‘Why that cover?’
We’re now only a few short weeks away from the highly anticipated launch of Street Fighter 6, but Capcom isn’t done with the marketing machine just yet — Tomorrow, two of the scrapper sequels top-tier developers will host a special live stream in order to field questions from budding World Warriors.
Street Fighter 6 director Takayuki Nakayama and producer Shuhei Matsumoto, both of whom have been quite candid in their comments on the series in general and the new title in particular, will answer queries pulled from the official Street Fighter Reddit, which is already filling up with Qs pertaining to Street Fighter 6, its mechanics, roster, features, themes, and development cycle. My favorite so far is “Why are Luke’s forearms so big? Is there lore behind this?”
Capcom has been quick to note that there will be no major announcements made during the stream, so it won’t be concluding with a new trailer or character reveal. But for those die-hard fans who really want to get into the weeds of Street Fighter 6 and its new direction, this should make for an interesting stream. The action kicks off on Friday, May 12, at 14:00 PT / 17:00 ET over on the CapcomFighters Twitch channel. You can be sure that I’ll be quick to give you all a heads-up on any particularly cool or interesting info right here on Destructoid.
Street Fighter 6 launches June 2 on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms. In the meantime, check out our recent report on a full build, the internet’s joy at Cammy’s new friend, and the 10 characters that I think who make a fine fit as post-launch DLC.
