We know already that the Ultra update for Street Fighter 4 will feature five new characters: Hugo, Poison, Rolento, Elena, plus a mystery fighter.
So the question is now who this last mysterious person might be. Specifically, which Street Fighter installment he or she might possibly hail from. There's also the chance that said mystery person may originate from another franchise entirely. After all, three of the four already mentioned are originally from Final Fight.
Capcom’s senior product manager Matt Dahlgren was recently interviewed by The Jace Hall Show, and discussed a number of things related to the update.
The as of yet unidentified character was only lightly toughed upon, though a vital clue was shared. As it turns out, this person is indeed new to the whole punching and kicking thing. Not only has the individual never been in a Street Fighter game, but this “will be the first time he (or she) makes their fighting game debut.”
This is good news or those who enjoy a surprise, and especially diehard fans of Capcom who love seeing a familiar face be reborn again. But it's bad news for fans of certain characters of are indeed versed in the ways of street fighting; one hopeful contender for many was Haggar from Final Fight, but that's no longer the case.
At least one can still enjoy him in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.
