Capcom has revealed two more fighters for their highly anticipated Street Fighter 6. The company made the reveal at the end of EVO 2022, unveiling two additional fighters for the fast-growing roster. Newcomer Kimberly will be joining the fight while fan-favorite Juri will once again be entering the fray. They join the previously announced Ryu, Guile, Chun-Li, Luke, and Jaime, and further gives an emphasis on the character roster leak that happened this past June, which so far has been correct.

Newcomer Kimberly comes from the US and is outfitted with a complete color palette due to her love of the 1980s. Her fighting style is that of Ninjutsu, one that definitely resembles Guy’s fighting style from both the Final Fight and Street Fighter franchises. This gives her the ability to run at extreme speed, which also gives her the benefit of jumping from wall to wall. The returning fighter, Juri, has become a fan favorite since her debut in Super Street Fighter IV, at the time a brand new fighter in the series. Her Korean fighting style is the same, with some tweaks allowing her to chain combo at a much faster pace. Her outfit has also been slightly altered to be more in line with the Street Fighter 6 aesthetic, but she still retains that classic smug Juri look.
The game was initially revealed this past February with little more than a name and a brief teaser trailer. Things changed in June during Sony’s State of Play when Capcom unleashed a whole plethora of information about Street Fighter 6, and they haven’t slowed down since. As the year progresses we’re more than likely in for more fighter reveals, and possibly some other surprises. Street Fighter 6 will launch sometime in 2023 and will be available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. You can check out our hands-on impressions of the game here.
