Yesterday, we reported on the return of the Russian grappler Zangief, the latest classic character to join Street Fighter V, and now we’ve got some more exciting news. A brand new character has been leaked online (oops) by Famitsu, the renowned Japanese game site. Allow me to introduce the kick-ass Brazilian fighter by the name of Laura.
Behold as she dons a vibrant green jumpsuit, but don’t hold it against her. Rumor has it that Laura has insane electrical powers and grappling skills, as you can see in the header photo. She has a headlock around Ryu as lightning creates an aura around her, and according to some photo’s that were posted on Eventhubs, Laura is adept in the martial art of jiu-jitsu. So, I think it’s safe to say she’ll be a force to be reckoned with.
Capcom has yet to release any information about Laura (and Famitsu has taken down their post), so we’ll just have to wait to find out what other tricks she has up her sleeve. Note to Capcom: can you please release an official Laura press release and character trailer already? We want to see how fast she is, what her special moves are.
Street Fighter V will be released early-ish next year on PC and PS4. I know, it can’t come soon enough.
And there’s one final new character to be revealed, so stay tuned for that. What kind of power do you want them to have, especially if it could be anything? Tell us in the comments below.
