Street Fighter V: Latest Season 2 Character Reveal Details
Ever since Capcom's announcement of their planned Season 2 DLC for Street Fighter V last year, they apparently did a great job of keeping the rest of the upcoming characters secret. However, in recent news, the company made an announcement that they are going to reveal the next character to join the second season's cast. It appears the fighting game will be joined by Kolin as the next DLC fighter.
The character reveal was announced in tandem with the launch party of Lupe Fiasco's new album "DROGAS Light," at the Folsom Street Foundry in San Francisco. A special event featuring some Capcom Pro Tour matches and a cosplay contest will be held at the venue as well, reports Siliconera. "It's Not Design" is a new song from his new album, which was featured during the reveal trailer for the new fighter.
"Street Fighter V" will be adding Kolin to the roster as a free DLC character for Season Pass holders, while regular players can get her by splurging some Fight Money or from the Playstation Store. She is scheduled to join the cast on Feb. 28, 2017. The new character reportedly made her first appearance in "Street Fighter III," where she worked for Gill as his loyal assistant. She is described in Capcom's official blog to be helping fulfill the "Prophecy of "Miraha.
Her character description claims that she appears well-organized and calm, but can fly off the handle at a moment's notice when her master or their plans are threatened. The trailer showcases her ability to control the power of ice. Sources claim she uses the Russian martial art called Systema, which aims to use the opponent's momentum against them, as indicated by Game Rant.
Capcom continues to deliver its commitment to support "Street Fighter V." In a report from Gamenguide, Akuma was the first Season 2 DLC character released back in 2016. The publisher previously revealed that the remaining DLC fighters will all be new and was not usable in any other game from the franchise. Kolin's reveal appears to support the developers announcement.
