Capcom reportedly gives nice shout outs to the top ranked regional players in Street Fighter 5 from Dan's sister

Back in September, Capcom updated Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition to include the new Darkstalkers and Halloween costumes plus added the new Dojo mode, but there was also a change that many players likely never noticed or paid attention to.

Street Fighter 5's store also saw an update where Dan Hibiki's sister, Yuriko, was added as the digital storekeeper and would suggest items to players based on popularity and their previous purchases with unique dialogue. The younger Hibiki appears to have even more to say now.

Shazzy, the top ranked player in North America for SF5, shared a screenshot from the game which appears to show Yuriko asking the player if they know who the top ranked player in the region is followed by her telling them that it's Shazzy who likes to play Cody.

The top ranked Cody player in the world currently sits with over 300,000 League Points for the online mode and holds the fifth highest LP total in the world behind other online warriors like Japan's number one ranked Trashbox.

This text will likely change depending on what region players live in, but it's a nice little feature that gives a shout out to some of the best players in the world that we often times don't get to see much of in offline events.

You can check out the aforementioned screenshot below of Yuriko giving props to Shazzy along with the current top 10 ranked players in the world. For those who wish to see the Warlord Cody in action, we've included an online match compilation from The Beast after the jump as well.
