Capcom has revealed the next fighter to join the Street Fighter V roster, and it is none other than Ibuki. Sporting her familiar schoolgirl-meets-ninja attire, Ibuki becomes the 3rd DLC character added to the Street Fighter V roster following in the footsteps of Alex and Guile. Ibuki uses Guile as a sparring partner in the reveal video as she demonstrates moves both new and old.
Most frequently used are her sharp kunai throwing knives, as she punishes Guile from all angles. Watch as she puts all her ninjutsu skills to good use in the trailer below.
I think I am really going to like playing as Ibuki. Seeing her in action reminds me a lot of Naruto. The music, smoke bombs, kunai throwing knives, replacement jitsu, and intricate hand signals are all elements seen in one of my favorite anime. While no exact release date was given, I expect Ibuki to make her debut soon as part of Capcom’s June update for Street Fighter V.
