    Jessica?

  • KazukiNanbu

    Noembelu?

  • Brandonmkii

    Need my masked Cammy.

  • Kaihedgie

    The plot thickens

  • SBKJAZZ

    I have a feeling after Hakan, Capcom can’t really be trusted with Hint #5

    • Arizato

      Also El Fuerte…

      • BigshotCB

        And Rufus…

    • Exkaiser

      But Hakan is so perfect in every way!

  • Chow

    Sakura’s buddy… whatever her name is. She was always in the background, or in her endings.

    • Arizato

      But Hinata was already in Rival Schools.

      • leingod

        I loved Hinata!

        • Arizato

          I do too!

      • Chow

        You made me look her up in a wiki, but I’m talking about
        Kei.

        • Arizato

          Was she in the comics though?

          • Chow

            Definitely.

  • http://thespellcraftcolumn.wordpress.com Rudolph Consuegra

    A doll? That narrows it down to 10 I believe.

  • Kristoffer Brandberg

    So this female character has already made her appearance in the comics? Hmm, that’s an interesting clue.

  • leingod

    My bet was Lucia from Final Fight 3, but now all that went to the crapper. I have no idea who could it be. I haven’t read any SF comics.

  • Andrew A

    Its Decapre.

    • Shane Guidaboni

      This girl? She looks exactly like Cammy. If it is her, then I’m not excited. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/0/77/101062-67131-decapre.jpg

    • Darkbeat

      I hope it’s not Decabre… That would seem a bit lazy and more like something you’d do as a costume for Cammy.
      In fact modders have already done that on PC.

      • Andrew A

        This has only convinced me more.

  • Grape Monet

    My guess is that it’s Ibuki’s friend Sarai.

    • Manny Being Manny

      After looking her up… thats an amazing guess. I’m thinking it might be her too.

    • Armane

      But she’s already appeared in the games, and thus violates rule 3.

      • Manny Being Manny

        Shes appeared as a cameo in endings and story scenes, but never as a fighter. Has it ever been confirmed if “Fighting game debut” means never been in a fighting game in any capacity, or just never as a fighter?

        • Armane

          I guess you’re probably right in that it’s “never as a fighter”.

  • Go2hell66

    Its obviously kens wife

    • TheRequiem95

      Eliza. That’s what I thought from the beginning.

    • Astrotrain

      No, it’s Guile’s daughter.

  • Guest
  • HoldMyMixup

    It’s Noembelu.

    Doll, in the UDON comics, and in the SSF4 OVA.

    • Armane

      If it winds up being a doll I’d say it’s got to be Decapre. The rest of the the dolls (including Noembelu’s) fighting styles, or lack of in some cases, just don’t seem fitting for a SF game. Noembelu for instance uses twin hatchets (unless they want to retcon that):
      http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131127082853/streetfighter/images/b/bd/SFZ3ChibiDollsPage.jpg

    • Atmey

      While I highly doubt she will be from the dolls because they would resemble Cammy’s fighting style too much, I think Noembelu would have a chance because she uses a weapon

  • http://altsune.com/ Ovada Bey

    Santamu.

  • videoman190

    From the Manga or Udon? Also both are non canon!

    • Armane

      I’d imagine they mean “current comics”, so Udon.

  • Tyler Beale

    But….I thought this character had nothing to do with Street Fighter….Well, so much for X meeting Ryu…. *X defeats Ryu and Ken* You got Hadoken! You also got Shoryuken!

    That reminds me – Ryota Niitsuma, X would’ve fit in just fine alongside Zero in MvC3.

  • remapped88

    It’s one of these 2 characters imo:

    1. Lita Luwanda of Delta Red…..nobody expects her at ALL and she fits perfectly as a “out there” choice no one will see coming. She is Delta Red’s weapons expert and with Rolento/Poison now in, why not add a 3rd weapons user? Imo, she fits the checklist above perfectly and would be a great addition to the varied cast.

    2. Decapre of the Shadaloo Dolls….unlike Lita, lots of people thinks it’s her and many wanted her in a SF game for awhile since she’s basically female Vega. Plus it’s Capcom…..it’s easier to change stuff here and there to Cammy’s model than to make a new character model. Plus with Juri and her connection to Cammy and the Shadaloo Dolls, she has a good chance of being the 5th character.

    Other than those 2, I don’t see it being anybody else.

    • Gojira Twit

      You forgot grumpy Kei

      • remapped88

        I know about Kei as well as Eliza, Julia and other female SF side characters but they don’t make sense as the 5th character since none of them are fighters. Gouken has a daughter but Capcom has completely forgotten about her and I doubt she’ll make it in.

        • Gojira Twit

          Grumpy Kei’s sass makes her 10x more formidable than Lita and Decapre fused together at SSJ4 + X-factor

    • Chaos_Knight

      “She is Delta Red’s weapons expert and with Rolento/Poison now in, why not add a 3rd weapons user?”

      So I guess Vega isn’t a weapon user after all this time. L/

      • remapped88

        I was talking about the new Ultra characters only.

  • Chaos_Knight

    I guess it’s not Nilin from Remember Me then. :/

    • Dubsys

      GOOD

      • LustEnvy

        Why not? Nilin was boss.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Ken’s Wife, Eliza Masters

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      You know… she’s pregnant in SFIV, right?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        you know…. pregnant women get Final boss powers, right?

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          O rly?
          Wait… I have a feeling I’ve seen this before… >_>
          Let’s try not to get too far off topic here

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            It might be one of The Dolls huh? Thats kinda..well

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            I was hoping for a less SF-ish character. We still don’t know who it is, but I suppose it’s best not to get your hopes up :V

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            I was hoping for someone from an another Capcom game that would fit in Street fighter lore also. My hopes are gone

        • AndyLC

          “The baby pops out for her Ultra”

          • Surgeon of Death

            This thing is OP

      • CartmanKusanagi

        Eliza gave birth to Mel in Ken’s SSFIV ending, so it could be like 3rd Strike and Alpha 3 in that Ultra takes place after Vanilla/Super

    • MasterScrub

      Do her kick buttons make her kick, or do they make Mel kick instead?

  • Eder García

    “it is a character that isn’t on anyone’s radar”
    that confirms is no Decapre/Masked Cammy

    • Armane

      Keep in mind we’re supposed to think all the dolls (minus Cammy/Juli/Juni) are incapacitated. So it really wouldn’t be that surprising if it was a doll/Decapre, and doesn’t really violate that.

      • Bryon Youngblood

        Yeah, and we saw Julia is out of it after what Juri did to her in the OVA tie-in about Juri leading into Super Street Fighter IV, and we see Juni in Cammy’s ending. I still wonder too though… hmm…

  • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

    I want to still care but with this particular character reveal being one of the most drawn out in recent memory I care very little anymore and will be glad to play as them when they inevitably get announced and move on.

    (Wishes it was like the old days where in SFA3 they threw in the extra characters and you knew about them when the game was released pretty much.)

  • Scipio

    20 bucks says it’s November.

  • BigshotCB

    I just hope it’s not something stupid like a clone of an existing character or some random non-playable cameo character…

  • z_merquise

    Oh well, there goes my chance to see Linn Kurosawa in a fighting game again. And again. And again. And again.

    • Sir Asdfghjkl

      I could see her as an awesome rival to Rolento.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    Well, that kills off my speculation that it’s Regina from Dino Crisis; I’m not familiar with the ST comics, but I doubt she appears in them.

    Whoever this character is, I guess it will be someone who people with only a casual interest in ST aren’t familiar with.

  • MrJechgo

    TL;DR
    REVEAL THE CHARACTER ALREADY CAPCOM!
    Geez… simple, right?
    Where’s Lupinko when you need him,…?

  • hazelnut1112

    It’s going to be wii Fit Trainer.

    • Servant BerserCAR

      7.) She is in the Street Fighter comics. “Another kind” of Street Fighter comics.

  • Kevin Schwarz

    Here goes capcom, letting us down EVEN BEFORE the actual product comes out…

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

    2.) It isn’t Asura or Bad Box Art Mega Man.

    Good, if I never see BBA Megaman again, it will be too soon.

    • Rick

      Bad Box Art Mega Man is best Mega Man.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    how about that chick from final fight 2?
    she could fit right in, like Cody, Guy, Andore and Poison.

    • Brandonmkii

      Maki? She was in SFA3 or CVS 2 or something, so she’s out.

      • Valtiel Ikari

        She was? Damn, there’s goes my guess.
        Maybe I should try and read the comic books and see what I can como up with… or just wait for reveal.
        Maybe a RE character like Rebbecca or Clair? they do take part in the same universe if I remember right (unless that’s not cannon anymore)

  • Ninjagoon

    Ok so this narrows it down to like a few Dolls, Akuma/ Gouken’s mom, and Ibuki’s classmate…Am I forgetting some people? I didnt read the comics and going off of what I know about the comics lol

  • Unlimax

    I’m sure it will be one of the two !
    1 : Rainbow Mika
    2 : Karin
    Or possibly … Pullum ?

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      “Ultra Street Fighter IV will mark this character’s fighting game debut.”

    • Kaihedgie

      Why must I keep hearing about Karin?

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Well she is pretty damn cute as Street Fighter characters are concerned.

        • Kaihedgie

          And? x:

        • Setsu Oh

          as all characters are concerned

  • Herok♞

    Are there any non street fighter capcom characters that appear in the comics in anyway shape or form.? Like as a mention or a background character. Since its claiming they will be a perfect fit for the SF unverse it would be silly if they were already in fact an character from said universe. Then again I could be reading to deeply into these hints since they say its off everyones radar.

    • Armane

      Pretty sure the only non-Final Fight/Street Fighter character from an existing universe that have been shown were all Rival Schools characters. But they would all violate rule 3.

      • Herok♞

        Interesting

  • AndyLC

    Just to remind y’all, Karin first appeared in the Street Fighter manga drawn/written by Masahiko Nakahira, THEN got added to Street Fighter Alpha 3. Nakahira’s covered SFAlpha and SF3 with his manga.

    Maybe it’s another of his original characters?

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      It’s not Karin…

      • AndyLC

        “Maybe it’s ANOTHERof his original characters?”

  • 27sanderrm .

    I think it’s Luwanda from Cammy’s group Delta Red.

  • 27sanderrm .

    I’m guessing it is Luwanda from Cammy’s team Delta Red.

  • shadowmonstasensei

    hinata from rival schools…callin it right now. XD

    • Mr_SP

      Rival schools is a fighting game. So, no.

  • Suzaku

    Makes sense. Udon designed the alt costumes for the four other new characters, so I’m not surprised that they’re influencing this addition. Decapo, probably, or maybe one of the other Dolls.

  • Kaitsu

    Watch it be a character that cameo’d in the background of the Street Fighter comics. That would be the ultimate twist.

  • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

    It’s gonna be Sakura’s Best Friend in school. I keep forgetting her name, though.

  • Troy Dalton

    Please be Po Lin, please be Po Lin, please be Po Lin! Doll, Sarai or Lita = no buy. Wildcards will be considered.

  • William Carpenter

    There’s a manga in which Sagat adopts an orphan boy and girl. Could be the girl. No one would see that coming.

  • Gado Tsuki

    It’s probably a stretch, but how Keiko Yanase from Street Fighter Gaiden? At the time of the comic/manga she is a high caliber judo practitioner. She also knows E. Honda personally. Coupled with Able’s concept art, a young girl with blonde hair who does judo, it could have some merit.

    http://streetfighter.wikia.com/wiki/File:Abel_girl.jpg

    Otherwise Lita could be a solid choice. I highly doubt Capcom could make the appearance of any of the dolls original enough, especially a masked cammy. If they were to do that they might as well stick in Karen.
