Street Fighter V's Kolin, 2017 Update Plans Revealed

After weeks of speculation, the latest addition to Street Fighter V's roster, Kolin, has finally been confirmed with a new trailer. The frosty fighter made her debut in Street Fighter V's story mode last year, and after a recent Reddit leak it seemed certain she would be the next character for Street Fighter V's second season, which will roll out a different manner than its first season did.

Based on the trailer, Kolin seems to be a rushdown-style character. Utilizing ice-based special attacks, she gets in close to Urien before delivering a flurry of blows culminating in an impressive super move. 

In addition to the new fighter, Capcom also announced that Season 2's characters, all of whom will be new to the Street Fighter universe, will release every other month, instead of monthly. In the months where Capcom does not roll out a new character, Capcom "will have new information and content to talk about," according to the Capcom Unity blog. Finally, the team is looking to implement balance changes later this year to "bring characters in-line with how we envision them to perform." More info on what those changes will look like should arrive in March.

Kolin makes her Street Fighter V debut on February 28. For a look at the previous roster addition Akuma, you can click here.
