In a somewhat unusual turn of events, Street Fighter 6 The developer Capcom has gone ahead and fully revealed the launch list for the upcoming fighter. Given that confirmed fighters have been slowly revealed in bits and pieces up to this point, it’s a bit strange to see all of them confirmed simultaneously. For example, just yesterday Capcom revealed that Ken, Blanka, E. Honda and Dhalsim will be part of the launch roster.
It’s possible that Capcom has finally decided to go ahead and confirm the previous leak of the game’s roster rather than slowly rolling it out. It’s also possible that the company wanted to reveal the opening film for the world tour, which they all happened to be in, so revealing the roster wasn’t an option. Either way, out of the full 18, only 11 were previously revealed, and the launch list doesn’t contain the full set of leaked characters either. New characters including Manon, Marisa, Lily, and JP have been confirmed. Returning characters include Dee Jay, Cammy, and Zangief. You can check out all of the above in the opening movie embedded below:
