off, we're back from vacation! So thanks for your patience on this past
week's fighting game news.)
Capcom's CFN Portal has posted the latest batch of
SFV concept artwork, providing a closer look at some lesser known
characters in the Street Fighter universe. Included are wrestlers
from the Iwashi Ga Hama Japan Women's pro-wrestling division, along with
Guile's boss (Byron Taylor) and a Shadaloo cyborg.
Let's begin with Guile's boss (who is seen in the background of Guile's SFV
stage). His name is Byron Taylor and he's a General in the Air Force. He
hates Shadaloo, is an expert on Commando Sambo, puts his work before
anything else, and is originally from Texas.
Below, meet some female
wrestlers from the Iwashi Ga Hama Japan Women's pro-wrestling division.
You can check out each character's bio at CFN
Portal. Even though it's written in Japanese, you can find out some
extra details on these wrestlers using Google translate.
Last but not least, here's a
Shadaloo cyborg who has the ability to scan other fighters and copy their
moves (similar to the cyborgs from SF2: The Animated Movie).
Will any of these characters
make it to the SFV roster down the road? That is currently unknown,
but you never know. Stay tuned.
A few days after
this article was posted, Capcom's CFN Portal released some additional concept
artwork for Guy, Maki & Yun, along with "Zombie"
costumes and unused character designs.
