On June 2, the highly anticipated game launched for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. One of the game’s exciting new features is real-time commentary, where renowned fighting game community commentators provide insightful analysis throughout the match.

The game’s roster boasts both familiar and fresh faces. Returning favorites like Ryu, Chun-li, and Luke, the final DLC character for Street Fighter V, make a triumphant comeback. Joining them is Jamie, an exciting newcomer who showcases breakdancing kickboxing skills. Additionally, the launch lineup features Manon, Kimberly, Marisa, Lily, JP, Juri, Dee Jay, Cammy, E. Honda, Blanka, Guile, Ken, Zangief, and Dhalsim.

A novel addition to the fighting mechanics is the Drive system, which empowers players with a resource gauge to execute five distinct techniques. These include a super armor move, a parry, EX (enhanced) special moves, a forward-moving rush attack, and a low damage reversal. Moreover, the game offers both a classic control scheme and a “modern” control scheme that simplifies special move inputs.

In addition to the familiar fighting game modes such as local and online versus, arcade mode, and training mode, the game introduces a captivating single-player “World Tour” mode. Furthermore, the innovative “Battle Hub” provides players with fresh avenues for engagement, communication, and interaction. An optional versus mode called “Extreme Battle” brings even more excitement, incorporating interactive items, stage elements, and diverse objectives into the fights.
