The lights are on
After today's Final Round Street Fighter IV tournament, Capcom
showed trailer revealing the final member of the five new characters
for the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV. Her name is Decapre.
Decapre is a member of The Dolls, a group of teenage girl soldiers
who have been brainwashed to serve as M. Bison's bodyguards. Decapre is a
Russian who is similar in appearance to Cammy. She is a charge
character who doesn't have instant moves. She has made appearances in
the comic before as well as non-playable cameos in previous games, but
this is the first time she will be a playable fighter.
You can check out some Decapre screens and her trailer below, as well
as some costumes that will be offered for those who pre-order the game.
Ultra Street Fighter IV adds new characters, stages, and mechanics to
Street Fighter IV. It will receive a retail release, but it will
also be available as a DLC update for Street Fighter IV for $14.99.

So you know what just came to my attention about Decapre? LMAO Okay, so not only is she just a reskin of Cammy aesthetically with much of the same move set, along with some Bison Psycho Power effects. But some of her normal combos that Cammy can't do are ripped from X Tekken and her first Ultra is basically a Dhalsim fireball. On top of that her second ultra is actually Raven's from X Tekken. Like, holy ***, how lazy can you get? Think the only actual new stuff for her is scramble mode and the aerial spiral arrow, which is basically just a backwards variant of cannon strike. Oh, they gave her an Oni foot stomp too... clever. *eyeroll*
Also: "Decapre is a Russian who is similar in appearance to Cammy."
"Similar"?! She's a straight up clone in appearance. You couldn't design something more unique? Even just a hairstyle change would suffice. Come the f*** on.
