Female wrester Rainbow Mika is the latest returning character to be announced for Street Fighter V, and she looks as ridiculous as ever. Sporting the same revealing white and blue leotard as before, the character was last seen in Street Fighter Alpha 3 featuring a similar move-set as Russian wrestler Zangief.
R. Mika’s announcement is a curve-ball if ever there was one. She’s not the most popular or well-known Street Fighter character by any means, so can we expect to see some more obscure fighters in future reveals?
Only time will tell, but R. Mika certainly looks like an interesting character to play as. Capcom released the following explanation of how she’ll handle.
As an aspiring young wrestler, Mika dreamed of one day becoming a star in the ring, much like her idol Zangief. Training under the strict tutelage of her coach, she traveled the world engaging in random matches with street fighters in order to spread her name and popularity. R. Mika’s wrestling prowess will be on full display in Street Fighter V, as she dazzles opponents with a wide variety of high-flying moves. This time around, her wrestling tag-team partner Nadeshiko assists in the fight! By calling Nadeshiko at the right time using R. Mika’s V-Trigger ability, players will be able to set up sneaky attacks and punishing command grab mix-ups that are sure to deliver devastating amounts of damage. Players who enjoy putting on a stunning display of fear-inducing close-combat guessing games will find R. Mika a colorful and rewarding way to play.
Tell us, who are you still hoping to see announced for Street Fighter V? As for us, now that it seems that almost anyone is fair game, we’re hoping to see some characters from Street Fighter III: Third Strike fill out some of the empty spots.
