Capcom has officially announced that Street Fighter 6 will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam in 2023. The company also released a new trailer as well as revealed some of the new game’s characters and gameplay features.
As expected, Street Fighter 6 will feature both Ryu and Chun-Li, two of the franchise’s most iconic characters, who now sport new character designs. Two of the series’ new characters, Luke and Jamie, were also showcased in the new trailer. Luke is a PMC contractor and mixed martial arts teacher while Jamie is a self-proclaimed Chinatown peacekeeper and dancer.
Street Fighter 6 is being developed on the same “RE Engine” used in Resident Evil Village, Devil May Cry 5, and Monster Hunter Rise. It will feature new “World Tour” and “Battle Hub” game modes as well as the new “Drive System,” which introduces the Drive Gauge and five different battle systems for players to choose from.
A first for the series, SF6 is also introducing the new “Modern Control Type,” which simplifies the command inputs of the game, similar to titles such as Super Smash Bros, to make it easier for newcomers to get into the game. However, the classic control system is still available in the game for experienced players.
Additionally, Street Fighter 6 will also be the first to feature a commentary system, featuring the voices of Aru and Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez for the Japanese and English commentary, respectively. From the looks of it, the new commentary system will feature a range of pre-recorded statements from both commentators that will be triggered depending on what’s happening in the match.
Street Fighter 6 is scheduled for release sometime in 2023 for the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam.
