Falke is a
staff-wielding combatant nicknamed "The Guardian Hawk". She was
heavily experimented on by Shadaloo and was forced to train to achieve perfection. Falke has the unique ability to infuse Psycho
Power into objects and release it through them, mainly through her staff,
which she named Harmony. She was built to be an alternative clone for M.
Years of harsh training went by, causing Falke to spiral deep into
despair, wishing for it all to end. Finally, Ed came to her rescue and
they both were able to escape Shadaloo. Now, the two have a sibling-like
bond and are searching for others like them in need of help.
Falke utilizes her staff in
battle to keep opponents at range, but it also serves as her conduit for
Psycho Power. By holding down any punch button, Falke can charge up and
store Psycho Power until the button is released in one of three different
(Psycho Kugel) – Falke releases the Psycho Power through her staff
like a shotgun
(Psycho Feder) – Falke shoots a projectile at a diagonal angle
downwards from the air
(Psycho Kanonen) – Falke lays on the ground and shoots a projectile
at the opponent’s feet. She can avoid projectiles while using Psycho
V-Skill: Psycho Trombe
- Falke extends one arm and spins her staff in front of her. Psycho
Trombe on its own can be cancelled into by a variety of normal moves and
can also be used to absorb projectiles.
V-Trigger I: Staerken -
this two-block V-Trigger, Falke powers up her ability to infuse and
release Psycho Power from her staff and will allow her to use additional
versions of her special moves without needing to charge up in advance.
again during this V-Trigger will cause Falke to use Psycho Shrot,
a powered up version of Psycho Kugel that emits three bullets and
travels further. Pressing down and HP+HK will see Falke using
Psycho Panzer, a powered up version of Psycho Kanonen that deals
more damage. Finally, pressing HP+HK in the air will cause Falke
to use Psycho Jaeger, a stronger Psycho Feder that can ricochet
off the ground. Psycho Shrot and Kanonen can be cancelled into
each other and can leave the opponent prone to a Critical Art.
V-Trigger II: Psycho Angriff -
three-block V-Trigger, Falke increases her ability to utilize her
staff in various ways. Upon activation, Falke will immediately
twirl around hitting the opponent into the air, which she then
follows up with a surge of Psycho Power.
during this V-Trigger will result in Falke using Psycho Sturm, a
sweeping hit with her staff that can be cancelled into to extend
combos. Pressing down and HP+HK will see Falke using Psycho Klinge,
where she jumps diagonally into the air before slamming her staff
down on the opponent and can be followed up with normal moves.
Falke’s V-Skill, Psycho Trombe, can also reflect projectiles
during Psycho Angriff.
Finally, each of
the new moves Falke gains during Psycho Angriff can be cancelled
into from special moves like Psycho Schneide and Katapult,
increasing her combo potential and damage.
Falke is available
individually for $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money and as part of the Street
Fighter V Season 3 Character Pass for $29.99. Capcom Unity hinted that
Cody will be the next character in line to be released.
