Capcom’s Street Fighter 6 was announced today in a brief teaser trailer which featured Ryu and series newcomer Luke. More news has been promised for the Summer but in the meantime, Bayonetta 2 and Star Fox Zero director Yusuke Hashimoto has confirmed his involvement. He’ll be working as one of the game designers on the project.
Hashimoto has a number of other big games to his credit, serving as a producer on Bayonetta and lead VFX for Resident Evil, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 4. It should be interesting to see what direction the fighter takes, especially following the departure of series producer Yoshinori Ono.
Though official details are wanting, there are plenty of rumors and reports to fall back on. Insider AestheticGamer (aka Dusk Golem) noted that it’s running on RE Engine, much like the publisher’s other recent titles. Previous rumors also indicated that the title would launch for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5 and PC. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
Street Fighter 6, the newest entry in the Street Fighter series, has finally been revealed!
I'm pleased to share that I'm working on it as one of the game designers.
Please look forward to further news! https://t.co/uPTi7tp958
