If you guessed the fifth Ultra Street Fighter IV character was Decapre give yourself a high claw! Decapre was first seen in Street Fighter Alpha 3 where she was revealed to be one of M. Bison’s Dolls. Decapre was also seen in the Street Fighter comics and is playable for the first time in Ultra Street Fighter IV. Decapre fights with scramble moves and attacks infused with psycho power.

 

Ultra Street Fighter IV also adds Elena, Hugo, Rolento, and Poison who were last seen in Street Fighter X Tekken.

 

Capcom has Ultra Street Fighter IV slated for release in June 2014. If you have Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition you can upgrade to Ultra for $14.99. Retail copies of Ultra Street Fighter IV will go on sale in August for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for $39.99.

 

Update: Here’s a trailer showing what kind of damage Decapre can do to Cammy.

    Wow..

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Will Ultra SFIV be on PS4?

    • Jason Ryer

      I doubt it they seem to have issues with publishing costs for next gen atm.

      • Eder García

        Sony can fund the port also don’t forget Seth Killian is in Sony so… anything can happen

  • DaiRaiOh

    Good. I was hoping it would be one of them. I always did like that squad

  • xe7en

    Capcom hyped this shit up for real though. “We’ll be announcing a new character that hasn’t appeared before in sf”. On reveal “We give you… Cammy clone!”

    • Setsu Oh

      i really hope the mask is hiding hideous scars because if she IS a cammy clone…FUCK

  • Yoh Asakura

    That was a really sour reveal……

  • leingod

    That’s… very dissapointing. It wouldn’t bother me if they hadn’t HYPED her so much, but really, it just looks like an alternate costume for Cammy.

    I mean, dude, at least choose one of the dolls with a different hairdo.

    • Altin

      Like Juli T__T

      • Brion Valkerion

        My favorite doll. But I guess she is in 4 if we split hairs about it (T-Hawk’s Ending)

      • leingod

        Juli would’ve been cool. Even one of the pink-haired dolls, but man, not the one that looks exactly like Cammy with a mask.

        • pressstart

          At the end of the day, it’s still just a head swap, so I don’t see the big deal.

          • BloodyNights

            She would have been a head swap, with double D’s lol

        • Veedot

          Juli would be worst, She has 0 moves that set her apart from cammy

      • DaiRaiOh

        Can’t really blame them for not putting her in the game considering story reasons. And Decapre was one of the more interesting dolls in the comics anyway.

        • leingod

          Maybe… just not visually. I mean, DeCammy.

      • katamari damacy

        It would have forced them to change the model too as the breasts are bigger than cammy’s

    • Johzho

      It’s so people would buy her costume set, I guarantee it.

  • endril

    she seems to play really different from cammy, but it’s still like, the single laziest thing they could have done

    • Shippoyasha

      Funny thing is, now I want to see the rest of the Dolls in the cast (or at least some. 10+ Dolls would be too much). But hopefully they have more of a unique style to them and hopefully not all of them will have Cammy’s moveset or Juli/Juni’s.

      At least this girl will be charge-motion based so that’s definitely new at least.

      • Johzho

        Seems that most of the dolls are used as experiment by Seth in SFIV story, and Juni was tossed off a carrier by juri.

        So I guess Decapre was sent by seth or sumthn? who knows~

      • http://takopako.tumblr.com takopako

        the doll to the far right(in the 16 bit scene) was the most interesting looking, i think,

  • mikanko

    I’ll agree it can be argued laziness due to the model swap, but from what the showed on the stream she’ll at least play nothing like Cammy. She’s a charge character with teleports, so saying she’s a clone is a bit much.

    • pressstart

      People call Evil Ryu and Oni clones too, but anyone who actually looks beyond the graphics know each “clone” has their own playstyle. Too bad some people just don’t see it that way.

      • OtoriGolden

        People have been complaining since Ryu and Ken, it comes with the territory of fighting game audiences. Just like jokes about wacky adjectives in fighting game titles.

      • Johzho

        It’s just that people already don’t like fighting against cammy right now, and making the hyped fifth reveal a cammy-like character makes it extra salt.

        • Kaihedgie

          Well there are tons of people who don’t like shotoclones or fighting against them, so this isn’t any different.

    • Chow

      Based on the preview videos floating around, I think Decapre plays a LOT like Juni from SFA3. For example, Juni had a Cannon Drill (or was that Juli?) and “Dash-Teleport” (just not as complex as what they showed for Decapre). Juni also had a SPD, but I don’t think I saw that in the videos.

    • BlueTree

      Actually, based on their upbringing which causes different epigenetic factors to create differences in Clones or Identical Twins, you can have “clones” or “twins” that are different from each other in ways similar to what you’ve described. One choosing to smoke or having different genetic methylation turning on or off certain genes blah blah

      If you look this up, saying Decapre is a clone actually isn’t a stretch. Saying she’s a literal copy would be a stretch, but even that is… uh. I guess the mask helps.

  • Saphiren
    • pressstart

      Ono did say a lot of people would be disappointed :P

      • BlueTree

        Don’t you ruin this with your truth!

        • colorblindnightmare

          Ruin what? That they added a clone? Adding the otjer 4 were fine, but this is a blatantly lazy and rather dumb addition. There’s nothing to ruin.

          • BlueTree

            I’m talking about the first picture, not the shitty state of SF.

      • Death Metal

        See, he went as far as acknowledging that people would be disappointed. Why choose to add a character that nobody cares for? People’s wishes were pretty plain to see: either Karin, Mika or some other character that fans actually care about. But a doll? And among them, the one that looks exactly like Cammy with a mask? Come on.

        • Setsu Oh

          ecause they are recycling stuff. they cannot spend big money on characters that are to be built up rather than iterrated upon.
          my guess is either/they do have an sf5 up their sleeve and can’t spend more on a ‘dead soon’ title or /and they don’t trust the ‘comeback’ of a genre that does not go past the original title that restarted it all success wise.

    • Shane Guidaboni

      This is my favorite picture on the internet right now. It combines my favorite movie, with a trolling Ono.

  • Six

    “You’ll never guess who the fifth character is!”

    “It’s Decapre, isnt it?”

    “YOU’LL NEVER GUESS!”

  • Jaeger Knighty

    Super Clone Fighter V: The Cloning

    • d19xx

      By Capclone…

    • BlueTree

      The best part about saying these characters are clones is that twins/clones actually ARE different, so when folks run in going “But she has different moves” it’s like… “Yep, CLONES.” Epigenetics and SCIENCE for the best jokes.

  • Takane Shijou

    This is a bit underwhelming.

    Then again, after all these different versions. I suppose it fits.

  • _buchu

    Yeah, I didn’t guess right on that one. Looks like she’ll be interesting to play, though.

  • OtoriGolden

    Not really disappointed by this after all those hints, I was already sold on the game with the $15 price tag and edition select

  • Hinataharem

    Evil Ryu, Evil Akuma, and now Evil Cammy

    • leingod

      Funny thing is, Akuma was already evil :P

      • d19xx

        Aww come on he’s just kinda gloomy and all. It’s not like he downvotes cat videos on youtube….

        • leingod

          So regular Akuma is just emo?

    • NightzeroAX

      “Evil” Akuma?

      • Hinataharem

        It was a bad joke. I was calling Oni “Evil” Akuma, in the same vein as Ryu

  • Wondering_Zero

    I’m hype, probably because I didn’t set my expectations too high. At first I was on the fence and then I saw how she played(in the exhibition match) and now I’m interested. She looks like Cammy, but she’s a charge character. (EX. Balrog, Bison, Vega, etc. etc.) Her moveset is flashy and she looks like fun to play so I’ll probably pick her up.

    People complain she’s a clone but MK has a ton of clones, Smash Bros Melee was practically built on clones, and even Brawl has quite a few. When Capcom does it it kills the hype, but everyone else gets a passing mention and maybe a few angry fans. Honestly, they have a track record of recycling stuff in their games. The Alpha series used the same sprites through all of it’s iterations, MvC 1&2 shared the same sprites with other games. At this point you should expect it, but at least they’re trying to change the character enough so that she plays nothing like her clone.

    I’m not gonna sell this character short just because she looks the same as another character. I look forward to Ultra and can’t wait to try my hands at Decapre.

  • Jimmy

    Lol but at the end of the day it’s not even funny.. Capcom is now like an action manga turned into a gag manga.

  • Ninjagoon

    Capcom announces one character with a resemblance to another and everyone goes crazy. Tekken, Street Fighter, Killer Instinct, Smash Bros. does it, and few to no one complains. Come on yall. Atleast try to ask about the character before you go on a rant. She plays NOTHING like Cammy. Yea some of her normals have the same animation but those can change by the time the game comes out. She’s also a charge character which makes her completely different from cammy already. Heres some videos on how she plays:

    • Shane Guidaboni

      Doesn’t matter. Looks like Cammy.

    • Hunts Rattata

      Let’s not pretend no one complained about Smash clones, especially in Melee, where most pairs had one character be flat-out better than the other.

    • Tonton Ramos

      Pfft that chick got nothin on Ramlethal Valentine from Guilty Gear Xrd

      • MSJ

        what has that got anything to do with what is shown here?

        • Tonton Ramos

          He mentions Tekken, Smash Bros and Kiler Instinct on that comment…

          • MSJ

            alright let me fix my face then.

    • Quan Chi

      That’s a lie. Everybody complained about Tekken xD
      Capcom has more clones than NETHERREALM STUDIOS. THAT, is a feat to BEHOLD!

  • D-Rev

    I need some fries to go with my salt.

  • http://youtube.com/RyeANDRinGaming B-Dazzle

    Nice to see Alpha 3 Cammy make a return in Ultra Street Fighter 4. With minor changes. Has all of Alpha 3 Cammy’s moves, and has cammy’s level 3 super from Alpha 3 as an Ultra combo. Oh well, it’s Capcom were talking about here but I’m at least happy i’ll get to play with Alpha 3 Cammy again. And also a nice tease by Capcom into possibly bringing back the Alpha series! :) I hope they’ll be an Online Alpha collection or just straight out Alpha 4 or a reboot

    • DaiRaiOh

      Since when was Cammy a charge character exactly?

      • leingod

        Wasn’t Juni a charge character?

        • http://youtube.com/RyeANDRinGaming B-Dazzle

          Yes Juni was a charge character. So technically it’s all 3 dolls combine to be Decapre. I don’t know why that person thought I said Cammy was a charge character. But technically she HAD a charge move from Alpha 3 which was her Level 3 super. Called “Killer Bee Assault”

      • http://youtube.com/RyeANDRinGaming B-Dazzle

        Did I ever said Cammy was a charge character? NO. I specifically stated Decapre play style. NOT anything related to Decapre being a Charge character and NOT related to Cammy being a charge character which she isn’t. Even though she had a charge level 3 max super from Alpha 3. Only charge character that counts as a charge character are ones that had charging specials and supers and that doll is Juni while Cammy HAS a CHARGE SUPER which is from Alpha 3 which was called “Killer Bee Assault” which Decapre has it as her Ultra combo in this game. And in fact, Decapre PLAYS exactly like all 3 dolls combines into one character with some minor changes. She’s a charge character like Juni and she has Cammy’s and Juli’s moves. Her ultra is Cammy’s Level 3 super from Alpha 3, which is why I stated the fact about Alpha 3 Cammy being IN the game as Decapre. Which is why I’m interested in actually maining her and doing some videos for her too. Because of the way she plays.

  • d19xx

    This is like a 3d version of Mugen. Rip sprites of existing character, add some pixels here and there, and you have a new character!

    • DaiRaiOh

      Not like she plays entirely different or anything….oh wait.

    • D H

      Yeah… it’s terrible. I mean, this is something that Street Fighter has absolutely, in no possible way, ever come close to doing before.

      Oh, wait… ^.^

    • xe7en

      I’m still waiting for Ahegao Chun li though…

    • Kaihedgie

      Then clearly you have never played Super Street Fighter II Turbo

  • Go2hell66

    Wow thats kinda lame…

  • Shane Guidaboni

    That is so lame.

  • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

    I’m willing to bet anything all the people complaining now will stop complaining once we see her being used in matches by a few decent players. Decapre doesn’t look like she plays anything like Cammy.

    • Ferrick

      lol

    • 하세요

      If they saw the exhibition match when Combofiend used her, she plays nothing like Cammy, especially since Decapre is a charge character.

      • MaximDualBlade

        Agood player could make any character look good.

        • Exkaiser

          Well, yes, that’s the point of being a good player.

    • leingod

      problem is, she LOOKS like Cammy. I mean, just a different hairdo and I bet reception would’ve been better.

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

        It isn’t as though she won’t have different costumes.

        • leingod

          I certainly hope so!

    • Jrocy247

      But as you can PLAINLY see that’s not the issue at all. The 5th “new character that has never appeared in SF”…..Is a character that was already in SF.except we slapped a mask on her and changed her color palettes, few of her moves already implanted into this “New Character” and SLIGHTLY altered…

      CREATIVITY? WHERE?

      • Kaihedgie

        She technically did not appear in any Street Fighter game since there is no official sprite of Decapre.

        Again though, Ono gave you people five hints so you wouldn’t give your hopes and so he’d be able to narrow down all the guesses for you..

        And you all still whined

        • BlueTree

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVccRYSG20g

          Shes on the far right. “Official Sprite.”

          The funny thing is Ono for once being direct, actually said “I don’t think many people will like her” or something to that extent.

          I think making a Cammy headswap, at this point, is pretty lazy. Trying to have your cake (not put in too much work) and eat it too (claim you have a “new” character in every sense of the term) is pretty fucked up.

          I wouldn’t blame anyone for being underwhelmed, as much as some people like playing Street Fighter 4, there’s really not a lot there for other types of players unless you want to get roped into the current hustle of modern fighting games.

          • leingod

            It’s not even a head swap… she has the exact same head plus mask.

          • BlueTree

            Pfft, like I’d even argue against that. I read the same line but better elsewhere on the internet, but they summed it up as “Cammy in Bison’s outfit was more work than this.”

            Capcom hitting a pretty high level of stupidity, I can’t begin to go with how bad this looks if anyone looks at how they made people wait 10 months hyping some super secret… reused model and barely swapped out head. They have no one to thank but themselves.

          • Kaihedgie

            And making a roid-raging Super Saiyan version of Akuma isn’t?

            Also, even to this very day we’re still seein’ characters like her.. Lambda-11 comes to mind. But of course again, no one actually paid any attention to how she actually fights.

          • BlueTree

            You’ve been trying to run this argument elsewhere, and I would propose you consider that what people aren’t vocalizing is that they were kept out of the loop for 10 months about a character that does reuse assets. I was a kid when those “shoto clones” were announced, I never felt like I was out of the loop or exploited or had my time wasted on their announcement.

            No matter how much you want to go “But we already have shoto clones”, that’s not what anyone is saying, and it’s kind of rude to expect people to listen to you when you ignore that core of the issue… even if people don’t quite realize that’s what it is.

            As much as you want to run “but shotos already exist”, this is literally Ralphie in a Christmas Story levels of announcement hype.

            And honestly, I don’t care how she plays, because I don’t like SF4. I play old Street Fighter games and will probably play the new Guilty Gear. There is literally nothing to this character for a player who might not be into Street Fighter beyond if they already play fighting games. Street Fighter 4 is a Street Fighter game for Street Fighter fans, I think it’s a smoldering ember, personally.

            If you were Capcom, holding a character like this close to your chest is baffling in terms of stupidity. I wouldn’t say it’s the end of the world, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to correct anyone blitzing Capcom for not just saying “We’re working on making one of the dolls playable”, imagine how that might have, gasp, put some control in their court rather than having us go “Well they didn’t have budget anyway.”

            Just leave it all on the table I guess.

          • Kaihedgie

            Ono gave you five good and rather specific hints to narrow down all the guesses and you still act surprised. Nobody’s fault but your own. It really isn’t.

            And if you don’t like this game: why are you even here?

          • BlueTree

            Because I do like Street Fighter as a property, but I’m not stupid enough to give Capcom my money.

            Anyway, you were never in the loop, but I, and much of the rest of the internet, had already guessed it would be a doll.

            In fact, trying to imply that I am not commenting on a situation and am actually just part of the part of that you don’t like? If you don’t want to have a conversation, then why are YOU here? Just to be an asshole? I’m sorry I tried just to have you make this about personal attacks.

            Yes, a doll clone is worse than a shoto clone and the internet would agree with me before you. Write in my cage of torment, my dear Leon.

            ANYWAY, I’m given the notion to believe that Capcom WAS going to try to do this with Evil Ryu and Oni, but people were able to dipswitch unlock them in the arcade version at Next Level… so the players literally saved Capcom from making the mistake they made here. Which was hyping stupid ideas/characters.

            See how that works?

          • Kaihedgie

            You replied to me, so I’m replyin’ back. Simple as that.

            I on the other hand, do not comment on things I don’t care for or like. You ain’t gonna see me posting on a Hatsune Miku article, so don’t tryin’ lumpin’ with the other people I criticize

            “Yes, a doll clone is worse than a shoto clone” Yes, a clone, even though she only shares two moves with Cammy, the rest of her moveset being completely different. Oh, but you don’t care about that at all.

          • BlueTree

            Perhaps you’ll never realize this, but this is about bad marketing and how Capcom seems to be really good at that.

  • harmonyworld

    didn’t everyone already kinda know this
    talk about lying lol!
    oh well, it’ll be an interesting character I guess~~

  • Roberto

    thanks capcom
    that was what I wanted

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Yay! Another girl! Not complaining here :P

  • MasterScrub

    I don’t know what internet Ono was on, but a hell of a lot more than four people guessed Decapre.

    Really disappointed that they hyped up Cammy with a mask for 8 months, but she looks fun to play at least.

    • Kaihedgie

      We also hyped up Shin Evil Akuma (Oni) amongst all the whining. This’ll be no different once people play with her

  • NightzeroAX

    At least her Theme song is nice?

    • leingod

      It’s a remix of Cammy’s :P

  • PlatinumMad

    That was fun

  • MikelAL93

    And to think that the numerous Kasumi and Kyo clones we have were worse than this…

  • Kaihedgie

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC-Hl33Xqpk#t=185 Here’s the video. And ho boy, look at those dislikes

  • Ethan_Twain

    Ah, the rich tradition of uninspired street fighter clone characters. I was kinda hoping for a dark Ken, because then we would have:

    Ryu (Ryu)
    American Ryu (Ken)
    Evil Ryu (Akuma)
    Evil Ryu (Evil Ryu)
    Evil Evil Ryu (Oni Akuma)
    Evil American Ryu (Dark Lord Ken or whatever)

    But instead we get evil Cammy. Lame! I wanted my fourth variation on an evil Ryu!

    • Kaihedgie

      *Violent Ken

      But this is the part that gets me: People actually drool over the shotoclones. They were all sweaty over the roid-raging Smurf version of Akuma but lose their marbles over a Psycho-powered Cammy.

      No one’s fault but the fans

      • Johnathan Lenig-Lopez

        And Capcom, due to their major hyping for the 5th character.

  • Prithivi

    It seems she is a charge character, so at least it will be different to play as her than playing as Cammy even when their normal moveset is the same. Still… Meh.

  • ivanchu77

    All this hype for a lazy copy and paste, but oh well, with capcom bad rep recently i´m not surprised at all

    wathever, with blazblue CP and guilty gear xrd i have enough fighters to keep me busy :) , not interested in this game one bit,

  • Tonton Ramos

    Pfft Ramlethal is better than her…

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    called it. lazyness is something that we can expect from capcom
    “five people online had guessed right who the new character is”
    yeah, five people + the FGC + other gaming communities

  • Jettythesunfish

    Well, seeing as people already predicted this character, I’m…surprised.

  • Tarkovsky

    I find it funny how people complaining don’t even know how different she plays from Cammy. For one, she’s a charge character. Oh well, you can’t please everybody I guess.

  • Göran Isacson

    ha ha, aw man that intro trailer crushing hopes and trolling fans, all in a days work for Capcom. And all of that, just for what looks like a clone of Cammy… kinda would’ve preferred Novembelu, or at least her in her “non-doll” form since I think T. Hawk actually rescued her from doll-service in the Alpha storyline? That could’ve been cool, even if people probably would’ve complained that we got a lady wrestler who wasn’t Mika. But yeah… can’t say that clone Cammy gives me much hype. Though maybe those weird stinger blades of hers will make her play different enough from Cammy that it won’t be a total clone-situation, who knows…

    Also, still kidna salty it wasn’t Jessica Haggar. THAT could have been a cool twist too. But eh, guess we’ll wait and see what the doll has to offer…

  • Istillduno

    Yes Capcom, only 5 people guessed her, well done.

    This is because nobody wanted her.

    • Kaihedgie

      Says who

      • Istillduno

        The complete and utter lack of hype and requests for her before she was announced?

        Only 5 people responding and knowing her name?

        • Kaihedgie

          Actually, more than five people guessed it was Decapre. Do you read the comics even?

        • doubleO7

          I saw several people guess Decapre on various sites. She does fit all the hints after all.

  • The Watcher

    In all seriousness i rather have box art megaman

  • Herok♞

    I don’t see why everyone is so annoyed, the character fits all 5 hints. Also people were predicting one of the dolls and are now shocked when it is one of the dolls.

      She was in SF Alpha 3!
      And dont say she wasnt playable,they said “not in” instead of “not playable”
      People are not shocked but dissapointed. At least the other dolls look different. She is Cammy with a mask. Thats just lazy

      • Kaihedgie

        There is no sprite of Decapre, so no, she wasn’t in Alpha 3

        • XiaomuArisu

          There is a sprite
          It was even in the trailer
          You see her in Alpha 3 Arcade mode when you fight Juni and Juli

          • Kaihedgie

            I didn’t see it

          • XiaomuArisu

            Then get glasses

      • Armane

        Pretty sure they clarified that hint as never being playable in an SF game.

        I hate what they’ve done with her design though. I always thought the idea of a Vega/Cammy mash up would be a cool addition. Instead they’ve combined Psylocke with M.Bison.

  • koksuckaahh

    All that hype for a palette swap?

  • monkey king

    So it was one of the dolls as many people thought, me included, though I didn’t think it would decapre.
    I’m gonna take a stab in the dark here and say decapre probably is to cammy what evil ryu is to ryu.

  • MrJechgo

    Ugh… horrible choice… Let’s take every hint one by one:
    “5th character never appeared in a [fighting] game before”
    Bogus, downright bogus. Why? Because all the Dolls were in SF Alpha 3 as part of Juni’s and Juli’s intros.

    “5th character is somehow related to SF”
    Yes, that was established in Alpha 3, not in UDON’s comic books

    “5th character was last seen in the SF UDON comics”
    Yes, but it’s not a comic-exclusive character.

    “5th character is female”
    Yes, duh

    “5th character was guessed right by 5 people total on the net”
    I highly doubt that 1) she was ever wanted and 2) she was mentioned that many times BECAUSE she wasn’t that requested.

    “5th character will disappoint fans, according to Ono and Capcom”
    Congratulations, you hit that one right into next week.

    Seriously, of all the characters available, they had to go with a palette swap? It was lazy back then, and it’s still lazy now.
    1) It’s a reskin of Cammy, meaning that the base mesh was already completed at 90%.
    2) Not all of her attacks are new, not even her idle stance. I’ll give them props for changing most of her specials, her super and ultras though.
    3) Of all the Dolls, they went with the one that required the least modifications, or they still don’t want weapon users in the game despite having Rolento.

    If they wanted to recycle, they should have taken Alex from SF3: take his model from TvC, upgrade the model and add his missing attacks… DONE!

    Once again, it’s a case of “Well… guess we have no choice” instead of “Sweet! A character that I wanted!”… which is similar to fans’ reaction to Evil Ryu and Oni in AE.

  • Hagaren

    Ok I’m in no way, shape, or form a Street Fighter expert but all I see there is Cammy with a mask…

  • Tincho Kudos

    Colour me surprised *rolls eyes

  • fairysun

    NOOOOO !!!!!

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Man, those game over sequences were really violent

  • Mind0105A

    I don’t know why, but I’m not surprised.

  • Effy Zoey Croft

    Kinda underwhelming. I had guessed it was her, but was kinda hoping it wouldn’t be. Bit lazy of Capcom just to give us a re-skin of Cammy wearing a mask.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Im not even angry. Its hilarious! OVERHYPED CHARACTER EVER XD

  • KingGunblader

    Is this better or worse than Bad Box Art Mega Man?

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Well, as a member of the Mega Man fanbase I don’t feel a Too Soon so I think it’s better

    • Sentsuizan_93

      In my opinion: better.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Is it Mika? No
    Retsu? No
    Any of the Dolls who doesnt look like Cammy? No
    XD Capcom deserves a troll award~

    • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

      Would’ve liked Retsu.

      • XiaomuArisu

        Bet other would too

        • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

          Yeah.

          … Or heck, any character at all but a Bison doll!

          Or at the very least the T.Hawk Cammy!

  • Cephrien

    So Chronophantasma comes out next week gais~

  • Quan Chi

    I’m surprised that Siliconera didn’t delete this article yet. Like they did with the article about Capcom and DLC xD

    • 하세요

      Those comments were just beating a dead horse. This is actually news, whether people are happy about it or not. At least they’re staying on topic on whether they are happy or sad. DLC whining has been there, done that.

  • Kaminari683

    What happened to my post?

  • Hector Velar

    soooo Cammy with a mask uh?… well that’s not new, at least they could have changed the hair like they did in SF Alpha series with the many cammy palette swap clones she had, those have different hair styles. This is pure laziness, most certainly not worth the hype.

    • Kaihedgie

      The only thing that’s even remotely recycled is the model. Her playstyle and moves are completely different.

      • Death Metal

        The model is not “remotely” recycled. It IS absolutely the same 3D model, down to the same rigging, idle animation and a few other details. She may play differently, but that is BESIDES the point of what people are complaining.

        Capcom dun’ goof on this one, there is no question about it.

        • Kaihedgie

          People complain because knee-jerk reactions are preferable over anything else. No need to look at gameplay videos or details from the people themselves. All they need to do is just look at her appearance and whine.

          Of course we didn’t have anything of that with Oni and Evil Ryu even though both were shotoclones

          • Hector Velar

            But was it worth the hype? Maybe if they would have not hyped it as they did people would not have cared to complain today. But because they did and sold it as this would be the greatest invention besides fire in humanity then they just made people disappointed which lately that seems to be the company’s goal.and for those people who say she does not have same move set, are you blind? She did cannon drill and several non-special moves are identical. Please settle for mediocrity and that’s all you will get. I have standards.

          • Kaihedgie

            Capcom didn’t do any actual hyping up. That was the fans’ doing. Capcom was pretty hush hush about the fifth character reveal and Ono gave you enough hints to eliminate any wayward guessing

          • Haganeren

            8 month before showing the last character with a lot of hint is the definition of “building a hype”.

            Whatever the character would have been, 8 months was too much. If it was like THREE new character, it would be worth it… And yeah in addition of that, this character didn’t cost them very much. It’s the same model as Cammy.

            Of course it play differently than Cammy and the character is without a doubt very interesting to play… But that besides the point, that character should have been showed like one month after the other and it would have been fine.

          • Kaihedgie

            Did Capcom show any silohuettes? Did the say “anyone you know”. Did they say it was a fan favorite? No? Okay then.

            Again, if you’re amongst the people expecting previously playable characters or….Karin or R.Mika then you REALLY have absolutely no one but yourselves to blame since Ono explicitly deconfirmed them.

          • Haganeren

            I was expecting more characters for a hype this long so i was out of the question from the beginning.

            There is more than one way for making a hype. Why a silhouette must be obligatory ? If they didn’t wanted a hype at all (Why i wonder…), they wouldn’t said us that a five secret character existed…

            Maybe that would be a nice surprise for those who buy the game… Or maybe they could have talk about Decarpre two/three weeks before the game is out.

            But here right now, 8 months of hint like “no, it’s not this one” are just ridiculous… To be honest, even with some “awesome” character, it would still be ridiculous so you can see why it’s worth with this one.

          • Death Metal

            (Unintended double post, disqus was being a bitch)

          • Death Metal

            I would agree with you most of the times, but not this one. It is different this time because, then, with those characters, people kind of new what to expect; for starters, they weren’t kept a secret for months on end, so expectations were kept within a certain range of antecipation. In this case, even though lots were already guessing Decapre as being the 5th character, we were still stepping on eggshells because there was no confirmation at all, and there were a few other different characters that would fit the hints given a couple weeks ago, so it’s understandable that expectations for a new character were very high, like a new Juri or Hakan; the “hype” was basically built by Capcom themselves upon the fact that it has been kept a secret for so long. When presented with Decapre fot sure now, it’s understandable that people are going like “Wow, so much for ‘this’?”. I, for one, felt exactly like that. She may play very different, but she doesn’t “feel” 100% new, even if she was never playable before. Heck, other known, past fighters in the series would have felt like newer blood to SFIV. Also, people have been claiming for Karin, R. Mika, Maki for ages now; it’s astonishing that Capcom hasn’t even given a suitable answer to the community as to why these are not being considered. I understand they don’t owe the community any satisfaction, but it would certainly have been a gesture of good will at least to do as much.

            Anyway, I’m still hyped for the other characters (except Hugo, I detest him, but I’m sure others are pleased), but the 5th was such a letdown.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    So, with all the “Waaah! Waaaah! Cammy clone” nonsense going on here, I take it none of you looked at the commentary by Combofiend.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfsKVOuEyow
    Similar model, sure, but in this case, similar model =/= clone.
    She has a different moveset from Cammy anyway.
    Way to jump the gun on that front…..

    • 하세요

      This video needs to be added in the article. Her play-style is indeed nothing like Cammy.

      From the point of view of non-top level play though, I can see why everyone thinks she’s a clone. They don’t realize how drastic the changes are.

      • Sentsuizan_93

        Exactly. For casual level play, I can see why people say that. However, from an advanced competitive perspective, this doesn’t really feel as “cloned” as some preemptively make it out to be. A tad overpowered, sure, but that could do with some tweaking.

        • 하세요

          She seem OC now, but she’s new and no one knows what she can do. That’s the only reason Combofiend blew the other guy up at Final Round.

          Once she gets downloaded, we’ll see how she turns out in the end. Her DP is pretty awesome, though.

  • Yan Zhao

    8 months of build-up and hype for a lazy clone character haha. This doesnt surprise me one bit from Capcom.

  • Lalum

    She seems pretty unique and fun to play as, especially since I expected her to be a near 1:1 copy of Cammy. What’s the problem?

  • Johnathan Lenig-Lopez

    Objection! Capcom specifically stated the fifth character hadn’t been in a fighting game previously.

  • Juliano C

    lol crapcom xD
    edit: wow, capcom fanboys are all at full power here O.o

    • Tonton Ramos

      Hope you don’t get your comment removed…

      • Kaihedgie

        It’s gonna be

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    So very disappointing. It seems like all of the new characters have been recycled from one place or another. Regardless of them “playing differently,” this was not worth all the hyping up it got.

  • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

    Meeeeh.

    Yeah yeah, she plays “different” and all but I was hoping no more Bison dolls would come out.

  • Syn

    So a re-used character model with a different moveset ey, well, nothing new from CAPCOM there, i for one would have loved Kairi from EX series to have featured, seems to have a decent story behind him compared to being a doll/cammy re-use(character model, not moveset blah blah blah).. Feels a bit lazy IMO wasnt really worth the buildup.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    sry Street Fighter fans but i’m sitting this one out as I hear “Guilty Gear Xrd” calling my name.

  • Ronldbx6

    Wow, a lot of people were right who were saying that it would be one of the dolls Decapre.

    • Vash bane

      yep and they went though all the trouble of making us guess only to add another one

  • BeatTheGG

    Ah…. So it was Decapre, my fourth guess….

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    I was jumping for joy when Rainbow Mika came out. Oh well. I am glad I have still have the ability to dream.

  • xxx128

    Get Yoshiki Okamoto back and kick this ono muppet OUT. THX.

  • Vash bane

    cutscenes or a short movie?

  • XiaomuArisu

    And who?
    Mu12 who play different then Noel or Nu13?
    Terumi who is Hazama with a COMPLETLY different fighting style?
    NOW SHOO

  • Kaihedgie

    I’m referring to Terumi. I know that he relies on meter, but he still has the same attacks as Hazama. And before Chronophantasma, Continuum Shift had Lambda-11

  • XiaomuArisu

    LOLOLOL
    I play Terumi
    He has completly different moves
    and Lambda was a color pallete of NU
    She only had a different name for story reasons

  • Kaihedgie

    Even though Nu herself is also in the game. I know the circumstances revolving her. Doesn’t change the fact that she’s still a clone

  • Ferrick

    it’s amazing on how far you’d go for capcom

  • XiaomuArisu

    O.O
    XD
    Nu was her ultimate form in CS
    You dimwit

  • Kaihedgie

    It’s amazing how people still care about everything Capcom does under the sun long after repeating their negative comments

  • Kaihedgie

    I know that. Still. A. Clone.

  • XiaomuArisu

    your logic
    Terumi + new movesets = bad
    Decapre + cammy cloine = good

  • XiaomuArisu

    No
    She is a color pallete
    different skin
    She doesnt count as a different character

  • Kaihedgie

    Didn’t say Terumi was bad

  • XiaomuArisu

    “I’m referring to Terumi. I know that he relies on meter, but he still has the same attacks as Hazama”
    your words

  • Kaihedgie

    Did I call him bad, though?

  • Ferrick

    yes

  • XiaomuArisu

    you implied it.
    XD jesus your fanboyism is just to funny

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Don’t let this worry you Kahedgie and remember what I told you about worrying about these trivial things.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    End it guys. All of yas.

  • Kaminari683

    So I get trolled AND my post gets deleted? What the heck?! I was trying to make a point.

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Maybe you wrote a gif (forbidden here) or vocabulary was not appropiate?

  • Kaihedgie

    It contained the word Crapcom. That’s enough grounds to get deleted

  • Kaminari683

    I don’t think I put a gif in my post. Don’t know how actually. Thanks for the tip all the same

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    No worries. Things like “Crapcom” tend to get deleted though.

  • Kaminari683

    Ah! I see. If the mods can see this, would it be ok to repost if I change the offending word?

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Probably but try being as optimistic as possible. That’s Disqus’ spirit :D

  • Kaminari683

    Fair enough!
