After a reveal earlier this year, we finally saw the first footage of Street Fighter 6 in motion during today’s State of Play presentation.
The trailer featured both some fighting with characters like Jamie, Luke, Chun-Li, and Ryu, but also showed Luke traveling around 3D areas, so the game might have a story-driven mode with the player walking around environments. It also looks like the game’s logo has been changed after it was discovered the original looked similar to some online clipart. The game is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC next year.
Check out the trailer below:
Update: Alongside the showcase trailer seen during the State of Play presentation, Capcom also released another trailer spotlighting a new feature coming to Street Fighter 6: a real-time commentator. If you’ve ever watched professional fighting game play at events like EVO and heard commentators describing the match and thought, “I wish my fights had that,” Street Fighter 6 is attempting to emulate that. Capcom says it’s working with professional commentators to narrate fights, which will include multiple languages. Check out the trailer below:
In addition, a PSBlog post details some of the characters shown. Ryu and Chun-Li are obvious mainstays, while Luke was added as DLC in Street Fighter V. The only totally new character they detail is Jamie, a peacekeeper in Chinatown and an expert dancer besides. He idolizes Yun and Yang, who were playable first in Street Fighter III and again in Street Fighter IV.
The post also details the new Drive system, which allows players to perform five different techniques to enhance their offense and defense. In addition, a new more modern control scheme — which works not unlike Super Smash Bros. — is detailed, where players can combine a special move button with a direction.
