Will not last long now
One of the most rumored and requested characters for Street Fighter 5 for years of the game’s life, and now we know when she will return to the big stage.
In addition to its big gameplay showcase at the Spring Update event, Capcom also announced Rose̵
Rose will hit SF5 in just 13 days with its release date set for Monday, April 19, though that is not all that comes to the battle that day.
The upcoming fighter is said to have five costumes in total, though the only one we got to see under the stream was for her traditional dress, which looks like an updated version of the one she wore in her arcade ending of Street Fighter Alpha 2.
They did not confirm whether all of her outfits will be available on launch day, or whether she only has the standard story and battle suits out of the gate to choose from.
For those looking to pick up the game in its fifth year, Capcom is holding a special promotional campaign until April 29 with the base game reduced to $ 8, $ 20.09 for the Champion Edition and $ 14.99 for the Champion Edition upgrade kit on PlayStation 4 .
Rose can be purchased separately for $ 5.99 or as part of the Season 5 Character Pass for $ 24.99. Premium Pass costs $ 39.99 and comes with everything from Character Pass plus bonus grade Eleven and extra costumes.

Rose’s release timing is similar to what we previously predicted, as Capcom appears to have followed a similar window in terms of what they did for Dan after the Winter Update stream.
The Spring Update stream went over all of Rose’s moves including her specials and the entire V-System as well as some complete rounds from the actual gameplay, so we get a complete overview of absolutely everything on display coming soon from our own resident Rose superfan Jonathan ‘ Catalyst ‘Gray.
