It was revealed that this new character is Miss X from SNK Gals' Fighters. You have the option to either play as an actual gender bender version of Iori or it's original crossdressing incarnation from the previously mentioned game.

S/he also has a "Kyo fangirl" costume for added hilarity.

Sega Renews Virtua Fighter Trademark Alongside "Battle Genesis"


RE: Fighting Games - ZpaceJ0ck0 - 11-08-2018

So I recently found this on SRKs Street Fighter story thread. A short promotional SF1 manga, published issue 13 of Gamest Magazine on the year 1987. This was the first appearance of Ryu's master daughter.

1: Hadoken - Prelude of battle/struggle
2: by Kiyoshi Utata
3: So, are you going anyway?
4: Ah… (on the bottle reads “water”)
5: Please, don’t go!
6: But your father, who is our master, was murdered.
7: But…
8: I don’t wanna lose you too!
9: What?
10: Ken!
11: Ryu! I found out who our master’s enemy is!
12: (What? Only you guys are here having fun!)
13: And his name is SAGAT!
14: Ah!
15: There are times when a man needs to follow his path.
16: To be continued.
17: Maybe…


Man, I feel sorry for Gouken. First, he was killed by Sagat, then M.Bison (Dictador) and finally Akuma....

But at the same time, he actually never died in the first place. It's kind of weird.

We will reach the top of the martial arts world!

Story

From childhood, they learned various styles of martial arts, until finally they developed their own fighting styles. They are two young and talented fighters: Ryu and Ken. The two are rivals, but are together in pursuit of reaching the top of the martial arts world; so they set out for the fighting world.
Amongst many street fighters from around the world, with a first-rate strength and a technique to make their home country proud, who is going to be hailed as "the strongest man in the world"? Ryu or Ken?

Ryu
Height: 180cm (5’11”)
Weight: 76kg (167lbs)
Action: Psycho Fire, Dragon Punch, Hurricane Kick
He is a very skilled fighter, who since childhood has learned various martial arts styles, until finally developed his own style of fighting. Ambitioning to become the strongest man in the world, risking his own life, he leaves for the world of street fighting.

Ken
Height: 180.3 (5’11”)
Weight: 77kg (169lbs)
Action: Psycho Fire, Dragon Punch, Hurricane Kick
Like Ryu, he is also a very skilled fighter, who, from a young age, learned several martial arts styles, until finally developed his own fighting style. In terms of technique, it is equivalent to Ryu. He also wants to become the strongest man in the world, and sets out to pursue that goal.

This is the group of Street Fighters!

Who will conquer the [fighting] world? Ryu? Ken? Or it will be…

Retsu (Japan)
Height: 181cm (5’11”)
Weight: 76kg (167lbs)
Action: Jump Kick
He was a master of Shorinji Kenpo in a monastery. To test his skills, he repeatedly engaged in personal fights until he was expelled. To this day, to prove his strength, he continues to street fight.

Joe (U.S.A.)
Height: 185.2cm (6’1”)
Weight: 81kg (178lbs)
Action: Rolling Sobat
Using extraordinary strength and speed as weapons, at age 24, he is the king of the underworld martial arts style. He has a lot of self-confidence, because even the street fights - which brings risks to his own life - he faces having fun, as if it were a training session.

Mike (U.S.A.)
Height: 196cm (6’5”)
Weight: 103kg (227lbs)
Action: Left Hook
An ex-boxer. He had more than enough conditions to become a champion, but ended up killing an opponent during a fight, so he disappeared from the boxing world. Nowadays, he acts as a street fighter.

Geki (Japan)
Height: 180.6cm (5’11”)
Weight: 72kg [76kg in the SFV: AE gallery] (167lbs)
Action: Jump Shuriken
A man who inherited the blood and techniques from the ninjas, and who lives in the world of shadows. In order to show the world the strength of the ninjas, he follows in the street fight. Also, he’s a master of the shuriken.

Lee (China)
Height: 178.8cm (5’10”)
Weight: 96kg (211lbs)
Action: Step Punch
An excellent Chinese kenpo fighter. If the opponent is someone recognized as a true fighter, he fights with that person. And if it is a serious combat, he will make no concessions; there is no guarantee that the opponent will leave alive.

Gen (China)
Height: 179cm (5’10”)
Weight: 68kg (150lbs)
Action: Arc Punch
More than a Kenpo fighter, he can be considered a "assassin”. From the Chinese kenpo, which he began to learn as a child, he developed a new style of his own: ansatsu-ken. To overpower and defeat his style, it takes a lot of skill.

Eagle (England)
Height: 182cm (6’0”)
Weight: 78kg (172lbs)
Action: Rolling Attack
Hired as security for a new richnob, he uses iron rods. His past is shrouded in mystery, but if we look at his technical level, we may think he has trained hard. If, on the one hand, he has such chivalry, on the other hand, he has enough cold blood and truculence to kill his adversary when in a dispute.

Birdie (England)
Height: 201cm (6’7”)
Weight: 114kg (251lbs)
Action: Head Bat
He was proud to have no opponent of his level in the world of martial arts - boxing, professional wrestling and several others - because he is very strong and his opponents vanished. Now he works as a bouncer at a bar. He still has an endless strength pulsing strongly in his veins.

Adon (Thailand)
Height: 181.2cm (5’11”)
Weight: 73kg (161lbs)
Action: Vertical Rolling – Combination Attack
He is the main disciple of Sagat - who is considered the fighting king of the illegal thai kickboxing. His swift attacks are recognized by Sagat.

Sagat (Thailand)
Height: 213.5cm (7’0”)
Weight: 119kg (262lbs)
Action: Tiger Attack
He is the illegal "fighting king" of thai kickboxing. He is considered the strongest barehanded fighter in the world. He has fast and strong blows and no one is a match for him. As a child, he eventually wounded one eye, which was a reason for him to make a firm decision to become a strong man. With an unsurpassed combat spirit and with a great commitment, currently, he continues fighting.

Here is the cover of the previously mentioned VHS tape.
