R. Mika Wrestles Her Way to Street Fighter V
Capcom's fan favorite, scantily clad female wrestler makes her long-awaited return in this new trailer for Street Fighter V.
After the decades we've spent with Zangief as Street Fighter's top wrestler, the Red Cyclone has passed the torch to his longtime fan, Rainbow Mika. This bouncy wrestler is joined by her tag team partner, Yamato Nadeshiko. As a result, R. Mika is one of the only combatants in Street Fighter history to have an additional character come out and assist during the fight. Nadeshiko will join in for R. Mika's special tag team moves, including a butt-stomp that would make Naomi Uso proud. R. Mika is all about sneaky attacks and punishing command grab combos. Fans of Zangief and Abel will definitely take to R. Mika's unorthodox style.
Capcom has said that Street Fighter V will launch with 16 characters on its starting roster, which includes four all-new combatants. We should note that Street Fighter IV started off with a core roster of 19: Abel, C. Viper, Rufus, El Fuerte, Seth, Gouken, Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, E. Honda, Blanka, Zangief, Guile, Dhalsim, Balrog, Vega, Sagat, M. Bison and Akuma. So far, the only fighters revealed for Street Fighter V include Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Birdie, Cammy, M. Bison, Nash, Necalli, Vega and now R. Mika. This means we've still got three new characters to meet and three classic characters making their returns. Since we were right about R. Mika, we're guessing that Karen is the next female being added to the roster. As for the other two returning characters, they're likely Urien, Alex, Blanka or some other classic fighter from Street Fighter II.
Street Fighter V will launch for PC and PS4 in the spring of 2016 with cross-play functionality between both versions.
