Today, Capcom offered up a slew of new information regarding its best-selling fighting title Street Fighter V: Champion Edition. In a presentation stream held this morning, producers Takayuki Nakayama and Shuhei Matsumoto offered updates on the one-on-one fighter’s fifth and final season.

The stream opened with the first-ever preview of the Street Fighter V iteration of Rose who will arrive as season five’s second DLC character, the Italian fortune teller will be accompanied by a new replication of her classic Street Fighter Alpha stage “Marina of Fortune.” In footage of an early build of Rose, we see that her trademark slide and “Soul Piede” normals are in effect, as are her “Soul Spark” and “Soul Spiral” specials.

“Soul Throw,” however, has been replaced by a new anti-air special, which sees Rose keep her heels planted firmly on the ground, hooking her opponent out of the sky with her scarf. Perhaps most surprisingly of all, Rose has been afforded an air variant of Soul Spark, which launches in a downward trajectory ala Akuma’s air fireball. Much like her protege Menat, Rose can now conjure up Soul Orbs that remain on the battlefield as obstacles.
