Rose Enters The Ring in Street Fighter V Today
Street Fighter V’s fifth and final season is continuing in full force. Not only did we recently get our first look at Akira, but we’re now on our second character release: Rose. Available now, Rose is ready to deliver her fortunes to the rest of the cast of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition. First introduced in Street Fighter Alpha, she’s been an iconic character to the series with several appearances. Now in Street Fighter V, she serves as Menat’s mentor and brings plenty of new tricks to her skillset. You can check out her gameplay trailer below.
Even with new tricks, longtime fans will definitely recognize some of her staple moves. Her Soul Satellite returns as a V-Skill, as she summons orbs to deliver more pressure on her opponents. Returning from Street Fighter Alpha is her Soul Illusion, now her V-Trigger, as she creates a mirror of herself to copy her attacks, therefore extending her combos exponentially. Some of her new moves include Soul Fortune, a new V-Skill where she draws one of four tarot cards to activate a buff or debuff. Her other V-Trigger, Soul Dimension, is a new teleportation technique, giving Rose freedom to move to one of three areas on the stage.
Rose is available as part of the Street Fighter V Season 5 Character Pass for $24.99 or the Season 5 Premium Pass for $39.99. Fans can also purchase her separately for $5.99 or for 100,000 Fight Money. Her new stage, the Street Fighter Alpha 2 inspired Marina of Fortune, can also be purchased for $3.99 or 70,000 Fight Money. The stage is also included in the Season 5 Premium Pass. For those that want to add some style to Rose, she also launches with several amazing new costumes. Fans of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure may love the outfits on offer. We even get a Capcom Fighting Evolution reference to Demitri’s Midnight Bliss. You can check out Rose’s outfits and more in the gallery below.
