Street Fighter is a Japanese media property built on a series of Capcom-developed and -published fighting video and arcade games.
The first game in the series came out in 1987. Since then, there have been six more main series games, as well as a number of spin-offs, crossovers, and appearances in other media.
Its best-selling game Street Fighter II, which came out in 1991, set many of the rules for one-on-one fighting games. Street Fighter is one of the best-selling video game series of all time.
As of June 2022, 48 million copies of Street Fighter had been sold around the world. At US$12.2 billion, including sales of 500,000 arcade units, it is the fighting game franchise that has made the most money.
The Story of Street Fighter 6 and Its Roster
When compared to some of the more melodramatic alternatives in the fighting game scene, story is a bit of a loose term when applied to Street Fighter, which does have lore and backstory for its characters but typically does not focus too much on campaigns and story modes.
We expect this to continue, but there will also be a solo World Tour mode where you can try out different fighters and styles.
For the first time, it appears to include a third-person free-roam mode, which could be a significant change for the series.
We know at least seven of the game’s final roster members – classic fighter Ryu and DLC character Luke face off in the game’s first trailer, while Chun-Li and Jamie appear later.
Guile’s new look was also revealed in a later trailer. Juri and Kimberley were revealed in August 2022 at the fighting game Mecca, Evo, and can be seen fighting below.
The game’s entire cast may have also leaked shortly after the June 2022 State of Play showcase, with 2D illustrations of the game’s characters appearing to lay out its entire cast. Of course, we’ll have to wait and see if these are accurate once Capcom officially unveils the roster.

The short preview showed a beefed-up Ryu against Luke, Street Fighter 5’s 45th and last character, who was teased to appear in the sequel. The unveiling of Street Fighter 6 also happened to be the franchise’s 35th anniversary.
Capcom also unveiled the Capcom Fighting Collection, a compilation of ten iconic Capcom fighting games, including the entire Darkstalkers franchise. The Capcom Fighting Collection will be available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Steam, and Xbox One on June 24, 2022.
The next installment of Capcom’s prestigious fighting game series will take place after one of the series’ most tumultuous installments. The initial reception to Street Fighter 5 was lukewarm, however later updates such as Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition and Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition had a more positive reception.
Street Fighter 6 development, along with other titles like Dragon’s Dogma 2, was partially disclosed after Capcom’s big data hack. Street Fighter 6 will take some time to release it will be released in 2023.
Yoshinori Ono, a longtime Street Fighter producer who left Capcom this year after nearly 30 years with the firm, will be involved in the development of Street Fighter 6.

Playing Street Fighter 6
The official website and the June 2022 gameplay presentation clip both confirm that Street Fighter 6 will change a little in terms of controls and gameplay, ostensibly streamlining things.
With the Drive system, you can build up powerful attacks straight away throughout a round, but doing so runs the risk of wearing down your character temporarily.
While the traditional control scheme will always be available for experts, a new “Modern” control scheme will also allow beginners to play without having to memorize combinations and chains.
Fighting game enthusiasts should be aware of the game’s rollback netcode and complete cross play, which should make online matches more dependable and accessible than ever.
While World Tour is the aforementioned single-player game, the Battle Hub online option allows you to compete against anyone and move up the ranks.
There will reportedly be a number of open world locales for you to roam and explore in between battles. A new mechanism that tries to give your bouts more flavor will also include commentary as you engage in your first fight in the game.
That’s a nice addition that can make Street Fighter 6 games more thrilling to watch as well as play.
