R. Mika wrestles her way into Street Fighter V

More On: Street Fighter V

The Street Fighter series is no stranger to grapplers.  In the past we've had Zangief and, more recently, El Fuerte.  However, there was another wrestler-based fighter in the series way back in Street Fighter Alpha 3 named R. Mika and she's finally making a return to the series in Street Fighter V.

After seeing the video, my first impressions of her were that of a female El Fuerte, which isn't a bad thing.  Granted I have no experience with SFA3 so for all I know El Fuerte might have been somewhat based off of R. Mika.  Still, any fighter who can pull off running bulldogs and Stone Cold Stunners should fit right in with the rest of the Street Fighter V cast thus far. 

About R. Mika
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.
