Unique fighting game innovations and fan favourite features return
Street Fighter 6 is launching with a total of 18 unique characters, featuring both legendary World Warriors and fresh, new additions. Iconic World Warriors like Ryu and Chun-Li, the latest addition from Street Fighter V called Luke, and an expert breakdancer named Jamie are just some of the characters included at launch. Additionally, the game will continue to introduce more characters after its initial launch, expanding the roster even further.
The familiar Classic Control Type is returning in Street Fighter 6, and there will also be a new control option called Modern Control Type. With the Modern Control Type, you can quickly get involved in the action using simplified inputs. Performing special moves is easier in this mode as you only need to press one button along with a direction.
Street Fighter 6 improves and reshapes the fighting genre by adding three new essential modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub. Furthermore, the game has a Real Time Commentary Feature, which includes the voices of well-known Fighting Game Community (FGC) commentators such as Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Ryutaro “Aru” Noda. They will directly provide commentary while matches are taking place, offering clear explanations of the gameplay. This feature also supports subtitles in 13 languages, making it more accessible to a wider audience.
Even more new features and innovations
In addition, Street Fighter 6 introduces the Drive System, a new gauge that enhances a player’s offensive and defensive abilities. This system enables the execution of five distinct techniques: Drive Impact, Drive Parry, Overdrive Art, Drive Rush, and Drive Reversal. Moreover, not only does Street Fighter 6 introduce new and exciting gameplay features, but it also pays homage to the beloved elements that fans adore.
It brings together fundamental fighting modes from previous games, such as Arcade Mode, online matches, Training Mode, local versus battles, and more, into the Fighting Ground experience. No need to worry, as you will have the opportunity to master a wide range of fighting styles and skills.
