You can check out Falke's gameplay trailer below alongside several screenshots and GIFs of her. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is now available on PC and PS4. The newest addition to the ever-expanding roster is the mysterious Falke. This connection gives the pairing a brother and sister-esque relationship, which spells trouble for the fighters stood in their path of destruction.

Ed was the first character in Street Fighter 5 to feature such inputs, and now Falke is the second.

Falke appears to have good ranged options, and her staff seems pretty versatile.

Early this morning, a blog post on the Capcom Unity blog for Street Fighter V went up with the headline "Falke, the Guardian Hawk, Vaults into Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on April 24!".

Falke herself fits into the Street Fighter story as someone who was rescued by character Ed, after suffering for years at her tormentors' hands.

Air (Psycho Feder) - Falke shoots a projectile at a diagonal angle downwards from the air. The EX versions of these special moves are likely performed by hitting three punches and three kicks, respectively. The character stores her Psycho Power until the player releases the punch button, when she releases her power in one of three ways. "Pressing two kicks is Katapult, which sees Falke pole vaulting towards the opponent in a kick motion". This move can then be cancelled by a "variety of normal moves and can also be used to absorb projectiles".

Falke can use Psycho Power by infusing it into weapons, like her staff Harmony. Finally, pressing HP+HK in the air will cause Falke to use Psycho Jaeger, a stronger Psycho Feder that can ricochet off the ground. Upon activation, Falke will immediately twirl around hitting the opponent into the air, which she then follows up with a surge of Psycho Power.

Falke's V-Skill is called Psycho Trombe and during it she spins her staff in front of her. If you press hard punch and hard kick during this, Psycho Sturm will be activated to deliver a sweeping staff attack that can be cancelled for combo extensions. As expected from a Critical Art, it's over the top and flashy.
