Street Fighter 6: Full Launch Roster Revealed

In a somewhat unusual turn of events, Street Fighter 6 developer Capcom has gone ahead and completely revealed the launch roster for the upcoming fighter. Given that confirmed fighters had been slowly revealed in bits and pieces up to this point, it's a bit odd to see all of them confirmed at once. For example, Capcom only just yesterday revealed that Ken, Blanka, E. Honda, and Dhalsim would be part of the launch roster.

It is possible that Capcom finally decided to just go ahead and confirm the previous leak of the game's roster rather than slowly roll them out. It's also possible that the company wanted to reveal the World Tour opening movie, which happens to have all of them in it, so not revealing the roster wasn't an option. Either way, out of the full 18, only 11 had been revealed previously, and the launch roster does not contain the full set of leaked characters either. New characters confirmed include Manon, Marisa, Lily, and JP. Returning characters include Dee Jay, Cammy, and Zangief. You can check out all of the above in the opening movie embedded below:

Specifically, and as mentioned in the embedded tweet above, the full 18-fighter launch roster for Street Fighter 6 includes the following characters:

  • Blanka
  • Cammy
  • Chun-Li
  • Dee Jay
  • Dhalsim
  • E. Honda
  • Guile
  • Jamie
  • JP
  • Juri
  • Ken
  • Kimberly
  • Lily
  • Luke
  • Manon
  • Marisa
  • Ryu
  • Zangief

In general, Street Fighter 6 is set to release for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC in 2023. No definitive release date beyond that has been announced. The game includes several different game modes like Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub. The Street Fighter 6 Closed Beta Test is set to run from October 7th through October 10th on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
