April finally puts light on the features of the three additional characters, costumes, and more for the Street Fighter V Spring Update.
Just this week, the Capcom live-streamed to reveal updates on the new characters, game content, and tournaments of Street Fighter V. The stream specifically focused on the details of the new characters Oro, Rose, and the surprise disclosure of Akira from Rival Schools.
Rose the Fortune Teller
Among the three new characters, the next one to be released would be Rose, a fortune-teller who will go live on Street Fighter V on April 19th. According to the stream, Rose will be re-introduced along with the new V-Skill named Soul Fortune. The skill uses several tarot cards to debuff her opponents or apply buffs to herself. Her moveset also includes familiar skills from Street Fighter IV along with newer ones, as showcased in the live stream.
Akira Kazama of Rival Schools
Besides the return of Rose and Oro, the live stream also released a pleasant surprise, especially for old-school fighting game fans. In the stream, a glimpse of Akira Kazama was shown. Akira was a character from Rival Schools, but will now be joining Street Fighter V in the future.
Oro the Hermit Monk
Soon to be added to the game will be the character of Oro, the 130-year old hermit monk first established in Street Fighter 3. In the upcoming release, Oro will maintain his fighting style of battling with only one hand; however, this time, he will be holding a pet turtle with the other one, in contrast to SF3 where that same arm was tied back to restrict his power.
Included in the live stream was also a glimpse of his updated skill set and fighting style, along with his expected release, which is in the summer.
Furthermore, she seems to be introducing another character from Rival Schools into Street Fighter along with Daigo who appears as an assist in her V-Trigger.
April 19 Update
For sure, all Street Fighter fans are giddy for what’s to come in the Street Fighter V Spring Update. Besides the character showcasing in the live stream, Capcom also revealed more for what’s to come in the next couple of weeks.
The upcoming update on the 19th will not only re-introduce Rose into Season 5 but also present other new content in the store. “Professional” skins will be included for Juri, Seth, and Vega! Besides the fact that the skins can be purchased individually, you can also get them along with purchasing a Premium Pass.
Capcom has been a big influence in the lives of those earlier fans of fighting games with its Street Fighter series. However, the latest advancements in technology have given rise to more similar fighting games. Before Street Fighter V arrives, you can search for these games on Steam on PC or play them on any console like the Xbox One S.
