Additional SFIV Updates for Week of February 11

By on

As TD metioned, Capcom showed us Valentine’s Day love, by revealing a new character, Abel. At first glance, it appears he bears the colors of France (blue, white, and red) and most likely practices the French martial art form of Savate. You heard it here first. In the original Street Fighter 2, Vega was also said to have Savate influences.

The other new character which was revealed was Crimson Viper. Only artwork has been revealed, but she has long, braided pink hair, wears a suit, and she is pulling on some leather gloves. Maybe she’s Yakuza? That’s my speculation.

As far as the other characters go, the original eight World Warriors have been confirmed through screenshots and artwork: Ryu, Ken, Blanka, Dhalsim, E. Honda, Guile, Zangief, and Chun Li. Producer Yoshinori Ono is trying to get all the characters from Turbo in this edition.
