Street Fighter V Cody Travers Trailer Reveals The Final Fight Hero (VIDEO)
Crossovers in fighting games have been fairly common throughout the genre’s history. Inclusions of characters from other franchises allow for publishers to entice new players into the game, as well as promote other games in their library without disrupting either franchise’s canon. Injustice 2 has been leaning heavily into this with the addition of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Hellboy and now Capcom is doing the same with their iconic fighting game. The new Street Fighter V Cody Travers trailer has been revealed, which confirms that the Final Fight brawler is coming to the game as a playable character.
Capcom premiered the Street Fighter V Cody Travers trailer, seen above, at the recent Combo Breaker fighting game tournament event this past weekend. The trailer begins with a live-action segment featuring professional wrestler Kenny Omega as Cody, still serving as the Metro City mayor after Mike Haggar, entering his office and answering the phone. The voice on the phone is none other than New Day wrestler Xavier Woods, notifying him of the Street Fighter 30th anniversary. The trailer then shows footage of Cody in action in Street Fighter V.
Cody primarily uses a street brawler fighting style much like in the Final Fight games, but he can also use a knife or a pipe as weapon attacks. The trailer mainly shows Cody in his mayoral outfit, but confirms that he will have several other skins, including ones that put him back in his classic inmate clothes and an outfit much like Mike Haggar’s. Season 3 DLC pass owners will be able to add Cody to their roster on June 26th.
