Is this Fortune Teller an upcoming DLC fighter?
In his latest video, VesperArcade takes a look at “Menat”–the new Street Fighter V character revealed in Ed’s character story mode. As discussed previously, the fortune teller bears a striking resemblance to the second-last silhouette in the Season 2 teaser image–leading us to wonder if she’s one of the playable “all-new” fighters promised for later this year.
In the video, VesperArcade compares the convincing silhouette match-up, and how the outline in question was also widely considered to be the doll Satsuki. More interesting, however, is how Menat’s arrival was predicted by an old leaked character list (that made the rounds before Ed was even revealed) that describes Menat, an Egyptian girl that is Rose’s apprentice. “Fate is a fixed line…” after all…
Now, even Menat’s name is not officially confirmed, the story mode only dubs her as “Fortune Teller.” However, Rose’s CFN Portal profile does indicate that she took on an apprentice. The combined evidence is pretty compelling that we’re far from done with this character. VesperArcade also speculates on how a fighter like Menat might play in Street Fighter V, taking her design and association with Rose into account.
