5th Ultra Street Fighter 4 character is female, says Ono - final fighter is not Retsu

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • December 14, 2013 at 5:45 p.m. PST
5th Ultra Street Fighter 4 character is female, says Ono - final fighter is not Retsu During the Capcom Cup stream, Capcom's own Yoshinori Ono jumped on staged to deliver a message to everyone viewing. Speaking as an introduction to the Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 portion of the event, Ono made sure to thank all of the players, sponsors, viewers, and attendees.

Although we did not find out who the 5th Ultra Street Fighter 4 character is, Ono, in classic fashion, dropped a couple of hints.

The Capcom representative put a few suspicions to rest by stating that this mystery fighter is not Marvel vs. Capcom 3's Haggar, not Street Fighter Alpha 3's R. Mika, and not Street Fighter 1's Retsu.

Ono did confirm, however, that the final addition to the Ultra Street Fighter 4 roster will be a female. This was the only bit of information given to the public, but now that we know the gender, who do you think the last USF4 character will be?

Let us know in the comments below.

The chances of it being a doll are looking more likly. :( I was hoping for Retsu but Karin would be a nice surprise (even though she's ruled out).

It might just be like the rumor says, a doll. The only new character from Street Fighter IV I like is Juri. Her design is awesome, the rest I can't stand.

I'm anxious to see how this character looks. I was hoping for King Cobra, but he will never be in a game. He is locked away with the other Street Fighter rejects.

Goukens daughter. Does Ingrid count if it was only SFA3 Max? (and fighting evolution if that counts)

So it's not Garuda, Retsu, Urien, Alex, Kairi, Shadow Geist, Birdie, Sodom, Charlie or the blonde guy from SFII intro? =(

Hype = gone

LeonHartEX said on December 14, 2013 at 5:52 p.m.

The only other girl from the Street Fighter universe that hasn't been in a SF game I can think of is Lucia...and we haven't seen her since Final Fight 3...which was a very, very long time ago lol

Guess we still have to wait and see.

#13
TrollEmFADCly said on December 14, 2013 at 5:53 p.m.

Lucia from Final Fight 3 confirmed.

#14
Zanpakto said on December 14, 2013 at 5:53 p.m.

Please let it be Karin or Ingrid!

#15
NyuBomber said on December 14, 2013 at 5:53 p.m.

Ingrid counts. SFA3 Max was just as much a Street Fighter as regular SFA3, no matter the console.

5th character is Blanka's Mom.

#16
HmpLghtng said on December 14, 2013 at 5:53 p.m.

Ingrid maybe?

Noembelu? If its Noembelu I'll be satisfied.

#20
trog said on December 14, 2013 at 5:54 p.m.

Why did he say it isn't R.Mika? We already knew that. Why didn't he rule out some other Alpha female characters?
Unless...

macbellito said on December 14, 2013 at 5:55 p.m.

Nili - Remember Me

#22
Sage_Liebert said on December 14, 2013 at 5:56 p.m.

I just hope she isn't the overly girly type. I would like her to be tough to the bone with a hardcore fighting style. Someone like Jam (guilty gear) Vanessa (virtua fighter) Akira (rival schools)

Please dont be some dumb airhead bimbo

#23
ArcadeRobot said on December 14, 2013 at 5:56 p.m.

I'm gonna say it's Nilin from Remember Me!! She fits all the criteria ;]

#24
YoraiDragon said on December 14, 2013 at 5:57 p.m.

I already know and said for the longest, it's Ojou-San guys. We just need to see how she plays. What if she's the first char in sf that use a sword? Or a sheath ;). Yorai Dragon's too sly.

#25
Darklurkr23 said on December 14, 2013 at 6 p.m.

COME ON COLE IN A WIG

#26

Sawada and Sodom already used swords.

#27
MaysTheCraze said on December 14, 2013 at 6:02 p.m.

Juli? She was in Street Fighter Alpha 3.

#28
macbellito said on December 14, 2013 at 6:02 p.m.

Also worth remembering that the Ono helped in the production of the game Remember Me

#29
MaysTheCraze said on December 14, 2013 at 6:04 p.m.

I wish it was one of them too, but they've already been in a fighting game before.

#30
ShadowGeno said on December 14, 2013 at 6:04 p.m.

It´s Karin. End of discussion.

#31
MaysTheCraze said on December 14, 2013 at 6:04 p.m.

Oh, I'd be cool with this. She seems like she'd fit well in Street Fighter.

#32
jme said on December 14, 2013 at 6:05 p.m.

It's Yanyu, the Bison Doll with the staff.

Hugo
Yanyu
Poison
Elena
Rolento
HYPER

Thank me later EH.

#33
Sobhatman said on December 14, 2013 at 6:05 p.m.

It's clearly Black Widow, guys.

Yes, this is a joke. Like hell they'd put a character from Slammasters anywhere.

Decapre? hnnngg

#35
ChrisVega said on December 14, 2013 at 6:11 p.m.

The 5th character is lady gaga. Ultra 1 will be bad romance and ultra 2 will be monsters ball

#36
lh said on December 14, 2013 at 6:12 p.m.

Maybe it gonna be a character similar to Hokuto from SF EX, we haven't had anything like that since.

#37
Typhoontimmy said on December 14, 2013 at 6:12 p.m.

Olivia from GODHAND? With a bunny girl alternate costume I hope...

#38

Eliza Masters it was already known but you guys try to be ignorant.

#39
trog said on December 14, 2013 at 6:16 p.m.

Decapre would be a waste. It's just an Evil Cammy, with a mask and a mean attitude. ¬¬

#40
Galaxy said on December 14, 2013 at 6:16 p.m.

I don't know why people were so fixated one it being Retsu,personally I'm glad that it's not him, he was far too much of a predictable choice for me. I know there's talk of it being one of Bison's dolls, but personally I don't know. The thing that keeps throwing me is how they said that they thought this character would be a good fit for the SF universe, anybody that's a doll is technically already in the SF universe; it's that reason that I have some doubt that it's a doll.

#41
MaysTheCraze said on December 14, 2013 at 6:17 p.m.

Can't tell if srs...

#42
mario3d said on December 14, 2013 at 6:18 p.m.

Ojon Chan/Sayaka, probably, its a good choice abestados

Makes so much sense now i think about it. :p

GodPride said on December 14, 2013 at 6:19 p.m.

Karin maybe. She was very popular in the Capcom Japanese poll. Or it could be the rumored Bison Doll.

#45

Too bad it's capcom. Girly confirmed

This isn't HYPER SF4, so drop the Yanyu ****. God.

#47
dopefresh said on December 14, 2013 at 6:25 p.m.

its elenas friend from end of sf3

#48
ArcadeRobot said on December 14, 2013 at 6:25 p.m.

Yeah, they're prolly going the same route as SFxTK whereas Cole was never in any fg and was brought in from Capcom's INFAMOUS & now it'll be the same case with taking Nilin from Capcom's RM to include her as the 5th character in USFIV XD

#49
Sage_Liebert said on December 14, 2013 at 6:26 p.m.

Exactly, a good fit implies someone outside the sf universe with the same qualities and similar design to fit inside the sf universe.

They said it's a character they've been wanting to put in for a while, so it most likely isn't a recently created character like the female from remember me. Now we have to think what female character outside of the sf universe that would fit and never been playable in a fighting game.

I wouldn't mind Ken's girl being the 5th character.

#53
LeonX said on December 14, 2013 at 6:32 p.m.

Ingrid

#54
Galaxy said on December 14, 2013 at 6:33 p.m.

I'm pretty sure they already came out and said that it's not going to be her when they said Asura was out of the question.

#55
Calypso said on December 14, 2013 at 6:34 p.m.

Pretty sure Eliza is pregnant during the story of SF IV.

Edit: Yep, she is most definitely pregnant during that time, she even gives birth in Ken`s ending

#56
danny2times said on December 14, 2013 at 6:35 p.m.

So Jason24cf is a liar, this is now confirmed. First he said it's a female after that picture of the silhouette was leaked. Then said it may be retsu as he submitted that old article that really was funny. The last bit of proof to his desperate need for lime light is his comment with the cryptic numbers he posted as a response in that other comment thread.

Give it up and admit your faults Jason, we'll forgive you.....

Bummed its a female, I was hoping for a real mean looking brawler, or a character from someone's past looking for revenge. A kid who grew up training to destroy say bison for destroying his village or something like that.

Better be cool and not a doll!

Mind Blown.

#59
Galaxy said on December 14, 2013 at 6:41 p.m.

Right, I mean it's gotta be someone from another Capcom universe, because if it were a non-playable SF character a lot of their previous statements will have been very misleading at the very least.

#60
sarvets said on December 14, 2013 at 6:41 p.m.

its ono in a skirt

#61
Aluppoj said on December 14, 2013 at 6:42 p.m.

Roxy or Evil Sakura.

You heard it here;)

#62
ZeDudd said on December 14, 2013 at 6:49 p.m.

Uhn...
They all were playable once, and Ono said the new character never was playable in any fighting game before.
So ALL of those were already ruled out from the beginning, dude.

...well, except for that blonde guy from the SFII intro. XD

#63
ArcadeRobot said on December 14, 2013 at 6:50 p.m.

If they stick with the Final Fight theme it could very well be Lucia <3 http://cantran.hubpages.com/hub/Histo...

#64
bagel_bytez said on December 14, 2013 at 6:51 p.m.

They should make doll fighter. Tht would be dope.

Psh, all the followers. I called Lucia first :D

Nilin Remember Me

#69
RoboBoomByYahh said on December 14, 2013 at 6:59 p.m.

I hope it's the Dolls, and instead of different colors it's one of the dolls.

#70
bagel_bytez said on December 14, 2013 at 7:04 p.m.

Could be
Area
Celia
Eliza
Fuka
Hokuto
Lord grammaticus
Lucinda
Maki
Sarai
Sharon
Or any of te dolls :)

#71
HooliganComboFTW said on December 14, 2013 at 7:05 p.m.

Roxy confirmed.
Would not put it past Capcom to make a Poison palette swap as the new character since she fits all the hints.

#72
Dravidian said on December 14, 2013 at 7:06 p.m.

Hakan's wife.....

#73

Why Ingrid? She was pretty bad, Karin however I can get behind she was pretty cool to play as and had awesome music.

#76
RealPrismsword said on December 14, 2013 at 7:14 p.m.

Come on guys, it's obviously Miketta Rosette.

A part of me is almost hoping for a heavy hitting woman who doesn't have health lower than 1000 for once.

BMTrajan said on December 14, 2013 at 7:20 p.m.

Glad its not r mika or retsu, I want something new

#81
PikminExpert said on December 14, 2013 at 7:23 p.m.

If the new character was a Doll, wouldn't that just make them something like a Cammy clone, since that was the case with Juli and Juni is Alpha 3?

#82
kleylson said on December 14, 2013 at 7:26 p.m.

These characters[Like Eliza, Noembelu, ETC..] already have a name. That old leaked information showed about: the name of the new fighter was being decided by Capcom staff, including an internal competition had been done.

Based on that then we can say that the Dolls, Eliza, any female character from Final Fight, and others who have participated even indirectly the Universe Street Fighter / Final Fight are deconfirmed.

And probably the only female character that has NO name, in the universe of Street Fighter or Final Fight (At least as far as I can remember), is in fact the lost daughter of Gouken.

And I heard an interesting and cool rumor, that character will determine the future of Chun-Li as a fighter, and a way to quit doing the fights, since there is no more reason to keep fighting. It would be Chun-Li's last rival.

It's that girl from remember me.

#87
Sage_Liebert said on December 14, 2013 at 7:34 p.m.

That's the best guess. Lucia is a perfect fit in sf universe justlikethe other final fight characters. She's hardcore to so i'm down for it.

BlackOnyxThunder said on December 14, 2013 at 8:19 p.m.

Woah! This is big... it's either one of Bison's (dictator) dolls or its a friend of Sakura just calling it out now...

#97
Xykes said on December 14, 2013 at 8:24 p.m.

Type: "Ojousan Street Fighter" into google. That'll get you started.

#98
oghaggard said on December 14, 2013 at 8:29 p.m.

It was officially stated by Capcom of Japan back in the SF2 days. It's since been forgotten with time, since Gouken himself took another two decades to show up as a playable character... so it's kind of in limbo as to whether Capcom still recognizes her existence or has retconned her out of the SF universe...

#99
courte said on December 14, 2013 at 8:33 p.m.

there are quite a few girls in street fighter who've never been playable. could be hakan's wife, this gouken's daughter everyone keeps talking about, sakura's friend, any of the dolls really...

or the one person it really is LUCIA FROM FINAL FIGHT With a Sodom ALTERNATE
