Watch Street Fighter 5's New DLC Character Falke Do Her Thing

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition's latest playable fighter, Falke, will enter the fray next week, on the 24th April.

According to her backstory, she was built and trained to be an alternative clone for M. Bison but was eventually rescued by Ed.

In this two-block V-Trigger, Falke powers up her ability to infuse and release Psycho Power from her staff and will allow her to use additional versions of her special moves without needing to charge up in advance. As the years went by and the hard training continued, she began to despair, but finally, Ed, who was new in Street Fighter 4, rescued her and helped her get away from Shadaloo.

The Season 3 Character Pass includes Falke, Sakura, Blanka, Cody, G, and Sagat. The game maker describes the two characters as sharing "a sibling-like bond" and always looking for others who also need help.

Crouching (Psycho Kanonen) - Falke lays on the ground and shoots a projectile at the opponent's feet. While in this position, she's able to dodge projectiles that are aimed at her.

More details on Falke's arsenal can be found on Capcom-Unity. With her Harmony staff, she looks like she's going to be a fantastic ranged fighter with a few goodies sprinkled in just in case she needs to clobber someone in close range.

"Like Ed, some of Falke's special moves only require either two punch or two kick buttons-no special inputs required", Capcom says.

The next piece of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition's third season of fighters is set to arrive in the next week. Her Psycho Trombe V-Skill uses Harmony to either hit for a quick combo or absorb incoming projectiles. Pressing down and HP+HK will see Falke using Psycho Klinge, where she jumps diagonally into the air before slamming her staff down on the opponent and can be followed up with normal moves.

Finally, Falke's Critical Art is called Psycho Fluegel and, on hit, will launch enemies into the air, make her pole vault up to them and then knock them about with her staff.
