Sometimes it’s too late to right a leaky ship. Mere hours after announcing gameplay for Street Fighter 6, concept art featuring what appeared to be the entire Street Fighter 6 roster leaked. The roster has 22 playable characters to start, featuring the usual World Warriors, returning characters from other Street Fighter games, and seven new characters.
Classic Street Fighter characters include Ryu, Ken, Zangief, Dhalsim, E. Honda, Blanka, Guile, Chun-Li, Cammy, Akuma, and Dee Jay. Other returning members are: Rashid (Street Fighter V), Juri (Street Fighter IV), Ed (Street Fighter V), and Luke (Street Fighter V).
The bottom row features the new characters beside Luke, who is the new “protagonist” of Street Fighter that was introduced in V. The characters, from left to right, seem to be named: Marisa, Jamie, Mimi, Lily, JP, Kimberly, and A.K.I.
Though these leaks don’t have a specific source, eagle-eyed fans noted the trailer had several unannounced characters in a tournament bracket in the background. And then to top it off, Capcom themselves joked about it on the Street Fighter twitter account:
As residents of Metro City, we’ve all seen things we weren’t supposed to see, but we're all in this together. We appreciate all the positive reactions. Thank you for the support!
