There are also a variety of different modes to play online with, such as ranked matches, casual matches, open tournaments, and more. Additionally, cross-play functionality will let players from separate platforms enjoy the game with each other.
Street Fighter 6 will continue to be supported following its launch on June 2. Rashid from Street Fighter 5 will start off the game’s first year of DLC characters starting in the summer and newcomer A.K.I. will join in November. Ed from Street Fighter 4 and Akuma from Street Fighter II Turbo will be added in Winter 2024 and Spring 2024, respectively.
In IGN’s Street Fighter 6 final preview, we said, “Street Fighter 6 is shaping up to be the whole package, and certainly the most fully featured a Street Fighter game has ever been at the beginning of its lifecycle.”
