Capcom has officially revealed Street Fighter 6, the next numbered entry in the series, and the first since 2016 for next generation consoles.

Capcom has officially revealed Street Fighter 6 at the end of the Capcom Pro Tour 2021 Finals exhibition series.

We don’t have a lot of details to go on just yet, however, the game’s presentation is looking slick so far. It appears as though the game was developed on the RE Engine, but without logos in the presentation, we can’t be sure of that. Several closeups of Ryu were shown that show off his new character model, and we have to say, he’s looking the best he ever has.

Also on display is what could potentially be Street Fighter 6’s theme song, a song focusing on city and national pride.

What characters are in Street Fighter 6?

So far, the only characters that are confirmed to appear in Street Fighter 6 are Ryu and Luke. Luke was mentioned by the developers of Street Fighter 5 to be the “future of Street Fighter.” It appears as though that is being carried through.

Ryu also has a new character design for Street Fighter 6, based heavily upon his bearded appearance in various skins from Street Fighter 5.

While we don’t have any additional information on Street Fighter 6, a teaser site for the game was set up by Capcom with a promise of more information to come this Summer.

Of particular note, this announcement did not specify what platforms Street Fighter 6 would be on. SFV was exclusive to Playstation and PC, but there were no Sony logos in sight in the trailer. It’s possible that Capcom is looking to go back to the heyday of Street Fighter IV, where it was on every available console at the time.

Here’s a look at how the visual style has evolved from Street Fighter V. It’s worth noting that we’re not sure if the above images are using in game models, or if this is a peak at the game’s CG cutscenes.

Hoping for more from Street Fighter 6’s reveal

It’s a bit disappointing for the game’s initial reveal that we didn’t get to see any gameplay. This is in stark contrast to the approach taken for Street Fighter V, which included a full exhibition, a trailer, and a full reveal of the game’s systems at Capcom Cup 2014.

While no date was given for more information, we would expect more information to drop around the time of E3, typically in June. This year’s show will not be held in person, so it will likely be down to developers to decide on their own timing.

SF 35th anniversary brings Capcom Fighting Collection

Also announced during the reveal of Street Fighter 6 was the Capcom Fighters Collection, a way to celebrate 35 years of Capcom fighting games. This collection has rollback netcode and includes the following games:

  • Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
  • Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge
  • Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers Revenge
  • Vampire Savior
  • Vampire Savior 2
  • Hyper Street Fighter 2: The Anniversary Edition
  • Red Earth
  • Super Gem Fighter Mini MIx
  • Cyberbots Fullmetal Madness
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

This is the first release for games like Red Earth on home consoles, and certainly the first on modern consoles.

The Capcom Fighting Collection will release on June 24th 2022 for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Steam.
