Game company CAPCOM has officially added today the newest fighter to popular action fighting video game Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, Rose.
After the release of Dan Hibiki last February 2021, Rose is the second character to enter the ring as part of the fifth and final season of SFV. For those uninformed, Rose was first introduced in Street Fighter Alpha and has become a staple in the series ever since like Street Fighter Alpha 2, Alpha 3, and SFIV. This soul-powered maven has now powered up even more with new tricks up her sleeve.
Rose’s newest iteration comes with powerful moves that are familiar to the fans of the franchise. Her Soul Satellite makes a return from SFIV as a V-Skill, which allows her summon orbs and put pressure on her opponents. Soul Illusion from SF Alpha series also comes back as a V-Trigger, which creates a mirrored Rose that performs the same attack shortly after she does and that deals tons of damage to her opponent.
Soul Fortune is a new V-Skill that allows Rose to draw one of four tarot cards to buff herself or debuff or opponent. This allows her to choose between playing offensively or defensively depending on the tide of the battle. Soul Dimension is a new V-Trigger move that allows her to teleport to one of three spots on the screen to offer expanded combo options.
Street Fighter V version of Rose is available with the Season 5 Character Pass or the Season 5 Premium Pass. She can also be purchased via cash or Fight Money. There is also the new stage called Marina of Fortune, which is based from the SF Alpha 2 stage and also purchasable via cash or Fight Money.
The SFV Spring update also revealed new information and gameplay footage of upcoming characters Oro and Akira. They are two upcoming characters scheduled to release in Summer 2021. More details about these characters the final unannounced Season 5 character will be revealed at a later date.
