-Skill 2 (Down+MP+MK) – Rolling Assault

Rashid closes the gap between himself and the opponent with a quick front roll. Pressing kick during Rolling Assault results in Rashid kicking upward at the opponent.

V-Trigger (HP+HK) – Ysaar

Rashid throws out a slow moving whirlwind that closes in on the opponent and causes damage to them if they touch it. While the whirlwind is out, Rashid can use it to increase his movement on any attack that propels him forward.

















In case all of that wasn't enough, here's some gameplay.

So the leaks were mostly on point then.

Wake me up when they confirm Urien and Alex.

New character, name was part of the biggest rumor (so it kind of confirms it)

The three rumored new character names were Rashid, Zen, and Laura

Looks cool, but that periscope stream left a lot to be desired :D looking forward to a hq trailer.

This confirms Ken Bogard's rumor (so Zen & Laura are coming). This doesn't confirm the Siliconera leak (the one with Karin, Alex, & Urien), though it does have some bearing since it leaked Rainbow Mika.

FYI both Rachid and Rashid are correct, Ken Bogard being French though wrote the name with a c :3

Come on Laura and Zen!

Well, looks like Ken Bogard was fucking wrong. He spelled it Rachid. Can we all stop quoting his leaked roster now and acting like it's truth?

Just saw the video, Goenitz in SF!

This confirms Ken Bogard's rumor (so Zen & Laura are coming). This doesn't confirm the Siliconera leak (the one with Karin, Alex, & Urien), though it does have some bearing since it leaked Rainbow Mika.

Oh, I thought it was all the same leak. Cautiously optimistic for Alex & Urien then.

Finally. We have had a lack of Middle Eastern characters in games for too long.

Most of us pointed out his misspelling of the name Rashid (myself included). It was due to the French translation. If anything, this confirms everything that he's been saying. So now we have Zen, Laura, & a robust story mode to look forward to.

Ah, he looks pretty cool! Need some better pics but I'm digging his design so far. Love the wind based attacks too.

I was honestly doubting Ken seeing as he never named Necalli directly, but here's the proof. Oh me of little faith.

Is Rashid wearing an eyepatch? Super sick if he is. Adds a little visual flair so he's not just "middle eastern dude" like Shaheen.
