A new era for Capcom’s iconic fighting game series will begin in 2023, as Street Fighter 6 is in development for PC, PS5, PS4, and Xbox Series X|S. The latest chapter in the series is aiming to be its most approachable version yet, while still catering to veteran fans who have grown up with the franchise over the years.
For the roster, Capcom has gone with a mix of new and old faces for Street Fighter 6. While the company did acknowledge a recent leak of all the characters that are alleged to be in the game, it didn’t exactly confirm the authenticity of the leak either. We’ve gathered up the confirmed faces for Street Fighter 6 that have been revealed so far, which include series stalwart Ryu, drunken boxing master Jamie, and the ever-popular Chun-Li.
The most obvious change is in Street Fighter 6’s graphics, which uses a combination of high-energy graffiti and hard-hitting color from the RE Engine to deliver a good-looking game. Internally, the action revolves around the Drive System, a system of five special moves that players can experiment with to create interesting combos, defensive options, and special attacks.
Drive Parry reflects an attack and refills your Drive gauge, Drive Impact absorbs an attack, and Drive Reversal provides counterattack techniques to your arsenal when you’re back into a corner. On top of that, there’s Drive Rush that helps close the gap between fighters and an Overdrive Art that is similar to EX Moves from past games.
Brand-new modes called World Tour and Battle Hub are included, and Street Fighter 6’s two control schemes cater towards newcomers and experienced players. While the Classic Control scheme uses familiar inputs with its six-button layout, the Modern Control setup allows for easier inputs so that a special move can be performed by combining a special move button with one directional input.
