Gameplay[]

The major new feature of Street Fighter 6's gameplay revolves around the "Drive" system -- a bar below the characters' vitality meters that enable the use of several abilities that draw on it. When emptied it leaves the fighters in a "burnout" state but will automatically restore over time.

  • Drive Impact: A heavy attack that can absorb an opponent's incoming attack, similar to a Focus Attack. When performed near the corner it can pin the opponent to the wall even if they are blocking.
  • Drive Parry: Deflects an incoming attack and replenishes the Drive meter. A "Perfect Parry" can be performed if an attack is deflected in perfect sync.
  • Overdrive: The replacement for EX Special moves in previous Street Fighter titles. An enhanced special attack that adds hits or improves the properties of its base move.
  • Drive Rush: A fast dash that can be performed out of either a Drive Parry or a cancellable normal strike. Rushing out of a normal move costs more Drive gauge than a parry.
  • Drive Reversal: Akin to an Alpha Counter or V-Reversal -- the user blocks an incoming strike and retaliates with a low damage move. With the May 22, 2024 update, a variant of this called Recovery Drive Reversal was added, and can be used after the user recovers from knockdown.

A simplified control scheme, somewhat similar to Marvel vs. Capcom 3, is available as an optional alternative to the standard six-button scheme to ease players into the game. Punch and kick attack strengths are removed and players play with three generic "Attack" buttons of varying strength and a Special Move button to perform special attacks, which are performed by using the Special Move button in conjunction with a directional input. Techniques such as Drive Parries and Drive Impact are performed with a single button press and a combo assist button allows players to easily string attacks together when held down. However, the input mechanics of the specials and supers being in simplified buttons dated back in Ryu and Chun-Li's guest appearance in Lionsgate's Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. Street Fighter 6 also marks the return of using multiple supers during gameplay since it was first utilized in Street Fighter Alpha series, and being the third game to do so since the multiple Super Combo usage mechanic was lastly utilized in Ultra Street Fighter IV for the "Ultra Combo W" variant. However, this game only has 3 super moves and each of them based on 3 levels respectively.[5] When a character's vitality is low, the Super Arts change to Critical Arts.


In addition, Taunts return for characters to use in Street Fighter 6 as well as alternate character colors, and all characters also have a unique victory animation for them on the Result Screen after a match, like in previous games. Each character in the game's roster will have their own vocal theme song. With the May 22, 2024 update, a Custom Character BGM setting was added to the Audio tab in Options, meaning that when this setting is turned on, the player can choose to use any Music Player tracks that they have to use for any character instead, as the player is able to set up a maximum number of 30 tracks for each character that will be chosen at random at the start of each match.

The VS screen for this game now shows unique information for each character chosen before the battles as they enter the stage, and all characters have two versions of their intro walk animations that are used depending on if the character is chosen by P1 or P2. It also introduces the "Game Face" feature to it, which allows a character to have one of four different facial emotions and expressions by pressing the controller's directional buttons, first dated back in Bandai Namco's Soulcalibur II until Soulcalibur III. The pre-fight intro cutscenes before the first round of the match are now shortened down to 2 seconds, compared to the previous games; Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V.

The game features an in-game commentary feature, a series first,[6] as well as online rollback netcode and cross-play. Street Fighter 6 also runs on Capcom's RE Engine.[7]

Modes[]

Street Fighter 6 features three overarching game modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub. Fighting Ground contains local and online versus battles as well as training and arcade modes, all featuring similar 2D fighting gameplay to the previous games in the series, in which two fighters use a variety of attacks and special abilities to knock out their opponent.

World Tour is a single-player story mode with RPG-like mechanics, featuring a customizable player avatar exploring 3D environments with action-adventure gameplay.

Battle Hub acts as an online lobby mode, using customizable player avatars from the World Tour mode with features such as taking part in Avatar Battles, using the DJ Booth, playing classic games in the Game Center, etc., with other features set to be revealed in the future.

On 1st July, 2023, it was announced that the game will collaborate with the manga and anime series Spy x Family to promote the latter's then-upcoming movie, Spy x Family Code: White.[10] A short special animation by WIT Studio was released on 4th December 2023,[11] featuring Yor and Chun-Li having a showdown in Street Fighter 6's Suval'hal Arena. The video also announced collab in-game items, which became available on January 9, 2024 with the official site and a trailer explaining the details.[12][13]

On 6th August, 2023, an collaboration with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was confirmed during EVO 2023. The collaboration includes gear, emotes, Titles, stamps, in-game device wallpapers, camera frames in Photo Mode, and the ability to turn the World Tour and Battle Hub custom Avatar into one of the turtles.[14] The collaboration also includes a cover of the 1987 TV series's theme song done by Capcom's in-house band CAP-JAMS and sung by Luke's English voice actor Aleks Le.[15]

A collab with anime and manga series Baki the Grappleris also planned to appear in the future to celebrate the series' 30th Anniversary, with Avatar recipies being released in September which show how to make some of the characters from the series.

Included inside is 12 stickers to use in messages and photos as well as six frames pulled from manga panels, and titles for the player profile. This bundle will be available to use until January 8, 2024.[17]

Trivia[]

  • In the June 2022 trailer of the game, a teenage girl with a Capcom-themed jacket was seen, bearing a resemblance to Li-Fen (Chun-Li's adopted daughter). Takayuki Nakayama later confirmed on his Twitter account that it was indeed her.[18] Whether she will be playable as well remains unknown.
  • Damnd, the first boss in the original Final Fight, is also shown prominently in the trailer. A close-up of his jacket is shown, followed by a distance shot of him over a rooftop, after which he appears alongside Andore Jr. behind Luke entering the stage. He is also shown appearing in a stage alongside other Mad Gear Gang members.
  • Like Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V, the game will have both new and returning English and Japanese voice actors to voice their respective characters, although there are some exceptions.
    • Chun-Li who is now voiced by Jennie Kwan, replacing Laura Bailey.
    • Guile is now voiced by Ray Chase, replacing Travis Willingham.
    • Ken is now voiced by David Matranga, replacing Reuben Langdon.
    • Blanka is now voiced by Luis Bermudez, replacing Taliesin Jaffe.
    • Dhalsim is now voiced by Keith Silverstein, replacing Christopher Bevins.
    • Dee Jay is now voiced by Zeno Robinson, replacing Chris Cain.
    • Akuma/Gouki is now voiced by Christopher Guerrero, replacing Richard Epcar.
      • All of the aforementioned former voice actors have voiced their respective characters in English since 2008.
  • On the character select screen, Chun-Li's pose for being unselected is a reference to her Street Fighter IV character artwork by Kinu Nishimura, and Ryu's pose for being unselected is a reference to his Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character artwork.
  • This was the first main Street Fighter series game to be released for the PlayStation 5, the third game released for the PlayStation 4 after Ultra Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V, and the first to be released on an Xbox console (the Xbox Series X and Series S) since the Street Fighter IV series which were released in 2009 up until 2014 for the Xbox 360.
  • As part of the May 22, 2024 Akuma update, Street Fighter 6 marked the first time where a selection of the BGM tracks and vocal songs from the 2013 smartphone rhythm battle RPG game Otoranger, and the 2012 Lost Planet spin-off E.X. Troopers can be listened to in-game, as the former's online services ended on October 14, 2014, making it no longer playable, and both games weren't released outside Japan, which makes the music from these two games become heard outside the region for the first time.
  • Street Fighter 6 marks the Street Fighter franchise's first mainline title to feature playable characters from a third-party series.
  • This is the second time Street Fighter and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a official collaboration. The franchises had previously a comic crossover published by IDW in May 2023.
