It’s in the cards: Rose returns in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition April 19 | Destructoid

In all my years – decades – of playing Street Fighter, there is no one character I have put more time into than gaming’s foremost fortune-teller, Rose. From her first appearance in 1995’s Street Fighter Alpha, to her great, EVO-winning comeback in 2008’s Street Fighter IV, I’ve poured months’ worth of time into the Italian psychic. And that clock is set to keep turning, with Rose’s long-awaited return in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition.
As revealed during yesterdays’ “Street Fighter V Spring Update” live stream, Rose’s high-fashion heels are set to come click-clacking into battle on April 19. The solemn, tragic diva will return to the ring armed with her trusty scarf, her mastery of Soul Power, and more than a few tubs of hair gel.
Notably, for the first time, Rose will truly use the power of the Tarot in battle, as her V-Skill I ability will afford her the use of a selection of cards, which can be used to buff herself or apply de-buffs to he opponent. This mechanic alone offers Rose a tactical depth that is missing from so many fighters on the SFV roster, welcome creativity that bodes well for the design of future iterations in the franchise.
