Is that one even coming to the other systems or is it Switch exclusive?

I doubt it'll stay Switch exclusive. Capcom would be stupid not to milk the Switch and then release it cross-platform.

Kolin is the newest character in Street Fighter V. She's got some icy attacks and counter grabs down pat. She'll be available on February 28th.

So, Eminem from story mode (aka "Ed") was "accidentally" revealed as the next DLC character.

Probably getting a trailer here soon.

Could be interesting, as he uses Psycho Power and was apparently trained by Balrog.

I thought his involvement in the story was pretty cool and teasing something bigger.

I really wonder how he will fight and what his motivations are. It would be cool if he was kind of an evil rogue, not really loyal to Bison/Shadaloo and not connected to Illuminati.

He seemed like Balrog's handler, in that he was either protecting Balrog or keeping an eye on him. I don't know what that dynamic is but it was cool that Balrog had a friend :lol:

I'm a masochist I guess.

I bought the season 1 pass at half price (the game itself is also half price at $20 on PSN this week, fyi).

This despite it not really being my favorite game. I figure that as something of a fighting game collector I might as well get the entire roster, though I'm not buying into season 2 until it likewise goes on sale.

That said, I am really looking forward to trying out these additional characters, particularly Alex, Balrog, Juri, and Urien.

Yeah I don't get that, they had a great simple character design, then they turn it into steroid Shadoloo ass. SFV should just be some over-the-top 80s wrestling game. Everybody roided up.

If there are fellow olds who remember the "Sheng Long" EGM prank from the 90's, this is a COSMIC mark-out :markout:

http://shoryuken.com/2017/10/19/x-kira- ... ttle-mode/

"“And at Extra Battle, also we can count the presence of a character that Electronic Gaming Monthly created on April 1st of 1991. Yes, I’m talking about Sheng Long. He’ll be at eventual moments of Extra Battle, present as an overpowered “Boss.” He then tweeted, “The Sheng Long Event is crazy. It promises 1 Million Fight Money if you win, but it’s a lie. There’s no way you can beat him. He will always get up when defeated."


I remember being at an arcade when someone brought that particular EGM in. People lost their minds seeing "Sheng Long" and trying to do this. SF fervor was already at a high and people trying to go 10 rounds against Bison without being hit or hitting him was something that was became the #1 priority. (going one round without contact was basically impossible against SF2 Bison). EGM totally nailed people (myself included) with this.

Sheng Long HO-AXE turned into an actual game feature in the same year FP:HD turned into FPW :D
