New SF6 Kimberly and Juri Han Gameplay, Details from Game Director Takayuki Nakayama

  

PlayStation.blog posted a new interview with Street Fighter 6 Game Director, Takayuki Nakayama, revealing new storyline information, gameplay details, and official HD screenshots for the recently announced Kimberly and Juri Han. Following the epic EVO '22 reveal trailer that debuted this past weekend after the conclusion of the Street Fighter V: Champion Edition grand finals, Nakayama has provided some additional insight behind Juri's and Kimberly's visual designs and elaborates on what fans can expect from their play-styles, special moves, and more. Also check out some brand new gameplay footage of both characters!
 

JURI HAN    "The Sadist"

Juri remains a sadistic thrill-seeker who enjoys the suffering of others, taking immense joy in obliterating her foes. Previously, her main motivator was revenge against M. Bison, but since his fall in Street Fighter V, she now whittles away her time in a gloomy haze, waiting for the next thrill to come along. What lies in store for her now?
 
Takayuki Nakayama: For Juri, this costume retains the image from her Super Street Fighter IV one, but has been rearranged to fit the Street Fighter 6 aesthetic. There is also a change in the hairstyle, which I think gives it extra personality. Underneath her jacket, black tape that imitates the appearance of a spider covers her body. The colors of her Feng Shui Engine are purple, black, and white, and accented with emerald green. Also, please pay attention to her helmet, as you may have seen in the trailer when she appears on her motorcycle, since it matches her design. Her smart phone also reflects her personality and style, donít you think?

 

 
Juri retains many of her classic moves, now with different properties. Fuhajin is a returning special where Juri performs an upwards kick and then stores Fuha stocks. Saihasho, Ankensatsu, and Go Ohsatsu are newly named specials, but are visually similar to her low projectile or jumping axe kick. These techniques can now be performed without the use of Fuha stocks and can be chained together and powered up if a Fuha stock is available.

Juri's Shiku-sen (flying dive kick) returns from her original form in Super Street Fighter IV and can be followed up with a series of flashy airborne kicks. This opens up creative options for her playstyle and can catch opponents off guard.

 

KIMBERLY    "The Ninja"

Kimberly invited herself to become Guy's student, who is the 39th successor to Bushinryu after defeating his master Zeku, the 39th successor. Kimberly had an ordinary upbringing, but she's a prodigy who graduated college early and now wants to be a full-fledged ninja. She is infatuated with '80s pop culture when the portable cassette player was at its peak popularity, hence why she always carries one with her.
 
Takayuki Nakayama: In terms of Kimberlyís design, we aimed to create an outfit suitable for her speedy and acrobatic movements since she excels in sports like track-and-field and cheerleading. Pair her brightly colored gi with sneakers suitable for moving around quickly, and you have Bushinryu-like ninja attire, donít you think? We tried to make her hairstyle and outfit beautifully showcase her striking silhouette since she is an expert at running and airborne attacks. The spray can and portable cassette player on her waist are also used for special moves.

 
Nakayama notes that Kimberly's arsenal of techniques make use of her high physical strength and allows her to open opponents up in various ways. Being a spunky new ninja, Kimberly incorporates an urban twist to reimagine what Bushinryu means to her. She uses Genius at Play to stock up on a spray can, which can then be thrown to the ground as a Shuriken Bomb.

During Hidden Variable, Kimberly conceals herself in colorful smoke before instantly appearing in front of an opponent for a surprise attack. Finally, she has the trademark ninja Sprint, which can be followed up with kick options or Arc Step where Kimberly launches herself off from the opponent.
