Street Fighter IV: Here Comes a New Challenger

Here's the latest addition to the Street Fighter IV roster, a Mexican luchador. The designs seem to be much more refined compared to the SFA series and SFIII, which, in my opinion is a good thing. Don't get me wrong really enjoyed the alpha series but El Fuerte and Abel seem like real fighters and they seem like legitimate fighters representing their countries. I also like the fact El Fuerte has some sort of back story unlike Abel's amnesia, the whole amnesia backstory is overdone in games I think.

Introducing El Fuerte!

Another New Fighter Enters the Fray!!

As of this moment, Crimson Viper and Abel have been the only new characters announced for Street Fighter IV, but the time has finally come to lift the curtain on yet another new warrior!

Judging by his appearance and profile, it looks like he utilizes a pro wrestling style. In fact, his style is none other than Mexico’s famous Lucha Libre brand of wrestling! Will we see that style’s trademark aerial acrobatics at work? We can only hope and wait with baited breath…

This fiery fighter is a man who divides his professional life between Lucha Libre wrestling and gourmet cooking. His hot-blooded spirit is enough to give even the mighty Red Cyclone a run for his money! Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for his lackluster cooking skills…
