Street Fighter 6 won’t just be available on consoles and PC, but it will also be available in arcades.
Taito subsidiary Square Enix will distribute the arcade version, according to the press release sent by the developer’s Japanese arm.
As of now, no launch date has been set, but it is expected to happen in 2023. There is no word at the moment as to whether it will appear in the dwindling western arcades, or only in Japan, where the arcade scene is still alive.
On top of the announcement of several fighters at The Game Awards, including Dee Jay, Manon, Marisa, and JP, the game will be released on June 2, 2023 for Sony PlayStation 5, Sony PlayStation 4, Xbox One S, and Microsoft Windows.
A video game based on the Street Fighter series debuted in the arcades in 1987 with only Ryu and Ken available for play.
Street Fighter II was one of the greatest arcade hits of 1991, and Street Fighter II: Champion Edition was even better. In spite of the fact that arcades have been declining sharply for years, seeing a new Street Fighter cabinet shouldn’t surprise anyone.
As of now, Ryu, Chun-Li, Ken, E. Honda, Blanka, Dhalsim, Guile, Juri, Jake, Kimberly, Jamie, Dee Jay, Manon, Marisa, and JP are revealed with a few others being completely new.
The list goes on and on, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens next. It is still quite a while before the game releases, and a good number of classic fighters still haven’t been added.
