The Inevitable Street Fighter V Story Thread: ARCADE EDITION!


How about related?

Capcom’s legitimate excuse not to give Menat her home stage: due to state religion and laws, Egypt would put her ass in jail for practicing magic the moment she sets foot there.

Maggio got 99 flaws, but being french is’nt one =)

Give me SFV concept, is perfect for her

Maybe after i will color it

Or give me this

Ok, so we’re finally arrived to FF2 goons…


She can kill her enemies with her agility
and her proficiency with the knife!
It seems her knife attacks pattern is so irregular
that it’s extremely hard to dodge.

Name: Eliza
Height: 160cm
Weight: 48kg
Blood type: A
Birthday: August, 5¹
Country of Origin: USA
Favorite things: NWOBHM
Dislikes: Dirty people

She’s fickle and prone to pursue every new fad.
Had some experience in a band,
when she wanted to become a vocalist
but soon she got tired and quit.
It seems she has a twin brother named Robert.

She’s currently searching for a lover!

¹ Suspiciously identical to Maggio… Someone got the dates mixed up, I believe.

Thanks for those answers,@MattMoylan. We really appreciate all the translations you guys have provided.

No offence, but what are you guys talking about? Rose has always been from Genoa. It’s literally mentioned back in SFA1. Her SFA2 stage is the actual port of Genoa. It actually has a giant pirate ship in it. Her SFA3 stage is her home, and probably Genoa, too. I don’t know where you guys are getting this Venice shit from.

The only reason you could think that is because Joseph met Lisa Lisa in Venice. But Rose is an Expy, of Lisa Lisa, not a fucking clone.

Just a thought: Maggio is going through/has gone through puberty while living with two attractive psychics around him. Not only are his hormones raging all the time, they likely know about it…

Self quote to shw this little gif

Notice that the crystal sphere start to slowly fall as soon the Soul Power (visible as azure fire) get weaker/“turned off”, great touch

Another cool touch here

She seem like she’s holding/lifting the opponent, while of course will be impossible for her
The ball is holding mid-air the enemy, and she’s trying to charge it with enough SP to launch him away.
Yet seem to still not have a Rose level of control, so you see that at begin part of the weight (like low gravity?) still reach her, making her legs shaking

PS: SFV got GOAT animations, 3d modellers have high and lows but the animators are great and getting even better in S2

None taken. :slight_smile:

Because we simply know both Genoa and Venice, and therefore know that Genoa has no canals nor gondolas.

This is not Genoa, no matter how much Capcom tries to let us believe it. Unless they clarify that the Genoa of SF world IS Venice, of course.
The only stage that could be actually in Genoa is her SFZ3 stage, being an interior of her mansion.
Her SFZ1 stage was the Colosseum in Rome,

A clear reference to Bruce Lee’s fight against Chuck Norris in Way of the Dragon. So no actual Genoa was ever seen in Rose’s stages…

EDIT: oh, I almost forgot. Even her discarded SFV stage was going to still be in Venice:

I agree, which is even more baffling that they did that hideous Cammy air throw.
Wouldnt be surprised if Capcom forced them to rush those new moves out.

There are gondolas in her Alpha 2 stage, you don’t really see those anywhere else outside of Venice. I thought that her Alpha 3 stage (her Genoan palace) had Venetian imagery too, but now that I’ve checked again you can actually only see the palace and a few buildings in the distance. I swore that there was water on the far right of that stage but I guess I was wrong.

FYI just because a character is from a particular city doesnt mean the stage needs to be from there. Cammy was found outside delta red which is probably in London but her SSF2 stage is in Scotland.

Lol the twin brother named Robert, that was her male version counterpart when they changed her gender for the American version of Final Fight 2.


Gondole type boats (venetian symbol)

The venetian palina

Not visible in the pic, but stage have three-heads lamps


In Genova defense, on he left there’s this statue of Cristoforo Colombo

So yes not only they definitely mixed up the two cities, but is visually more Venice than Genoa
Not that i got "offended"by mixed sources, still one of my fav SF stages

I want dat SFV Venice concept though

That’s correct.
Too bad Capcom felt the need to be specific and explicitly said in SFZ2 that Rose’s stage was Genoa’s port.
The Western SFA2 version only said “Italy”,

but the Japanese one always specified the place.

And it’s written “Genova’s harbour”.
Thus, Capcom’s version of the facts is that Rose’s SFZ2 stage is in Genoa; which is patently false. At least they correctly placed Genoa on the map…

More clear the sphere is solid

Lol at getting Vega’s stage as official art

*Menat is an apprentice of a famous Fortune teller that lives in Italy. The techniques she was taught revolve around her crystal sphere, which she controls with her soul power. This power lets her extend the base of her attacks, giving her a fortunate advantage at longer ranges. She is also able to send it out at the opponent to disrupt attacks, where she can later call it back. While the crystal sphere is out, she can cancel any normal attack and her V-Skill into Soul Sphere: Ankh, calling the crystal ball back to her, greatly increasing her combo potential. *


Those crystals look flat as fuck ingame without the distortion.

I bet Menat’s quote to Nash is something along the lines of, “I can’t read your future”.
