Some of these features include her V-Skill I, Soul Fortune, which allows Rose to use a tarot card to either polish herself or debuffer the opponent, and her V-Skill II, Soul Satellite, which returns from Street Fighter IV.
“When activated, Rose summons a sphere that will circle around her,” it says in the post to PlayStation SFV Spring Update. “Hit the V-Skill again to summon another bullet. Each bullet can either hit once or negate a single project hit. Use this V-Skill to put more pressure on your opponents.”
Oro, the wandering hermit, will join the game’s list after Rose. Last seen in Street Fighter III, Oro does not yet have a release date, but Capcom says he will be added to the game this summer. Oro comes with a set of some of his classic features from Street Fighter III and some new features as well.
“He even retains his one-armed fighting style,” the blog post states. “However, unlike SFIII where he sealed one of his arms, here he keeps his new turtle pet in contention.”One of Oro’s new moves is called Tsuranekeashi. It is a kick move “used to keep opponents in check, but can also be used in combinations.” Another new feature for this fighter is his V-Skill II called Minomushi. It is actually a small hop that can be expanded into a combination of kicks and punches.
The last big thing that was described in the blog post about the spring update, is the Akira Kazama, a fighter aircraft that was announced in August last year, and the penultimate fighter aircraft that came with Street Fighter V season 5 premium cards. Not much was said about this new character that originally comes from the video game Rival Schools, but Capcom released an ongoing trailer that you can see above. More will be revealed about Akira “in the near future,” according to Capcom.
Three new suits for Vega, Seth and Juri hit the game along with Rose’s release on April 19. You can check them out below:
