It looks like Sakura’s rival Karin from ‘Street Fighter Alpha 3’ will be making an appearance in the upcoming ‘Street Fighter V’. The news was unveiled during this year’s Tokyo Game Show by Capcom.
Players will find Karin a well rounded character who possesses a wide arsenal of strikes and moves for any situation and by utilizing her new dash move she can close the distance against opponents quite quickly. Also her V-Trigger will allow her to perform her signature Guren Ken multi-string attacks and mix it up. The name of the game with Karin is speed and she has it in spades.
Behind Karin’s golden locks and razer-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!
