Laura is Street Fighter V’s newest challenger


Earlier today, Capcom confirmed that Zangief would be returning to Street Fighter V with the standard introduction video. Now it looks like Famitsu may have jumped the gun and unveiled a new character before Capcom was ready.

Laura is a Skrillex-cornrowed Brazilian fighter who uses lightning and grapples to her advantage. In the (unfortunately low resolution) screenshots, you can see her forcing Ryu into a headlock as lightning crackles around her. I imagine a sports bra would be beneficial to her, but I don’t own a pair of breasts and therefore will refrain from giving this fictional woman advice.

Expect an official reveal very soon.
