STREET FIGHTER 6 Announces New Characters
The reveal of Street Fighter 6 has fans hyped and hopeful that the new entry will carry on the legacy of the game in a positive light. With a tight lip on roster reveals and gameplay features, it seems like Capcom is drip-feeding info to keep fans on their toes. Two new characters have been revealed at Evo 2022 along with commentators.
Kimberly is the newest ninja to join the Street Fighter roster, combining her ninja skills and love for 80’s pop culture into her combat style. Kimberly’s moves seem very quick and bring a brilliant colorful pallet to the mix. She uses spray paint, walkman cassette players, and stylized specials that are all clearly influenced by 80s retro culture.
Juri is the second fighter revealed at the panel, returning from Street Fighter V. She looks to be bringing back her familiar moveset with some alterations for experienced players. Along with these two new character shows come the addition of Tasty Steve and James Chen as the new rel-time commentators in Street Fighter 6.
Street Fighter 6 is currently in development and is scheduled for a release sometime in 2023.
