Capcom shows off Ibuki for Street Fighter V

Published: May 31, 2016 1:58 PM /



The latest character of Street Fighter V's DLC characters, Ibuki, has been shown by Capcom. Ibuki will be the third character added to SFV, the first two being Alex and Guile.

With Ibuki joining the ranks ofStreet Fighter V, Capcom have released a trailer showing her in action allowing people to see how she will play. As a side note, Capcom seem to have rushed this trailer out though, due to the fact that at around 50 seconds a cursor appears on the screen.

Ibuki first appeared in Street Fighter III back in 1997. She has been featured in games such as Street Fighter X Tekken with her latest appearance in a main Street Fighter game being Super Street Fighter IV in 2010.

When it comes to how she will play in SFV Capcom have given a breakdown on how she can be properly utilized in the game.

Ibuki has always been a very mobile character with various target combos, but she now has even more ways to mix-up the opponent with the ability to glide through the air and toss out ninja bombs, making it very difficult to predict where she will land and where her next attack will come from.

Kunais have also been a cornerstone of her playstyle, but now players will have to be much more strategic in their use as she can only stock five at a time before she has to quickly obtain another set. That said, their utility is just as powerful as ever as she can send her entire stock flying at the opponent for serious damage.

Ibuki's V-TRIGGER is called Isshaku Horokudama, it will allow her to throw a bomb at the opponent and depending on which direction you are holding the bomb can go off after a slight delay or quickly. 


With Ibuki's release a new version of Kanzuki Estate will also be available. It will be a daytime version named Estate at Noon that is seen in the trailer.

No date have been given for when she will be released. June is already set to be a big month for Street Fighter V as it is when the full Story Mode is meant to be added. It could be possible Ibuki would arrive along side it. As of now, both Alex and Guile are free to play. Capcom have said that all future character will be free until they get the Zenny (real money) shop available.
