Sakura’s Rival Karin Joins Street Fighter V Roster

A new challenger as arrived or rather an Alpha 3 character returns. Karin Kanzuki has been brought back to Street Fighter V and still sporting the same prestige fighting style that she created herself called Kanzuki-ryū kakutōjutsu. Kanzuki is one of the most powerful fighters in the series and I am not just talking about her skills in the game, but more from what I read in the Manga. Before I get into that, lets check out the preview.


It is going to be tough to get away from those close range attacks, but it will be fun in combat. Her new dash moves will grant you the advantage to get in close for quick high-low attacks or throws. You will feel the pressure as you deal with Karin’s well rounded skill in hand to hand combat utilizing a full set of tools to deploy a wide array of strikes and maneuvers.  I just can’t help but think about what the storyline is going to be this time around? I just hope they keep that comedic rivalry between Sakura and Karin alive.


Street Fighter V shall return for an exclusive release on the PlayStation 4 and PC in Spring 2016. You can pre-order you copies today and get access to the Beta, but it is still going through its stress test. Let’s hope that stays with the beta and Capcom has it all fixed by the time Street Fighter V releases. Now the next character I hope to have a release and a few upgrades is Sean. I am sorry, but I am a fan of this character, especially since he trained under Ken or they could throw in a surprise and release Ken’s Son. One could only hope for that kind of game. Stay frosty gamers!
