Why the headset?
Also, I'm slightly irked that she didn't face off with Karin in that trailer, but I suspect that, beyond Blanka and Ryu, she'd be the next to appear in Sakura's story mode.
Relinking since because page
I've got no especially strong feelings for Sakura. My only experience with her was in Marvel vs Capcom 2, where she was one of my go-to fighters. In Alpha 3, I preferred Mika and Karin over her.
Besides showing off Sakura, it seems Capcom didn't want to repeat what they did for vanilla SFV by outright showing us who the next characters will be. No shadows to decipher here.
Returners are Blanka (looks the same, no surprise), Cody (now in a suit, which, along with his facial expression, reminds me of a One Piece character), and Sagat. New characters are a woman named Falke and a bearded man called G. I never played/saw the SFV story mode, so I don't know if the newcomers are from there or not, but they both look kinda bad-guyish.

Really hoping that the alpha 3 version is at least the PS 1/Dreamcast version with the extra
characters. Shame the PSP port (which is the best version) has never been ported at all despite having new features and characters.
@Hashil: I don't recall the Alhpa 3 Upper additions having Super SF 2 sprites. Or the MAX characters for that matter.
@Alpha VII: Yeah I'm with you there otherwise I'm gonna get reminded of how much of a disappointment Darkstalkers Resurrection was. Seriously Capcom we like having the Console version additions as an option, you're on PS 4, make it an option, its not a problem. Hell, Alhpa 3 Upper had an arcade release so there's no excuse.
I thought Dee Jay's sprite was reused. It certainly looks like his Street Fighter II: New Challengers sprite◊.
But yeah I really hope the Alpha 3 included is MAX. I really like Maki, Yun, Eagle and Ingrid.

I heard that the first Street Fighter sucked rather bad. Now I can experience that for myself!
So I'm currently watching the Street Fighter movie.
Having a debate with someone over which was better: this movie, or the first Mortal Kombat movie.
I'm pretty sure it was the latter, even if neither have aged particularly well.
So Joaquim Dos Santos (Justice League Unlimited, Legend of Korra, Voltron: Legendary Defender) was working on a Street Fighter TV series at one point. I hope it eventually happens one day. Here's some art he did.
What would you prefer, a bad movie that has an amazing Ham and Cheese performance, or a decent movie that is essentially a remake of one of the greatest martial arts films ever?
The former has Raul Julia, and the problem with the latter is none of the heroes are in the same hemisphere as Bruce Lee.

Raul Julia was great. He carried that movie on his back without a doubt.
But Mortal Kombat really is better.
Edit: Wow. Chun Li's legs don't look like as wide as door frames. That's so weird.

Double post and bump for a random question:
What kind of martial arts does Chun Li use?
Mostly Chinese martial arts, though Japanese sources we're not allowed to be shown and given proper translations point to Chun Li adding Karate and Capoeira.
So she uses a combination of unspecified chinese martial arts along with Karate and Capoeria then?
Interesting. Is she one of the few characters who don't have a named style?
TBH I find it more itneresting when characters mix styles as opposed to just using one.
Plus it seems more believable and even sensible since a lot of fighters IRL do that.
I think it depends. Some martial arts have a really strong culture all their own that can help sell a character, while others are a little more to the point and strictly functional.
As a huge Capoiera nut I love seeing characters that focus on it, but at the end of the day I suppose the most important part is how they come together over all and if their moves work well together.
Have you ever seen the old Flash fighting game Capoiera Fighter?
It's actually pretty well made, enough that I would've loved to have seen it get picked up and refined by a major studio.
Hell yeah. I played that a lot in school back in the day. It was kinda janky, but I was always liked that it showed that Capoeira was diverse enough to carry an entire fighting game, even if it cheated and a had a couple of other styles as secret characters.
Today in weird crossovers.
The logic behind it is probably fascinating, but... Yeah, this is madness.
Whether is of the good one is a good subject of debate.
honestly, what do you expect about G(the character to be added to Street Fighter V after Cody)?
A lot of ham, basically, with how he looks. Hopefully they'll learn about their mistakes with Falke and he is well animated. So, based on appearance, what kind of playstyle do you think he'll have?
I know, double post.
But I wanted to ask if anyone saw Assassin's Fist or the sequel it had (Resurrection), and what you thought about it.
I saw Assassin's Fist.
Assassin's Fist was that web series right? Yeah I saw it. I actually kinda liked it too, it made for a nice amount of small character stories and it felt more like Street Fighter than most other media things they tried to put out.
Street Fighter's Sagat is actually based on a real Muay Thai champion who is still alive today
