With the dust settling on Street Fighter 5 Season 5's most recent content release, fans are starting to look toward the release of the next DLC character, Rose, and are anxiously awaiting her arrival. Capcom is likely aware of this, as the company has been consistently sharing bits of information and glimpses at the upcoming fighter on social media as a means to appease the masses while they wait.

In their latest Rose-centric tweet, Capcom gives followers a behind-the-scenes look at the motion capture work that has been done for one of the Street Fighter Alpha series contender's most important moves. This time, we are shown how Rose's Soul Spiral was recreated here in Street Fighter 5.

"Even older moves need to be recreated in #SFV with the help of the talented motion capture actors!" the official Street Fighter Twitter page writes. "Rose's Soul Spark looks future proof! ⚡"

The quick clip shows the motion capture actor fully performing the special move as it appears now in Street Fighter 5. They do a full spin, then reach out their arm to create the motion of Rose unleashing the fireball, and because the motion is so dynamic, recording it actually requires the assistance of another team member catching the actor at the end so that they don't fall over.

After showing how it was shot, the clip provides a look at Rose's in-game model — albeit an unfinished one — doing the move as well. Finally, we get another look at the footage shown during the Winter Update broadcast that shows a more fleshed out version of Rose, on her new stage, shooting a fireball.

Last time, Capcom gave fans a look at how Rose's Soul Piede command normal was captured for Street Fighter 5. This attack proved even more dynamic than her Soul Spark and required the assistance of two works to be filmed.
