Yet another fan favorite has been confirmed for the ever growing roster of Street Fighter 5, the fifth mainline entry in Capcom’s flagship fighting game franchise that is due to release early next year. In this case, the character is R. Mika from Street Fighter Alpha 3.
Her return to Street Fighter 5 sees a fair bit of changes to her movesets, which makes sense considering the vast evolution that the mechanics of the series have undergone since Alpha 3 and now. Her new moves are:
V-Skill: Mic Performance: R. Mika pulls out her trusty microphone and gives a heart-pumping monologue to the crowd. The longer the buttons are held down, the more powerful her normal and special throws become. During her monologue state, she is able to absorb one hit from the opponent and can also cancel the speech at any time by letting go of the buttons, causing her to fling the mic at the opponent.
V-Trigger: Nadeshiko (3 Variations): Depending on the direction held during the V-Trigger activation, R. Mika’s faithful tag-team partner will deliver a surprising, high flying attack at the opponent from different angles: neutral (body splash from above), hold back (dropkick from the front), hold forward (dropkick from behind).
Street Fighter 5 will launch exclusively on PS4 and PC early next year. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage and information.
