Capcom continues to tease Falke's announcement in Street Fighter 5 with a new test subject report

Yesterday, Capcom began teasing information on Twitter about an unnamed female clone that is most assuredly the next character for Street Fighter 5, Falke. In the initial tease, we find out that this test subject does in fact use Psycho Power in ways no one else can manifest.

The end of the first report stated "tomorrow, we will introduce her to new ways to apply her use of Psycho Power. Results to follow." Many assumed this meant that the trailer for Falke would drop today (Blanka was also announced on the 12th), but that doesn't seem to be the case now.

Now, the Japanese developer is back at it with another "Test Subject Findings" report shedding a little light on her background and emotional state. It doesn't give much to go on, but given the names mentioned: Kugel, Kanonen, Feder and Sturm, we can assume Falke has ties to Germany (as much sense as that makes for a clone).

With the help of Google Translate, I was able to find that Kugel translates to bullet or ball, Kanonen means cannon, Feder means feather or spring and Sturm translates to storm. There's no way to confirm, but these seem likely to be the names of Falke's specials in the game in some form though it's worth pointing out that Ed's V-Trigger 1 is already called "Psycho Cannon."

The report also state that this unnamed clone has a "case of emotional anguish" and "yearning for freedom" and they will try suppressing her emotional attachments to everything but her power and "weapon of choice" which we've seen to be some sort of staff.

There is no date or timing given at the end of this report, but given Capcom's previous release schedule, Falke is likely to be released on April 17 or 24. You can check out Falke's second teaser below.
