Street Fighter 6 is introducing its own form of emotes, and though flossing may be a step too far, Capcom has settled for pulling faces at your opponent before the match.
The developer released the first gameplay for Street Fighter 6 just a few days ago at PlayStation’s State of Play, seemingly opening the floodgates for other tidbits of information about the latest entry in its iconic fighting game series.
One of these came through the official Street Fighter Twitter account (below), which revealed that pressing the directional buttons during the versus screen will cause the character to pull different faces. Players can therefore make Ryu and friends (and enemies) scowl at each other, act super smug, or emulate pre-fight jitters by speeding through a number of emotions in rapid fire succession.
Show your attitude with the Game Face Feature in #StreetFighter6 by pressing directional buttons during the versus screen.
Scowl at your opponent, act all smug, or confuse them with a mixture of rapid emotions!

Capcom only showed a couple of different options, so it’s unclear if each fighter will be limited to four faces (as per the four directional buttons) or if players can mix and match different emotions by assigning them to different buttons.
This would be akin to emote systems in the likes of Elden Ring or earlier FromSoftware games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, but this type of content has also been heavily tied to DLC and Battle Passes in the likes of live-service games like Fortnite and Apex Legends.
Capcom confirmed last week that Street Fighter 6 will be released in 2023, so there’s plenty of time to speculate before fans actually find out.
The game was first announced in February following a week-long tease from Capcom, and almost immediately sparked some controversy with its announcement logo that was bizarrely similar to a stock image.
