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.

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.
