Street Fighter Alpha 3's Karin has become the latest addition to Street Fighter V's roster after Capcom revealed her during Tokyo Games Show.

Capcom revealed that Karin is the latest addition to Street Fighter V’s playable roster.

Karin made her playable debut in Street Fighter Alpha 3. Her story is closely linked with Sakura’s, who has not been confirmed for the game just yet.

Street Fighter V will launch with 16 playable characters; Karin’s announcement brings the total number of known characters to 13.

Karin’s official description is as follows:

“Behind Karin’s golden locks and razer-sharp wit lies a true martial artist trained in the unique “Kanzuki style” of fighting. Utilizing her new dash move allows her to close distances quickly with her opponents and go in for quick high-low attacks or throws. Her well-rounded skills allow her to possess a full set of tools and deploy a wide array of strikes and maneuvers that will have opponents feeling the pressure. For fans who’ve longed for her return, or for those just looking for a quick fighter with lots of versatility, Karin is a welcome addition to Street Fighter V!”

The roster updates are coming thick and fast. Capcom previously said that it will announce another character at the Brazil Game Show, which takes place in October.

Street Fighter V will be released in 2016.
