Street Fighter V Heads To Brazil; Brazilian Character Teased

Street Fighter V goes to South America! Yoshinori Ono, producer of Street Fighter, has just revealed the new Brazilian stage in a recorded message for the WB Games Summit. We get a sneak peek at the stage while Chun Li and Ryu beat the living daylights out of each other.

The stage features the vibrantly-colored streets of a city in Brazil, densely populated with buildings on the side. In the background is a hill with what appears to be a trophy. Brazil is home not only to the biologically-diverse Amazon rainforest, but also to a number of fighters in the Street Fighter franchise.

Towards the end of the video, we get Yoshinori Ono starts teasing an upcoming character announcement that has something to do with Brazil. We know he’s in a costume that blatantly points toward a Blanka reveal, but we can’t eliminate the possibility of it being Street Fighter III’s Sean, or even Oro, who trained in Brazil. Heck, he could even be teasing a completely new character. Guess we’ll have to wait for the announcement at the Brazil Game Show this coming October 8-12.

If you’d like to check out how Street Fighter V is doing so far, they’re touring the US via Six Flags theme parks. Street Fighter V is scheduled for a Spring 2016 launch.
