Although it was already expected that Capcom would continue with its successful fighting saga, the company has decided to surprise us all with the premiere of a small teaser during the grand finale of the Capcom Pro Tour 2021 to confirm the arrival of Street Fighter 6 So, if no additional information has been revealed at the moment, Capcom itself makes it clear in the description of this video: «It’s official: Street Fighter 6 is in development! Stay tuned for more news in summer 2022«.
With less than a minute in advance, in this video we can seean aesthetic of characters quite similarto the last installment, albeit, with a notable jump in quality that predicts a more luxurious delivery in details and “realism”. In fact, this new installment is expected to follow a lot along the lines presented by its predecessor, continuing its full story mode and a great focus on the competitive part.
Thus, of course, the presence of the absolute icon of the franchise, Ryu, could not be missing in his battle attire. Although we are surprised that Capcom has opted for the only accompaniment of Luke, one of the latest additions to the cast, present exclusively in one of the DLCs, arrived last November. And it seems that the company wants to give this fighter greater prominence and relevance.
Although at the moment more details about when we will be able to see this new installment are unknown, with the only date for new details for this summer, it would not be surprising if Capcom is preparing the arrival of this game for the end of this year, coinciding with the celebration of the 35th anniversary of the saga.
