Capcom has announced that Jiri will be the next playable fighter in Street Fighter V.
Revealed during the San Diego Comic-Con, Jiri will be the newest addition to Street Fighter V’s roster. Fans currently attending the convention will have a chance to try Jiri out before the character launches next week. Originally introduced in Street Fighter IV, Juri brings a unique set of skills by utilizing her ki booster and ki abilities. Capcom has provided some details regarding her move-set:
Juri builds charges up and rushes at the opponent, kicking them from behind. Juri can choose to charge Kasatsushu by holding down the V-Skill command. During this charge, she can cancel Kasatsushu at any time by inputting a forward or backward dash. Additionally, she maintains her charge level after the cancel.
V-Trigger: Feng Shui Engine Type Alpha
Juri activates the Feng Shui Engine which allows her to cancel all of her standard attacks, both in the air and on the ground, into one another. In addition, each strength of her Fuharenkyaku attacks will remain in their charged state.
Critical Art: Sakkai Fuhazan
Juri kicks out a large slicing blast towards the opponent that hits multiple times.
Jiri will be released on July 26th, 2016 alongside three Summer themed battle costumes for Cammy, Laura, and Ibuki. These costumes will be available on the Playstation & Steam Stores for $3.99 each next Tuesday.
Street Fighter V is currently available for the Playstation 4 and PC.
