Capcom’s Mysterious Countdown Announces Street Fighter 6, Capcom Fighting Collection Also Announced
Capcom‘s mysterious countdown timer has run its time and from that fans got treated to the announcement of Street Fighter 6. The reveal was made at the end of the Capcom Pro Tour and the cinematic trailer featured a showdown between Ryu and Luke.
Luke was the final Street Fighter V character to join as DLC content and Capcom had previously stated that he would play an integral role in the future of the franchise and based on the trailer it looks like that is certainly the case. As for the trailer itself, whether its any indication of the art style we might see in-game, it’s not fully known, but if it is, we might be looking at a more traditional art style different from the ink brush graphics we have become accustomed to in Street Fighter 4 and 5.
More information is coming this summer according to Capcom and that might indicate if the graphics were purely for the trailer or if we may be seeing a new look at in-game graphics. Yusuke Hashimoto, who has worked on Resident Evil and is the director of Bayonetta 2 also announced on his Twitter shortly after the announcement that he is among the upcoming game’s designers. Check out the announcement trailer below:
