    Ehh...aside from having a Sonic Boom, the new Charlie doesn't seem to be all that similar to Guile anymore. His Flashkick functions differently, his command grab, his teleports, his normals. It's all different. And it's a pretty safe bet that he's a command character on top of all that.

    It seems to be similar to Ryu and Gouken. Their fighting styles have some thematic similarities, but that's about it.

    Even though Japan couldn't give a shit about the series, Mortal Kombat is definitely Street Fighter's biggest competition in the west. Best not to risk getting your announcements out-hyped if you can help it.

    Mortal Kombat X though doesn't have as good online as SF series and there seems to be no planned DLC after the Kombat Pack which leads me to believe they weren't prepared and there wont be anymore DLC due to Interactions and the such. So MKX may not even be huge anymore by the time SFV hits.

    SF is also known as being pretty hardcore and a big thing in places like EVO.

    I can't as she's very popular, is Ryu's love interest and has starred in multiple animated movies with Ryu. They even gave her a manga series and SF4 hinted at the manga when her ending gave her that outfit.

    This is also a main series entry and I doubt SF wants to repeat SFIII which cut a lot of popular characters which didn't make fans happy.

    Well, she totally wants to bone him, he's just not interested. That's like 80% of love interests in Japanese media.
    Most of the time she just plays the role of Dan's straight man.
    Wait...Dan's in the game right? Don't toy with me CAPCOM!

    Since she appeared, SF4 even has her admit loving him. She's also portrayed as such in the Movies and the SF4 Movie she was the only one who could free Ryu from that evil stuff when he was enraged.

    One of her endings even has her as a mother with a child whose a miniature Ryu.

    Sakura has literally never been Ryu's love interest.

    They've had them both in games before. And they've basically turned Charlie into a whole new character.

    Yes she has, her first meeting with Ryu is her being blown away after first glance and forming an obsession with him. The comics even has nearly everyone, even her best friend, point out that Sakura is in love with Ryu which she misses what they said for laughs or because she's busy. SF4 reinforced that where she admits she loves him and the movies typically have her be the main woman to interact with Ryu and be his "light" when he's taken over by darkness.

    Sakura is also the only woman Ryu protects above all overs, the only woman who can calm him down and she's the only one presented as having deep feelings towards him.

    There is also her ending in the earlier games where she literally has a child who looks like Ryu Junior.

    Crazed stalker is a kind of love interest.

    Not really. Even less so when the stalking is over being trained in martial arts.

    No, she isn't. Are you talking about the American comics, the comics which have nothing at all to do with what's happening in the games?

    Her kid in the Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter ending doesn't look like Ryu at all. If they wanted you to think that kid was Ryu's they would have likely given him Ryu's eyebrows, maybe even his red Street Fighter 1 hair, or just the same type of hair as Ryu. He would probably look more like Ryu does in Pocket Fighter.

    Yes she is. Sakura has always been painted as his love interest. It was only recently that she accepted that in the games and decided that she wanted Ryu to know how she felt after she gets acknowledged by him Sakura even keeps a picture of Ryu from before as her motivation to go further beyond her limits.

    Capcom had them follow the canon set, they couldn't do as they will. Same as the movies. Capcom wouldn't have let them do that if the didn't agree with the story direction.

    Yes the child does look like Ryu. He has his face and the hair is similar. Furthermore, Ryu hasn't had messed up hair for a long time.

    http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/...20111018171641

    Looks just like Ryu of the sprite era. All the kid needs is slightly longer hair to fill him out, instead of a bit much on the top, and a bandana. Regardless, the child clearly was intentionally made to look like Ryu.

    Furthermore, the child looks like no other character but Ryu in the series and Sakura is only shown to be romantically interested in Ryu. Her SF4 endings reinforce that even when she got a bit older.

    That was never implied before SF4 to my knowledge. But that would go totally one way anyway and was probably played for laughs.

    Yeah...Sakura's never been portrayed as Ryu's love interest. Maybe in the comics, but the games have never shown her to have anything but respect/admiration for him.
