Street Fighter 6 is the next installment in a series of Japanese fighting games developed by Capcom. The leitmotif of the sixth installment is street culture, manifested both in the visual layer (urban scenery, tons of graffiti) and audio layer (the dynamic rhythm accompanying gameplay).

The game features many returning characters, such as Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Guile. The newcomers include the dignified Russian Johann Pavlovich, the French supermodel Manon and the Italian Marisa with ancient Greek ancestry.

Mechanics

Street Fighter 6 is a classic 1-on-1 fighting game. The developers at Capcom have introduced alternative control schemes to make the game more accessible for newcomers. In addition to the classic scheme requiring memorization of complex button combinations to execute combos, there are also dynamic and modern schemes. The former assists the player by executing attacks automatically, while the latter simplifies special attacks.

Yet another aspect making the game more accessible is the Drive meter. One of its uses is executing powerful counterattacks or moves that absorb incoming hits and throw the opponent off-balance. To succeed, the player must keep using Drive to activate special attacks while making sure they don't run out, as it temporarily blocks off their most powerful techniques.

Game modes

Street Fighter 6 features three primary gameplay modes. Fighting Ground features all submodes known from the fifth game, including regular 1-on-1 duels, ranked battles and battles with special rules.

World Tour is a story mode in which we create our own character and travel the world, fighting famous warriors along the way. We can also become their students and learn their techniques, such as the iconic Hadouken. If we can so wish, we can be mentored by several characters at once.

The last mode is Battle Hub, here for online play. Using the same character created for the story campaign we take part in limited-time tournaments and challenges or invite other people to compete against us at arcade machines inspired by classic Street Fighter games.
