Hot on the heels of its State of Play reveal, Street Fighter 6 will officially share a new character at Summer Game Fest this Thursday alongside more gameplay. Obviously, the roster recently leaked in pretty much its entirety, but this will be an official unveiling. There's a difference!
This means Street Fighter 6 joins the likes of Gotham Knights, The Callisto Protocol, Warframe, and Zenless Zone Zero at the show. Since you have probably already seen all the fighters included through the leak, which one do you hope this upcoming announcement focuses on? Check out our Summer Game Fest Live guide for more information on when you can tune in, and post your hopes in the comments below.
In other news, Rolling Stone has the exclusive on the fighter’s theme song. Entitled Not on the Sidelines, it’s a collaboration between Rocco808 and Randy Marx inspired by the “themes and retro vibe of the 1987 fighting game”. Some have criticised the release for turning to hip-hop, but producer Shuhei Matsumoto disagrees.
“Whether it’s the intro of Street Fighter, the characters quoted by famous rappers, or the art you see on the streets, we’re aware that Street Fighter is a perfect match for street and hip-hop culture,” he said. “And with Street Fighter 6, we pushed it to the forefront, and you can feel that flavour throughout the in-game sounds as well.”
Personally, we reckon the game’s vibe is impeccable so far.

Bit odd people are complaining about the Hip Hop music, when that was the whole tone in SF3.
Give me all of them characters.
@AdamNovice some people can't understand SF is in good hands now and they are use to say s*** about everything SF related. Most fans are happy with everything to this point about the project.
Oh yeah, keep the info coming Capcom!
@AdamNovice While the laughably silly hip hop main track in SF3 is great, most of the soundtrack is more breakbeat and jungle inspired than just straight hip hop. Besides, 90% of hip hop these days is trap so I’d expect that to be the dominating influence in this game’s soundtrack.
Hip-hop is generally not my thing but it works if it's associated with something it fits and I can't deny the theme song is pretty catchy! I only ask they don't try to shoehorn the different character themes into a hip-hop version of them. If it sounds right then fine but Ken's theme must having a rocking guitar or else it's just not right!
As for the character reveal I put my money on that Kimberly character teased at the end of the trailer on the big screen in the Battle Hub. Looking forward to it!
Well, I wait until they release the full game. I just bought Street Fighter V a few days ago, since they finally released a full version of it. I don't want to spend the next 3 years paying for SF6 dlcs.
Gonna be a short un then huh
rap is all i listen to but it really doesn’t go with everything man . it doesn’t .
