Another rumor regarding the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV game has surfaced today. This time it is about the unnamed mysterious 5th character.
New female fighter. You get my support :-p
I was hoping the new character would be Master Goutetsu (akuma and gouken's sensai), but Gouken's daughter "little miss" (named in gouken's Streetfighter canon storyline) would be the next logical choice....IMO.
Goutetsu, is a actually dead.
Yea i know, but Gouken was dead too after Akuma performed the raging demon on him during their fight in Gouken's dojo.......Capcom even revised Gouken's official storyline as well. Just saying....
@Akuma Very true, but it'd be nice not to have so many masters of the Ansatsuken. That's why i'd kill for Retsu to return.
Yea, Retsu would be a nice addition but I wonder who his rival would be in the game...lol
Her name is Cow. You know why.
Just please don't let it be another shoto fireball throwing character, we don't need anymore of those...
Hmmm , Capcom originally said the 5th character was a 'natural fit' , someone who has never been in a Street Fighter game' and they'll be making their fighting game debut. All of that hints to me that the character existed before hand - in some form, if not a character from another game perhaps one of the scrapped character designs for SF4??? This rumour hints that the character is female , although that silhouette on the article doesn't give much away. Before I thought it was going to be King Cobra, but now, I have no clue. I think Final Fight is the closest fit to the Street Fighter franchise - Maki has already been in a fighting game , so that only leaves Lucia - but C.Viper pretty much has her moveset, so it seems doubtful. Ono helped with Remember Me - but would Nilin be that high on the FGC wishlist??? Also doubtful. I do remember seeing the original design for Abel - which was female - maybe an unfinished character like that would explain the 'choose a name' competition. I'm all out of guesses , what do you guys think?
Here , it's a video looking at some of the early/scrapped character designs for street fighter. http://www.youtube.com/watc... And here's the original (female) design of Abel http://www.destructoid.com/... And the Street fighter Character wiki - which has some of the characters from the cartoon series ( Sarai ,Fuka , Kei etc) http://streetfighter.wikia....
The original design for Rufus was amazing. Also, to touch on your previous comment, a lot of people in the FGC want it to be a brand new character that is apart of the SF universe. There is not a lot of people that want a character like Nilin as it would break the universe. Save Nilin for the next crossover fighter.
Her name is Gertrude.
Nothing against street fighter i love street fighter, but no way will i get this. The game is great, but this is how my experience with part 4 came to be. I bought the original vanilla one a few years ago, enjoyed the heck out of it and kicked ass. I put it down for a while and tried coming back to it for Super street fighter and i got my ass handed to me. Then i upgraded to Arcade edition and i dont even know why i did that because going online to play just gave the same result. So i think i know better now to not bother with this Ultra version because im just going to get destroyed online xD :p To all the Sf4 fans out there enjoy your new upgrade. this game to me is just one of those great games if you havent been keeping up with it and mastering all the characters, learning how to pull off all the complex combos dont bother buying this your going to be terminated online.
Honestly I hope at some point they Bring Geki & Restu back, or give us D.D & Rook.
I hope this is the last upgrade to the SF4 series, i'm ready for Capcom to bring SF5 in this next gen but probably won't happen for a couple years (around same time frame when SF4 first came out on PS3) and still hoping it becomes included on the gaiki game collection thing that sony is supposed to launch next year on PS4.......There was an article posted a few days ago that Capcom said they don't have enough resources or something to make a next gen fighting game, which to me makes no sense unless they're just saying that as a smoke screen to take focus away from whatever they're planning for the next SF game on PS4/XB1. With the graphics we've seen in the demos and trailers of games so far, best believe the next SF or MK game is going to be amazing.
i'm excited to see Elena return, but i'm not giving Capcom anymore of my money.
