Maybe this will put the "omg SF2 rehash/fanservice" people at ease? Now we just need a translation of what said...

Oh, yeah. Thanks for the scans!

Oh snap.

Wait...looks like Capcom's spin on KOF's Vanessa.

Hair and glasses gotta go.

She's closer to being in good shape than the actual game though. Zing.

Poland baby!
:lol

This game is approaching the bottom of the barrel of the franchise rather quickly.

That girl looks like something from KOF. WHICH IS GOOD BTW, cause SNK designs > Capgod designs.

She looks like someone from KOF maximum impact, in term of design.

Not quite what I expected for a game like Street Fighter. SNK design is a good description.

The character isn't that bad. Her overall design is a lot cleaner and simpler than most of SNK's stuff. Her overall look is reminiscent of Vanessa and Vice/Mature from KOF, but I think she fits into SF - in an SF Alpha kind of way.

She looks like something that would come from an early 90's movie. This would make her unique in a world where people actually try to look cool.

Joke post?

I would laugh a hearty laugh if they brought back Vega again...or if Vega is using this chick's body as a vessel. :lol

Everything except her name was a joke post. Her name really is Crimson Viper.
Oh, and not a joke. She's a Pro Wrestler (or uses pro wrestling moves).

Edit: Ok that's a joke too. Only her name is not.

Eh. She looks fine, if not like she came from KoF. Doesn't matter though. I wonder how she handles.

If that is a long-ass braid trailing behind her, then I call some sort of hair-whip attack
