Street Fighter 6’s leaked lineup looks surprisingly good
The Most recent play status consists of a brief look at 6 . street fighter, which is currently set to launch in 2023. But a new Capcom fighting game usually means we’re stocking up on some Capcom fighting game leaks. This time around, it only took a few hours to get the artwork on what seemed like a pretty big part of the 6 . street fighter list to display online.
The mentioned images (check them out here) began popularizing via social media on Thursday night, revealing some of the characters that will be playable in the series. 6 . street fighter. Of course, Ryu, Chun-Li, and Luke are there showing off their updated designs, as are newcoms Jamie and Kimberly, but don’t let that fool you: Here’s a deal could potentially blow away many months of Capcom’s game feed marketing plan.
Kotaku reached out to Capcom for comment but did not receive a response prior to publication.
Generally speaking, 6 . street fighter The leak pulls back the curtain on nearly 20 individual characters, including series veterans such as Ken, Zangief, Dhalsim, E. Honda, Blanka, Guile, Cammy, Dee Jay, Rashid, Juri, Ed, and Akuma. The real excitement, at least in my mind, comes from the fresh faces standing next to the old ones, which I have tried my best to describe in the list below.
- Marisathe most prominent of the bunch (and possibly an attempt by Capcom to make more use of the internet fixed giant lady), is a sculptural Italian woman with MMA style and serious helmet hair.
- France first Mimiwith her judo outfit, is giving me “Abel from Street Fighter IV“Although there is much better style.
- Lilly is a Mexican girl dressed in indigenous clothing and holding a pair of canes possibly based on the Aztecs quauholōlli.
- Many people seem to think that JPa calm Russian, connected with Street Fighter IIIof Q and VO street fighterof G somehow. All I know is that peach suit is working for him.
- Kimberlywho was prominently teased late yesterday 6 . street fighter presentation, will be the series’ first playable African-American woman. I really love her giant pigtails and walkers.
- And finally, AKI is an assassin-looking character from China whose name and appearance are compared to VO street fighter villain FANG

Update 06/03/2022 2:51 p.m. ET: In addition to the leaked images, two videos have surfaced online. The first shows Cammy (in her trademark leotard rather than the pants seen in the artwork, interestingly enough) perform a super movewhile the second is a brief look at a 6 . street fighter menu. The latter also seems to indicate that Mimi, the new French boxer, might actually be named Manon, an ordinary woman’s name in her country.
It is always wise to be skeptical of these things, but there are many signs that indicate 6 . street fighter leaks are legal.
Although I can’t trace the source — my research ended in a dead end on a random Discord server, where the images were uploaded over an hour before they showed up on sites like Twitter, Reddit and 4chan — near-perfect artwork that fits a leak months old from a known insider. 6 . street fighter The content released with yesterday’s preview also hints at some of these characters that will be in the game, from obvious picks like Cammy and Guile to leaked mysteries. before Kimberly and Marisa.
I believe this leak is real. And if it doesn’t, it’s the work of an incredibly skilled artist who was fortunate enough to fit Capcom’s official designs based on vague descriptions, fast enough to create so many works. art soon after 6 . street fighter presentation, or both.
However, there are still some questions. It is not yet clear whether all these characters are in 6 . street fighter launch lists or if they are meant to be added piecemeal through subsequent updates. Furthermore, we don’t know for sure if everyone has made it past the design phase, although the aesthetic and unified presentation lead me to believe this is an insider asset that has escaped the leaky ship. leak of the Capcom fighting game team too soon.
In any case, this 6 . street fighter The leak has created a level of hype among fans that more official screenings have largely failed to attract. I’m not sure Capcom and its outside contractors are up to the task of translating these incredible designs into 3D purely based on how ugly some of the characters are. VO street fighter turns out, but watch me be cautiously optimistic about the franchise for the first time in years.
Update 05/06/2022 12:41 p.m. ET: The description of one of the characters has been updated.
