Capcom has released a new trailer for the arrival of Oro who heads to roster of Street Fighter V next week as the game’s latest DLC character.
The 140-year-old Japanese hermit first appeared in 1997’s Street Fighter III: The New Generation. His new incarnation comes along with his pet turtle and classic leaping and double-jump attacks. His first V-Skill I is his Onibi where he can summon a bouncing orb projectile. It’s extra handy as it can also block your opponent’s projectiles.
His second V-Skill meanwhile, Minomushi, is a short hop that can be cancelled from normals, and has two follow-up attacks. One of these is the overhead smash Kaki Otoshi and the second is the kick Eda Uchi. Meanwhile, his first V-Trigger Manrikitan turns Oro’s eyes blue and allows him access to his special Kishinriki ground and air grabs.
Finally, his V-Trigger II sees Oro use his Tengu Stone. This allows him to telekinetically pull in three objects around his head. These can be thrown at your opponent or used as a shield, with some objects even having special properties including stun and extra damage. Hold down while activating the move, and you can summon five objects instead of three.
As revealed during the Summer Update last week, Oro will arrive alongside Rival Schools’ Akira Kazama. Both fighters arrive in the game on August 16 and will be available in game or as part of the Season 5 Pass. Meanwhile, final new character Luke will debut in November.
Check out the trailer for yourself below. Oro arrives in Street Fighter V on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC on August 16.
