At last, we can see the next fighter for Season 3 in action.

While her specific role in Neo Shadaloo — aside from being able to use Psycho Power as a result of Shadaloo experimentation — and her relationship with Ed are not yet fully revealed, Capcom has now provided our first look at the next DLC character for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition: Falke, the Guardian Hawk.

If her dialogue is any indication, it looks like Falke has more of a mentor role with Ed, rather than a mere follower. Her staff-twirling techniques are reminiscent of both Rolento and Eagle, and her tricky projectiles show interesting zoning and combo potential. In addition to revealing a sampling of her gameplay, the new trailer shows off her Story costume in action, and a glimpse of her Battle costume — and confirms the release date for the new character: April 24.
