Brazilian grappler Laura joins the fight in new Street Fighter V screens and trailer
Capcom has revealed yet another character for Street Fighter V introducing the Brazlian femme fatale, Laura.
Joining the series from her homeland in Brazil, Laura Matsuda is a Jiu-Jitsu specialist, a first for the Street Fighter series. Continuing the tradition of the famed Matsuda fighting style, Laura is constantly looking for strong opponents around the world to defeat, in an effort to spread the Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu’s name and prestige. Laura’s methodical grapple technique comes equipped with a stunning “Thunder Clap” projectile that zaps opponents and leaves them questioning if they should get in close, or keep their distance. By activating her “Spark Show” state, Laura’s projectiles fly further and her attacks and grabs have increased stun damage. Using a variety of quick moving attacks and effective command grabs, Laura will become a favorite for players who enjoy “up close and personal” mind games.
Check out Laura’s reveal trailer below:
Capcom also revealed a slew of new screens showcasing the South American World Warrior in action, which you can find below.
Street Fighter V releases next spring for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
