Hillside Plaza is a stage in Street Fighter V. It is the home stage of Laura. It was first seen during a brief battle between Ryu and Chun-Li before the game's release, and fully revealed with Laura's debut trailer.
The stage takes place in Rio de Janeiro. A replica of the famous Escadaria Selaron stairwell can be seen to the right of the stage. There are Carnaval dancers to the left of the stage, dancing along as the battle commences. A fruit stand vendor and a toucan observe the fight to the right of the stage. The toucan flies around and bothers the fruit stand vendor if the characters get knocked down within radius. Instead of the world-famous Christ the Redeemer statue in the background, a different statue resembling the FIFA World Cup Trophy can be seen perched on top of the mountainside, which stands as a reference to the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The first knockout zone in this stage include getting thrown into the tunnel on the left side of the stage, while the Carnaval dancers chase after them. The second knockout zone sees the defeated opponent thrown into the fruitstand on the right side of the stage, where a bunch of bananas falls onto their head.
