Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Decapre – the fifth new fighter to arrive as part of upcoming update Ultra Street Fighter IV. First seen in Street Fighter Alpha 3 as one of antagonist M. Bison’s dolls, the catty character is set to unsheathe her claws later this year on the PlayStation 3. She’ll be joined by fellow newcomers Elena, Hugo, Rolento, and Poison – all of which previously appeared in Street Fighter X Tekken.

The hotly anticipated refresh is set to release in June as a downloadable update for Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, where it will set you back $14.99. However, if you’d prefer a new physical package, you’ll be able to buy a retail version of the overhauled brawler for $39.99 in August. Sadly, there’s still no word on a PlayStation 4 edition, but we have to imagine that it’s in the pipeline.

You can check out a trailer of the new character courtesy of the video embedded below. Are you eager to put your quarter-circle skills to the test yet again? Tap out your very best combo in the comments section.

Not for me unfortunately. It won't happen but I would prefer if the graphics when more in the direction of mortal kombat or soul calibur.

You know a reveal was bad when the internet's entire reaction ranges from rage to a resounding "meh."

Ono himself said people would be mad (at first).

@get2sammyb the art is nice but I'd prefer something more realistic. I can settle for mortal kombat and soul calibur. I bought injustice gods among us on the vita a couple of months ago and I really didn't like it much at all. Can't put my finger on it.

Decapre, Elenaand Poison might get me back into Street Fighter. Kind of like how Asuka and Lili got me back into Tekken.

@SimonAdebisi As a huge DC fan, I love the premise of Injustice, but I can't stand how stiff the MK fighting system feels - I guess years of fast paced DBZ games have spoiled me.

If it had been made with Tekken's smoother and more realistic fighting system I'd buy the Vita version, but that's not the case.

@BornOfEvil yeah, it just doesn't feel right, it looks nice and its a great idea but it was lacking somewhat, I'm going to give it another chance in the future but its probably going to disappoint me.



Kayoss said:

Wow. when they first hinted at a new character I was assuming someone very original and new. But now its just a pallete swap of an existing character. Vega and Cammy mated and gave birth to Decapre.



DarkKirby said:

We all know what everyone wanted was more Cammy everywhere.

Well, by everyone I mean James Chen and Kbrad.

Wish this was coming out for the PS4 but since its not I will have to get it on the Xbox 360. I am a sucker for the Street Fighter series.
