Street Fighter 6 is getting its own “Special Program” live stream at the Tokyo Game Show
The Tokyo Game Show is about a month away and Capcom will have a presence at the convention, as it has for many years. This time around, however, a Street Fighter 6-specific live stream will be broadcast, and we’re pretty sure we’ll get some new information.
As detailed on Capcom’s Tokyo Game Show schedule page, the Street Fighter 6 special will air on Friday, September 16 at 11:00am ET / 8:00am PT. The content of the stream is unknown, but it’s easy to make an educated guess as to what we might be seeing. The Tokyo Game Show is an ideal place to unveil new characters – newcomer Kimberly and veteran Yuri were just introduced at EVO 2022. Also, the question of whether or not Fei Long will be in Street Fighter 6 has yet to be definitively answered.
Street Fighter 6 will be the first game in the series to feature in-game commentary. More English-speaking commentators were also announced at EVO, and it would make sense to introduce more Japanese voice-overs at Tokyo Game Show. Only one is currently on the list.
A release date could potentially be part of the TGS presentation as well. For now, all we know is that it’s coming sometime in 2023, heading to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. The Xbox release is notable as not a new Street Fighter game has been released on this platform in over a decade. Street Fighter 6 will also feature crossplay between these three platforms.
Prior to the Street Fighter-focused stream, Capcom will air a general presentation. That’s set for Thursday, September 15 at 10am ET / 7am PT. Likewise, we don’t know exactly what the stream will contain, but the site has images of the recently released Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, as well as future titles Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection and Exoprimal. These will also be playable in the TGS exhibition area.
