Desk is already tapping into Luke's potential in day 1 combo video for Street Fighter 5

Slugging it out in these streets

Whenever a new character releases for a fighting game, you can rest assured the lab monsters will be immediately trying to dig up every piece of tech they can squeeze out — especially one guy people around these parts are probably quite acquainted with at this point.

The combo maestro Desk has popped open Street Fighter 5 again to create a day one combo video for Luke in what may be one of his final ventures into the game after years of ridiculous plays.

Things start out on a bit of the tamer side by Desk standards by using Cammy as his punching bag to show that Luke can combo into his projectile and uppercut after a charged Flash Knuckle for a good chunk of damage with no meter.

One of the more interesting and potentially useful ideas figured out here is that SF5's last DLC has just enough time to dash and get a side-switch DP after hitting a charged Flash Knuckle as well.

Funnily, Desk also shows Luke's V-Trigger fireball volley beating out Ryu's Critical Art and manages to pull off two Hard Shot V-Skills in one combo.

You can check out Desk's first attempt at doing work with Luke below to get a better sense of what this newcomer is capable of.
