It's only been a few hours since Menat became available for Street Fighter 5. Players are already breaking down what this character can do.

This fortune teller fighter wields a crystal ball in order to augment her fighting style. She is quite the long ranged fighter as a result.

Despite the fact that she only has access to two special moves and three unique normals, the character actually has quite a bit of depth to her. She has two different V-Skills, a V-Trigger that summons six projectiles, and access to light, medium, and heavy versions of her EX Soul Sphere (similar to how Ibuki has different ranges for her EX Kunai special).

People are already posting tech that they've found for Menat. She is a character that definitely looks to make the most out of her tools.

After the jump, you'll find a few videos displaying some tech and combos from a few users. Desk, for example, has already found a very strong combo that has Menat striking the opponent six fierces (eight if you count the hits before the V-Trigger cancel). Ouch!

RZR|Xian has also been labbing it with Menat. He pulled out a 35 hit combo that utilized several jump-ins.

There's plenty more tech beyond just combos to be found as well. Menat's V-Trigger and V-Reversals allow for some pretty cool mixups.
