Capcom has shared a video showing off Rose, Street Fighter’s glamorous and elegant fighter, ahead of her arrival in Street Fighter 5 tomorrow.
A video shared by the Japanese developer earlier today shows us a little bit more about how Rose has been tweaked and reworked to fit into the world of Street Fighter 5.
If you’re familiar with the Rose from previous games, there may need some re-learning necessary in your future. She can use her tarot abilities and soul power to control her enemies at range, and she can call upon the power of tarot to buff herself and debuff her opponents.
Take a look at the trailer below.
Safe to say, the developer really is doubling down on the Lisa Lisa inspiration from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.
Rose’s V-Trigger I is called “Soul Dimension,” and it is a teleportation move that gives Rose new mix-up opportunities. V-Trigger II, meanwhile, is “Soul Illusion” coming in hot from Street Fighter Alpha which allows her to create shadows of herself that mimic her moves after a bit of a delay.
If you want to really get in the mood to play Rose, check out a snippet of her theme below – it’s very elegant!
