So let's take one of the only female characters in the franchise who used to have their own formal outfit which made sense on context, and replace it with a fugly and sexist schoolgirl suit. Rolling Eyes Thanks, Capcom.

You think Ibuki's outfit is sexist compared to Mika and Laura? Besides, you could almost see her crotch with those thigh holes in the traditional outfit, lol.

Besides, she IS a schoolgirl. She goes to a ninja school. In SF3, she's a full-fledged ninja, and in SF4, she snuck out during training while she was wearing her ninja outfit. It kinda makes sense that normally she'd be wearing an outfit like this.

Someone actually finds complaint in her costume? Seriously?

She goes to high school and is probably classmates with Sakura and Makoto. This was already established. Like the previous poster suggested, her school girl outfit is probably the least sexist thing on there.

For what it's worth none of the outfits be it Ibuki's, R.Mika's, or Laura's are sexist. Fanservice prominent in certain respects yes but not sexist.

Minus the shinguards, armguards, and mask that completely clash with the uniform.

You know there's an alternate costume if you don't like that style...

Just because it's there doesn't mean you can ignore it.

An odd choice but makes sense considering her age. To top it off, Sakura also wears a school uniform. I don't think it blends well with her complex fighting style.

Yeah, the controls suck, the gameplay is bland, characters only have one super, but no. A motherfucking costume is what bothers you. I don't even.........

It's an option, one person yelling loud enough doesn't represent the majority as most don't care, they care about the character and how she fights.

Ibuki seems a bit odd with her school outfit, but it fits her. At least there's always her old ninja outfit, assuming that it's available and readily accessible.

It's nice to hear people complaining about her outfit and not her face like everyone else on Eventhubs. Seriously, it's fine. Be grateful that it isn't Ken's face beneath that mask.

Her gameplay is quite cool. I really like how fast she moves in those combos. I don't think I'd be able to play her at all if I had SFV but she seems rad. Now, I wait for Juri. Smile

I wonder if at least one of Ibuki's outfits reveals her face... Wink

I somewhat doubt that. I would think that she has round win poses that have her taking off the mask like in SFIV so maybe not. Then again, outfits with an uncovered face could be a thing unofficially. Ever seen those costume mods for the PC version? Cammy has a Spider-Gwen costume! It's super sick!
