During PlayStation’s latest State of Play digital event, Capcom revealed three new characters to join the launch roster of the much anticipated Street Fighter 6. The legendary Cammy, Zangief, and newcomer Lily complete the jam-packed 18-character line-up. Street Fighter 6 includes all eight of the original Street Fighter World Warriors (Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Zangief, E. Honda, Blanka, Dhalsim), plus four returning franchise favorites (Cammy, Juri, Dee Jay, Luke), and six brand new faces (Lily, Jamie, Kimberly, Manon, Marisa, JP) for players to test their mettle with.
Cammy, Zangief, and Lily each bring their own personality and highly skilled fighting expertise to the game:
Cammy: First appearing in Super Street Fighter II, the cat-loving Cammy returns with her beloved arsenal of high-powered attacks, including Spiral Arrow, Cannon Spike, and Hooligan Combination. The Heavy version of each of those three moves has been enhanced to allow for a delay and altered properties or damage. Visit King Street, Cammy’s foggy, industrial stage, and perform Super Art moves like the Killer Bee Spin and Delta Red Assault to send opponents to their knees and get the crowd buzzing.
Zangief: Rumbling his way onto the scene is the immense Zangief, an original World Warrior who loves to show off for the crowd at Barmaley Steelworks. A professional wrestler by trade, Zangief keeps hold of his trademark throws like the Screw Piledriver and Siberian Express, picking up new moves like the counter throw Tundra Storm. His Level 2 Super Art Cyclone Lariat and Level 3 Super Art Bolshoi Storm Buster are sure to be crowd-pleasers.
Lily: A new addition to the roster, Lily will seem familiar to some as she is a descendant of the Thunderfoot tribe, the same tribe as the iconic T. Hawk who was first seen in Super Street Fighter II. Small but mighty, Lily speaks with the spirits of nature at her home in the vibrant Thunderfoot Settlement and defeats enemies with her ferocious Condor Dive, Condor Spire, and Tomahawk Buster. Condor Wind will grant one Windclad stock, which powers up each of the aforementioned moves. Lily wields her war clubs to barrage opponents in her Level 1 Super Art Breezing Hawk and slams her enemies to the ground with her Level 3 Super Art Raging Typhoon.
Street Fighter 6 is available for pre-order now and represents the next evolution of the Street Fighter series with a combo of unique fighting game innovations and brimming with content across three brand new game modes – Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub. Chances of additional DLC characters released through multiple Season Passes are a high possibility given CAPCOM’s history of milking players through this franchise.
Players around the world can get their hands on all the hard-hitting Street Fighter 6 action starting on June 2, 2023, across PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
