Through a live stream, Capcom delivered a large amount of content that gamers can look forward to in the coming months. Including detailed information on upcoming characters, dynamics and updates.
The winter update for Street Fighter V includes the following:
New character: Don Hibigi
With the winter update on February 22nd, the first character of the fifth content season will also appear: Dan Hippie.
Dan’s special moves are reminiscent at first glance of Shotokan characters like Ryu, Ken and Aguma. He holds a fireball, an upwards called Katokan and Koirukkan. However, his movements are much less controlled than those of more experienced fighters.
His ego does not seem to be affected by his tough fighting style. Teasing has always been a part of Dan’s character identity. Street Fighter V goes one step further and builds its V-capabilities around this property. V-Skill 1 allows Dan to undo his moves with his slander, thus exploring completely new combo ways.
Its V-triggers, on the other hand, are very regular. V-Trigger 1 is his strong fireball, How Katogan, which can be charged and, after a certain time, can break the opponent’s barrier. Dance’s V-Trigger 2, Tenzi Saikio no Katta, strengthens his regular fireball and surface. For example, the latter will become completely indestructible, which will turn into a real dragon punch.
His Street Fighter V version seems to put an end to it. Dana Everything we’ve seen so far is very interesting. Its ability to repel attacks using V-Skill opens up completely new possibilities. It remains to be seen whether the Saikio Master will be able to keep his own against the remaining street fighters.
New Dynamics: V-Shift
Upcoming Balance Update brings a new, defensive mechanism into action: V-Shift uses a block of your V-bar and allows you to make an inaccessible line behind your character. If you avoid a move properly, a slow motion effect is created to help punish your movement. However, if you use V-Shit without avoiding the attack, the action will swallow your entire V-Shit.
Each character has a V-shift break. This is the follow-up attack you can carry out after a successful V-Shit.
Season Pass Bonus: Eleven
If you bought the season pass for the fifth season, you will get another character in the Dawn release: Eleven is a format designer who transforms into a different, available character in each competition. In the game he behaves similarly to the original fighter, but retains its glossy appearance.
Free for everyone: Phase 2 and Balance Adjustment
Regardless of whether you purchased Season Pass or Dawn separately, you will receive a free reserve update on February 22nd. This includes adjustment for all characters and V-shift mechanic.
In addition, all players get another point for free. The phase replacement shows the old training position in a darker form, with blue accents.
Capcom emphasized this and provided a detailed preview of the next article in the release list: Roses are available in the spring. You can already get an in-depth look at their new moves and their status. A great invention was her Soul Spark fireball, which she could now use in the air.
Her V-Capacity 1 Rose allows her to draw a Tarot card, which gives her a strengthening effect, and she can use it as a projectile. V-Capacity 2 builds soul satellites. A skill that was to become the Ultra Special Move in Street Fighter IV, and mastered Red Bull Athlete Oliver “Luffy” Hey Used when he won the EVO with Rose in 2014.
Of course, Luffy is happy to get his character back.
Oro will return
Finally there was a big surprise for the fans. After the live stream is already over, you can watch a short scene where the character Oro uses his coconut super movie. Street Fighter III: The Connoisseurs have long loved the fighter who first appeared in the Third Strike Pack. With this note, Capcom confirms that the final character is Season 5 Oro.
