    I think he genuinely looks awful. His hair looks like play-doh, has too much fur -some of it with the same exact color as his skin- and his face looks like a cheap mask from a B-horror movie.

    Cancer: The character

    Though maybe he won’t be the online faceroll brain-dead Blanka from IV.

    As someone that doesn’t really play fighting games, I think I speak for most non fighting game fans when I say: he wasn’t in it already?

    Wait a minute…he wasn’t in the game from the start? But he is like one of the main characters of the series, what on Earth is Capcom doing with SF5?.

    soo…. you mean he basically looks like every other character in this roster?

    Blanka can talk? That’s a first.

    SFV’s art style is hit and miss for me. Some of the female characters look great, but in the case of Blanka in particular, he lost a bit of his colorful/cartoonish look, and just seems made of rubber.

    he could talk in SF4. If I’m not mistaken, he could also talk in the Alpha games and comics (Basically, him speaking is nothing new)
