Holy Makeover, Batman!
A New Challenger in Super Streetfighter IV? Not quite…
The pic above of what appears to be a rather cute martial arts girl was found at the Super Streetfighter IV Developers’ Blog, at first leading gamers to believe that this may be a new fighter set to debut in the upcoming pseudo sequel. The image is actually that of an earlier version of Abel, the bulky, blonde Frenchman and MMA-type grappler in Streetfighter IV. Apparently he was at one point intended to be a thin little girl (or a little boy?), demonstrating the ability of Judo to empower weaker characters. Interesting! I’d have to say that if I had a choice, I’d take the old, girl-version over the generic-looking bruiser Abel eventually turned out to be. But whatever… Where’s my Makoto and Ibuki? More on that as I get it. Super Streetfighter IV is set for release in Spring 2010.
