Street Fighter 6 Set After Street Fighter III, Versus Screen Face-Pulling Confirmed

Capcom has revealed a few additional nuggets of info about Street Fighter 6, off the back of its gameplay debut last week, in which Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke, and Jamie were confirmed as the first four characters. A 22-character roster leak swiftly followed, which Capcom in turn acknowledged, and now there are few more details to pore over.

One of which is Street Fighter 6's place in the SF timeline. Apparently, SF6 will take place after Street Fighter III, which explains why Ryu is shown sporting the kasaya Buddhist robes, reminiscent of his master, Goken. At this point, Ryu feels that he's “not there yet” in terms of strength and skill, according to Game Director Taka Nakayama.

Another detail confirmed for SF6 is the new ‘Game Face’ feature, wherein you'll be able to psyche out your opponent by making different facial expressions using the d-pad. “Show your attitude with the Game Face Feature in #StreetFighter6 by pressing directional buttons during the versus screen,” the tweet from Capcom reads.

“Scowl at your opponent, act all smug, or confuse them with a mixture of rapid emotions!”

Street Fighter 6 is due to launch in 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Presumably, we'll find out a little more about the game during Capcom's upcoming showcase next week.

  • Can’t wait to play this game! I think the leaks have benefited everything, as Capcom will likely be more forthcoming with informs now incase it happens again! Hopefully Q makes his way to the game at some point!!
  • The Game Face feature.... makes me think of the expressions you could pull in the LittleBigPlanet games.
  • They should've just kept updating Street Fighter 5 with new characters, new stages, new costumes, new modes, new features and new single player story expansions.
