It’s been a long time coming, but the infamous Gouken, better known as Sheng Long, has finally made his debut in Street Fighter 4. Now we’ve got the video of the venerable Shotokan master in action.

Looks like Gouken has multi-directional hadoukens, a killer shoyruken combo and a host of other moves that should bring pain to his opponents. Nothing we wouldn’t expect from the master of Ken and Ryu. The guy’s younger brother is Akuma, one of the strongest Street Fighter characters ever, after all.

When you’re done watching Abel and Gouken go at it, be sure to hit the jump and watch the trailer for the forthcoming anime starring Chun-Li.

Read more.  Author’s commentary:  Gouken doesn’t seem so tough.  His techniques are fancy but he appears slow.  Hell seems to be the same speed as Abel, the new grappler, and grapplers are typically not fast in 2D fighting games.
