Street Fighter 6 Announced After Mysterious Countdown

by Marcus Stewart on Feb 20, 2022 at 11:43 PM

Capcom’s weeklong countdown clock has expired and on the other side is the announcement of Street Fighter 6.

The reveal fittingly came at the conclusion of the Capcom Pro Tour. The cinematic teaser showed a face-off between Ryu and Luke, the final DLC fighter to join Street Fighter V who Capcom previously said would play an important role in the franchise's future. The art style resembles a more traditional 3D look compared to the ink brush style that defined Street Fighters 4 and 5, though this could only be for the trailer and not indicative of the in-game graphics. Unfortunately, nothing else was revealed other than the promise of more information coming this summer. 

Shortly after the reveal, Yusuke Hashimoto, the director of Bayonetta 2 who has also worked on the Resident Evil series and God Hand, announced on Twitter that he's among the game's designers. 

But wait, there's more! Capcom also announced the 10-game Capcom Fighting Collection, a bundle of classic and niche fighting games that includes a wealth of Darkstalkers titles. You can read more about that announcement here
