Capcom aims to take one of its most iconic series and the fighting game genre to another level with the release of Street Fighter 6 on June 2nd. It’s been seven years since there was a brand new release in the series.
Street Fighter V has released multiple versions and expansion packs since its debut in 2016. June 2nd is a big day for the Street Fighter universe and fighting game community as SF6 marks the start of the next era of the series and the first release of the current generation of consoles.
The playable demo went live on April 20th on PlayStation 4/5 and other platforms on April 26th. The demo received rave reviews. GameRant’s Tim Lord wrote this in a post praising 9 things the demo does well:
“While visual improvements are nothing new when a game is getting a sequel, street fighter 6 has improved its battle arenas by leaps and bounds to create a more immersive combat experience than ever before. In the title’s demo, players can witness battles in the Genbu Temple, which features a backdrop of cherry blossoms and Japanese torii, revealing the sacred space where combatants challenge each other.”
