Street Fighter 6 will have a closed beta in October

Capcom has just announced the dates for the next closed beta test of Street Fighter 6.

The dates were shown as part of Capcom’s Tokyo Game Show live stream event earlier today, which also included a new look at parts of the game and some returning fighters.

Series veterans Ken, Blanka, Dhalsim, and E. Honda have all been confirmed as returning characters in the roster. Footage from the Battle Hub showed a game center filled with arcade cabinets for players to battle against.
