Ultra Street Fighter IV’s Mysterious Fifth Character Pulled from Street Fighter Comics

Another day, another hint regarding Ultra Street Fighter IV’s fifth character. After a recent reveal by Capcom that the character is female, Siliconera has been provided with another teaser on her origins. Apparently, the new fighter appeared in the Street Fighter comics, which we’re assuming means either the Street Fighter II manga or UDON’s series, not the Malibu Comics travesty.

This seems to place even more of a focus on Ibuki’s friend Sarai Kurosawa (pictured below in the aforementioned UDON release and Ibuki’s Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike ending), especially with her cameo appearance in Street Fighter x Tekken, the most recent title the first four characters have been pulled from.

That being said, other strong choices still remain, including various Dolls, Gouken’s daughter, and more. All guesses are still entirely speculation at this point, so feel free to head to the comments and let us know who you think this and previous hints may be alluding to.
