Karin Kanzuki is coming back to Street Fighter V

After an absence of 17 years, Karin Kanzuki is finally back to the Street Fighter series.

The news is being welcomed by Street Fighter fans, many of whom had been asking for Karin to come back.

In 2013, Playstation held a worldwide character popularity poll to find out who the fans liked the most, and Karin Kanzuki came in 7th worldwide (1st when just looking at Japan results), despite having only appeared in Street Fighter Alpha 3.

For the uninitiated, here’s her biography via Playstation Blog. “Karin is the young heiress to the Kanzuki Zaibatsu, a global financial conglomerate that possesses vast wealth and resources. Her regal and pampered upbringing are what led to her high-maintenance attitude and razor-sharp wit. But behind her flowing golden locks lies a true martial artist obsessed with upholding her family motto, “In all things, be victorious!” Karin is well-versed in numerous martial arts, which she and her family combined to create a unique “Kanzuki style” of fighting.

Utilizing her new dash move allows her to close the distance quickly between her opponents and go in for a quick high-low attack or throw. When the opponent thinks they’ve figured out how to deal with the pressure, Karin’s V-Trigger completely changes up her game plan by allowing her to perform her signature Guren Ken multi-string attacks and variations. Players who enjoy attacking with speed and a large variety of tools will find Karin to be extremely satisfying to utilize.

The new Street Fighter V will hit stores next spring, for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows systems. Stay tuned for more updates!
