Street Fighter 6 is coming in a few days, So to give the game more hype Capcom and Red Bull revealed the story behind How the new faces made it to the game. This video clip shows the early concepts of some of these new challengers. Capcom played safe when it comes to returning characters since the majority of them are from Street Fighter II. Capcom is still hesitant to not include characters from that iconic sequel after the risk they did with Street Fighter III almost killed the series. Of the returning characters only Juri, Rashid, Luke and Ed are not from Street Fighter II. I wish to see representation for Alpha, II, IV, Final Fight, and Rival Schools(it is part of the Street Fighter Universe).
The Street Fighter Universe expands in multiple Capcom games. This Capcom Franchise has shared Universe with multiple games. Akira Kazama just debuted as a Street Fighter character. However, she is not the only Rival schools character on the roster. Sakura joined the roster of Rival schools because Capcom wanted Street Fighter players to play Rival schools.
Who’s left to add to Street Fighter V Arcade Edition? Plenty, if you start mining other games. Capcom is adding two additional characters from the Final Fight series, both of which have been demanded for some time: Poison and Lucia Morgan. Plus, the very last character from the original lineup that wasn’t in the game yet: E. Honda.
