Street Fighter 6 enjoyed another outstanding showcase during The Game Awards overnight, where four new characters were officially added to the roster – including returnee Dee Jay and newcomers Manon, Marisa, and JP. Capcom also showcased a little more of the World Tour mode, which will expand beyond Metro City, and will see you traveling to exotic locations like Italy and France.
In addition to overcoming Masters from each country in order to learn new special moves, you’ll also be able to engage in minigames, which will see you sampling traditional Italian cuisine and even parrying basketballs. In each case, the minigames have been designed to sharpen your skills in battle, which is a nice way of subtly introducing tutorials in our opinion.
The game’s currently available to pre-order, with three options available: Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate. The main difference between the trio is that the Deluxe Edition includes the Year 1 Character Pass, featuring four post-release fighters, a bunch of colour variants, and 4,200 Drive Tickets, which you can use to purchase in-game items. The Ultimate Edition comes with all of the aforementioned, in addition to two additional costumes for the DLC fighters, two extra stages, and 7,700 Drive Tickets.
If you pre-order on the PS Store, you’ll also get some additional costume colour variants for Chun-Li, Jamie, Manon, Dee Jay, Juri, and Ken – as well as a selection of titles and stickers, which you can use to customise your profile with. And if you did miss the new trailer yesterday, we seriously recommend checking it out – the game looks incredible!
