SSF4 Location Test [Continually Updated]


As quickly as the rumor of Ingrid being in SSF4: Arcade Edition arose, it was squashed. One theory is that early on, someone mistook Cammy in an alternate outfit for Ingrid. Yun and Yang, however, are confirmed to be in the game.

This is a location test; therefore, this is all subject to change. Recording is prohibited, so all information is hearsay. It may be inaccurate. Don't panic!
