Street Fighter V Capcom Fighters Network

Below, please find text contents of Capcom’s press statement on Karin Kanzuki’s return to Street Fighter and the announcement of Capcom Fighters Network. A character trailer is available after the press statements.


The long-awaited return of one of the most popular Street Fighter characters ever was announced live moments ago at Tokyo Game Show (TGS) in Japan. Karin Kanzuki, last appearing in Street Fighter Alpha 3, is officially making her highly anticipated return to the series and has been confirmed for Street Fighter V. Attendees at TGS are invited to play the new demo build that includes Karin, in addition to all of the previously announced new and returning challengers:  Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Birdie, Charlie Nash, Necalli, Rashid and R. Mika. The Street Fighter V roster count is now at 12… who will be next?

Also announced today, the Capcom Fighters Network (CFN) has been confirmed as the official community destination that will be integrated into the online infrastructure of Street Fighter V. Fans and players will be able to visit CFN at any time to view player profiles, match statistics, replay videos, as well as register friends and send battle invitations. Players can quickly and easily see where the action is happening via a global “heat map” and stay up to date on the latest game news and tournament information. Additional CFN details and features will be shared in the coming months leading up to the release of Street Fighter V.

About Karin
Behind Karin’s golden locks and razer-sharp wit lies a true martial artist trained in the unique “Kanzuki style” of fighting. Utilizing her new dash move allows her to close distances quickly with her opponents and go in for quick high-low attacks or throws. Her well-rounded skills allow her to possess a full set of tools and deploy a wide array of strikes and maneuvers that will have opponents feeling the pressure. For fans who’ve longed for her return, or for those just looking for a quick fighter with lots of versatility, Karin is a welcome addition to Street Fighter V!
