Kolin's character introduction series gives us her background and how she plays before release

Posted by Justin 'AdaptiveTrigger' Gordon • February 17, 2017 at 9:13 a.m. PST

Capcom Fighters has released a video detailing Kolin's history within the Street Fighter series and an introduction to the character's playstyle before the character is released.

Interestingly enough, Kolin's V-Skill, while unsafe on block, apparently leads to a full combo on hit. I suppose it's not too surprising that it is unsafe considering its armored/counter properties.

It is stated outright that Kolin is suitable for players who like mind games, but it is noted that Kolin lacks an invincible reversal. Kolin's combo game overall looks pretty impressive despite not having the highest damage in the game, as mentioned in the video.

Since Kolin uses ice, Capcom should create another matching character that uses fire to reflect Gill's powers.

I love her boss blue pic in the upper right screen during the match.

...Ken and dhalsim? :P

LOL I know what you mean, someone from the illuminati. According to CFN Kolin is just one of the few assistants he has. So there could be more.

Ugh please not we already have Ken & Dhalsim.

"No invincible reversal".

You guys were so right, she needs nerfs bad. She's broken.

My Shiva will soon be here. Ice Queen.

And I guess I meant upper left side of the screen in my #2 comment.

Kolin's so cool, she can wear a fur coat at the Kanzuki Beach and not break a sweat.

People who like mind games?

Kollin confirmed Braniac?

wish kolin was gill right hand and another new character with fire powers would be his left hand or the other way around

I'll be a happy 10 percenter lol.

Good to see confirmation that the icicle dropped during the double jump can cross up, she's really looking beastly on the mixup front.

#12
bornonamonday said on February 17, 2017 at 9:45 a.m.


Maybe that's the guy everyone thinks is Violent Ken in the dlc.

Her fighting style is really not what I expected it to be. I only know Kolin from the story mode and I thought she was a sorceress - somehow like Rose. Oh, how wrong I had been. But I do like her fighting style. I am waiting for the re-balance patch and than I am going to earn some Fight Money to add Kolin to my roster.

#14
Dimensional said on February 17, 2017 at 9:56 a.m.

I must admit her V skill does look interesting to me I love counters in fighters its why I like DOA a lot tbh although only 5 got the risk reward right imo although 3 was close.

Her critical art looks cool as well (pun intended).

Her character model doesnt really make me want to play her much feels to bland but at least she is not bad either.

All moot ofc as SFV is unplayable online for me.

#15
XxAngelChunLixX said on February 17, 2017 at 9:57 a.m.

And @12 As expected lol. We know how big that was of an issue in Season 1. This is why people should wait before they cry nonsense. I'm a glad 10 percenter too.

I'll take two Ws, on ice please. <3

#16
AriesWarlock said on February 17, 2017 at 10:02 a.m.

Didn't one of those CFN profile things explained that Dhalsim is not really using fire but that his energy is shaped like fire? Didn't make sense to me.

#17
masquedmonk said on February 17, 2017 at 10:12 a.m.

Just realized, this is why her health values are equal to male characters. You wouldn't risk busting out that V-Skill with anything less. That it can counter a physical CA is very interesting though. No grey damage, leads into combo...well worth the risk of a read.

DonnieRizzle said on February 17, 2017 at 10:13 a.m.

He has been known to say yoga fire and yoga flame though. Lol

#19
AngriestAngryArtist said on February 17, 2017 at 10:17 a.m.

at this point I think we can safely say that Capcom's lore needs work :P

I think it's still a type of energy that dhalsim unleashed, it just so happen to look like flames when he does it.

What's the lore behind ken's flames then? He light up his feet on fire from all the oil he spewed out from his sweat? :P

AngriestAngryArtist said on February 17, 2017 at 10:19 a.m.

Oh man that's one thing i love about predictabos. It feels epic just shutting down supers/cas.

Shory...PREDICTABO!

bornonamonday said on February 17, 2017 at 10:27 a.m.


I'm wondering how it'll fare against CA's like Karin and Chun's with multiple physical hits. Same goes for the counters.

GensDisciple said on February 17, 2017 at 10:29 a.m.

When's Baiken?

#24
AngriestAngryArtist said on February 17, 2017 at 10:31 a.m.

When you preorder Rev 2 for 60 dollars.

#25
masquedmonk said on February 17, 2017 at 10:52 a.m.

Chun's starts out with a single physical hit, so it *should* work fine on her. Unsure about Karin. It seems there's enough invulnerability on Kolin's follow up hit to pass through regardless. It won't hit Fang's clean, I assume, since he becomes airborne. Interesting lab times ahead.

Right!?

Also: :'(

Looking forward to Kolin. She looks fun to play.

I fail to see how you go from Kolin to a more extreme getup like Poison for sex appeal.

Then you brought up Gill of all people to be fighting instead when he wears less than poison or kolin.

I guess Elena shouldn't fight either!

Hi Tumblr. :)

AngriestAngryArtist said on February 17, 2017 at 11:05 a.m.

That brings an interested thought. We can tech grab regular throws. What if there's a counter to command throws?

Dude that'll be sick if there's another grappler in the game that can reverse command throws into his own hold!

his/her vskill can counter command throws and regular throws.

But man just animating the unique reversal would be hell. Imagine laura start doing her command throw, while she's twisting you in midair, you reversed her armbar into a powerbomb. Goddamn! CAPCOM! Best fake employee again! Where my raise at?!

Kolin cooler than Kula?

bornonamonday said on February 17, 2017 at 11:05 a.m.

Indeed. I'll probably be in the lab most of the week after release testing everything I can and a few ideas i have already.

It's not just a theory...

I'll be excited to play with her juggles.

Rin_ said on February 17, 2017 at 11:19 a.m.

I'm looking forward to trying this character out, hopefully she can get me back into this game again. I'm just a little worried about Floes tweet about her... "I hate Kolins normals and all the ideas i had are completely artificially limited =("

I love that channel, I need to watch his stuff more often. But I had to stay away from it due to FNAF fans just being absolute asswipes about his theories LOL.

20 dollars for an update and 2 characters?

you're paying 10 bucks a character, lol whatever floats your boat.

MatureVice said on February 17, 2017 at 12:04 p.m.

Please, speaking as a huge SJW the last thing I'd be doing is criticizing a woman for "dressing like trash" or saying only Chun-Li should fight. I main Laura for God's sake.

#41
XxAngelChunLixX said on February 17, 2017 at 12:14 p.m.

She's only there for the sex appeal, despite her playing a big part in the story, and possibly getting a bigger part in what the story is leading up to (SF3)? How exactly would Hugo contribute? Because he's a brute he's automatically more qualified to be in the game?

And then Gill who's practically naked and has the most luxurious golden locks, he wouldn't present any sex appeal? Kolin has on an mostly appropriate (although stereotypical) outfit. What does Gill fight in again? Who looks like trash?

I pray you're not as close minded as that post suggests. I genuinely mean that.

BlankaBeast said on February 17, 2017 at 12:17 p.m.

Guys and girls alike have got to appreciate the jugs. (short for juggles, of course)

ultimatesol said on February 17, 2017 at 12:51 p.m.

-she is technically most crappy character that we ever seen in any SF game. She's nowhere near average character in terms of being original

-contains "zero skill" to play

-she's a "KOF-like" character and doesn't suit to Street Fighter's characteristic aspect.

-her moveset is lame-ass, lazy, combination of SubZero+Kula Diamond and ultimately cheap in terms of combos (20-hit regular combo ? WTF ?)

-plain and boring character design, absolutely uninspired and too animu

-lack of attribute and being broken.

-ugly face..

good job crapcom ^^ my best regards.

Endings like these really confuse me about Gil being a villain. Sometimes he's just so chill after getting beat or enjoys trolling his brother, and then you see him nearly kill Tom and Necro or Ken in that Ryu manga. Be consistent, Dude.

#52
AngriestAngryArtist said on February 17, 2017 at 1 p.m.

...well...he has two sides. One's chill and the other probably has stupid temper flares :P

Bipolar Gill makes sense to me!

It happens, don't feel bad about it.

I mean look at the post below you for another example.

SKILL said on February 17, 2017 at 1:57 p.m.

Come on man don't be stupid.
20€ for 2 characters, new stages, music, movesets added to the cast, new stories for the Arcade mode, new netcode and rebalancing.
That's a whole lot for the price dude.

#61
AngriestAngryArtist said on February 17, 2017 at 1:58 p.m.

Gill's Vtrigger on full meter if you don't use it he ressurects.

If he uses it he'll grow 6 seraph wings and can summon meteor storm.

Then for CA under seraph form he does the Seraph wing.

playable gill...700 health :P

#62
AngriestAngryArtist said on February 17, 2017 at 2:06 p.m.

HAH! as much as I was joking at him on the aspect of Rev 2. And we don't know the exact price for the extension unless I missed something.

And...wait what? LOL! I was joking the other day that you gotta buy a DLC for a better netcode. I read that as you gotta buy Rev2 to play with a better netcode LOL!

however like I said previously, I got no problem getting the upgrade as long as the content is worthwhile.
