Mystery SSFIV Arcade Pic Intrigues Conspiracy Theorists!
Do you SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE what Dhalsim is cooking?
The pic above was tweeted by Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono some time ago, and while most have dismissed it as just a random screenshot of the upcoming Arcade Edition of Super Streetfighter IV, a couple of sites have latched onto it as a teaser for another new fighter added to SSFIV’s roster. If you squint and stare reeeeaaaalllly close-up like, you can see that the person being charbroiled in Yoga Flame looks like a buff, muscular dude. Fighter’s Generation has speculated that it may be Alex, the fatigues-clad grappler hero from SFIII. On the other hand, Hadoken.net is saying that it may be Urien, citing that the figure appears to be wearing a thong (or is that just an effect of the flame?).
Either people are really sharp-sighted, really imaginative, or really, really, really desperate for some new characters. Anyway… is it Alex? Is it Urien? Or is it just Zangief or Sagat? Or better yet, Elena after working out a lot? Only time, and Ono, will tell. Anyway, the better thing I’ve gathered from Ono-san’s recent tweets is that he’s finished with SSFIV Arcade, so now he’s 100 percent working on Streetfighter X Tekken. Well, it’s about time!
