The newest Street Fighter 5 character Kolin announced, to be released February 28th

Posted by Justin 'AdaptiveTrigger' Gordon • February 9, 2017 at 8:03 a.m. PST

The newest Street Fighter 5 character has been announced. As expected, the character announced is Kolin.

With all the icy background hints, it isn't surprising that she is capable of ice powers as seen in the trailer.

It is noted that the character will be released on February 28th.

Hit the jump below to check out Kolin's trailer.

V-Skill: Inside Slash


Apparently her V-Skill functions as a counter. After absorbing a hit from her opponent, she'll perform a double slash attack upon the opponent.

V-Trigger: Diamond Dust


Kolin will be able to use her V-Trigger up to two times (similar to Ibuki and Urien, for example). Upon activation, she'll strike the ground causing ice to jut out from the ground.

While the V-Trigger is capable of dealing damage and stun, it also has the unique property of freezing the opponent's stun gauge. If the opponent's stun meter fills up completely during this, then they will become frozen in place.

Critical Art: Frost Tower


This appears to start off as a single strike. If the strike connects, it'll go into an animation in which Kolin will summon multiple icicles from the ground that will strike and lift the opponent.

GASP*

Even though everyone and their mother knew it was going to be her, it's still awesome to see her gameplay. Definitely enjoying the rekka style with projectiles and it looks like a counter.

MCMathematik said on February 9, 2017 at 8:06 a.m.

You can say "K.O." all you want, but that Critical Art was a straight up fatality.

JamesThePowerhead said on February 9, 2017 at 8:07 a.m.

To be honest, I don't like her face here, and she even looks a bit surdier?
But she looks fun, looking forward to more details

LUPE THE GOAT .

I was more excited reading about Kolin playstyle. Than seeing it in action -_-

Kinda underwhelm lol but that air grab combo

freshprince said on February 9, 2017 at 8:07 a.m.

She looks dope!!!! Especially that counter throw😱😱😱😱 but is it me or her face looks wayyyyy different 🤔

#13
FightGamerFight said on February 9, 2017 at 8:08 a.m.

With that out of the way now we can really focus on the remaining four characters left

She looks great. I like her older face model more though.

#17
Heta said on February 9, 2017 at 8:10 a.m.

Finally, finally I have my main from SFV newcomers. Any new fighter feels complete for me when this is met. Loving everything I see and hear. That zoning and rekka now I see and was that a parry :D Nice V-trigger and CA. Kolin is the best wooot \o/ freezing cold.

All her costumes look amazing!!

Not bad. Like the fact that she has ice powers.

she looks ugly

#25
Zephyrus said on February 9, 2017 at 8:13 a.m.

it does. It's sharper and her hair looks much better animated. It's clear that capcom didn't just port her story mode 3d model.

#26
StarOcean_3 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:13 a.m.

Seems interesting, might use her until Sakura comes out (in 2019).

#27
StarBuster said on February 9, 2017 at 8:13 a.m.

LMao people were trolling Capcom with comments that she is coming last day of february but they actually did it xD

#28
HawtBawls said on February 9, 2017 at 8:14 a.m.

Why did they change her face? Original looked better.

Didn't see any zoning at all. Or maybe that's just SF V zoning.

Looks interesting enough to try.

Yeah she story mode self looks way better! She looks ugly in the trailer lol

What happened to her model? Ken, is that you?

Her moves look dope though.

Indeed, i dont like her face

I'm surprised with just how little I care

Of course, Fang and Alex are not trash enough yet

#37
KristineR said on February 9, 2017 at 8:15 a.m.

Kolin seems like she has the movements of Abel...The one thing i notice about this trailer is the things she can do such as dash through fire balls and rushing down are all ex moves. I just they would have highlighted her basic and super moves more...

#38
therealawest815 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:16 a.m.

OMG IM SERIOUSLY IN LOVE! I FINALLY HAVE A REASON TO BE TRULY HAPPY ABOUT SFV SINCE PLAYING THE 1ST BETA!

She has the best move set Ive seen so far, karin + cyber Subzero = KOLIN basically lol

#39
Zephyrus said on February 9, 2017 at 8:16 a.m.

her v-trigger is straight broken. Stun gauge doesn't drop and if you manage to stun them they'll freeze on the ground.

Her v-skill is a counter move.

I definately like her. Her battle costume and Nostalgia costume are pretty awesome. Will buy the nostalgia costume. Wonder what the code will change in it.

#40
Fallenrose777 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:16 a.m.

I like the moveset but her face is gross. I liked the story mode face way better. This is one of the few times you wish capcom was lazy and copy and pasted something.

#41
Megamanx9plz said on February 9, 2017 at 8:16 a.m.

I think is time to drop Juri

POISON WINPOSE LUL,but i'm glad it's a new character which seems complete

#43
Nevran said on February 9, 2017 at 8:17 a.m.

I dig it, really. It will maybe make me want to try support the season pass and give some faith like a naive child ahah.

Kinda dig the music too!

#44
Xykes said on February 9, 2017 at 8:17 a.m.

She has attack reversals like Geese.

Nice.

#45
DarkKirby said on February 9, 2017 at 8:17 a.m.

Why did they decide to make her uglier than her story mode model. This is confusing.

#46
CKNG said on February 9, 2017 at 8:19 a.m.

yo, her v-trigger is actually really named "Diamond Dust" lol

#47
Zephyrus said on February 9, 2017 at 8:20 a.m.

btw, did you guys notice she has a double jump?

#48
CODYYY said on February 9, 2017 at 8:20 a.m.

incoming balance changes too...... i swear if they start nerfing characters again -_-

no characters are broken in the game.

Kolin looks really fun, she also seems to have some sick mixups. I am pretty excited to try her out.

#49
AS_Columbo said on February 9, 2017 at 8:20 a.m.

again, didn't ono mention that he wants to reveal all season 2 characters at the same time?

#50
malcrash01 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:20 a.m.

What is wrong with her face?

At least her story costume costume covers that up

I usually watch trailers over and over, but with this music I just can't :(

I want here SF3 costume!

Quite interesting. Looking forward to trying her out.

no he did not.

CharmingRogue said on February 9, 2017 at 8:22 a.m.

Not Elsa then? :( awwww.... Oh well, I'll still play her

#57
chemicalBirdkick said on February 9, 2017 at 8:22 a.m.

it does look like they changed her face from the story mode face. she looks more like cammy now. especailly on her battle costume.

#58
Cammystrike said on February 9, 2017 at 8:22 a.m.

I actually think her story mode model looks superior to this one. Something about her eyes just doesn't look right. Well whatever, I'm sure a moder will swap the faces with the original. Having said that she looks fun though, think I may finally have a secondary.

#59
Mopz said on February 9, 2017 at 8:22 a.m.

I actually like her design... But I dunno, I find this reveal a bit dull. :/ (not becoz a huge majority has predicted that its gonna be her)

Maybe coz her moves look boring?... Maybe I need a couple more rewatches.

#60
MarvinVelasco12 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:22 a.m.

Her costumes look dope, and she seems interesting to play, i'll give her a shot.

#61
Rupix15 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:22 a.m.

They totally changed her face lol. Now this one looks a lot better than the chubby, round face she has as Helen :)
Btw, that seducing win pose tho.... xD

Also, is it me or am I getting Decapre vibes when I see her gameplay?

i would have loved to hear her theme. the rap may have worked with mkx trailer but not here

#67
RohaktheMultiVerse said on February 9, 2017 at 8:24 a.m.

Will all these split personalities Helen/Kolin, I wouldn't be surprised if Elsa is in the mix. Ice powers & mvc crossover soon, go figure.

FAXtotheMAX said on February 9, 2017 at 8:24 a.m.

OH DAMN! Now that's a sick beat! Kolin also pretty cool.

WTF did they do to her face? There was nothing wrong with how she looked in SF5's ending.

Helen/Kolin 😍😍 too cool😍😍

wheres the swimsuit we all know what happens when it gets icy cold it gets really nippy

#73
Rupix15 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:27 a.m.

She looks more fitting as Kolin now, as there's no way that Kolin would have a chubby baby face as Helen is in S1.

#74
Projectjustice said on February 9, 2017 at 8:27 a.m.

The song is great and kolin looks amazing! Finally a female character im interested in picking up!

#75
cris25 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:27 a.m.

Her face looks terrible.

I was expecting a freeze v-trigger, so she could continue to combo from a frozen opponent, much like Sub-zero.

The other moves look interesting though.

#76
Gellus said on February 9, 2017 at 8:27 a.m.

She looks pretty "cool" (hahahaha.... Sorry)

The face needs some work tho, i'm going to assume it's still unfinished

#77
ElHiznahn said on February 9, 2017 at 8:28 a.m.

LOL at everyone complaining about her new face. Her new face is better and less cartoony than her story mode one.

#78
XxAngelChunLixX said on February 9, 2017 at 8:29 a.m.

Is it okay if I still call her Helen?

But omg instant main! I was hype for her to be playable since she was teased in the story trailer and I thought it was Cammy. I adore her! It's a wrap! I suggest y'all dress warm loves, a blizzard is coming. 😩😩😩❤️

#79
septic said on February 9, 2017 at 8:29 a.m.

Prefer the new look (face) more western and less doll like. Story outfit looks aces (high res pics on Capcom blog), though how you can have a nostalgia outfit for a character that has never been playable before is hilarious. Capcom cashing in.

#80
Chuck_Remixed said on February 9, 2017 at 8:29 a.m.

Don't like the face change. Gameplay looks cool tho.

#81
Zephyrus said on February 9, 2017 at 8:30 a.m.

*crossfing fingers for Alex and Nash buffs*
*hopes capcom makes FANG SSS tier so people shut up about him and stop constantly underrating the character*

She looks pretty fun. And so far 4 nostalgia costumes confirmed while 2 are actually in game. Hopefully Claw gets one. Extremely hopeful actually

She really does look badass though....

hahah do you really assume things will be redone at this point?

#86
bboysoy said on February 9, 2017 at 8:31 a.m.

OMG! the only complain is that her face isn't cute enough. Really guys? Are Russians faces suppose to look American.

#87
QuikStiks said on February 9, 2017 at 8:32 a.m.

...But wouldn't it still be deemed as "nostalgia" when she clearly wore that outfit in 3S alongside Gill?

#88

lol last day of the month

#89
Opulence said on February 9, 2017 at 8:32 a.m.

lol they gave her plastic surgery because of all the complains her face got. Personally I prefered her old chipmunk cheeks, now she looks like a different person. I'm probably going to pass on her, rekkas are so bleh to me.

#90
Sage_Neon said on February 9, 2017 at 8:32 a.m.

She actually looks really good! Looks like she belongs in a mk/injustice game interesting

No surprise there though, unfortunately.

Capcom named her Kolin because when she's done with you, the doctors will be examining your Rectum

I like her.

1 likable, (technically) new character down.

4 to go.

#96
Rupix15 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:34 a.m.

Her face kinda resembles Gill somehow, and i really like it this way ^^

#97
ScoobieisDope said on February 9, 2017 at 8:35 a.m.

It's no biggie, and I'm not dying over it, but Kolin's face looked way better in the Story mode. They tweaked it a little too much here. =(

#98
Xar5000 said on February 9, 2017 at 8:35 a.m.
