Over the weekend, Capcom announced via the official Street Fighter V Twitter page that a new fighter is joining the expanding roster for Street Fighter V. Menat, also called The Eyes of the Future, is the penultimate addition to the game via the Season 2 character pass. The previous additions have been Akuma, Kolin, Ed, and Abigail.
Menat appears to be from Egypt, based on her bonus costumes. One of which is straight-up skimpy mummy wrappings; yep, this is still Street Fighter V. Her abilities are centered around her ability to summon one or more orbs, which she projects forward and at multiple angles, which then extend an opponent’s juggle state.
To get real nerdy for a second, these orbs use an incredibly similar sound effect to the Street Fighter IV powers of Rose, a character I used to main in those days. Which makes sense, because there’s a deliberate connection there. Menat is Rose's pupil. We'll see more when she joins Street Fighter V on August 29.
