Capitalism and Crypto breaks all

This weekend saw UDON Comics publish the first issue of Street Fighter 6, a new comic that acts as a prologue to the events of Capcom’s upcoming sequel — Issue #1, which is available to download for free right here, follows the journey of Ken Masters, as he visits the worryingly militant district of Nayshall.

Ken is bringing his conglomerate, The Masters Foundation, to the recently founded nation in order to run a lucrative fighting tournament, working alongside the nation’s sinister minister Johann Petrovich, known to most as simply “JP”. Ken is not quite the man he used to be, however. Not only is he estranged from his wife, Eliza, but he is worrying the board of his foundation, having divulged company funds into unstable markets, such as cryptocurrency.

Moreso, Ken has been neglecting his growing son, Mel, who in the issue has been offloaded on PMC cop and SF6 poster boy, Luke Sullivan. If all of this wasn’t enough, Ken is quickly learning that Nayshall, the locale for his latest pipe dream, is hardly the free-est of states, plagued with violent revolution over its recent gentrification. This has brought anger to the nation’s people — anger that Mr. Masters is set to face first-hand.

The first issue not only gives fans a little insight into the politics of Nayshall itself, but also introduces us to the frightening JP, gives us a little time with Luke, (I just don’t like the dude), and sets the paving for the events that will lead to Ken’s rough fall from grace. Yer boy is going to need some serious guidance, and soon. Hopefully, he’ll eventually get it, perhaps delivered in the vessel of his dearest friend and rival.

Street Fighter 6 launches June 2 on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.  Be sure to 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.
