When Street Fighter 6 was first announced earlier this year, it immediately became a popular topic of conversation among gamers. Since the previous mainstream Street Fighter title was released in 2011, this is the first successor in the series that attempts to be entirely new. As shown in the latest Street Fighter 6 teaser, which features 4 fresh fighters and a fresh graphic design and mechanics, this is the case. Ryu and Chun-Li, as well as Luke and Jamie, are among the newcomers.
A wide range of combat methods and kung fu is used by all of these heroes. Both Chun-Li and Ryu use “Power of Nothingness” mechanisms in their new attack repertoire, which differ from their previous portrayals. Fresh to Street Fighter 6 are Jamie’s Inebriated Boxing-inspired movements, as well as breakdancing techniques included in his arsenal of moves. The remainder of the ensemble was seen in concept art that was released soon after the current teaser made its formal debut.
The Title Would Include 20 Fighters
The concept design for Street Fighter 6 featured a variety of twenty fighters, including some familiar figures as well as some newcomers to the series. Street Fighter 2’s initial eight fighters, as well as personalities from more contemporary titles like Street Fighter 5, are included in this collection. Even though several photographs on Twitter were taken down owing to a trademark complaint, possibly at Capcom’s request, this stolen lineup circulated like a virus.

Street Fighter 6’s official Twitter handle addressed the disclosures with a lighthearted message. Numerous admirers have already seen photographs of the possible lineup for Street Fighter 6, which the post acknowledges was released far sooner than anticipated.

Although the crew was pleased by the favorable response from the public to the revealed drawings, they expect that the public would continue to look forward to the formal unveiling even if the mystery has already ringed the bell.
In spite of the thread’s lack of explicit reference to the disclosure, it briefly touched on its substance and the admiration for them. Some speculate that the whistleblower was Capcom themselves and that this was all part of the company’s plan to raise anticipation for Street Fighter 6 even more. Instead of attempting to deny that anything had happened, the corporation decided to turn it into a benefit rather than attempting to cover up what had happened.
