It has been about two months now since Capcom revealed Blanka as the latest character released in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, and it appears they are ramping up to their next big character reveal.

Capcom seems to have broken their silence on the upcoming character Falke for Street Fighter 5 in the form of a "Test Subject Findings" report across social media that appears to shed some light on the Shadaloo lady's backstory and origin.

The report states that this unnamed female test subject is some sort of "suitable clone" that has "undergone significant training and grows stronger by the day." She is also said to harness Psycho Powers in ways completely unique from other test subjects.

Falke is not mentioned by name, but it is a safe assumption the report is indeed about the brand new character. Given her blonde hair, blue-eyes and similar features to Ed (and Abel), it would appear she is another clone created by Shadaloo to be a warrior or back up body for M. Bison.

We likely won't have to wait too much longer to see just what Falke can do in the game, but Capcom are keeping their cards close to their chest for now for the new lady fighter as well as the remaining Cody, G and Sagat coming later this year.

You can check out the full "report" below, and let us know how you'd like to see her Psycho Powers realized in the gameplay in the comments section.
