Ultra Street Fighter IV’s Fifth New Character Is Female

0

Ultra Street Fighter IV’s fifth new character is female, says Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono. According to EventHubs, Ono teased the information during a stream for the Capcom Cup fighting game tournament this week.

 

Ono added that the character is not R. Mika from Street Fighter Alpha 3, which makes sense, since a prior hint from Capcom mentioned that the character in question has never appeared in a fighting game before.

 

That narrows the list down considerably. Vanessa from P.N.03? Another Resident Evil character?

 

Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available in June 2014 for consoles. A PC release will follow in August. More details on the game can be found here.
