Street Fighter 6 Gameplay Reveal

  

During Sony's State of Play presentation, Capcom dropped the first ever gameplay trailer for Street Fighter 6... and announced the game will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam in 2023. Without spoiling too much out of the gate, the new trailer confirms several new SF6 characters will be playable and reveals a "World Tour" single-player story mode. In Capcom's words, "World Tour is a single-player immersive story mode that pushes the boundaries of what a fighting game is and allows you to leave your own legacy within SF6 with your player avatar". World Tour also appears to be connected to Online mode where you'll encounter other player avatars on the streets of... Metro City. Yeah, there are some heavy Final Fight influences in the new trailer! Capcom's official website is also live with first details, character profiles, and screenshots.

FIGHTING GROUND: Continuing the tradition of being a genre leader, the pinnacle of fighting games can be found in this mode. With a highly evolved combat system, experience the stunning innovation for yourself. Arcade Mode, Online matches, Training Mode, Local Versus battles, and more can be found in Fighting Ground.

WORLD TOUR: World Tour is an immersive single player story mode that pushes the boundaries of what a fighting game is. Players create their own avatar to carve out their own legend on the streets! Players will also encounter familiar locations and characters in World Tour mode.

BATTLE HUB: The Battle Hub is the ultimate place for players to seek out friendly rivalries. What can you do in the Battle Hub? Stay tuned for more news!

DRIVE SYSTEM: The Drive System is a gauge you'll need to manage wisely and one that is ripe with creativity. You can utilize the Drive Gauge to perform five different techniques that can easily enhance your offense or defense. A Drive Impact is a powerful strike that can absorb an opponent's incoming attack and can lead to a wall splat. Use Drive Parry to repel your opponent's attack and refill your Drive Gauge. Cancel out of a Drive Parry or normal attack into a Drive Rush to quickly close in on your opponent. 

Overdrive Arts are similar to EX Moves from past games that power up your Special Moves. Use Drive Reversal to perform a counterattack to get you out of tight situations. One gauge, five techniques, unlimited possibilities. Use your creativity to choose which technique to utilize and when.

GRAPHICS ENGINE: Capcom's Teaser Trailer back in February hinted at a more hyper-realistic look for Street Fighter 6. The game is being developed on Capcom's own RE Engine – previously used to create Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil Village, and Devil May Cry 5. With the RE Engine, you’ll notice enhanced visuals in every aspect of the game. Beads of sweat will roll down across skin, muscles will tense up when used, and cherry blossom petals will flitter and twirl in line with a character’s movement. Pair this graphics upgrade with the explosive splashes of paint and the striking graffiti treatment, and you’ll end up with an art style distinct to SF6.

CONTROLS: The standard 6-button control type for the series remains intact. Effective at high level play where complete control over your character is a must. Players can freely customize their button layout, allowing for a wide range of fighting styles. There will also be a Simple Controls mode available for beginners.

CHUN-Li: A former high-kicking ICPO agent, Chun-Li looks after Li-Fen, a victim of the Black Moon Incident. With Shadaloo sundered, she now runs kung fu classes, and has become a well-loved member of the local community.


LUKE: A contractor for a PMC, Luke uses his elite military background to teach mixed martial arts. His days off are spent eating junk food, playing video games, and fighting, but make no mistake—Luke plays to win.


JAMIE: This self-styled Chinatown peacekeeper aspires to the example set by Yun and Yang, the Twin Dragons. An expert dancer, Jamie places justice and friendship above all else, defending his town with martial skill.

RYU: Ever training, this martial artist seeks true strength. Well-mannered and sincere, Ryu travels the globe in search of worthy opponents. Having overcome the Satsui no Hado, he now seeks yet greater heights.

 
Capcom also released a second Street Fighter 6 trailer (below) announcing a Real Time Commentary feature in the game. Several commentators from around the world will be featured in the game, offering their pre-recorded voices and advice to anyone's match for analysis. The Real Time Commentary trailer shows some additional gameplay footage. PlayStation.Blog also published an article revealing new gameplay information, details, and even more videos showing special moves for Ryu, Chun-Li, Jamie, and Luke.
