The visuals, thanks to the power of the RE Engine, have also received a major facelift with colours that explode on-screen mid-combat and character models looking extremely detailed while still retaining Street Fighter‘s iconic fighter designs.

In related news, Capcom recently spoke about the game’s development, stating that Street Fighter 6 was always developed with esports in mind. However, the company also encouraged newcomers to get involved with multiplayer and online play through the game’s Battle Hub, which allows players to take their custom-created avatars into a virtual space and challenge others in head-to-head fights. The Battle Hub will be available in the open beta.

Street Fighter 6 launches on 2 June 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Check out the open beta trailer below:
