Capcom revealed more information about Rose, who will appear as a DLC character in Season Pass 5 of Street Fighter V. Rose’s character intro, move list, and theme are all available online to check in advance before her release date of April 19, 2021.
Rose is an Italian fortune teller who first debuted in Street Fighter Alpha. Similar to her inspiration Lisa Lisa from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Rose fights by channeling Soul Power through her scarf. In Street Fighter V, Rose gains a few interesting moves that make her a technical character to play. For instance, one of her V-Skills, Soul Fortune, uses tarot cards to self-buff and debuff enemies. Soul Illusion is now a V-Trigger, and Rose creates a mirror image that will perform the same attack after Rose does, albeit delayed. Her character intro site gives more detailed information and tips about her various moves.
A preview of Rose’s theme in Street Fighter V is also available on Twitter. The choral accompaniment to the piano and strings gives off an elegant impression, which suits Rose’s fighting style and personality.
