Today, Capcom hosted a file Street Fighter V Summer 2021 update, and it was full of completely new information. We took an in-depth look at Oro and Akira, as well as the final reveal Street Fighter V DLC character, Luke. After Vicious and Tasty Steve opened the event with a quick preview, we broke off with director Takayuki Nakayama and producer Shuhei Matsumoto.
The show started with Oro, the hermit turtle from Street Fighter III. His skill-V is Onibi, which was officially from Yagyodama Street Fighter IIIA slow-moving projectile that tracks an opponent. V-Skill II is Minomushi, a short jump that can be followed up with a hit or kick button for two unique attacks. A variation of the punch is an overhead press, and the kick is a small, safe attack on the block. V-Skill I is designed for those who prefer to play from a distance, while V-Skill II is for those who enjoy closer offensive gameplay.
Oro’s V-Trigger I is a Manrikitan, which gives him access to a command grab and an aerial throw. The former can be canceled after some normal and special moves. V-Trigger II is Tengu Stone, Oro’s most famous move from Street Fighter III. After activation, three random objects appear above his head that follow the opponent after Oro attacks. By pressing down after activation, he can summon five things instead. Sometimes rare items appear randomly with additional abilities. This also allows Oro to obtain new combos and chains that are not normally possible. For example, after his big appearance he can follow the Tengu stones with his monetary art.
Overall, Oro seems like a fun character with crazy navigation options, like his double jump. It might end up being a mixed monster.
Hold the turtle, hold these two hands
After Oro, we got a look at another upcoming DLC character, Akira from competing schools. Akira is similar to Karen because she is a very impulsive-oriented character. However, it also has a lot of unique tools and options that separate it from other similar offensive characters.
Akira gets a new stage called Rival Riverside, which is located outside Gedo High School – the main venue of it competing schools. In the background are two other characters from that series, Edge and Gan. Akira has a fireball type action, great action, and kick with several different endings depending on which button was pressed. Her V-Skill I skill is Kiko Rensei, whose firework is enhanced by Kiko Kai. The EX version will bounce against the wall when hit, and can pass through the fireballs. The air version also has a different trajectory and can even launch anti-aircraft attacks.
Her V-Skill II is Tsutenda, a launcher that moves straight from something like competing schools And Marvel vs. Capcom. Pressing after landing this move will send Akira flying right past the opponent where she can perform additional moves in the air. It also has a unique ending movement in this case. She’s the only character who has this kind of airy narrative and it’s a great reconnect competing schools. V-Trigger I is Otoko no Senaka, where she summons her brother Daigo. Before the Daigo landed, Akira was able to move around freely, providing some opportunities to mingle. Also, if Akira was injured, Daegu’s attack would continue.
can we bring competing schools come back now? Excuse me?
Finally, V-Trigger II is Haten no Kamae, which puts Akira in a special position. This position has three different follow-up attacks that can be grouped after activation, also good for blocks. She can land two of these attacks before her V-Gauge counter runs out. Overall, Akira seems like a very fun impulsive type character who can create ample mixing opportunities while applying a lot of pressure. It looks like she might have trouble getting into the opponent during some matches (especially when she doesn’t have any counter).
Finally, we got the news that everyone has been waiting for. Fans were hoping the last DLC would be a huge reveal like Kyo King warriors Or something like that, but that wasn’t to be. Everyone’s last character Street Fighter V It is a brand new entry named Luke – ironically voiced by Japanese voice actor Kyo. Nakayama was quick to point out on Twitter, after the show, that this Luke is not Same luke from the canceled Capcom Fighting All Stars: Code Holder.
Luke is a boxer, and he reminds us a lot of Steve Fox Tekken. He has flash punches, full screen shots, and lots of chain combos. Little is known about him so far, but he seems to have a connection to another character in Street Fighter being. Although this remains a mystery for now. What we do know is that this is the last DLC for Street Fighter V And that “Luke” will be released in November. While acting, it was also mentioned that Luke will play an important role in the future Street Fighter Toys. The message was Repeat later By the official Twitter account.
It sure doesn’t feel like an “ultimate” character.
Some upcoming events were also revealed. the Street Fighter The League Finals will resume in September, and a new season will begin in October. As for Oro and Akira, they will release together on August 16, along with some improvements to the in-game tournament mode.
