New Fighters And Boss Discovered For Street Fighter IV
More Street Fighter IV information has surfaced thanks to Korean website, VideoGamerX, which boasts several new screenshots and details on new characters.
It seems we can expect Fei Long and Dan as two new bonus characters in the console version of the game, and we get a brand new boss, too. His name is Seth, the "Puppet Master," and he's the CEO of Shadowloo's Weapons Division, S.I.N. He ain't all human - he's like a futuristic Frankenstein; his body consists of many different robot/cyborg parts - and he's guaranteed to be a formidable adversary. Of course, everyone knows we need a main villain in every fighting game, because there needs to be one final, super challenging obstacle to face before you can claim victory as tournament champion. There have been many over the years - it was Vega in Street Fighter 2, for example - and it seems the "Puppet Master" will be our nemesis in SFIV. We're not too concerned about the back story, though, just because...well, we're talking about a fighting game, here. Has anyone ever paid attention to the plot in a fighting game? Ever?
Nah, it's all about the gameplay and the fighters, and you can check out the new character pics over at that site. Fei Long is a Bruce Lee-type fighter, apparently, and Seth just looks massive.
