Fighter 6: Brand new game modes

Street Fighter 6 delivers a combo of unique fighting game innovations, including brand new game modes. That Street Fighter-Franchise continues to hone its skills and redefine the fighting genre with the introduction of three new core modes - Fighting Ground, World Tour and Battle Hub.

A real-time commentary feature embeds the voices of well-known Fighting Game Community (FGC) commentators like Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Ryutaro “Aru” Noda directly into the game. Players will have a choice of different stars commenting directly on the battles with easy-to-understand gameplay explanations. The feature will also support subtitles in 13 languages ​​for better accessibility.

Classic controls are back, along with a new option. Modern controls allow players to jump right into the action with simplified inputs. This makes special attacks easier to execute, as you only have to press an action button and perform a directional input.

Street Fighter 6 introduces the Drive System, a new meter to perform five specific techniques to expand a player's offensive or defensive options, namely: Drive Impact, Drive Parry, Overdrive Art, Drive Rush and Drive Reversal .

Given the rumor mill that had been brewing for years, the surprise was no longer that great when Capcom's countdown ended and the teaster trailer for Street Fighter 6 flickered across the displays. The anticipation for the next part of the main series is not less. The first part of the fighting game series was released in 1987, initially on the in-house "Capcom Play System" in arcades. Then success came: in the meantime, people are beating on PCs, consoles and handhelds.

Street Fighter hasn't lost its appeal over the years. Many fans from back then play, no: still beat them up today. At least one well-known martial arts specialist is on Street Fighter 6: Ryu, who is now half bodybuilder, half karateka. Also on display: Luke, who only found his way into the game with Street Fight 5 – and there with the Season 5 Character Pass.

In any case, Capcom confirmed the rumors about the ongoing development of Street Fighter 6 with the release of the teaser. Capcom only announced more information via Twitter for the summer of 2022. Fans who were hoping for an early release of Street Fighter 6 might be disappointed, after all, the release was already expected in 2021. Problems with the development obviously scattered the plans. After all, so far, the waiting time has always been worth it. Capcom delivered with every part of the main series.

Neither Capcom nor the trailer give a release date. According to rumors, Street Fighter 6 is in development for PC and the last-gen and next-gen consoles, namely: Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Playstation 4 and Playstation 5. This will particularly please Xbox fans who at least have to do without the current fifth part of the beating game series, which was only released for PS4 and PC.
