A Free Trial of Street Fighter 6 Now Available on PlayStation

Capcom’s highly anticipated fighting game Street Fighter 6 is set to launch in just over a month. Exciting news from the recent Street Fighter 6 Showcase, hosted by Lil Wayne, reveals that the game now has a demo available on PlayStation 4 and PS5, with a future release planned for PC and Xbox Series X on April 26.

During the showcase, producer Shuhei Matsumoto explained that this demo offers players the opportunity to create a character that they can carry over to the full game release. Additionally, players can experience the start of the World Tour and engage in matches in the Fighting Grounds. This demo, being exclusive to PlayStation for now, provides a taste of what players can expect before the game’s official release.

Aside from the demo, the Street Fighter 6 Showcase brought several other exciting announcements. The event kicked off with a new trailer showcasing the World Tour and Battle Hub modes. In the World Tour mode, players will explore a new location called Nayshall. In the Battle Hub, players can engage in fights with their created characters at the center of the hub.

Game director Takayuki Nakayama delved deeper into the World Tour mode, revealing that players begin their journey in Metro City, where they receive training from Luke. Players will enhance their skills, level up, and learn powerful moves. Throughout the various locations in World Tour mode, players will also have the opportunity to build friendships with Masters like Chun-Li, granting them access to unique moves. Customization is a key aspect, allowing players to personalize their character’s moveset. Additionally, players will encounter other characters that don’t belong to the main roster but were developed using the same skills.

Following a brief recap of the Battle Hub features, the spotlight shifted to the Fighting Grounds. Capcom shared that fighters’ outfits will visibly wear down over time. The game offers sound cues for specific move types and distance, enhancing accessibility. Moreover, an offline-only AI-assisted gameplay style called Dynamic was introduced. The showcase also demonstrated the Arcade Mode, where players can earn illustrations for each fighter and compete for the highest online ranking score.

Street Fighter 6 offers a wealth of content, including detailed fundamentals and player-specific tutorials, Team Battles, Extreme Battles with unique stage gimmicks, Ranked Matches, Casual Matches, and the ability to create custom rooms for online play. Furthermore, Capcom teased players with a glimpse of what’s to come after the game’s launch. The first year of support will introduce four new characters: Rashid (summer 2023), A.K.I. (autumn 2023), Ed (winter 2024), and Akuma (spring 2023).

If you needed any more convincing, this presentation surely had something to win you over. Mark your calendars for June 2, when Street Fighter 6 releases for PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X.
