Capcom’s countdown ends with a Street Fighter 6 reveal and more


Last week Capcom’s countdown clock had all the fans guessing, some were expecting the inevitable Resident Evil 4 Remake, others were hoping for a revival of one of the Osaka based developer’s many dormant IPs, but those who were clever enough to deduce that the countdown’s end coincided with the company’s annual fighting game tournament, the Capcom Cup were the real winners.

As it reached zero, fans around the world were treated to a 39 second teaser featuring Ryu, now sporting a chest which would make Adam Driver envious, wearing actual footwear and Luke, the last combatant to join Street Fighter V squaring up. Fists clench, veins bulge and punches are thrown as we are treated to the logo and the exclamation Street Fighter 6!

As promised the reign of Street Fighter V is over and fighting game fans everywhere will now begin making feature and character wishlists and setting unreasonable expectations and I’m here for it. Here’s hoping Capcom will have more information for us soon.

Capcom Fighting Collection, due out this June, was also revealed and will include 10 classics fighters from most of Capcom’s franchises including Darkstalkers, Street Fighter, Cyberbots, Super Gem Fighter Mini and even Red Earth.
