In fighting games you live and die by super moves. In the case of Street Fighter V, Capcom’s reveal trailer for the busty female wrestler Rainbow Mika shows that you can certainly die by getting your face smashed in by her butt cheeks.
The character was recently revealed over on the Capcom Unity page where they dropped a new trailer and some details on how her V-Skills work. You can check out the trailer below.

Some alterations have obviously been made to her outfit – she’s bigger, showing off more cleavage and definitely not afraid to shake what her mother gave her.
Her repertoire of wrestling moves have also undergone some major changes. We see that she gets the Stone Cold Stunner added to her list – although it’s certainly no springboard Stunner like John Cena’s – and she also has Cesaro’s spinning big swing. I don’t know if Capcom was just pulling out a lot of classic moves from old-school wrestling or if they’re tapping into the current popularity of the moves making big waves in wrestling today. Either way, a lot of fans are very excited to see the buxom pugilist paying homage to some of the greats of the yesteryear as well as the current crop of wrestlers bound to be considered legends sometime in the future (unless they use racist language in a private sex tape or suffer from cranial injuries that cause dementia and results in them committing suicide).
Her super special is also highlighted in the video above, basically being a smashing derriere of death for whoever gets caught in it with a low amount of life. It’s hard to imagine many guys complaining about being on the receiving end of that move.
The Unity blog also reveals some neat stuff about Mika’s special abilities. For instance, the longer she taunts her opponent by holding out the mic and talking to the crowd, the stronger her normals become. I can easily see this becoming a risk/reward tactic during FGC tournaments.
They also reveal that depending on your screen position and the direction held for R. Mika’s V-Trigger depends on how the move is performed by her tag-team partner Nadeshiko. It’s kind of cool because Nadeshiko gets three different types of moves to perform, which can also alter how R. Mika follows up thereafter. A lot of meta-game possibilities appear to be present for R. Mika, obviously making her a lot more versatile than in previous games.
Capcom is still undergoing beta testing for Street Fighter V on the PS4 and the game is still on target for releasing in early 2016 for PC and PS4.
