Kolin joins Street Fighter V’s cast

First appearing in Street Fighter 3 as a non-playable character, Kolin will finally get to step in the spotlight and dazzle everyone with her snow and ice powers when she comes to Street Fighter V later this month.

Kolin’s first Street Fighter apperance

Kolin “excels in the Russian martial art of Systema, utilizing the opponent’s momentum against them and executing various slash-like attacks and knife hand strikes,” Capcom said on its official blog. A post at Capcom Unity detailed her powers and attacks:

V-Skill: Inside Slash

Kolin’s unique counter allows her to deflect and automatically punish incoming moves with ease.

V-Trigger: Diamond Dust

With a full V-meter, Kolin can slam the ground twice with her foot, each time shooting out a path of sharp icicles across the floor. In addition to damage and stun, this move freezes the opponent’s stun gauge. While in this special state, the stun gauge will not deplete and if Kolin is successful in stunning the opponent, they will be frozen in place.

Critical Art: Frost Tower

Kolin dashes forward with a slice of her hand. If the attack connects, she’ll continue summoning large icicles from the ground, throwing the opponent into the air and shattering the ice to drop them to the ground.

You can pick up Kolin on February 28th as part of the Season Two Character pass, which includes Akuma, who was released in December, and 4 other unknown fighters. Check out the gallery below to see.
