Here is a pic of the latest and newest member of the King of Fighters...wait, I mean Street Fighter family. That's right, this character looks like it belongs on a KOF game! Don't get me wrong, I really like KOF games, the thing is that there is Street Fighter and then there is KOF, and there there is Mortal Kombat etc.... As of right now this character doesn't seem to fit! There are certain things that make a great Street Fighter character that are not present in this design.
These are the following things that should be evident in a Street Fighter character:
-The character should be representative of a Nation or Country, or at least have some hints of where they came from. The original 12 characters were iconic and their country of origin could be determined or guessed at by a glance at their design.
-A martial Art or fighting style should be a part of their concept and easy to recognize, i.e. the Karate Master from Japan, the Muai Thai fighter from Thailand, the Kung Fu expert from China, the Apache fighter from Mexico.......wait forget about that last one....anyways you get the point.
So far, this character does not exhibit any of these recognizable traits. All I know is that her name is Crimsom Viper and she is "a female detective, who is speedy and have hidden weapons all over her body". I hope that they come up with better charcters in the future but I will wait and pass final judgement when I can see the final version of the character moving in the game.
