Street Fighter 6 revolves around three sections: Fighting Ground, World Tour, and the Battle Hub. Fighting Ground contains your standard game modes for throwing down. Arcade, Online, Training, and Local Versus are all found here.This is your spot to get straight into the action whether you want to battle the computer, your buddy, someone online, or just train.
Overview of street fighter 6
World Tour is a new game mode that features heavily in the latest marketing. An open world experience, you get to create your own custom avatar and roam around Metro City doing… stuff? There’s not a lot of detail just yet, but the highlight from the trailers so far is training with some of the series’ longstanding characters. Sifu Chun-Li teaching you the spinning bird kick, wildin’ out with Blanka, and meditating with Ryu all look like awesome Street Fighter moments. I mean, if you’re gonna try and get stronger, you gotta hang with Ryu. He’s been roaming the earth doing exactly that since 1991. You’d think he’d have figured it out by now, actually.
The Battle Hub is SF 6’s social space. Here you can cruise around with your avatar, interact with other players, and launch Fighting Ground matches. Each Battle Hub can hold up to 100 players, and you can play some classic Capcom arcade games like Final Fight (or perhaps minigame versions of them) and compete with other players for high scores. The Battle hub will also let players set up tournaments and spectate on competitions.
What is the Street Fighter 6 release date?
Street Fighter 6 released June 2, 2023, with simultaneous release on PC and consoles. Sadly, it’s missing EVO Japan 2023 by a few months, but it’ll be ready for competition later in the summer when EVO returns stateside.
Read our Street Fighter 6 review
After the stumbling of Street Fighter 5, we’re happy to be able to write in our Street Fighter 6 review that we’ve entered a promising new era for the landmark fighting series. Street Fighter 6 is colorful, welcoming, and just damn fun for fighter players of every skill level. With SF6, Capcom’s working with a new high watermark.
Street Fighter 6 roster: All the confirmed and leaked characters
Street Fighter 6 feels like a homecoming in a number of ways, not the least of which is its initial release roster. It features 18 characters at launch, the first eight of which are the crew from Street Fighter 2:
- E. Honda
Then we have two other longstanding mainstays:
- Dee Jay
Joining them are two younger returning fighters:
- Luke, the MMA fighter / undercut hairstyle master who rounded out Street Fighter 5’s cast and serves as Street Fighter 6’s protagonist
- Juri from Street Fighter 4, who’s giving off goth Jinx vibes with her new design
Rounding out the roster are 6 new characters:
Jamie is a drunken boxer and breakdancer, supposed to be a rival for fellow undercut enthusiast Luke. Kimberly embodies the new entry’s vibe head to toe. She has a neon ’80s ninja style replete with a Walkman, Naruto dashes off the walls with her super, and she chucks spray paint cans like ninja stars (at least in the trailer!). I was waiting for her to bust out a smoke bomb in a Bubble Yum canister.

Four DLC characters have been confirmed
Announced during the final SF6 showcase, and surprising nobody, Capcom will be releasing characters as DLC following the Street Fighter 6 release. Coincidentally, the announced DLC fighters line up exactly with a leak from last year in June. We don’t have any details yet about pricing and monetization, but we expect a season pass option as well as being able to purchase fighters individually.
Here’s the initial roster of DLC characters, and when we can expect them:
- Rashid — Summer 2023
- A.K.I — Autumn 2023
- Ed — Winter/Early 2025
- Akuma — Spring 2024
Returning Favorites: Juri, Cammy, and Chun-Li in Street Fighter 6
One of the most exciting aspects of any new Street Fighter game is the return of beloved characters. In Street Fighter 6, we can look forward to seeing some fan-favorite fighters, including Juri, Cammy, and Chun-Li. Juri, the sultry and agile Taekwondo master, is set to make a triumphant return. Cammy, known for her quick strikes and distinctive attire, will be back to take on new challenges. And of course, Chun-Li, the series’ iconic female fighter with powerful kicks, is sure to continue her legacy.
A Powerhouse Returns: Zangief’s Resurgence
Zangief, the Russian wrestling giant, is another character who will be making his presence felt in Street Fighter 6. Known for his grappling prowess and sheer physical strength, Zangief has always been a formidable force in the series. With the updated mechanics and visuals of the new game, Zangief is poised to be even more intimidating than ever before.
A Closer Look at Chun-Li’s Evolution
Chun-Li, in particular, has been an integral part of the Street Fighter franchise since the very beginning. Her character has evolved in numerous ways throughout the series, both in terms of her fighting style and her narrative. Street Fighter 6 will undoubtedly bring a fresh take on Chun-Li, with updated animations, move sets, and perhaps even a new twist in her storyline.
Does Street Fighter 6 have a story?
The latest from Capcom introduces a story mode that builds on the traditional arcade and online experiences expected from a modern fighter. Plus, it has a beginner-friendly control scheme that’s a button masher’s dream.
FOR MORE INFORMATION :
Finally, the game includes a simplified controller setup for newer players that Capcom’s calling “Modern.” Simplified from six buttons to three, it also gives the player input shortcuts for Drive Impact, Drive Parry, Throw, and Special. It also has a combo assist button. This feature seems like a great way to learn the basics, but will be limiting for more advanced players.
There’s an even more casual control option that Capcom’s calling the “Dynamic” control scheme. The Dynamic controls mode features auto-attack buttons that’ll automatically select attacks and combos based on opponent positioning. Don’t worry, purists—Dynamic controls are limited to specific offline modes. As Capcom describes it, the scheme is intended for “when you have friends and family over for a quick, casual game, or want to learn the basics of a character for the first time.”
