Famitsu’s revealed a new character for Capcom’s upcoming Street Fighter 4 in their latest issue! From my limited japanese capabilities, I’ve figured out that her name is Crimson Viper (there on the right side of the image. On the left it says “A newcomer challenges Ryu and Ken!”). She does look a bit like King (edit: maybe more Vanessa? I don’t play KOF so I don’t know lols) from the KOF series what with her tuxedo-ish outfit and all, except that she’s got some weird out of style Japanese rockabilly pompadour hairstyle thing goin on. With those studded gloves on though she probably isn’t somebody you’d want to insult on that point. So with this that makes 5 confirmed characters so far I think? (Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Dhalsim, and now Crimson Viper. CL and Dhal haven’t made any visual appearances yet though…) edit: Gouki/Akuma confirmed as well.
Haven’t played a proper Street Fighter title in years, but still pretty excited and looking forward to this.
