She’s BAAAACK….. Karin Kanzaki, heiress to the Kanzaki Financial Empire and rival eternal to Sakura Kasugano has just been revealed at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. She looks mainly like she did way back in her debut in Streetfighter Alpha 3- those distinct blonde hair curls, the red and black outfit- and that laugh. THAT LAUGH.
Gotta be honest, not really a Karin fan, not one of those who asked for her back, but she looks pretty cool and her fighting style is very distinct and interesting. Her design also looks quite good (even if her face is basically Cammy with an attitude).
Just have to point out- at this point, we have three blonde girls in the game. How about some brunette or Asian love, Capcom? I’m expecting that since Karin is in, Sakura can’t be far behind (or she’ll eventually be one of the fighters added via post-launch DLC). I’m still hoping we see Juri back (she was part of the leaked roster that included Rashid). Not sure if the rumors that there may be one or two more reveals before TGS is over… but I guess we’ll see over the weekend.
For now though, check out Ojoh-sama in action. You wanted her, you got her.
