Everyone’s favorite Metro City rascal Cody was announced for Street Fighter V along with everyone else from season 3, but this new gameplay trailer (with a hint of story) gives Cody some time to shine.
The trailer begins with a live action clip of Cody, played by New Japan Pro Wrestling star and Street Fighter IV Cody main Kenny Omega, entering the mayor’s office and receiving a phone call. From there, the trailer begins showing off Cody’s two V.skills – his trusty knife and what we can now say is a traditional Metro City mayoral pipe – and a new costume of traditional mayoral pants. Check out the trailer below.

In addition, Capcom has announced three other DLC costumes for Cody. He can wear his prison garb from the Alpha series and Street Fighter IV, a white tuxedo, or his Final Fight outfit of an understated white t-shirt and jeans. Omega is also voice acting the character in the game.
Cody will be avalable on June 26 and will be followed by DLC characters G and Sagat later in the season. Street Fighter V is available on PlayStation 4 and PC.
Canonically, Cody without his handcuffs is supposed to be one of the strongest humans alive on a tier of Oro and stronger than Akuma. I wonder if he’s gotten weaker in his older age.
