Rose might be the next addition to Street Fighter 5 Champions Edition but the team behind the game have given fans a substantial look at the games next character: the hermit known as Oro.
Returning from Street Fighter III, Oro retains his original moveset along with a handful of new moves (more on that further down). However, unlike SFIII where he sealed one of his arms, in SFV his pet turtle occupies his other hand.
If you're wondering when Oro will release, what his gameplay looks like and all the info you'd ever need on his moveset, then read on.
Oro Release Date
Oro is coming to Street Fighter 5 as part of the games Summer update.
This means we can likely expect to see the character launch at any point between Monday, 21 June and ends Wednesday, 22 September.
Take a look at some gameplay of Oro in action, shown during the Street Fighter V Champion Edition Spring Update:
Confirmed details from Capcom Unity.
Oro’s classic leaping attack makes a comeback and will avoid the opponent’s low attacks while netting you a counter hit when timed correctly. Of course Oro can also utilize his patented double jump which gives him the ability to modify his jump arc.
One of Oro’s new moves is called “Tsuranekeashi.” This kick move is used to help keep opponents at bay, but can also be used in combos. The EX version can allow for some follow-up attacks!
Oro’s V-Skill I is called “Onibi.” SFIII fans will recognize that this move looks similar to his SFIII projectile Super Art “Yagyou Dama.” The fireball can bounce off the floor at varied angles leading to different areas Oro can apply pressure. Although it’s a bit slow to start up, it has several projectile hits of damage, so it can go through opponents’ fireballs.
His V-Skill II is a new move called “Minomushi,” where he makes a small hop. By inputting a punch or kick after this move, Oro can follow up with additional moves.
Oro’s V-Trigger I is called “Manrikitan,” which gives him access to his returning move, the “Kishinriki” command throw. Much like his SFIII version of the move, Oro will grab and slam down his opponent multiple times. His V-Trigger I can also be executed in the air!
Oro’s V-Trigger II is his popular move, “Tengu Stone.” Oro summons pieces of the ground and objects that will float above him and act as follow-ups to his attacks. Every so often, a special item may get pulled in that has a surprising effect on opponents.
