Capcom, one of the most well-known video game developers in the world, has just announced the final three characters that will be available at launch in their highly anticipated fighting game, Street Fighter 6. Fans of the series are in for a treat, as the mighty Zangief, cunning Cammy, and newcomer Lily round out the initial roster of 18 characters, each with their own unique moves and playstyles.
Cammy, a fan-favorite character who first appeared in Super Street Fighter II, returns with her signature high-powered attacks, including Spiral Arrow, Cannon Spike, and Hooligan Combination. Fans will be pleased to learn that the Heavy version of each of these moves has been enhanced, allowing for a delay that results in altered properties for some big damage. Cammy’s new look is also sure to turn heads, with her shorter hair reminding some fans of Android 18 from Dragon Ball Z and her new outfit replacing her usual unitard.
Meanwhile, Zangief, an original World Warrior who loves to show off for the crowd at Barmaley Steelworks, enters the fray with his trademark throws like the Screw Piledriver and Siberian Express, as well as some new moves like the counter throw Tundra Storm. His Level 2 Super Art Cyclone Lariat and Level 3 Super Art Bolshoi Storm Buster are sure to impress fans of the series.
Last but not least, Lily, a new addition to the roster, is a descendant of the Thunderfoot tribe, the same tribe as the iconic T. Hawk who was first seen in Super Street Fighter II. Despite her small size, Lily is a force to be reckoned with, defeating enemies with her ferocious Condor Dive, Condor Spire, and Tomahawk Buster. Her unique ability, Condor Wind, grants one Windclad stock, which powers up each of her aforementioned moves. Fans will also love her Level 1 Super Art Breezing Hawk and her Level 3 Super Art Raging Typhoon.
Street Fighter 6 is set to be released on June 2, 2023, and will be available on PC (Steam), PS4/5, and Xbox Series X|S. Fans can choose to purchase physical versions of the game at their favorite retailers, including GameStop. With a diverse roster of characters, each with their own unique playstyles and moves, there is sure to be a character for everyone to enjoy. Which character will you be playing as?
