As promised, Luke, the very last fighter who appeared in Street Fighter V at the end of last year, will be at the center of events in Street Fighter 6, without retiring the emblematic Ryu, now old enough to wear the beard by default, one would say. In addition to an overview of the new artistic direction of the game and this logo which seems to want to evoke eSports, these are the only two information that we can draw from this cinematic teaser, Capcom having not revealed anything about the platforms, content or of the game launch window.
Street Fighter 6 will be the newest title in the series and the sequel to Street Fighter V, which has sold 6.1 million units. Capcom is developing this title with the goal of taking the fighting game genre to the next level in the world of esports, while using its cutting-edge development technology to produce an exciting gaming experience.
More information is expected this summer, although we can already add that Yusuke Hashimoto (director of Bayonetta 2 and Star Fox Zero) is working on the game as a designer. Yoshinori Ono left for other horizons, we should logically find director Takayuki Nakayama and producer Shuhei Matsumoto, a tandem who presented the last seasons of Street Fighter V to the public and ensured the transition to this new chapter.
Remember that the Street Fighter franchise is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year and that it has more than 47 million games distributed worldwide. At Capcom, only Resident Evil (123 million) and Monster Hunter (78 million) do better.
