'Crimson Viper' joins Street Fighter 4 roster

crimson viperRyu and Ken have a new sparring partner, as "Crimson Viper" joins the Street Fighter IV cast. The series' newcomer might sound like a character cribbed from Kill Bill's deleted scenes, but her true origin is being kept under wraps. A preview in Famitsu reveals that Viper's fighting style will be completely new to the series; her voluptuous proportions are not.

Famitsu has also confirmed SFIV's first official platform: the arcade. Though long thought to be extinct, these musty dwellings for underdeveloped men and teenage angst still thrive on the islands of Japan. Within such havens, SFIV will make its debut later this year.
