Capcom announces Menat, as the new Street Fighter


Capcom has announced a new street fighter to its list of roaster of fighters. Menat also titled as the Eyes of the Future is made available to download from the game. The developers had been teasing about the new street fighter from so long and that it would be revealed in the Hong Kong eSports Festival that will happen in 2017. Many gamers had already speculated that it will be Menat after the company made an announcement of a crystal ball.

“Menat seems to be heavily based around her crystal ball, which she uses for a variety of mix ups, combos and attacks,” commented Jonathan ‘Catalyst’ Grey at the Event Hubs blog. “It’s also a juggling tool. She even has a dive kick which looks to be effective in baiting throws.”

“Rounding out some of the other moves showcased in the trailer, she appears to have a slide attack, and a reflect move to deal with projectiles, her V-Trigger summons six orbs on screen, and they attack the opponent one at a time, plus can be used in conjunction with her crystal ball.”

The trailer in the above music had Egyptian music in the start that was there during Ed’s story hinting that it can be Rose’s apprentice. Also, she was similar to the Season 2 silhouette teaser. Menat is released with three different outfits, the battle outfit, the campaign mode and the standard costume. Additionally, around 30-anniversary costumes for other characters will be available on the DLC.
