Street Fighter V Blossoms As Rose Makes Her Return To The Series

Things are getting a little more interesting in Street Fighter V as Rose makes her return to the series in glorious fashion. Capcom has gone into more detail today about the latest blast from the past making her way to the roster, as you can snag Rose today as one of the characters for the fifth and final season. The Italian fortune teller's appearance in the series goes all the way back to Street Fighter Alpha, where she mastered the ability to control Soul Energy and by proxy, made her a deadly force to fight against. She's been back in the series off-and-on ever since but has remained a unique fan favorite. If you want to fight as Rose, all you need is the Season 5 Character Pass or the Season 5 Premium Pass to add her in with all the other characters. However, you can also get her from the shop for $6 or 100,000 Fight Money. You cal also get Rose's brand new stage, Marina of Fortune, which is based on her Street Fighter 2 Alpha stage, for $4 or 70,000 Fight Money.

With her latest iteration, Rose comes equipped with powerful moves that longtime Street Fighter fans are sure to recognize. Her "Soul Satellite" makes its return from Street Fighter IV as a V-Skill, allowing Rose to summon orbs and put pressure on her opponents. Her "Soul Illusion" from the Street Fighter Alpha series comes back as a V-Trigger which creates a mirrored Rose that performs the same attack shortly after she does, inflicting heavy damage.

Rose also wields a brand new set of moves such as her "Soul Fortune" V-Skill, allowing her to draw one of four tarot cards to buff herself or debuff her opponents. This new skill unlocks a new dimension of gameplay for Rose players, who can now decide when to play offensively or defend themselves depending on the tide of battle. "Soul Dimension" is Rose's new V-Trigger move which she can use to teleport to one of three spots on the screen to offer expanded combo options.
