It’s the total treat for lovers of fighting games. In addition to Tekken 8, Street Fighter 6 played fists at the Game Awards 2022. Feign surprise since images and the release date had leaked ahead of the conference. Here’s everything we learned.
The official Street Fighter 6 release date
Street Fighter is one of those licenses that like to make episodes last. While the fifth installment was entitled to countless DLCs and Season Passes of all kinds, Capcom is ready to move on. Street Fighter 6 has already approached the time of a beta, giving fans time to discover the new, more modern approaches and its more street art-oriented artistic direction with brighter colors than usual. The game will once again rely on a solid cast, with some new faces like Kimberley. If the roster has been leaked for months now, these are still unofficial characters who have been highlighted in the new Game Awards 2022 trailer.
Dee Jay, veteran of the game will definitely be back, but the trailer also introduces some beloved new recruits including Manon, Marisa, and JP who were honored at the ceremony. All of them will be able to be embodied within a few months. The Street Fighter 6 release date has been confirmed for June 2, 2023 across all platforms. A few unexpected mini-games were also shown. Note that the game is already available for pre-order.
