Capcom has announced Street Fighter 6, the next major entry in the iconic fighting game franchise, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. A short teaser trailer followed the season finale of the Capcom Pro Tour, where Kawano defeated veteran Daigo Umehara.
The trailer doesn’t show any actual gameplay, but it does suggest that: Street Fighter 6 will have a more realistic drawing style than previous games in the series – at least as realistic as you’d expect while maintaining Ryu’s formidable proportions. Capcom says more information about the game will be released this summer.
Capcom hopes so Street Fighter 6 has a better launch than its predecessor. Street Fighter V looked and played great when it came out in 2016 for PS4 and PC, but it suffered from a lack of content, bugs and server issues. The game eventually sold over six million copies after subsequent revisions Arcade Edition and Champion edition got a better reception.
