Capcom has announced today that fan favourite Karin Kanzuki would be making a comeback in Street Fighter V after a long absence since Street Fighter Alpha 3.
“Behind Karin’s golden locks and razer-sharp sharp wit lies a true martial artist trained in the unique “Kanzuki style” of fighting. Utilizing her new dash move allows her to close distances quickly with her opponents and go in for quick high-low attacks or throws. Her well-rounded skills allow her to possess a full set of tools and deploy a wide array of strikes and maneuvers that will have opponents feeling the pressure. For fans who’ve longed for her return, or for those just looking for a quick fighter with lots of versatility, Karin is a welcome addition to Street Fighter V!”
Also announced was the Capcom Fighters Network where players and fans alike can go online to check stats, view other players, send battle invitations and much more. There’s even a heat map that shows where all the action is currently going on in the world. Pretty neat, eh?
Capcom has sent over a bunch of screenshots showing the blonde bombshell in action, so feel free to browse the gallery of images below. They’re in 1920×1080, too, so they’ll make great background images if you’re into that kind of thing.
