Street Fighter 6 art book teases the Bald Juri we’ve always wanted

A teasing look at the art book that comes packaged with the Street Fighter 6 Mad Gear Box, (that’s a “collector’s edition” to you and me), has given SF players a glimpse at some of the cool concept art that has gone into the redesign of the 18 World Warriors that feature in the fantastic-looking sequel. More importantly, however, it has offered us the hypothetical pleasures of a bald Juri.

The new images, pulled directly from the final draft of the art book, were shared on Twitter by Street Fighter 6 director Taka Nakayama, and offer a sneak peek at the initial design ideas for new characters such as Jamie and Kimberly, as well as the revitalized drips for veterans such as Chun-Li and Ryu. One teased page also features examples of the excellent fan art of the characters, drawn by attendees of the 2022 Tokyo Game Show.

All of the above, however, pales in comparison with a concept drawing of my home girl, sporting the shiniest of chrome domes. Shorn of her trademark hair buns, Juri is seen with the most perfectly beautiful orb cranium you ever did see, leaving us all to imagine the joys of a Juri “Cue Ball” outfit. Now, all jesting aside, this is clearly just a piece of concept art, designed purely to show the art team the structure of our favorite Korean buzzsaw — But still, I’ve seen it, you’ve seen it, and now it needs to become a reality. Bald Juri Alt Now.

The Street Fighter 6 Mad Gear Box is now available to pre-order from select retailers. It contains a copy of Street Fighter 6 on PlayStation or Xbox, the Year 1 Ultimate DLC pass, the art book, steelbook casing, a selection of stickers, and two figurines of Luke and Kimberly, as designed by quality merch-makers Pop-Up Parade. It should also be noted that the set is not cheap, retailing at a princely $249 USD.

Street Fighter 6 launches June 2, 2023 on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms. Be sure to check out the 50 things I loved in the beta, my impressions on the sequel so far, as well as my own suggestions on the 10 World Warriors who would fit right into the new title as post-launch DLC.
