Announced early this morning Karin Kanzuki from the Street Fighter Alpha 3 has joined the Street Fighter V cast. Karin was one of the highly requested characters to be added to the roster besides Alex from Street Fighter Third Strike. Karin has been introduced along with a brand new stage called “Kanzuki Estate.” Karin uses her new dash move to close the distance between her and the opponent and set up high/low mix ups or throws. Karin is definitely a Rush Down Character.
So Lets talk V-Skill and V-Trigger
V-Skill – Meioken: Karin attacks with a palm strike that stops projectiles and causes a knockdown when it successfully hits an opponent. The attack can be charged slightly, giving it improved hit and block properties.
V-Trigger – Kanzuki-Ryu Guren No Kata: Karin channels her Ki to unlock the true power of the Kanzuki fighting style. In V-Trigger, she gains access to the Guren Ken attack, which includes over half a dozen follow-ups. After the initial attack, she can go straight into an overhead, a low sweep, a throw, and even a backdash to bait out counter attacks.
Let’s take a look at Karin’s Back story.
Karin is the young heiress to the Kanzuki Zaibatsu, a global financial conglomerate that possesses vast wealth and resources. Her regal and pampered upbringing is what led to her high-maintenance attitude and razer-sharp wit. But behind her flowing golden locks lies a true martial artist obsessed with upholding her family motto, “In all things be victorious!” Karin is well versed in numerous martial arts, which she and her family combined to create a unique “Kanzuki style” of fighting.
Here is some HI Rez shots of Karin.
Karin is also available to play at Tokyo Game Show 2015.
