In the first phase of the collaboration, Street Fighter 6 introduced avatars for Baki Hanma and Kaoru Hanayama. Later, developers added Doppo Orochi and Pickle to give players various options. As the celebration continues, players can delve even deeper into the Baki universe with additional rewards.
This collaboration pays homage to Baki’s legacy, introducing its universe to new audiences unfamiliar with the manga series. To clarify, Keisuke Itagaki created Baki the Grappler, a Japanese manga. It tells the tale of a teenage Baki Hanma who undergoes intense training and challenges. He engages in lethal, rule-free hand-to-hand combat against fighters proficient in diverse fighting styles. His ultimate goal is to ascend to the pinnacle of martial prowess and challenge the dominance of his formidable father, Yujiro. Yujiro is a ruthless individual whose sole purpose is to engage in combat and inflict pain on others. Baki sees him as the strongest being on Earth and will stop at nothing to surpass him.
Lastly, Street Fighter 6 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
