Starting with the news announced for the World Tour and Battle Hub, including:

  • world tour – Players will be able to create their own avatars with a wide variety of customization options to reflect their personal tastes, styles and talents. As you progress through the immersive story mode, you can improve your avatar’s strength through street fights with various NPCs, in addition to meeting masters like Ryu and Chun-Li, who will teach you special moves from their own repertoire. World Tour denizens and opponents never turn down a challenge, with instant transitions between conversations and fights.
  • Battle Hub – Players can bring their custom avatars to the Battle Hub, which serves as a lobby to find matches against other players around the world, including online tournaments. When two opponents are in one of the paired arcade cabinets in the Battle Hub, they can start a match, with the entire Battle Hub as spectators. You can also visit the Game Center to play retro Capcom classics like Street Fighter II and Final Fight.

Second, we have the arrival of four World Warriors that return to the streets:

  • Ken – Accusations of having orchestrated a criminal plot forced Ken, a retired National Wrestling Championship wrestler and former vice president of the Masters Foundation, to abandon his family and business to go into hiding.

The new Extreme Battle mode enters the Fighting Ground to offer a new way to spice up matches with non-traditional parameters. These fast-paced and frenetic battles are defined by new rules and tricks that make each match an experience for everyone. The rules define the players’ victory conditions, while the gimmicks add a new level of fun, like an out-of-control bull sporadically crossing the battlefield.

Two new commentators have been revealed for the Real-Time Narration feature: Kosuke Hiraiwa (turn-by-turn narrator) and His Excellency Demon Kakka (commentator). Kosuke Hiraiwa is a well-known eSports presenter who lends his experience and professionalism to Street Fighter 6. HE Demon Kakka is the lead singer of Japanese heavy metal band Seikima-ll.

Street Fighter 6: new video shows gameplay of Juri and newcomer Kimberly

Finally! Capcom officially reveals Street Fighter 6 with trailer

Capcom will continue to invest in the Street Fighter franchise, one of the oldest and most popular in the gaming industry. 35 years after its debut, the saga will gain the sixth official chapter.

Recently, there were rumors that the company would present the game in the official finals of the Street Fighter tournament.

In the trailer, the franchise’s most iconic character, Ryu, appears older and prepares to face newcomer Luke, who joined the series’ roster in Street Fighter V Champion Edition as DLC.

The trailer does not reveal gameplay or any other details, it is only intended to confirm that Capcom is already working on the new title. Nor should it be believed that the graphics will be at the video level, as they must not have been created in the game engine.

However, it is possible that Capcom may have used the RE Engine, known for the incredible graphics of Resident Evil, to create the trailer, but it must be developed in a completely different one.

Capcom also did not reveal a possible release window, but confirmed that it will provide more information in June. Possibly, she should reveal a video with the title’s gameplay and which platforms it will be released for.
