The Inevitable Street Fighter V Story Thread: ARCADE EDITION!

Someone needs to read a copy of the Ryu Final manga.

Fixed the spelling error

Finally. I’m guessing Dean will be next

I guess the profiles will be released one hour earlier because Japan doesn’t have to deal with daylight savings.

Edit: go to the next page for an even better translation :smiley:

Lucia

A brilliant detective who ensures Metro City’s security.
With her long legs, she obviously has powerful kicks.
She burns down criminals with her Fire Spinner¹!

Name: Lucia
Height: 172 cm
Weight: 52 kg
Blood type: B
Birthday: April, 1
Home Country: USA
Favorite things: Cup Noodles
Dislikes: Cooking

An investigator who works for the Special Criminal Investigation Unit of Metro City’s police.
Fights with techniques of self-defense and a personal take on Kung-fu.
Specialized in attacks with her baton.
She’s literally hopeless at houseworks and cooking,
and relies on her favourite Vietnamese restaurant for her meals,
or just goes with her cup noodles.

¹ Her jumping qcf + attack kick. Normally unimaginatively translated as simply “Fire Kick”.

Dean tomorrow then maybe kyle shudder

Legitimize Kyle Travers whoo hoo

D’OH, I stole @bakfromon’s turn. Sorry. :disappointed:

No biggie as long as I can compare and contrast. :peace:

For some reason I sang your sentence as if it were the Duck Tales’s theme.
I must stop watching anime and cartoons in general, I know.

Dude, never stop watching anime and cartoons it literally keeps the mind young. You don’t wanna be that old guy screaming at kids to stay off your lawn.

I like Kyle. :frowning:

I’m waaay more a Capcom guy, but Lucia is so much poor peoples Blue Mary

Has anyone compiled the fighter data from the Lair of the Four Kings stage? Off the top of my head Alex is nicknamed Hyper Bomber and Karin princess. It also displays their height and weight.

Rashid is of unknown origin. Fucking pussies.

I think I saw a compilation screenshot album on r/StreetFighter

That’s okay. Blue Mary was a poor man’s Android 18.

It actually lists the following:

Fighter’s Name

Notables:

  • Still loving how they have Chun-Li’s weight listed as “secret”. Still continues to be one of the great mysteries of Street Fighter
  • Interesting how FANG’s origin country is unknown. I would assume that he came from China, like Chun-Li.
  • For Karin, I’m surprised how her memo labeled her as “princess”. I thought she was running the whole Kanzuki estate and corporation. Wouldn’t that make her the queen?
  • Bison’s memo is “The Boss”… I think that’s undermining him a little. I think “GOD” would be more appropriate. Am I right @Daemos ?
  • Interesting how both Necalli’s origin AND gender is labled “unknown”.
  • Rashid is the “wanabe hero”? Wasn’t he the guy who ended up saving all of everyone’s asses in ASF?

To me was this dude to push Sagat to second tier nemesis

But the cool thing is that is Ryu to be Sagat’s nemesis, not the contrary… so Ryu can keep go for new challenges/rivals, but for Sagat it stay.
If anything see Ryu keep improve make it even more intense for Sagat, as current Ryu is way stronger than the one that defeated him.
Wich imho is the best part of themsaying that Sagat is missing in S1 because he’s doing a special/secret training… he forced to improve to not be left behind.
He will never be THE Boss again, but he will ever be a worthy challenge

Think this dude

Also i still think Sagat is “able” (not as favourite, but as possible for him) to defeat Ryu in a good day.

Even current SFV Ryu who’s still struggling with his spiritual bullshit was defeated by Ken, and imho Sagat > Ken

For how i see it that day Sagat will have gave him that treatment
