Street Fighter 5: Everything announced in the spring update

Capcom has revealed its upcoming plans for Street Fighter V, including details of three new characters to join the list over the coming months. The newest fighter, Dan, was added to the game in February, and the next is Rose, which was announced during the winter update for the game. Rose, a soul fortune teller, went on sale on April 19 with a launch that Capcom says will “change the future of Street Fighter V.”

Some of those moves include her V-skill I, Soul Fortune, which allows Rose to use a tarot card or buffer or debuff her opponent, and her V-Skill II, Soul Satellite, which returns from Street Fighter IV.

“When activated, Rose summons a orb that will circle around her,” the PlayStation SFV Spring Update blog post said. “Press V-skill again to summon another ball. Each ball can either hit or deny one missile strike once. Use this V-skill to put more pressure on opponents.”

The wandering hermit Oro will join the list of games after Rose. Last seen in Street Fighter III, Oro doesn’t have a release date yet, but Capcom says it will be added to the game this summer. Oro comes with a set of moves featuring some of his classic moves from Street Fighter III, as well as some new moves.

“It even maintains the style of one-handed fighting,” the blog states. “However, unlike SFIII where he sealed one of his hands, here during the fight he keeps his new pet turtle.”One of Oro’s new moves is called Tsuranekeashi. It’s a kick “used to help opponents stay at a distance, but can also be used in combinations.” Another new move for this fighter is his V-Skill II called Minomushi. It is basically a small hop that can expand into a combination of punches and punches.

The last big thing detailed in a post on the Spring Update blog is Akira Kazama, a fighter announced last August, and the last last fighter to come with a Street Fighter V Season 5 premium pass. Not much has been said about this new character originally from the Rival Schools video game, but Capcom has released a trailer in preparation that you can check out above. More will be revealed about Akira “in the near future,” according to Capcom.

The inclusion in the game with Rose’s release on April 19 represents three new costumes for Vega, Seth and Yuri. You can see them below:New costumes for Vega, Seth and Yuri, Photo: Street Fighter V, Capcom
