Hi PlayStation Nation! We hope everyone enjoyed Dan, the new V-Shift mechanic, and the major Battle Balance updates that came with the kickoff of Season 5. We are grateful for all of your support with the new content up. ‘now.
We’re now back with the Street Fighter V Spring update to give you the inside scoop on Rose, Oro, and a special look at the fourth character, Akira. Let’s dive into what was revealed in the Street Fighter V Spring update.
For a full picture, watch the Spring Update video below:
Oro, the wandering hermit, appears in SFV
Upon his return from Street Fighter III, Oro comes equipped with his classic move set with a handful of new ones. He even retains his one-armed fighting style. However, unlike SFIII where he sealed one of his arms, he holds his new turtle pet here during combat. While Oro is not yet playable in SFV, he’s no stranger to the rest of the cast, having appeared several times in other characters’ stories already:
He appeared in the story of Menat, as well as Dhalsim
Here’s a more in-depth look at Oro’s moves and what he brings to the ring.
One of Oro’s classic moves, the jump attack, will avoid the opponent’s low attacks and lead to a backlash when properly timed. He is also able to perform his patented double jump, which gives him a wide range of offensive and defensive opportunities, whether it’s shortening the gap with the opponent or changing his landing point.
A jump, a jump and a double jump
Oro has a new movement called Tsuranekeashi. This kick is used to help keep opponents at bay, but can also be used in combos. The EX version may allow some tracking attacks.
A quick swing of the legs hurts opponents
Oro’s V-Skill I is called Onibi. This move forces Oro to launch a smaller version of his SFIII Super Art Yagyou Dama projectile, which will bounce off the ground from different angles. This gives Oro a chance to put more pressure on his opponent. It’s a bit slow to come out, but it has multiple shots of projectile damage so it can blow through opponents’ fireballs.
His V-Skill II is a new move called Minomushi, where he does a little jump. By entering a punch or kick after this move, Oro can chain up with additional moves.
Oro’s V-Trigger I is called Manrikitan. This gives him access to his Kishinriki command throw which hooks opponents and repeatedly slams them into the ground. This command socket can be used in combos, on the ground and in the air.
Oro’s V-Trigger II is his popular comeback movement, Tengu Stone. Oro summons several rocks and objects that hover above him to use them as a follow-up to his normal attacks. Special items sometimes have different effects on opponents.
Oro is looking to have a powerful impact on Street Fighter V when it releases this summer.
Rose returns to SFV on April 19
Rose, the soul-fueled fortune teller, returns with her tarot cards in tow and new moves to change the future of Street Fighter V. As we revealed with the winter update of SFV, Rose is back with a handful of powerful new moves. disposition. Let’s break down his movements a little further.
Rose’s V-Skill I is Soul Fortune. This move allows Rose to remove a tarot card to strengthen or weaken her opponents. Each card has a different color and has a different effect on Rose or her opponent. You can tell which card she has in her possession at the bottom of the screen next to her V-Gauge bar.
The white card, The Magician, will increase Rose’s V gauge when used. Hold the control buttons and it will hold the card up and continuously gain V-Gauge. Be careful though: she is vulnerable during this state. The red card, The Chariot, will increase Rose’s attack damage, making all moves a little harder than before.
With her debuff cards, Rose throws them at her opponent. These cards count as a single hit projectile and they will also apply the debuff even if the opponent is blocking. The green card, The Tower, will decrease the damage inflicted on its opponent. The Purple Death card increases the amount of chip damage and gray life that Rose will inflict on her enemy.
This new V-Skill adds a whole new depth of play to Rose. Do you go on the offensive and improve yourself, or do you play defensively and hamper your opponent’s offensive abilities?
V-Trigger I, Soul Dimension, is a 2-bar V-Trigger that allows Rose to teleport to one of three locations on the screen: to the back of the screen, just behind her opponent, and to look behind his opponent. Teleportation can be negated from most of its special moves on the ground and in the air. Use this V-Trigger to mix up and confuse your opponents as well as to expand combos.
Rose’s V-Skill II, Soul Satellite, returns from Street Fighter IV. When activated, Rose summons an orb that will revolve around her. Press V-Skill again to summon a second orb. Each orb can strike once or negate a single projectile hit. Use this V-Skill to put more pressure on your opponents.
Two orbs are better than one
Since the movement became a V-Skill, Rose can use it at no cost. However, she is a bit slower to summon orbs compared to SFIV, so make sure you only use her at a convenient time, away from your opponents.
Soul Illusion is another comeback move, this time from the Street Fighter Alpha series. This 2-bar V-Trigger summons a mirror image that follows Rose and performs the same attack after her.
This V-Trigger opens up many combo possibilities. It also increases the damage of his Soul Spark projectiles. One thing to note is that if you use the same normal move twice in the same combo, the opponent will be sent into the air.
Rose seeks to be quite dynamic in her styles of play, allowing for a frenzied offensive style or a more classic defensive style.
“What is the meaning of fate? You will find out.
During Rose’s victory screen, she throws down a tarot card as a display of the results. This tarot card will change every game. How many different cards does Rose have up her sleeve? Find out on April 19 when Rose hits SFV.
Here is a new challenger: Akira Kazama is ready to educate his opponents
It wouldn’t be an SFV update without a little surprise. The development team sneaked in on-the-job footage of SFV newcomer Akira Kazama.
Akira appears to retain some of his rival schools style in SFV. Akira’s older brother Daigo will also make an appearance.
We look forward to telling you more about rival schools veteran Akira in the near future.
