Street Fighter 6 has been revealed, and it will arrive this summer. We know very little about the next fighting game at this stage – the trailer only shows the main character of the series as Ryu and the final Street Fighter V character Luke – but we do know a little bit about it. at least one designer on the team. The presence of Yusuke Hashimoto made fans extremely excited.
He revealed his involvement on Twitter, announcing that he had joined the Street Fighter 6 team as “one of the game designers”. That title of “game designer” is obviously very broad, but Hashimoto has had a pretty solid career. Previous jobs include directing Bayonetta 2 and Star Fox Zero, as well as key positions on multiple Resident Evil titles. Super Smash Bros. credits. Ultimate also includes a special thank you for his initial supervisory work on the game. This won’t be Hashimoto’s first round with Street Fighter either – he’s an object designer on Alpha 3.
The replies to Hashimoto’s tweets were largely congratulatory, but surprisingly they contained very little mention of his past work. The Mainline Street Fighter games don’t include guest characters, but Bayonetta would certainly be an interesting addition. Instead, most of the questions refer to the game’s platform and logo, which is big departure from the traditional style. As far as platforms are concerned, Street Fighter V never came to Xbox, so there’s an understandable concern about this next game following in its footsteps.
