Not Blanka! SFV’s Brazilian entry is nevertheless just as shoking.
Just as the first images of the latest Streetfighter V all-new character were leaked online, the trailer for Laura’s reveal was apparently also posted a bit too early- by none other than Sony, at that.
Instead of the usual Capoeira (although she does seem to have some attacks from that style), Laura’s fighting arts are based on Brazilian Ju Juitsu- which means arm locks, ground grapples and interlocking bodies… hmmm. She also apparently has some sort of slow-moving projectile and electricity spicing up her moves. Is she related to Blanka?
While I certainly enjoy the fan service of such a looker of a fighter, I wish her design was a bit more- exciting. Her outfit is a bit plain, though I guess in terms of fighting game outfits its probably one of the most realistic.
Laura should be officially unveiled today or tomorrow by Yoshinori Ono at the Brazil Game Show- hopefully after then we’ll get more info and media on this lovely grappler.
