Street Fighter V Kolin Reveal Trailer

Servant of the Illuminati and ice queen Kolin has already played a major part in the story of Street Fighter V, but she’ll soon be one of the playable fighters online too.

Kolin is showing that Sub-Zero’s got nothing on her with an anti-air parry, crossover mixups, double jump, and an ice-slide that would make King of Fighter’s Koola jealous. With no fireball and an fireball invincible EX-move that travels across the screen, she’s a rushdown character that’s strong in the air and on jump in.

According to Destructoid, her V-Skill lets her absorb a hit and counter with two quick slashes, while her V-Skill causes ice spikes to burst out of the ground in front of her two times similar to how Urien’s Aegis Reflector or Ibuki’s bombs work. Kolin’s V-Skill also has a unique property of “freezing” the opponents stung gauge, meaning that if the stun gauge fills then they’ll be frozen in place. Finally, her critical art, Frost Pillar, is a single hit punch that leads into the opponent getting impaled by a giant ice spike.

For the Illuminati, she can be surprisingly direct when she needs to be it seems. Kolin will be released on February 28th as the second of five season two characters Capcom plans on releasing this year.

Official Press Release

Kolin, the phantasm of snow and ice, is the next character to join Street Fighter V as part of the Season 2 Character Pass. Excelling in the Russian martial art of Systema, Kolin (rhymes with ‘Jolene’) gives her opponents the cold shoulder by using their momentum against them to execute various slash-like attacks and knife hand strikes. Having been bestowed with the power of ice, her fight style is augmented with frigid blasts and deadly icicles that can freeze the heart of even the most hot-blooded street fighter.

Kick some ice as Kolin when she joins the fight on the 28th February.

The Street Fighter V Season 2 Character Pass is now available for £24.99/€29.99/$29.99 and will grant pass holders with Akuma, Kolin and an additional 4 brand new fighters to be announced later this year. The pass comes with Premium Battle Costumes with colours 3-10 unlocked and default costume colors 3-10 for each character. Additionally, Season 2 Character Pass holders receive an exclusive PS4 theme.
