R. Mika Slams Into Street Fighter V

A new fighter was announced for hotly anticipated fighting game Street Fighter V in the form of Rainbow Mika’s flamboyant reveal trailer.

Last appearing in Street Fighter Alpha 3, R. Mika is a wrestler with a partner who performs some painful looking take-downs with her. Lucky attendees of PAX Prime this weekend in Seattle will be able to try R. Mika out in the latest playable demo of the game. R. Mika is the tenth addition to the Street Fighter V roster which consists of Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Birdie, Charlie Nash, and new character Necalli.

Rainbow Mika is a superbly talented aspiring wrestler who fights along side her tag-team partner Nadeshiko. Mika’s V-Trigger – a character-specific ability first introduced in Street Fighter V – calls in Nadeshiko, allowing for some devastating mix-ups if used properly. It sounds like fighting R. Mika means playing a dynamic, close-combat guessing game.

Check out the character reveal trailer for R. Mika below. Despite the funny breasts and teleporting, the artists and animators at Capcom did a great job of making her and Nadeshiko look imposing, powerful, and friendly. Though the number of blondes in Street Fighter V is pretty high so far, hopefully the hair variety evens out when the game launches next Spring.
