series from her homeland in Brazil, Laura Matsuda is a Jiu-Jitsu
specialist, a first for the Street Fighter series. Continuing the
tradition of the famed Matsuda fighting style, Laura is constantly looking
for strong opponents around the world to defeat, in an effort to spread
the Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu's name and prestige.
Laura's methodical grapple technique comes equipped with a stunning
"Thunder Clap" projectile that zaps opponents and leaves them
questioning if they should get in close, or keep their distance. By
activating her "Spark Show" state, Laura's projectiles fly
further and her attacks and grabs have increased stun damage.
Using a variety of quick moving attacks and effective command grabs, Laura
will become a favorite for players who enjoy "up close and
personal" mind games." Scroll down further to read up on her
V-Skill & V-Trigger!
V-Skill - Linear Movement - Allows her to quickly move into or out
of attack range depending on which direction is held. Players can also
make use of the skill's inherent overhead by staying at neutral.
V-Trigger - Spark
Show - Improves her already impressive set of techniques. Upon
activation, she gains a ton of advantages, including increased travel with
Linear Movement, additional stun on attacks and grabs, and more distance
for her fireball, Thunder Clap.
