Street Fighter V Urien Trailer Highlights This Month’s New Fighter

September 7, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

The final Season 1 DLC character in Street Fighter V, Urien will be available later this month, Capcom confirmed today. The official release date for Urien, as well as the September updates, will be announced at Tokyo Game Show 2016 next week.

Urien was first introduced in Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact and he’s the Vice President of Illuminati. Wanting nothing more than to take over from his older brother, Gill, and destroy Shadaloo, Urien “gains joy only from dominating others and having them crumble in the face of his incredible power.” In Street Fighter V, Urien uses slow moving projectiles and his signature Aegis Reflector to attack opponents.

Here’s what you need to know about his V-Skill, V-Trigger, and Critical Art:

V-Skill: Metallic Aura

Urien laughs maniacally while enveloping his body with his Metallic Aura. Once charged, his skin tone darkens and the next forward-propelling special move can temporarily absorb one attack.

V-Trigger: Aegis Reflector

Urien opens his arms and creates an energy barrier in front of him. The barrier will reflect projectiles back at the opponent and the direction held when activating the V-Trigger determines where it appears. Opponents who touch the barrier without blocking will take damage and be knocked back. With a full V-meter, Urien can project two barriers.

Critical Art: Dominate Crush

Urien channels energy into his arm and slams it into the ground, striking his opponent with a pillar of destruction.

As for the updates this month, you can expect a VS CPU Option, Daily Targets, Fighter Profile updates, free colors for Season Pass holders, Premium costumes will now include colors, and color bundles will be available for purchase with Fight Money or real money. More details on the September update will be shared in the near future.
