The Street Fighter 6 Showcase, hosted by rap legend Lil Wayne, featured new information on the upcoming game, including new details on the World Tour mode, custom avatar battles, accessibility features, the Year 1 roadmap, and a demo showing the out today for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. The demo release for Xbox and Steam will follow on April 26th. 

The demo is available now on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Gamers on Xbox Series X|S or PC will have access starting April 26 at 9am PDT. In terms of content, the simple combat mechanics can be learned in the tutorial and Luke & Ryu's moves can be looked up in the character guide. You can also take your first steps in World Tour mode and explore the extensive character editor. Custom avatars can be carried over to the final game on the same platform once it's released.

World Tour: Kloppen around the globe

A brand new World Tour location has been introduced: Nayshall, a developing country in a remote corner of Asia. Players will meet legendary champions and experience the world of Street Fighter with their own avatar as they roam the streets of Metro City, Nayshall and other locations around the world in this new single-player story mode. A number of RPG elements were also shown: it will be possible to consume items and food during and outside of matches to regain life force, receive buffs or inflict debuffs. By leveling up their own avatar, players also gain skill points that they can invest in a skill tree to further customize their bespoke moves.

Additionally, fans can learn from their favorite masters - including all 18 starting characters - by enrolling in their style and learning their special abilities. Relationships with the masters can also be deepened by giving them gifts and completing missions. The combination of all these elements unlocks new cutscenes while strengthening personal relationships with these legendary characters.

After game fans have created their own character in World Tour, they can head to the Battle Hub to engage in custom avatar battles against other players online. There they can showcase their personal fighting style learned in World Tour, such as a combination of Dhalsim's fighting style combined with Zangief's Screw Piledriver and Ken's Hadoken, or even wilder combinations of moves.

Street Fighter 6 Accessibility

Street Fighter 6 supports accessibility with innovative sound design that shows how far players are from their opponent, how high the attacks are, whether an attack is a cross-up, how much of the drive meter is left, and much more. For both newcomers and veterans, there are in-depth tutorials, character guides, and combo trials that provide a solid foundation for any character. The third control type besides "Classic" and "Modern" is "Dynamic", where it is possible to activate a character's special abilities by simply pressing the auto attack button and the AI ​​supports the attacks and combos.

Arcade mode is a single player mode where players compete against the computer and learn more about the story of each fighter. Completing Arcade mode with a character unlocks artwork in the gallery for viewing. You can also upload your own results to online ranking lists and compare them. It is also possible to create your own teams with up to five characters and compete against other players or the AI. The match format can be set individually and contains options such as single elimination, doubles or teams.

Fight against the whole world

Ranked matches are making a return, with measures to ease the pressure when opponents at certain tiers lose a match. For one thing, there is now a unique rank relegation protection feature for players in Diamond rank and below. Also, newcomers no longer lose league points if they lose, to encourage online play. Finally, players with the rank of Iron-Gold and Master will no longer be demoted in the league. Each character also has their own individual rank, making trying out new characters in ranked games easier than ever.

To celebrate the entire Street Fighter franchise, we're introducing the Battle Damage feature. During the fights, the characters become more sweaty, get cuts and bruises, and other signs of a heated fight can be seen on their faces and clothing. This feature is only available in certain offline modes and can be turned off in settings. Game fans can create their own clubs in the Battle Hub to play together with friends and find like-minded people. It is also possible to customize the club emblem and design your own uniform that only members of your own club can show off.

Rashid of the Turbulent Wind, who made his debut in Street Fighter V, returns in Summer 2023. The enigmatic AKI struts into the roster in fall 2023. Ed, the young commander from Street Fighter V, also strikes back in early winter 2024. And finally, the legend itself, the beast, the transcendent Akuma, will appear in Street Fighter 2024 in Spring 6. All four characters will be included as champions in the World Tour upon their release, and are also included in the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of Street Fighter 6.
