The digital pre-load should come with the latest update pre-installed, although a day one update may be rolled out closer to the game’s launch. Additionally, the approximate download size for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S versions of Street Fighter 6 is 50 GB.

Previously, it was reported that alternate costumes for some of the characters in Street Fighter 6 had started to leak ahead of the game’s launch. Alternate costumes for the first 5 characters on the Street Fighter 6 roster i.e. Ryu, Chun-Li, Jamie, Guile, and Luke, were revealed at San Diego Comic Con last year. Recently, we got a first look at the alternate costumes for Marisa and Aki via a leaked image that had emerged online.

Marisa’s alternate outfit appears to be a white suit, while Aki’s alternate costume is a gown of some sort. As for the other characters, Ryu’s alternate outfit is his iconic white gi from Street Fighter IV, with a red headband and red gloves. It’s worth mentioning that Ryu has only recently deviated from this appearance, adopting his master Gouken’s kasaya as his standard attire in Street Fighter 6. Furthermore, he reverts to his clean-shaven face while sporting the alternate costume.

Meanwhile, Chun-Li’s alternate costume is the classic attire she wore in Street Fighter 2, with spiked bracelets on her wrists. Guile’s alternate outfit is his his classic air force costume. Luke sports a yellow jacket, a hat, and pants as his alternate costume. Lastly, Jamie also wears a yellow jacket, but his is more of a vest-style variant.
