Street Fighter 6, the next installment in the Street Fighter franchise, featured in a series of announcements at the Evolution Championship Series (Evo) 2022, including those relating to new characters and new commentators in real-time.
Kimberly, the new ninja to join the franchise, and Juri, the sadistic thrill seeker returning from Street Fighter V , will join the Street Fighter 6 roster when it launches in 2023.
Famous fighting game commentators Tasty Steve and James Chen also join the talent roster for real-time commentary. Longtime Capcom Pro Tour veterans Tasty Steve and James Chen join Vicious and Aru as Street Fighter 6’s latest real-time commentators.
The two brand new Street Fighter 6 characters are sure to impress. Kimberly combines her ninja skills with her love of ’80s pop culture to create a thrilling yet dangerous fighting style. Juri returns in the role of villain and has added some new tricks to her move set so as to savor the suffering of her opponents. Kimberly and Juri join Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke, Jamie and Guile on the roster of announced characters.
Kimberly’s Super Arts are a rhythmic mix of quick ninja moves and vibrant city life.
Bushin Beats (1 Stock) – Kimberly rushes forward and knocks down an opponent, then follows up with a flurry of attacks. If a Shuriken bomb is loaded, Kimberly uses it to add additional damage.
Bushin Scramble (2 Stock) – Kimberly sends the opponent into the air and parkours along the edge of the stage hitting him with midair attacks, then ensnares him with a dive bomb-like attack.
Bushin Ninjastar Cypher (3 Stock) – Kimberly blasts an arsenal of spray cans around the opponent culminating in a graffitied tag on the ground.
All of Juri’s Super Arts come from his previous appearances but have been revised to be in line with the rest of Street Fighter 6.
Sakkai Fuhazan (1 Stock) – Juri fires multiple ki blasts with one kick followed by another giant ki blast to knock an opponent down.
Feng Shui Engine (2 Stock) – First appearing as an Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV and then as a V-Trigger in Street Fighter V, the Feng Shui Engine returns as Super Art. Juri unleashes the power of the built-in Feng Shui Engine in her eye, allowing her to cancel normal moves into other normal moves or even unique moves.
Kaisen Dankai Raku (3 Stock) – Straight from Super Street Fighter IV, Juri unleashes the full power of the Feng Shui engine to execute a brutal sequence of attacks in his own sadistic and vengeful style.
