"Joining the 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.

And just in case you missed Laura's official reveal trailer from yesterday (or simply want to rewatch it), here it is below!
