New Character Laura Is the Latest Addition to Street Fighter V

A shocking debut.

Zangief isn’t the only Street Fighter character Capcom is revealing this week. In a screenshot collection of the latest trailer, Famitsu has given us a look at Laura, a character debuting in Street Fighter V.

Capcom producer¬†Yoshinori Ono loves teasing Street Fighter fans by putting Blanka all over his Twitter account, making them believe that the electrical beast will be added to the game. However, it looks like the new character Laura is taking Blanka’s spot.


Laura’s green and yellow outfit could be a reference to the Brazilian flag, and she seems to have a few moves with an electrical aura like Blanka. It’s also likely that the colorful background stage is meant to be Brazil.

Blanka might not make the Street Fighter V roster, but another electricity-powered Brazil native is a suitable replacement. We’ll have to wait for the official trailer to see her in action.

There’s only a few more characters to be revealed for Street Fighter V. Which character are you hoping to see next? Let us know in the comments.
