She first appeared in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition as a cast member in Ed's storyline. The newest addition to the ever-expanding roster is the mysterious Falke. This connection gives the pairing a brother and sister-esque relationship, which spells trouble for the fighters stood in their path of destruction.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is available now for PlayStation 4 and PC. Her V-Trigger, meanwhile, is called Staerken and "powers up her ability to infuse and release Psycho Power from her staff and will allow her to use additional versions of her special moves without needing to charge up in advance".

Falke, the third character coming to Season 3 of the game, is a brand new character to the Street Fighter series, and an alternative clone of supervillain M. Bison. Falke will be followed by Cody, Sagat and the weird looking G at a later date. With her Harmony staff, she looks like she's going to be a fantastic ranged fighter with a few goodies sprinkled in just in case she needs to clobber someone in close range. Years of harsh training went by, causing Falke to spiral deep into despair, wishing for it all to end. Like Ed, she wants to escape Shadaloo's grasp. 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. Players can store it up by holding down any of the punch buttons, and depending on whether Falke is standing, in the air, or crouching when the button is released, Falke will do one of three different projectile based attacks.

In this three-block V-Trigger, Falke increases her ability to utilize her staff in various ways. Psycho Shrot and Kanonen can be cancelled into each other and can leave the opponent prone to a Critical Art.

As the trailer suggests, Falke can also shoot off projectiles, with moves like Psycho Schniede (uppercut), Katapult, which is more like a kicking pole vault move, and more. Upon activation, Falke will immediately twirl around hitting the opponent into the air, which she then follows up with a surge of Psycho Power.

Falke extends one arm and spins her staff in front of her. If you press hard punch and hard kick during this, Psycho Sturm will be activated to deliver a sweeping staff attack that can be cancelled for combo extensions. As expected from a Critical Art, it's over the top and flashy.
