THE WORST STREET FIGHTER CHARACTER RETURNS


Not exactly. While its pretty obvious she's fanservice bait, she's definitely not the worse SF character.

Dan Hibiki however, IS THE WORST & the series joke character no matter what version he's in.

I'm fully intrigued that Mika's inclusion aligns with a roster leak from several months ago, one that also mentioned the oft-requested Karin Kanzuki, Street Fighter III protagonist Alex and, for some reason, Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact's Urien. I'd like to see Maki or Remy come back, but judging by the reaction to Rainbow Mika, my Street Fighter opinions aren't popular.


well that shouldnt be surprising.there is one thing some people will only care when it came to some fighting video games: FANSERVICE LADIES! and that have been the MO since SNK's Mai came around as well as the ladies of DOA. and nothing screams fanservice bait that the uber boobed Mika.

the chances of the other characters however,are highly unlikely cause if your including Alex & Urien, you have to include Gill as well. Karin however is 50/50 and there is a big fanbase for her too,so its likely for her to be the next character in the game.

Personally, i would rather have some of the popular characters from the EX series as the new characters for SFV

I agree lol. Dan's a parody of two characters (maybe three) that were and still are infinitely better than he is. Dan's chewed out gum that's lost its taste. The joke's not funny anymore. I don't wanna see him in SFV.

At least R.Mika's got new and interesting tools to play with. Plus STONE COLD STUNNER!!! Her trailer+Combofiend wrecking face with her makes me want to main her in this game. Nadeshiko won't be playable, I'm sure of that, but a blue moon might occur and they'll put Black Widow from Slam Masters in the game. Good luck with EX characters though, I don't think they're coming back.

I might get flamed for this haha, but I don't want any Final Fight characters in the game, Maki included, unless it's Dean/Lucia since they haven't been in a fighter before. I'm tired of seeing the usual FF suspects. Remy would be nice though but what I'm really interested in are more original newcomers.

well cammy is supsosed to be inspired by gally, so making her ugly does nto really work, I am more annoyed by the fact that they gave her breasts, since she has always been supossed to be relatively flat, the doll with big breasts is juli.

this almost ruined your post, it's almost as asking for spiderman or wolverine to be there.

Just sayin, Xenogears has a Perfect Works book out that detailed all the parts of the story that was not included in the game. It's part 5 of a 6 part giant story. Most of the other parts aren't very fleshed out in explanation but if you read about part one it's very similar to all of xenosaga. So it's a bit more than squinting and extrapolation especially when there is a cross over character or 2 and characters with the same family names.

Just sayin

Xenoblade Chronicles X: It's not uncommon to see games share some themes or symbolism between despite not all taking place in the same universe. Other than the fact they all share the same prefix, for example, they contain the theme of giant mecha being perceived as gods.

Street Fighter V:

Was it changed to appease Japanese fans who, according to Kotaku, disliked Cammy's initial look?


What was wrong with her initial look? The screenshot on the right makes her look like Terra from Teen Titans. It's awful. I'll never understand the tastes of these fans. It's like anime and game women have to be baby bottom smooth literally everywhere on their body to be considered appealing to the masses over there.

Ray Gigant: This game could have some appeal to kaiju fans. It definitely has that atmosphere and mood going for it.

Super Mario Maker: I'm sure there are going to be crazies who will whine that levels can't be made hard enough for them, even with how ridiculous you can set up enemy and trap placement.

Worst Street Fighter character? Todd is really going hard on fanboy mode right now, and I think you meant to say Joe from SF1.

Granted, Mika is pretty horrible in Alpha 3, but there are clearly enough changes in her style to the point where she's practically become a whole new character now. And a character with an assist character definitely brings some new dynamics to the SF franchise

I don't mind Cave coming to Steam, it's better than mobile. All they have to do optimize their offerings for average modern laptops and they'll rake in some serious sales.

So I suppose no one noticed the error/typo in the Next Week's releases for Project Mirai DX which has the date for May 26th, when it should be Sep. 8th. (Wow, what a time paradox, lol.)

I hope Rose and Karin return. I know Karin gets a lot of hate though. I don't have any problem with her.

With Karin, it's a matter of Capcom working out another permission deal with her creator from the old Sakura manga (I get the feeling her mangaka has turned them down nonstop since mid 2000). That's largely why she hasn't been seen in much of anything since Namco x Capcom and Capcom Fighting Evolution. As for the hate, we all know it's because of the snooty way she acts, but it's not like she's the first snarky ojou-sama to ever exist in fiction. Besides, her "succeed above all else" attitude has greatly lightened since her loss to Sakura, so she's a lot more likable in comparison to her earlier portrayal.

You might upbraid Nintendo for not offering Super Mario Maker decades ago.


Haha, I remember back in HS I had a Mario game on my TI-86 calculator that had a fairly robust level creator included. I would hide in the back row in history class making levels on it.

I never liked Rainbow Mika's design either. The fanservice elements don't bother me, it's just that she looks so strange and out of place. I just don't like her design in general.

Bearded Ryu looks like a lumberjack, kind of hilarious and awesome at the same time.
