Street Fighter 6 Release Date: Everything You Need to Know!

Fans of Capcom’s popular fighting game franchise, of which Street Fighter 6 will be the next installment, are eager to learn any and all information available about the game, including its release date.

Fans of fighting games have a lot to look forward to in February of 2022, thanks to a teaser trailer for Street Fighter 6 posted by Capcom on the official Street Fighter YouTube page. Finally, in June 2022, we got our first look at some actual gameplay, along with three distinct fighting modes, in the PlayStation State of Play.

The anticipation of fans for Street Fighter 6 is palpable; hopefully, Capcom can deliver on the high expectations of fighting game experts everywhere. So, without further ado, here’s all we know about Street Fighter 6’s release date, trailers, gameplay, and more.

Speculations on the Street Fighter 6 release date.

Street Fighter 6 Release Date

There is no set release date for Street Fighter 6, however, it is expected sometime in 2023. If you believe Capcom’s latest statement, then you have some time to kill.

After it was announced that the winner of the 2020 Capcom Cup would not advance to the 2021 tournament, many assumed the game wouldn’t be released until 2021. Dusk Golem, a frequent leaker for Capcom, largely disproved this (see below).

Speculations about the Street Fighter 6 System

The game’s now-completely-detailed official website has confirmed that it will be available not only on PS5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC but also on Xbox One and PS4 in a less visually impressive form.

Considering the importance of smooth gameplay and pinpoint accuracy in fighting games, lowering the game’s settings to make it accessible to as many people as possible at launch is a rather minor inconvenience.

Known and suspected fighters for Street Fighter 6

One of the many things that make Street Fighter 6 feel like coming home is the cast of characters included in the game at launch. Eight of the 18 playable characters at launch are from Street Fighter 2’s cast.

  • Ryu
  • Ken
  • Chun-Li
  • Dhalsim
  • Blanka
  • Zangief
  • Guile
  • E. Honda

Then there are two more ever-present staples:

  • Cammy
  • Dee Jay

Two younger returning combatants, ages

  • Juri from Street Fighter 4’s New Design Evokes Goth Jinx Vibes and Luke
  • The MMA Fighter and Undercut Hairstyle Expert Who Rounded out The Street Fighter 5 Ensemble
  • Plays the Protagonist and Antagonist, Respectively, in Street Fighter 6.

The cast is completed by six additional members:

  • Jamie
  • JP
  • Lily
  • Manon
  • Marisa
  • Kimberly

Most of these individuals are still sketchy, but Jamie the inebriated boxer and breakdancer is supposedly Luke’s opponent and a fan of the undercut. Kimberly is a walking embodiment of the spirit of the newcomer.

She has an ’80s-inspired neon ninja look complete with a Walkman, launches Naruto off the walls with her super, and throws spray paint cans like ninja stars (at least in the video!).

In my mind, she was concealing a smoke bomb inside a canister of Bubble Yum, and any second now, she would unleash it.
