    During the Street Fighter 6 Showcase, Capcom revealed the fighting game’s post-launch DLC characters releasing in Year 1. Street Fighter 6’s Year 1 lineup of DLC includes returning characters from Street Fighter V: Champion Edition and a brand-new character. 

    Upcoming Street Fighter 6 DLC

    Capcom confirms DLC characters Rashid, A.K.I., Ed, and Akuma will be making their way into Street Fighter 6 during Year 1. In 2023, Rashid will launch in the summer, and A.K.I. will release during the fall. Ed launches in winter 2024, and the almighty Akuma launches in spring 2024 as the final DLC character of Street Fighter 6 Year 1.

    “Rashid of the Turbulent Wind, who debuted in Street Fighter V, returns in Summer 2023.” Capcom said in a press release. “The enigmatic A.K.I. struts into the roster in Autumn 2023. Ed, the Young Commander from Street Fighter V, also strikes back in early Winter 2024. And finally, the legend himself, the beast, the transcendent Akuma will rage into Street Fighter 6 in Spring 2024! All four of these characters will be included as Masters in World Tour following their release and are also included in the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of Street Fighter 6.”

    Street Fighter 6 players may receive these DLC characters by purchasing the Year 1 Character Pass.
