Jiu-Jitsu Brazilian Laura confirmed for Street Fighter V

Capcom today officially confirmed Brazilian combatant Laura for Street Fighter V.

The character, who’s identity leaked last week, was confirmed at the Brasil Game Show. Figures, eh?

“Laura Matsuda is a Jiu-Jitsu specialist, a first for the Street Fighter series,” Capcom said of the fighter.

“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.”

Street Fighter V will be available in 2016 on Windows PC and PS4.
