Rated M for mature(ish)

Ok. Deep breath.

Have you seen the new Laura costume for Street Fighter V?

Good lord.

I did not get all worked up, either for or against, Mika's bizarre boob panel or Cammy's lack of pants. There is precedent for both of those, It is the way that they have always looked. Someone over at Capcom was listening at did tweak a few camera angles to hide Mikea's butt slap and Cammy's, well, everything, so there was hope that future costumes would be a little more, shall we say, conservative.

Cammy's new costume has her wearing a military looking suit coat. And no pants. Fine, it is no better or worse than what she already had.

But Laura? Even I think that it is egregious and I am a terrible person. It may be worse than Millena's bandage costume from Mortal Kombat 9 on the all important 'I pray that no one sees me playing this' ranking.

Fine, I'll inline them.


vs


Indefensible.

Here's the difference: Mortal Kombat X learned from its mistakes. Street Fighter V is running right back into them.
