Now Playing: Street Fighter V - Kolin Reveal Trailer

The roster for PlayStation 4 and PC fighting game Street Fighter V expands today with the new character, Kolin, who made her Street Fighter debut in Street Fighter III.

"Kolin works behind the scenes in order to fulfill the Prophecy of Miraha and stop any who dare stand in Gill's way," reads a line from Capcom's description of her. "She is typically calm and collected, but can suddenly fly into a rage when anybody threatens Gill and his plans. Spoiler-alert, she resurrects Nash and uses him as a pawn too, showing she will do anything to achieve her goals."

Kolin uses the power of ice, which allows her fight with "deadly icicles" and "frigid blasts." Additionally, she makes use of the Russian martial art of Systema, which is all about using an opponent's momentum against them.

"She is often heard speaking condescendingly towards her opponents, knowing they don't stand a chance before her, let alone Gill," Capcom said.

Kolin's story, premium battle, and nostalgia costumes are also available today, February 28. You can see the costumes in the image gallery below.

Kolin is included with the Street Fighter V Season 2 Character pass, which sells for $30. This pass includes the first Season 2 DLC character, Akuma, as well as Kolin and four more coming later.

@girlusocrazy: Is there a version that includes ALL characters?

@Pyrosa: The Deluxe Edition

I just got the standard edition for $20 and plan on getting the characters only if they're on sale cheap in some kind of DLC bundle

They give you a lot for $20 I don't feel like I need more right now

@onionblaster: I knew Street Fighter 2 from arcades and have continued to play the games with friends, and we got to be pretty competitive and our abilities have evolved. But after a few hours with SFV I even felt I improved significantly because there were a lot of advanced techniques that came with Alpha, 3, and SF4 that we never really caught on to because we were just playing against each other and not at arcades. SFV explains a lot of them to you quite simply. The new characters are great too, and the game does a good job of introducing them, they fit in pretty well.
