Capcom has teased some information regarding the fifth, as-yet unannounced character coming to Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Joining Elena, Hugo, Poison and Rolento will be a female competitor from the Street Fighter universe. Although the character has never appeared in playable form, Capcom says she’s a “perfect-fit” for the series.
Street Fighter lead Yoshinori Ono teased the info at Capcom Cup and confirmation was provided in a Famitsu interview with producer Tomoaki Ayano, as translated by Shoryuken.
Shoryuken speculates that the character is Sarai Kurosawa, who appeared in UDON’s manga series, as well as making cameos in Ibuki’s ending in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike and during Street Fighter x Tekken. You can see a picture of her below.
Ultra Street Fighter IV is being released as an expansion for Super Street Fighter IV and SSFIV: AE in early June for $14.99/€14.99, and as a standalone game in August 2014 for $39.99/€39.99 containing all the previously released costume DLC.
