So, while we wait for Ultra Street Fighter IV to drop in early 2014, we have to sit and wonder who the mysterious fifth additional character is going to be. We already know that Elena, Poison, Hugo, and Rolento will be added to the game’s roster, and all of those are Street Fighter and Final Fight veterans. But given how unexpected some of those characters might be, why would Capcom keep quiet on this last additional combatant?
It seems that this will be a big deal—the character’s first appearance in any fighting game, if Capcom’s to be believed. According to a post on The Jace Hall Show, Capcom’s Matt Dahlgren said, “this character [has] never been featured in a Street Fighter game up until now […This] will be the first time he (or she) makes their fighting game debut.”
Who…who the heck could that be? To my knowledge, Capcom has basically stuck just about every single one of its characters into at least one of its fighting games. I started reaching around in my brain for characters who I might not have seen in a fighter, and I came up pretty short. Maybe Maximo? Uhhh…have they already used Captain Blue from Viewtiful Joe? Has Phoenix Wright shown up in any of these fighting games yet? I have no idea who this could be.
