Street Fighter 5’s Rainbow Mika show’s everyone how it’s done with a two hit K.O on the flagship character, Ryu.
In a recording, captured by Khaos Gaming, is from PAX 2015. In it we see the character performing a number of taunts and psyche ups before unleashing two devastating hits that take a full health Ryu all the way to the ground.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwowJV8vZMc]
Mika gives an eighteen second promo for herself during the power up sequence, catering to her gimmick as an American Professional Wrestler, with each stage buffing her significantly. After the taunt has gone through its five stages Mika’s attack power is so great she can finish off her opponents with little effort.
It’s unlikely that players will be able to unlock the full potential of this move in an actual Street Fighter match, unless it’s a Rainbow Mika taunt off, but it still shows the devastating power she can wield.
While she may seem defenseless during this taunt a post on the PlayStation blog has revealed otherwise.
Peter Rosas, a community manager at Capcom, explained: “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.”
Street Fighter 5 will be released on PlayStation 4 and PC within 4 months of 2016.
