A few weeks ago, Street Fighter fans the world over were jumped for joy when wrestler Rainbow Mika, or R.Mika for short, would be appearing in Street Fighter V, her first appearance since her debut in Street Fighter Alpha 3. Much like Dan Hibiki, R.Mika’s moves were known as being somewhat comical in both names and execution, and based on a new video for the game, that looks to be the case in Street Fighter V, though in this case the move is powerful to boot.
In this video from YouTuber Khaos Gaming shows, which you can check out below, R.Mika has a V-Skill (a new system for the game) in which she pulls out a microphone, which she then uses to give a speech, as wrestlers are wont to do. The longer the player holds the button, the longer the speech goes on for, a the maximum being 16 seconds. What makes this interesting is that the longer the speech goes on for, the more powerful she becomes, to the point that it’s possible to K.O. an opponent with a full health meter in as little as two hits. Yes, you read that right; two hits.
Now granted, while this is very powerful, it is important to know that the chances of this move being pulled off in serious competitive play are very low, as no player is going to stick around as R.Mika makes her speech. Still, it is a nice little move, and it reflects the character’s personality perfectly. You can try out R.Mika and the rest of the cast when Street Fighter V releases March of next year for PlayStation 4 and PC.
