Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition's Falke Swings a Mighty Pole Next Week


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

You can check out Falke's gameplay trailer below alongside several screenshots and GIFs of her. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is now available on PC and PS4.

Most players that we have seen talk about the character seem intrigued by her playstyle with some comparing her to Venom from the Guilty Gear series who can shoot and bounce projectiles around the screen with his staff. 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. She was eventually broken out of Shadaloo by Ed, so those characters now have a sibling-like bond. Players can store it up by holding down any of the punch buttons, and depending on whether Falke is standing, in the air, or crouching when the button is released, Falke will do one of three different projectile based attacks. Falke, like Ed, can perform some special moves, simply by pressing "either two punch or two kick buttons - no special inputs required".

Falke's V-Trigger I powers up Harmony and also grants her the Psycho Shrot move, an enhanced version of her charged Psycho shots. Finally, pressing HP+HK in the air will cause Falke to use Psycho Jaeger, a stronger Psycho Feder that can ricochet off the ground. Falke will be available from April 24.

In this three-block V-Trigger, Falke increases her ability to utilize her staff in various ways. 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.

The series also starred John Larroquette, Richard Moll and Markie Post, has always been a syndication favorite. I loved this guy even though I had never met him. "He was a one of a kind talent who made millions so happy".

Falke's V-Skill is called Psycho Trombe and during it she spins her staff in front of her. Falke's V-Skill, Psycho Trombe, can also reflect projectiles during Psycho Angriff.

Finally, each of the new moves Falke gains during Psycho Angriff can be cancelled into from special moves like Psycho Schneide and Katapult, increasing her combo potential and damage.
