Kick-o! Street Fighter V Adding Juri On Tuesday

Kick-o!

This month's Street Fighter V [official site] will launch on Tuesday, July 26th, Capcom have announced. The biggest addition is Juri joining the playable lineup, returning from Super Street Fighter IV. She's already appeared in SFV through its Story Mode, released last month, but now everyone will get to kick faces as the Taekwondo expert (cheeky modders have enabled her earlier, mind). Here, this trailer shows some of her moves:

If you're a few Street Fighters behind, you might have missed Juri. In which case, here's what Capcom say about her:

"A trained expert in Taekwondo, Juri also possesses a ki booster called the Feng Shui Engine equipped in her left eye to aid her during battles. She focuses on flashy, fast and furious kicks, and has a wide range of ki-based attacks at her disposal. Her trademark moves are her ki-based fireball attack and pinwheel kick."

No, I don't know what's going on with her new costume either. I far prefer her Street Fighter IV look too. Even for a character who's part of an evil organisation named S.I.N., a shiny catsuit is a bit yawn-o. I liked her poofy fighting trousers.

Also on the way in the July update are new summer beach costumes for some ladies, as Capcom show in their blog post.

Hey, you rough 'n' ready Street Fighters - how are you feeling about the game now Story Mode is in? How's the roster's size now? Who do you still want to see coming over?
