And what is Street Fighter without its iconic character? Ryu, Chun-Li and Luke Street Fighter have returned to 6, all remodeled for this new era. Jamie is new to the list and has added his own style with a bunch of unpredictable punches, otherwise known as drunk fist style, which includes breakdancing and a ki-release drink.

First of all, it’s the Classic Control Style that can be used by the experienced, with a six-button design. It’s a new Modern Control Style in Street Fighter 6 that allows for simple commands where a special movement can be applied by combining the “Special Movement” button with an arrow button. This is perfect for new players or those who find classic commands a bit difficult. With a modern control style, your characters can apply the most elegant (and most powerful) attacks by pressing a few buttons. A modern style of control is optional, but we definitely recommend trying out new players!

Match comments in real time

Finally, we are pleased to announce a new feature that will add to the excitement of a competitive game. These are real-time comments. We are working with FGC (Fighting Games Community) narrators and other well-known faces to get their voices directly into the game! As they enter a match and the fight progresses, their voices will tell what is happening on the screen as if it were a real tournament. In addition to adding adrenaline, this feature will also provide easy-to-play explanations. This will help anyone new to Street Fighter to better understand the mechanics to be used in future fights! Real-time comments will be subtitled in 13 languages ​​for greater availability. The first amazing narrators involved are Vicious and Aru! We will report on the rest of the actors in the future.

Let’s talk a little bit about the two basic new modes you saw in the last trailer: World Tour and Battle Hub. The World Tour is an immersive single-player story mode that transcends the boundaries of a fighting game and allows you to leave your legacy in Street Fighter 6 with your player’s avatars. And while Battle Hub (briefly shown at the end of the trailer) seems like just a space to play online, it also offers new and unique ways to get involved and communicate. Both modes need more detail in the future and we can’t wait to discuss them in more depth.

That’s what we mean by “Your moment. Your fight. ” Whether it’s new and wide-ranging ways, whether it’s to enhance your experience with specific options or drive system options, Street Fighter 6 is the future of the fighting genre. The game will be available in 2023 for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4! (Shh, did you see anything at the end of the Battle Hub screen?).
