Capcom has today revealed that the latest playable character to be added to the Street Fighter 5 roster is the ‘Phantasm of Snow and Ice’, Kolin.

Coming via the game’s Season 2 character content drop – and announced ahead of Lupe Fiasco’s DROGAS Light album party in San Francisco – Kolin will be joining up with the likes of Season 2’s Akuma and series-favourite Ryu on February 28 and may well become a go-to choice for fans of the series what with her fluid speed-based move set.

Speaking of the Lupe Fiasco album party, gamers will be able to watch some of the world’s best Street Fighter players lock horns whilst also laying witness to a battle between Fiasco himself and Daigo ”The Beast” Umehara.

It’s all kicking off on February 15 and can be viewed on Capcom’s Twitch channel right here.

As a refresher since its initial release last year, the characters that made up the Season 1 DLC drop were Alex, Guile, Balrog, Ibuku, Juri and Urien.
