Capcom made several Street Fighter 6 announcements at EVO 2022.
An action-packed Evolution Championship Series 2022 had multiple Street Fighter 6 announcements, including reveals for new characters and additional real-time commentators.
Kimberly is the newest ninja to join the franchise. Meanwhile, sadistic thrill-seeker Juri returns from Street Fighter V. The fighting duo makes its way to the starting roster when the fighting game launches in 2023. Meanwhile, renowned fighting game commentators Tasty Steve and James Chen head to the mic as additional real-time commentary talent.
Here are more details from Capcom:
The two newest Street Fighter 6 characters are sure to deliver a knock out. Kimberly blends together her skills as a ninja with her love for ‘80s pop culture to create a riveting, yet dangerous fighting style. Juri returns as a wicked force and has added a few new tricks to her move set so she can relish in her opponents’ suffering. To go in-depth on each of their moves, please visit the Capcom News Blog. Kimberly and Juri join Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke, Jamie, and Guile on our roster of announced characters.
Tasty Steve and James Chen, longtime veteran casters on the Capcom Pro Tour circuit, join Vicious and Aru as the latest real-time commentators in Street Fighter 6. Players can listen in as their favorite fighting game commentators narrate the hard-hitting action with easy-to-understand gameplay explanations.
