Street Fighter V’s new crop of characters have been hit and miss, but Menat certainly makes an intriguing first impression. The fortune teller from Ed’s single player story is set to become the next challenger to enter the ring of Capcom’s critically acclaimed (albeit oft maligned) fighter – and to be fair, she does look pretty unique to play as.

Able to summon orbs around her body, the purple-haired starlet has a lot of unique abilities in her locker: it seems she can reflect fireballs, teleport, and she also has very capable wrestling moves which belie her petite frame. Both in terms of visuals and gameplay we like the look of this character, and you'll get to try her out from 29th August, where she'll be accompanied by some new costumes.
