Street Fighter 6 offers a mix of innovations unique to fighting games, including:
- New game modes: the franchise street-fighter continues to hone your skills and redefine the fighting genre with the introduction of three new pivotal modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub.
- In-game comments: The real-time commentary feature brings the voices of popular Fighting Game Community (FGC) commentators like Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Ryutaro “Aru” Noda directly into the game! Players will be able to choose from different personalities to narrate matches as they happen with easy-to-understand gameplay explanations. This feature will also support subtitles in 13 languages for greater accessibility.
- New control scheme: the classic type of control is back along with a new option. The modern type of control allows players to jump into the action with simplified inputs. Special moves are easier to execute with this scheme by combining a button with a direction.
- New basic fighting mechanics: Street Fighter 6 introduces the Drive System, a new bar used to perform five different techniques to enhance a player’s offensive or defensive capabilities: Drive Impact, Drive Parry, Overdrive Art, Drive Rush, and Drive Reversal.
In addition to new gameplay innovations, Street Fighter 6 it also celebrates everything fans love about the franchise by bringing together game modes from previous titles within the Fighting Ground experience, including Arcade mode, online matches, training mode, local versus battles and more. From iconic World Warriors like Ryu and Chun-Li, to the final addition to the roster of Street Fighter™ V, Luke, and our new expert breakdancer, Jamie, players will have a wide range of fighting styles and skills to master. We hope to reveal more about which other combatants will be joining the roster of playable characters later this year.
Capcom will also have much more to share about World Tour and Battle Hub as the release of Street Fighter 6. For now, what we can share is that World Tour is an immersive single player story mode that pushes the boundaries of what a fighting game is and allows players to leave their own legacy with their player avatar. Battle Hub, shown only briefly so far, gives players new and unique ways to engage, communicate, and interact.
