Capcom has finally officially announced Street Fighter 6 after the developer held a weeklong countdown timer that hinted that something was about to happen.
It’s been six years since the launch of Street Fighter 5 on PS4 and PC, and now we finally have a clear look at the new direction the series is taking.
While the publisher hasn’t revealed many details about this new generation of fighting games, a new brief trailer has revealed some preliminary information about the game, including – at least – we’re bringing Ryu and newcomer Street Fighter 5 Luke to the roster.
Aside from the trailer, which shows Capcom has set ‘Hot Ryu’ as the default character model, it seems likely that this will be the first Street Fighter title to be created in the lavish RE Engine, with relatively little information to go on. . All we know is we will have to wait until Summer 2022 for more information.
Will this be an exclusive PlayStation console, similar to Street Fighter 5? Will we have a global launch for the game? Will it see an arcade release? Will it be a complete departure from what we know in Street Fighter 5? Is Chun-Li as tall as Lady Dimitrescu? We’ll just have to wait and see. At least we know the move to RE Engine was God’s tribute to Devil May Cry and Monster Hunter – here’s hoping it can work like magic on Street Fighter too.
If you’re wondering why Luke is in the trailer and not Ken, the main Street Fighter, Capcom has laid these foundations for the past 12 months. Back when Luke debuted in the series in November 2021, the studio referred to him as “the future of Street Fighter” and “a protagonist” of Street Fighter, in the future.
Alex has been thinking about Street Fighter lately and has predicted that Capcom has to get Street Fighter 6 right, and not just for the sake of the series’ 35th anniversary while lamenting the state of booting into a new game of Street Fighter 5 in our lord year 2022.
Capcom has what it takes to fend off Riot Games’ mysterious project L That’s not in doubt for its crown fighting game? Next year is going to be a very exciting year for fighting game fans.
