The Guardian Hawk cometh
Capcom have released a gameplay breakdown video of the newest character to hit the roster of Street Fighter V, the enigmatic Falke. The Guardian Hawk joins the SFV roster next week, the third character released in the fighting title’s current season.
In the official video, Falke’s special attacks and (apparently) controversial Critical Art are all showcased. We also get to see her projectile nullifying V-Skill and some sample combos. Just like her pseudo-brother, Ed, Falke uses directional-free inputs for her specials, which makes her hit confirms extremely dangerous.
I think The Guardian Hawk is looking pretty good. I do agree with the community complaints that her attack animations seem weirdly stiff and lack flow, but I have a feeling her long-range pokes, frustrating projectile game and single-button hit confirms will make her a formidable presence in the arena.
Falke will be available to purchase on April 24. As with all downloadable characters, she will cost around $6 in real cash or 100,000 in Itchy & Scratchy money.
