Just a few short days after revealing Rashid in the United Arab Emirates, Capcom has unveiled yet another character in the ever-growing Street Fighter V cast: Karin. This news comes courtesy of photos taken by Evil Geniuses’ PR Balrog and K-Brad, and Anna Sakagawa, all of whom were present for the stage presentation at Tokyo Game Show.

After debuting in Street Fighter Alpha 3, Karin would go on to make only one more playable appearance in a fighting game, the heavily panned Capcom Fighting Jam. Hardcore fans have been waiting ages for her to return, and they finally have their wish with Street Fighter V.

Karin’s official trailer and screenshots, a tiny bit of additional gameplay from the show floor, and her entire movelist can be found below. Please note that everything you see here is subject to change between now and the game’s release next year.
