With Kolin’s recent release in Street Fighter V’s second Season, the CFN Portal site has decided to celebrate by revealing a collection of concept art designs for her Battle Costume that didn’t make the cut. SFV’s Chief Director Takayuki Nakayama,will be taking us through each design, describing a bit about each piece.
Takyuki Nakayama: “This time with Kolin’s Battle Costume design, we’ll be introducing things that we regretfully didn’t adopt. The chosen one is also included at the bottom.”
Takayuki Nakayama: “It seems that it would be difficult to move around in this. There is use for the long military coat, though. She is from a cold country.”
Takayuki Nakayama: “She looks like a really nice girl! Although she’s smiling, she’s still got a set of strong attacks. Because her appearance in the General Story changed too much from past works, this one met its death.”
White Trousers Ver.
Takayuki Nakayama: “This outfit is suitable for fighting. The anti-cold measures are also perfect. The mole on her mouth would be a point of fixation for her.”
Takayuki Nakayama: “This is good! Cool! Groovy! She’s a soldier, and looks like a good friend of Guile’s. Her hair is unusually cut short.”
Takayuki Nakayama: “Her hairstyle is a special feature. She is very proud of her techniques. It feels like her body image was improved by being good at extended physical techniques.”
Takayuki Nakayama: “This is the adopted design, including the view from behind. They’re submarine clothes. Weapons, such as knives, are also equipped.”
Takayuki Nakayama: “These show the feeling I was talking about! The initial image in mind was to convey ‘the story of the past.’ This is a feeling that I searched for, the forcefulness of a former solider, while still seeming sexy. See you next time!”
