Some of those moves include her V-Skill I, Soul Fortune, which allows Rose to use a tarot card to buff herself or debuff her opponent, and her V-Skill II, Soul Satellite, which returns from Street Fighter IV.

“When activated, Rose will conjure up a sphere that will circle around her,” read the PlayStation SFV Spring Update blog post. “Hit V-Skill again to summon a second orb. Each orb can hit once or ignore a single projectile hit. Use this V-skill to put more pressure on opponents.”
Oro, the wandering hermit, will join the game’s roster after Rose. Last seen in Street Fighter III, Oro doesn’t have a release date yet, but Capcom says he will be added to the game this summer. Oro comes with a moveset featuring some of his classic Street Fighter III moves as well as some new moves.
“He even keeps his one-armed combat style,” the blog post reads. “Unlike SFIII, where he sealed one of his arms, this is where he keeps his new tortoise pet in combat.”One of Oro’s new moves is called Tsuranekeashi. It’s a kick move “used to keep opponents at bay, but can also be used in combos.” Another new move for this fighter is his V-Skill II called Minomushi. It is essentially a small hop that can be expanded to a combination of kicks and punches.
The last big thing detailed in the Spring Update blog post is Akira Kazama, a fighter announced last August, and the penultimate fighter to come with the Street Fighter V Season 5 premium pass. Not much was said about this new character originally from video game Rival Schools, but Capcom did release a work-in-progress trailer that you can check out above. According to Capcom, more will be revealed about Akira “in the near future.”
In addition to the release of Rose on April 19, there are three new costumes for Vega, Seth and Juri. You can check it out below:
