This has been a somewhat odd week for Street Fighter V as the strategic reveal of new characters was upset by the accidental reveal of a new fighter, Laura, by Famitsu almost a week ago while sharing Zangief screenshots. She seemed to be a Brazilian fighter that utilized electricity and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, but that was all that could be ascertained from the screenshots.
Now Laura has been officially revealed with a gameplay trailer shown below. She is a brand new character and is confirmed to be a Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu master. She seems very similar to Blanka in many respects, which isn’t a bad thing.
As well, there are various screenshots from the Famitsu reveal that will be shared below.
