Streetfighter V: Kolin Barefoot Battle Costume (Mod by BrutalAce)
Streetfighter V's newest babe shows some sole thanks to our top modder.
In case you haven't been keeping up to date with Streetfighter V (AKA the foot-loving PC gamer's fighting game of choice), the roster just got updated with the addition of a new fighter- Kolin, the 'Phantasm of Snow and Ice'.
Kolin isn't totally a new character- she first came out a long time ago as a non-playable character in Streetfighter III Third Strike, appearing alongside the game's final boss, Gill. A member of the Illuminati organization, she was then apparently his secretary or assistant. Well, time has been good to the lady, as her role as since been extended. First appearing in the guise of Helen in SFV's Story Mode, she has since been revealed with her true identity and powers as a full-fledged fighter among the many world warriors.
Aside from being a killer blonde with a hot bod, Kolin comes with skill in the martial art of Sistema ('The System' in Russian), a grappling style of combat. Her main ability though is the ability to use ice and frost, freezing her opponents and stabbing at them with deadly icicles. Sexy sub-zero? Perhaps! Her powers of course come from her master, Gill (who himself uses both fire AND ice).
Kolin comes with several outfits- two are her usual 'Russian' winter-themed outfits with the distinct furred hat. Her 'Battle Costume' is a stealth/special ops wetsuit and finally her sexy secretary look from Third Strike is her 'Nostalgia' outfit. I had hoped that her wetsuit at least would have been barefoot out of the box, but I guess I gave Capcom's devs too much credit.
Thankfully though, our top modder, BrutalAce, has already started on a mod to de-boot the sexy Illuminati agent, starting with her Battle Costume. As you can see in the video above, the mod is already playable but according to BA it's just 95 percent complete- so perhaps a bit more finessing is required before its released.
In any case, seeing it in action, I'm already stoked. The feet models (apparently she is using the same feet as Cammy?) suit her perfectly, and look pretty much as if she never had boots to begin with. I am sure her other outfits will eventually get the same treatment (at the very least her Nostalgia outfit, I hope) but already, I am seeing a lot of enjoyment to be had with Miss Kolin. Certainly not the prettiest girl, but she is certainly sexy and has that irresistible bad girl appeal. I'm sure footfans will enjoy having her press her cool, fleshy soles into their faces. Heheh.
