Falke, Street Fighter V’s latest fighter, available next week


Falke means business.

Street Fighter V‘s newest fighter, Falke, joins the game’s roster next week, Capcom has confirmed.

“Falke was built to be an alternative clone for M. Bison,” a post on Capcom Unity reads. “She was heavily experimented on by Shadaloo and was forced to train day in, day out to achieve perfection. Falke has the unique ability to infuse Psycho Power into objects and release it through them, mainly through her staff, which she named Harmony.

“Years of harsh training went by, causing Falke to spiral deep into despair, wishing for it all to end. Finally, Ed came to her rescue and they both were able to escape Shadaloo. Now, the two have a sibling-like bond and are searching for others like them in need of help.”

Falke has a staff that stores and uses Psycho Power in the following ways:

  • Standing (Psycho Kugel) – Falke releases the Psycho Power through her staff like a shotgun
  • Air (Psycho Feder) – Falke shoots a projectile at a diagonal angle downwards from the air
  • Crouching (Psycho Kanonen) – Falke lays on the ground and shoots a projectile at the opponent’s feet. She can avoid projectiles while using Psycho Kanonen.

Expect Falke in Street Fighter V from 24 April.

Street Fighter V is currently available on Windows PC and PS4.
