Full roster of 18 Street Fighter 6 launch day characters revealed

Following the Street Fighter 6 closed beta announcement yesterday, Capcom has now revealed the full roster of 18 characters coming to the fighting series’ latest installment on launch day.

Previously, Capcom confirmed that 11 of the characters should be playable in Street Fighter 6, offering a mix of familiar faces and all-new additions. The iconic likes of Chun-Li, Ryu, Ken, Blanka, Dhalsim, E. Honda, and Guile have all been confirmed, alongside more recent additions Juri and Luke. And as for the newcomers, “self-proclaimed Chinatown peacekeeper” Jamie and “devoted Bushinryu student” Kimberly have both been confirmed to be in the game.

To date, however, that 11-person roster has seen seven more additions, with Capcom having now announced the full launch day roster for Street Fighter 6. Series stalwarts Zangief, Cammy and Dee Jay are all present and correct, and the list of newcomers is complete with Manon, Marisa, Lily and JP.

Entries are open until September 30, and successful applicants will get their hands on eight playable characters – Luke, Jamie, Ryu, Chun-Li, Guile, Kimberly, Juri and Ken – as well as a selection of different modes, including training, ranked and casual matches and tournaments.
