It's been a couple of days since E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison were made available in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. It's still way too early to understand what type of impact these three new fighters will ultimately have on the Season 4 meta.

As you can imagine, many community members have been hard at work when it comes to breaking down their potential. We've got a roundup of tech concerning these latest characters.

Lucia in particular appears to have access to some very flashy combos. Both her V-Trigger 1 and V-Trigger 2 are seeing some usage.

Notably, it looks like Lucia will be pretty effective at pushing an opponent from one corner to the next.

E. Honda's damage is, unsurprisingly, very high. With the right timing, you can potentially get a meaty overhead that counterhits on the opponent's wake up. Do this and you'll score a nifty combo.

Although Poison appears to have a hurtbox on her whip, her range is exceptionally good. Her damage also looks to be quite potent as well.
