Street Fighter 6 continues its path towards the launch of Tatsu with today’s PlayStation State of Play digital event, where three new characters were revealed, including the legendary Cammy and Zangief, plus newcomer Lily.
This trio of fighters completes a packed 18-character launch roster that includes the eight original Street Fighter™ world warriors (Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Zangief, E. Honda, Blanka, Dhalsim), four returning franchise favorites (Cammy, Juri, Dee Jay, Luke) and six new faces (Lily, Jamie, Kimberly, Manon, Marisa, JP) for players to test their mettle. Gamers around the world can get their hands on all the hard-hitting action of Street Fighter 6 starting June 2, 2023 on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
Cammy, Zangief, and Lily each bring their own personality and highly-skilled fighting experience to the game:
- Cammy – First appearing in Super Street Fighter™ II, cat-loving Cammy returns with her beloved arsenal of high-powered attacks, including Spiral Arrow, Cannon Spike, and Hooligan Combination. The heavy version of each of those three moves has been buffed to allow for a delay that results in altered properties for high damage. He visits King Street, Cammy’s misty industrial setting, and pulls off deadly Super Art moves like Killer Bee Spin and Delta Red Assault to bring opponents to their knees and send the crowds buzzing.
- Zangief: Making his way onto the scene is the massive Zangief, an original World Warrior who loves to show off to the crowd at Barmaley Steelworks. A professional wrestler by trade, Zangief keeps his signature throws like the Screw Piledriver and Siberian Express, picking up new moves like the Tundra Storm counter. His level 2 Super Art Cyclone Lariat and his level 3 Super Art Bolshoi Storm Buster are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
- Lily – A new addition to the roster, Lily will look familiar to some, as she is a descendant of the Thunderfoot tribe, the same tribe as the iconic T. Hawk first seen in Super Street Fighter II. Small but mighty, Lily speaks to the nature spirits at her home in the vibrant Thunderfoot Settlement and defeats enemies with her ferocious Condor Dive, Condor Spire and Tomahawk Buster. Condor Wind will grant a Windclad action, which empowers each of the aforementioned moves. Lily wields her war club to bombard opponents with her level 1 Super Art Breezing Hawk and slams her enemies to the ground with her level 3 Super Art Raging Typhoon.
Street Fighter 6 is available for pre-order now and represents the next evolution of the Street Fighter series with a combination of unique fighting game innovations and bursting with content across three all-new game modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour and Battle Hub. .
