Falke is available individually for MSRP $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money OR as part of the Season 3 Character Pass for MSRP $29.99, which unlocks Sakura, Blanka, Falke, Cody, G, and Sagat as they become available.

According to the Capcom-Unity blog, Falke was created as alternative clone body of M. Bison and was forced to train in Shadaloo day in, day out to achieve perfection. With the ability to infuse Psycho Power into her staff, Falke keeps opponents at range before swooping in.

Falke will be one the new DLC fighters being released in the "Arcade Edition" [VIDEO] and her abilities involve her using a Bo staff and the Pyscho power.

Falke made her first appearance in Ed's character story in Street Fighter V, but it wasn't until the opening cinematic for Arcade Edition was revealed following the conclusion of Capcom Cup 2017 that she was confirmed as playable. Years of harsh training went by, causing Falke to spiral deep into despair, wishing for it all to end. Following her rescue, the two formed Neo Shadloo - an organization which endeavors to rescue and aid anyone who's like them in need of help. This prone move, called Psycho Kanonen, can also be used to duck incoming projectiles, giving it both offensive and defensive applications. Psycho Kanonen allows her to lay down and avoid projectiles while shooting off her own Psycho Power attack.

Like Ed, some of Falke's special moves only require either two punch or two kick buttons - no special inputs required. Down, hard punch, and hard kick, meanwhile, will make Falke jump into the air diagonally and slam her staff down onto her enemy. Falke, like Ed, can perform some special moves, simply by pressing "either two punch or two kick buttons - no special inputs required". She will be added to the game on April 24, 2018. Upon activation, Falke will immediately twirl around hitting the opponent into the air, which she then follows up with a surge of Psycho Power. Her critical art is called "Psycho Fluegel" and it allows her to launch her opponents, vaults in front of them, and begins to beat them down until she slams them to the ground. Falke is the third character from Season 3 and is a brand-new character for the series.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is available now for PlayStation 4 and PC.
