Falke, the next downloadable character for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, is coming to the game April 24, Capcom announced today. She’s the third add-on character coming as part of Street Fighter 5’s third season of downloadable content.

Street Fighter 5’s newest character fights with a staff imbued with Psycho Power, the same spiritual energy used by characters like M. Bison, Decapre and Ed. Falke will be available for $5.99 (or 100,000 Fight Money) individually and is part of the game’s $29.99 Season 3 Character Pass, which also includes Sakura, Blanka, Cody, G and Sagat.

Falke will fight in a fashion similar to Street Fighter 5’s Ed, in that her specials require dual button presses only. Falke’s moveset set was detailed on Capcom Unity today, and her attacks include the following special moves:

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.
Capcom also detailed Falke’s V-Skill, V-Trigger and Critical Arts:


V-Skill: Psycho Trombe

Falke extends one arm and spins her staff in front of her. Psycho Trombe on its own can be cancelled into by a variety of normal moves and can also be used to absorb projectiles.

V-Trigger I: Staerken

In this two-block V-Trigger, Falke powers up her ability to infuse and release Psycho Power from her staff and will allow her to use additional versions of her special moves without needing to charge up in advance.

Pressing HP+HK again during this V-Trigger will cause Falke to use Psycho Shrot, a powered up version of Psycho Kugel that emits three bullets and travels further. Pressing down and HP+HK will see Falke using Psycho Panzer, a powered up version of Psycho Kanonen that deals more damage. Finally, pressing HP+HK in the air will cause Falke to use Psycho Jaeger, a stronger Psycho Feder that can ricochet off the ground. Psycho Shrot and Kanonen can be cancelled into each other and can leave the opponent prone to a Critical Art.

V-Trigger II: Psycho Angriff

In this three-block V-Trigger, Falke increases her ability to utilize her staff in various ways. Upon activation, Falke will immediately twirl around hitting the opponent into the air, which she then follows up with a surge of Psycho Power.

Pressing HP+HK during this V-Trigger will result in Falke using Psycho Sturm, a sweeping hit with her staff that can be cancelled into to extend combos. 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. Falke’s V-Skill, Psycho Trombe, can also reflect projectiles during Psycho Angriff.

Critical Art: Psycho Fluegel

With a Psycho Power-charged staff, Falke launches opponents into the air. She then pole vaults up to meet her opponent, whacks them sideways with her staff, then slams them down with a final overhead swing.​
