Continuing to add to its character roster, Capcom‘s Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition recently welcomed veteran Sagat and a new mysterious character named G.

According to the character profile for the new fighter: “G is a mysterious new character who wishes to unify the world as its president. He decides to spread his message in the ways the modern world can understand: Through social media.” Undeniably based on the look of 16th US President, Abraham Lincoln, G is sure to become a character remembered for his taunts and outrageous backstory. The characters are now available for $5.99 USD each, but free to download for those who own the game’s $29.99 USD Season 3 pass.

Learn more about G in the character introduction video below, followed by some of the presidential fighter’s moves in the gameplay trailer.

For more gaming news, SEGA recently released a story trailer for the Shenmue I & II re-release.
