It must have been since Street Fighter Alpha 3 since we have last seen Karin Kanzuki. Well, fans of her own branded Kanzuki fighting style will have something to look forward to come Street Fighter V. Yep Karin is set to enter the arena once again.
CAPCOM announced the news at the Tokyo Game Show today. This news comes after CAPCOM revealed Rashid‘s trailer.
Karin’s ‘rekka-style’ fighting technique allows her to create multiple chain combos and moves, which is kind of what you want to keep things fresh and fighting moves unpredictable.
Furthermore, her V-Trigger special move unlocks a lunging punch, which packs quite the wallop. The longer a Karin player holds down the V-Skill inputs — medium punch and medium kick — the more powerful her final attack will be. Plus it totally washes out any enemy projectile weapons, so, yeah. Try that on for size.
