Capcom reveals Decapre as fifth Ultra Street Fighter 4 newcomer


Capcom has been hinting at who the fifth and final new character for Ultra Street Fighter IV will be for quite some time. And just recently they announced who it will be. The leader of the Shadaloo, M. Bison, is known to have many Dolls, one of which is Cammy. Meet Decapre, who is a new character while… not being new. She isn’t an entirely new character as she is an NPC in Street Fighter Alpha 3, (which is shown in the intro to the video above) but she is new as a playable character.

Bearing a giant burn mark located on her face, she is a charge character who uses scramble moves and psycho-powered attacks. She may look like “Evil Cammy” but her playstyle is very different from that as shown in the video above. I look forward to seeing her in action during the upcoming fighting game tournaments.

The other four characters who will be given the Street Fighter IV treatment will be Hugo, Rolento, Elena, and Poison. This upgrade will also include six new battle environments and bring the final roster count to 44 characters, all rebalanced to provide what Capcom is calling the “most balanced Street Figher ever.”

Ultra Street Fighter IV is set to be available for digital upgrades for PS3 and Xbox 360 in early June for $14.99. PC bundles and upgrades will be available for $29.99 and $14.99 respectively in August alongside retail versions of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game for $39.99. Players who purchase the retail or full digital bundles of the game will receive all previously released costumes for the series which clocks in at about a $40 value according to Capcom.
