Street Fighter 6 – World Tour Opening Movie: The Meaning of Strength is the intro of the story mode. All the characters from the leaks months ago are in this intro, except four characters.
Street Fighter 6 goes for a hip-hop theme from music and environment to the new characters. The African American male with a hood accent is used for the voice-over to push the Urban theme further.

There are noticeable changes to the concept art of the new character Lili because her tunic from the leaks is green, and now she is clad in white. A Street Fighter V character named G makes a cameo appearance in the game’s opening video despite not being revealed in the leaks. The thumbnail shows Luke, who Capcom is promoting to serve as the company’s new face. Ryu and Ken will always be the poster boys, but Luke will be the Protagonist of Street Fighter 6.
The characters not in the Intro are Akuma, Ed, Rasheed, and A.K.I. The three men are legacy characters, so there is a high chance they are on the initial roster or the first batch of DLC. A.K.I might be a different story, though. Capcom posted her back story on Twitter years ago. Capcom posted on their website a short novella titled Toxicity.
In that side story, Fang, one of the Villains of Street Fighter V, rescued a teenage girl from prostitution, and he trained her to be his apprentice. The Girl is from China, and her description fits well with A.K.I. Fans have suggested that A.K.I is indeed the Phantom character from the story stated earlier. Street Fighter is the only fighting game with no female Final Boss, which could be the opportunity for it. Street Fighter 6 is looking better than Street Fighter V already.
