Rising Up: Karin Character Tutorial — Optimal Combos, Setups, & Frame Traps

By on December 5, 2016 at 9:00 am

We’re back this week with the latest Rising Up full-character tutorial hosted on ShoryukenTube; and this time the spotlight is on Karin Kanzuki. Bread and butter punishes and confirms, counter-hit setups and damage optimization, fireball answers, frame traps listed by delay, meaty pressure, setups, and more. If you want to learn Karin, everything you need to know should be right here.

My own Street Fighter V bread and butter combo videos are by far my most popular YouTube videos. However, the vast majority of them were made during the third SFV public beta test. While almost no serious balance changes were made between that beta and release, certain damage values were incorrect and the players have had a lot of time to develop. The initial videos were made based on my own training mode findings and nothing else, and were fully featured around combos. I asked around, and have decided to flesh them into full character guides, now including a basic game plan I’ve summarized from watching a lot of pro matches. This is the full scope of my observations on Karin. As usual, I’ve included an enormous guide in the video description.

I’ll be aiming to launch a new character tutorial every Monday, until all 22 characters are covered. I intend to do the characters in order of most to least popular; next is Laura. Remember to subscribe to the Shoryuken channel, and keep an eye out for future videos!
