During this week’s PlayStation State of Play, Capcom announced that Street Fighter 6 will release in 2023 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.

Street Fighter 6 will run on Capcom’s RE Engine, and feature three game modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub. Fighting Ground brings together all the main fighting modes from previous games, including Arcade, online, training and local versus.

World Tour is the single player story mode. According to the press release, Battle Hub “provides players with new and unique ways to engage, communicate, and interact,” teasing some sort of social experience.

The new trailer confirmed four fighters so far: Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke and Jamie.

Street Fighter 6 also adds the new Drive System. Players can build up their Drive gauge to unleash powerful Drive moves, including offensive and defensive.

While classic controls will be available, new players may enjoy the new optional control scheme. These simplified controls make it easier to execute special moves with the press of a single button.

For the first time, players can enjoy real-time commentary integrated into their game from popular fighting game commentators such as Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Ryutaro “Aru” Noda.

Street Fighter 6 will release in 2023 on PC and consoles. The Street Fighter series is rated T for Teen.
