New character Laura leaked for Street Fighter 5

Posted by Ryan 'Tryken' Tullis • October 1, 2015 at 8:50 p.m. PDT

While sharing screenshots of the earlier announced Zangief, Famitsu has accidentally leaked screenshots of Laura, the third of the four new additions to the Street Fighter roster.

Based off the Brazil stage and fighting style, it's clear she's from Brazilian. Judging by the attacks, it appears she's more based around Brazilian jiu-jitsu than capoeira.

While some fans were expecting Blanka, Laura does seem to share a certain elemental similarity: electricity. In one image, an entire bolt of lightning comes crashing down on top of Ryu.

So far, Capcom has released no additional information concerning the leaked character. We will continue to update the story as new information becomes available.

Check out the screenshots below.

(copied from previous discussion in Zangief reveal thread)

So the roster according to the leak is supposed to end up being:
1. Alex ?
2. Birdie *
3. Cammy *
4. Chun-Li *
5. Dhalsim ?
6. Juri ?
7. Karin *
8. Ken *
9. Laura *
10. M.Bison *
11. Nash *
12. Necalli * (Boss?)
13. R.Mika *
14. Rashid *
15. Ryu *
16. Urien ?
17. Vega *
18. Zangief *
19. Zen ?

Assuming the final reveals are Dhalsim and Zen for the classic and new character, respectively... that leaves us with Juri, Alex and Urien who don't fit in the sixteen spot roster that Capcom quoted us. Perhaps Juri will be a pre-order bonus character and Alex and Urien will be the first DLC characters?

PS: Laura is hot as hell.

BYE KARIN.

HI LAURA.

I kid, I'll be playing both. And Vega. And Gief.

This roster is fine by me.

Much like Haley's Comet, Capcom adds one dark skinned female character to the Street Fighter universe every 17 years.

Welcome to the party, Laura. Elena has been waiting.

Well this alleviates my disappointment with the Gief announcement. I'm all for strong brown women. I hope her fighting style fits my playstyle. I'll be trying her out along with everyone else sans Gief.

Poor old Capcom and the Brazil Game Show.

So I guess Zen from India next per Bogard leak/plant.

And one more "known character you'd expect to see in a Street Fighter game".

Then lots and lots of DLC!

If she's based on Brazilian Ju Jit Su then that makes Sean even more of a shoto clone. I hate this roster.

Atleast she's hot.

Nah but she looks cool

Loving her design from a aesthetic point.Hints of electric charged special moves & maybe a command throw (if not,I'm fine with it).I need to see her in action more than anything.It seems I'm looking at my favorite newcomer of SFV.

#39
mechmaster90 said on October 1, 2015 at 9:05 p.m.

Another hybrid grappler ? Looks like she's getting command throws for sure.

Do you and #25 not know what brown skin looks like? I agree she's not "dark-skinned" but she's definitely not one week indoors from being a ghost and lighter skinned than Ryu. Wtf? She's light skinned, or as my folks would say, she's a yellow bone ;)

Oh man I didn't think about that. Now that would scar us for life and we would be too blind to see Laura lol

#58
LikeLike said on October 1, 2015 at 9:13 p.m.

I'm comparing her to Ryu in the screen shots she is lighter or at least the same shade... I don't know what to tell you. I must be contrast blind in that case.

StellarSTLR said on October 1, 2015 at 9:14 p.m.

Anyone ever wonder if Juri, Alex, and Urien will play a large part in the story mode and that's why they are leaving them for last?

OUUUU I hope Juri will be the new president of the Illuminati :)

#67
FightDirty said on October 1, 2015 at 9:17 p.m.

She's a nice looking Brasileira. So obvious that many smucks on this board have no clue about Brazil. The stage is really cool as well with the Escadaria Selarón (a famous stairway in Rio) on display. Can't wait to learn more about her fight style.

sleepyhead said on October 1, 2015 at 9:19 p.m.

Seems more like a tekken character to me, design-wise.

I don't know, but the new characters do not seem to have distinct characteristics that will "define" them. Unlike:

Chun-Li - Hair buns and spiked handcuffs
Cammy - Suit, hair, leg paints
Ryu - hachimaki (?)
Guile - broom hair

...and the list goes on. Even SF4 characters have more distinct designs in them, be it color, shape, symbol, etc.

I could not say the same thing for Necalli, Rashid, and Laura. Laura's design looks forgettable, honestly.

#73
Anabyss said on October 1, 2015 at 9:19 p.m.

It's agreed upon she's a redbone

Its set before SF3 so I doubt Juri surpassed Gil then he regained it.

#84
God_Demon said on October 1, 2015 at 9:23 p.m.

Necalli - Has EXTREMELY long braids, turns Super Saiyan 5
Rashid- Arabic, looks like Aladdin, uses wind
Laura- First Brazilian character, unique hairstyle, unique brazilian fighting style.

Seems memorable to me.

#85
Getdownbrown83 said on October 1, 2015 at 9:23 p.m.

Personally I will take these new characters over SF4 Any day, rufus, fuerte, Hakan(seriously someone explain his hair to me)viper is cool but looks KOF, Abel ain't too bad. Juri is cool like her but she looks KOF to. Gouken is a badass though. I think they are trying to play it safe and not be to outlandish.
