When people started to datamine (aka being nosey) Street Fighter 5 for hidden details, they came across audio files which they thought said “Zen”.
This internet buzz actually got back to Capcom, and so they decided to have fun with the concept by creating another character from India.
“I thought it was funny when a character called ‘Zen’ started blowing up all over the internet, so I created this Indian guy called Zen. He won’t be in the game,” Capcom Japan wrote.
They also had some fun creating a gender bender version of Blanka, around the same time Laura was revealed. “I drew this fake character, a female Blanka, ‘Blana’. She won’t be in the game.”
Wonder if they will actually show up at some point in the game
