At this week’s PlayStation Showcase, a brand new trailer highlighting the story mode, World Tour, was revealed. This is just one of the many modes available in the game at launch. A description of this mode can be found below:
Travel the world in your search for the answer to the question of… What is strength?
Jump in with your avatar, where legendary fighters await your arrival in the world of Street Fighter!
Your first destination will be Buckler Security, located in Metro City. This company trains new recruits in security detail. Here, Luke will act as your coach as you sign up for the basic training course, and this is where your story begins.
During your travels, you’ll face a number of trials and challenges. You’ll come across opportunities to prove yourself in street fights, meet legendary fighters, forge bonds and improve your abilities. As you grow stronger, you’ll face even stronger opponents.
If you’re looking for strength, then it’s high time to hit the streets!
Street Fighter 6 will launch with a roster of 18 characters. This consists of Luke, Jamie, Manon, Kimberly, Marisa, Lily, JP, Juri, Dee Jay, Cammy, Ryu, E. Honda, Blanka, Guile, Ken, Chun-Li, Zangief, and Dhalsim. The Year 1 DLC pass will contain characters Rashid, A.K.I., Ed, and Akuma.
Street Fighter 6 is scheduled to launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam on June 2, 2023.
