Juri will launch as a playable character in Street Fighter V on July 26 at 5:00 p.m. PT / 8:00 p.m. ET, Capcom announced during its Street Fighter Nation panel at Comic-Con in San Diego. New summer-themed costumes are also on the way.
Get the information below.
Introduced in Super Street Fighter IV, Juri is a provocative S.I.N. agent from South Korea who goes by the codename of “Spider” and worked under Seth. Juri is a sadistic fighter who enjoys violence and loves tormenting her prey, with a tendency to get involved in anything she deems as fun or dangerous. Fueled by hatred of Shadaloo and M.Bison for the murder of her parents, Juri joined S.I.N. to seek revenge and doesn’t care who she has to annihilate to achieve her goals.
Juri returns to Street Fighter V with a brand new look and some tricks up her sleeves. A trained expert in Taekwondo, Juri also possesses a ki booster called the Feng Shui Engine equipped in her left eye to aid her during battles. She focuses on flashy, fast and furious kicks, and has a wide range of ki-based attacks at her disposal. Her trademark moves are her ki-based fireball attack and pinwheel kick.

Juri builds charges up and rushes at the opponent, kicking them from behind. Juri can choose to charge Kasatsushu by holding down the V-Skill command. During this charge, she can cancel Kasatsushu at any time by inputting a forward or backward dash. Additionally, she maintains her charge level after the cancel.
V-Trigger: Feng Shui Engine Type Alpha
Juri activates the Feng Shui Engine which allows her to cancel all of her standard attacks, both in the air and on the ground, into one another. In addition, each strength of her Fuharenkyaku attacks will remain in their charged state.
Critical Art: Sakkai Fuhazan
Juri kicks out a large slicing blast towards the opponent that hits multiple times.
Juri will be available to download on the PlayStation and Steam Stores starting July 26. Fans attending San Diego Comic Con this week will be able to experience playing Juri first hand at the Street Fighter V booth, so be sure to stop by!
We will be conducting server maintenance from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT on Tuesday, July 26 in preparation of the release of Juri.
Juri’s Story and Premium Battle costumes will also become available at the same time she releases on the 26th.
