well, in my opinion if you look closely at majorty of her character models and promotinal art she looks mixed race (as in her asian looks are diluted down.)(from what i can see only sf2 and sfIV character models does she 'look' asian.)
compare the sf alpha series to sfIV models and art work and you will see what i mean.
dude you asked why i said 'shes to asian' when it looks like she should be... but yes its the capcom art division they should stick to a model and keep it. to many games have different variations on her looks and dress.
