Street Fighter 6 Release Date Confirmed Via PlayStation Store
The release date for the sixth entry in Capcom’s popular fighting game series, Street Fighter 6, has been revealed via the PlayStation Store.
The “Coming Soon” section of the PlayStation Store now lists Street Fighter 6, and its store page reveals its release date. According to the PlayStation Store, the sixth entry in the popular fighting game series is set for release on June 2, 2023.
The appearance of a store page for Street Fighter 6 on PSN was likely done in error, and it’s possible that the official announcement is right around the corner at the forthcoming The Game Awards 2022. This wouldn’t be the first time PlayStation and Microsoft stores have revealed the release date of games ahead of their respective official announcements. That said, the only way to know for sure is to tune in to The Game Awards ceremony, which is set to air a few hours from now.
The opening movie for the World Tour mode in the game, titled “World Tour Opening Movie: The Meaning of Strength”, was previously released by Capcom, and it featured the roster of characters that will be available at launch. Based on an earlier character roster leak from a few months ago, it could, therefore, be seen who will be added later on as part of DLC.
Street Fighter VI was announced on February 21, 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The game introduces the Drive System, which involves managing the Drive Gauge. This gauge can be used to execute five different techniques that can help you improve your attack or defense. A Drive Impact is a strong blow that may absorb an opponent’s oncoming attack and results in a wall splat. Drive Parry may be used to deflect an opponent’s assault while also replenishing your Drive Gauge.
To quickly close in on their opponent, players can cancel out of a Drive Parry or standard attack into a Drive Rush. Overdrive Arts are similar to EX Moves from previous games in that they increase the strength of your special moves. To break free from tight situations, players can use Drive Reversal as a counterattack. The Street Fighter 6 community will have the opportunity to get creative with these five techniques, and use them in imaginative ways over the lifespan of the game.
