During Sony’s State of Play presentation, Capcom officially revealed Street Fighter 6, which will bring new fighters and gameplay to the franchise.
It is real! Street Fighter 6 is officially coming in 2023, and holy hell am I excited! The game looks amazing, amazing enough to think this game might just be a PS5/Next-Gen Exclusive. Just stop reading and watch the trailer, more info on the game is below!
Powered by Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Street Fighter 6 spans three distinct game modes, including Fighting Ground, World Tour and Battle Hub. The experience also includes innovative new gameplay features, plus enhanced visuals for every aspect of the game.
Street Fighter 6 delivers a combo of unique fighting game innovations including:
Brand New Game Modes: The Street Fighter franchise continues to hone its skills and redefine the fighting genre with the introduction of three new foundational modes – Fighting Ground, World Tour and Battle Hub.
In-Game Commentating: The Real Time Commentary Feature incorporates the voices of popular Fighting Game Community (FGC) commentators like Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Ryutaro “Aru” Noda directly into the game! Players will have a choice of personalities to narrate matches as they happen with easy-to-understand gameplay explanations. This feature will also support subtitles in 13 languages for increased accessibility.
New Control Scheme: The Classic Control Type is back alongside a new option. The Modern Control Type allows players to jump into the action with simplified inputs. Special moves are easier to execute with this scheme by combining one button press with a directional input.
New Core Fighting Mechanics: Street Fighter 6 introduces the Drive System, a new gauge used to perform five distinct techniques to enhance a player’s offensive or defensive capabilities, including Drive Impact, Drive Parry, Overdrive Art, Drive Rush and Drive Reversal.
In addition to new gameplay innovations, Street Fighter 6 also celebrates what fans love about the franchise by uniting core fighting modes from previous titles – including Arcade Mode, online matches, Training Mode, local versus battles and more – to the Fighting Ground experience. From iconic World Warriors like Ryu and Chun-Li, to the final addition to the Street Fighter™ V roster Luke, and our new expert breakdancer Jamie, players will have a wide range of fighting styles and skills to master. We look forward to revealing more about which other combatants will join the roster of playable characters later this year.
Street Fighter 6 will hit PlayStation 4|5, Xbox consoles, and PCs when it arrives in 2023.
