A few months after the confirmation of Street Fighter 6’s existence, Capcom has revealed that the upcoming entry to the fighting franchise will be released in 2023 for the PS 5, PS 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. As the company promised in the first teaser, the game will feature Luke, a key DLC character for Street Fighter V, as well as fan favorites Ryu and Chun-Li. The video game developer previously described Luke as “a key player in the Street Fighter future” who would help expand his world.
Capcom uses its own RE engine to develop the fighting game, and it says it gives it the ability to allow finer details to show through, such as the appearance of individual muscles tightening. The company also used the RE Engine for other popular titles, including Resident Evil Village, Devil May Cry 5 and Monster Hunter: Rise.
One of the features debuting with the title is Real Time Commentary, which provides easy-to-understand explanations of the gameplay of your matches. These comments are voiced by notable commentators from the Fighting Game Community, starting with Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Aru, and they support subtitles in 13 languages.
It also includes modes from previous entries, along with two new ones called World Tour and Battle Hub. In addition, Capcom introduces Modern Control Type with Street Fighter 6 to make special moves easier: you can perform special attacks by simply pressing the button for it, along with directional input.
The company hasn’t announced an exact release date yet, but you can watch a trailer for the game below:
