Street Fighter V Gets Kolin on February 28, Watch Her Debut Trailer

February 9, 2017 Written by Jason Dunning

Capcom announced today that Kolin (pronounced like Jolene) is the next Street Fighter V Season 2 character. She’ll be available on February 28, along with her Story, Premium Battle, and Nostalgia costumes.

Making her first appearance in Street Fighter III, Kolin has been given the power of ice, and “her fight style is augmented with frigid blasts and deadly icicles that can freeze the heart of even the most hot-blooded street fighter.” Here’s what to expect from her V-Skill, V-Trigger, and Critical Art:

V-Skill

  • Kolin’s unique counter allows her to deflect and automatically punish incoming moves with ease.

V-Trigger

  • With a full V-meter, Kolin can slam the ground twice with her foot, each time shooting out a path of sharp icicles across the floor. In addition to damage and stun, this move freezes the opponent’s stun gauge. While in this special state, the stun gauge will not deplete and if Kolin is successful in stunning the opponent, they will be frozen in place.

Critical Art

  • Kolin dashes forward with a slice of her hand. If the attack connects, she’ll continue summoning large icicles from the ground, throwing the opponent into the air and shattering the ice to drop them to the ground.

If you purchase the Season 2 Character Pass for £24.99/€29.99/$29.99, you’ll receive access to Akuma, Kolin, and four additional brand new fighters to be announced later this year.

Judging by this statement from Capcom, the upcoming Season 2 characters will release every month:

We also want to let you know too, expect to hear more from us about each of the remaining four characters every other month beginning in February. That said, in months where we won’t have any new character info, we will have new information and content to talk about. As previously mentioned, we have been analyzing player performance since the Season 2 balance changes. At this time, we can confirm additional changes are in the works to bring characters in-line with how we envision them to perform. We can’t share all of the details quite yet, but we are anticipating an announcement early March.

As revealed in Capcom’s financial reportStreet Fighter V sold 1.5 million copies in 2016.
