Rainbow Mika is in Street Fighter 5

Street Fighter Alpha 3 fan-favourite returns.

Rainbow Mika, last seen in Street Fighter Alpha 3, is a playable character in fighting game Street Fighter 5.

Mika is a wrestler who idolises Zangief. In the game her tag-team partner Nadeshiko can be called in for assists with the V-Trigger ability. Check her out in the video below.

Mika's V-Skill is Mic Performance. She pulls out her microphone and gives a monologue to the crowd. The longer the buttons are held down, the more powerful her normal and special throws become. While performing the monologue she can absorb one hit. You can cancel the speech at any time by letting go of the buttons, causing her to chuck her mic at her opponent.

Her V-Trigger has three variations. Depending on the direction held during the input command, Nadeshiko will perform a different attack: neutral (body splash from above), hold back (dropkick from the front), hold forward (dropkick from behind). It sounds like Mika has a useful mix-up game in Street Fighter 5.

Mika joins a playable roster of characters than includes Ryu, Chun-Li, Nash, M. Bison, Cammy, Birdie, Ken, Necalli and Vega.
