  • Pheria

    Character Animation

    * Poison now has “jiggle” for both male and female parts.

  • thaKingRocka

    Delayed standing will really mess with my head.

  • Vash bane

    after a few searches I think (if I remember the hints right) the new character might be one of these ladies.

    Po-Lin (her name is on the wiki page I saw..personally I have no idea who she is)

    and i’m not 100% on this but if Fighting Jam is not counted as a street fighter game (spin off) then I guess Ingrid might also be one of the candidates.
    Celia (i’m also not 100% about her, seeing as I don’t read the comic/manga)
    … or more of the dols lol

    iono XD

    • XiaomuArisu

      They said that the character was never in a fighting game and that she is from the comics

      • Vash bane

        hm guess i don’t remember then lol i was thinking non main series SF titles (i guess Ingrid is out) po-lin is ambigious to me seeing as there was not even a pic of her there.

        so i guess just those two ladies (for now)
