The fifth and final new character for Ultra Street Fighter 4 is Decapre, as revealed by Capcom at a special exhibition event at the end of Final Round XVII in Atlanta, GA. The reveal comes after months of teases and hints.
So who is Decapre? She's one of M. Bison's dolls, and as such, she is a clone of Cammy (which explains the similarity in her appearance). While she's been featured in other Street Fighter media, she's never been a playable until now. But just like Oni, and Evil Ryu before her, her similarities to her forebearers end once you dig past the surface. With two highly useful ultra combos, and an incredibly dynamic mobility and mix-up game, she presents a whole different set of options and problems than her DNA double.
It's worth noting that Decapre is currently only 85% complete, so her appearance and move set may still be tweaked from now until Ultra Street Fighter 4's June release. If you want a deeper look into what she's capable of though, check out our exclusive gameplay commentary with Capcom's own Peter "Combofiend" Rosas, who also lent us his legendary execution to make the very first-ever Decapre combo video.
So what do you think of Decapre? Excited? Disappointed? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to stay tuned to IGN for more on Ultra Street Fighter 4 as its release date approaches!
