Capcom has released a new Kolin guide for Street Fighter V’s latest character. The video offers players a quick overview which covers how to effectively use all her trademark tools.
The first segment outlines Kolin’s V-Skill — the Inside Slash. When the move successfully connects, Kolin will launch a two-hit counter attack. Unlike other characters who possess similar options, Inside Slash is a universal move that allows Kolin to counter all ground-based normal attacks.

Her V-Reversal allows Kolin to retreat from offensive pressure, similar to Nash’s Sonic Avoid. While this can be a useful option, I’d imagine her V-Reversal is susceptible to throws.
Kolin’s V-Trigger, better known as Diamond Dust, should offer players the greatest opportunity by far to create a lot of damage. After she slams the ground twice with her foot, Kolin shoots out a path of sharp icicles across the floor. When the attack connect, this briefly leaves the opponent stunned, giving Kolin players the opportunity to go in for the kill.
Players can pick up the Season 2 Character Pass for $29.99, which provides access to Akuma and Kolin. In addition, the pass will unlock premium battle costumes 3-10, as well as default costume colors 3-10 for every existing character. Four additional characters will be announced throughout the year.
