You can now play as the vocaloid idol, Hatsune Miku, in Capcom’s PC version of Street Fighter 5. The iconic character from Sega has been ported over to Street Fighter as a replacement for R. Mika.
The mod is available for download right now from the TerryXX Patreon page.
The mod file is contained within a RAR pack, along with instructions on how to install the character. It’s no where near as big as some of the other more impressive and technically challenging mods. In fact, Hatsune Miku’s replacement mod for R. Mika only clocks in at 2.58MB.
Miku sports her classic futuristic schoolgirl outfit, replete with a dark navy skirt, matching arm sleeves, a white sleeveless tank top, a cobalt tie and matching hair. She even still sports the headset from the vocaloid games.
You can see what the mod is like in action with the video capture below from YouTuber BlitzMightyN7.
Obviously, Miku’s conversion doesn’t look anywhere near as good as the other cast of characters in Street Fighter V. The mesh is low-poly by comparison, there is no jiggle physics, and most obviously her hair seems to have a life all its own.
If you’re looking for a model that matches the rest of the visual continuity of the other Street Fighter V characters, you might want to give this one a pass. However, if you’re a huge Hatsune Miku fan and you absolutely must have the popular J-Pop icon running around in your version of the game, then nothing is stopping you from getting your hands on the character.
Certain mods for the game have obviously proven to be more popular than others, so it’ll be interesting to see what else they toss out there for the second season of Street Fighter. Perhaps something from Warframe? I would love to see how the Dead or Alive cast stacks up in the Unreal-powered version of Street Fighter.
