The fans have spoken and Capcom have listened once again! the fan favorite Sakura Kasugano is now officially in the home version Street Fighter IV as proven in the latest issue of Famitsu.
Sakura looks exactly like she did in Street Fighter alpha series, with her schollgirl uniform and all. She also looks like she plays the same.
The famitsu scan reveals also a new cool looking stage exclusive to the home versions.
Whil i am very happy that Sakura made it into the game it is kinda weird that she still looks like a high school girl although SF4 is few years after the alpha series. Here is hoping her alt costume will be the outfit she was wearing at the end of the sakura ganbaru manga (recently translated by Udon) where she grew up to become a gym teacher.
