Street Fighter 6 Is Coming, But Before That, Another Fighter Collection From Capcom [VIDEO]

It was easy to guess that Capcom was teasing a new instalment of Street Fighter on its countdown page, but the Japanese publisher also announced the Capcom Fighting Collection.


Capcom has officially announced Street Fighter 6. One of its designers is Yusuke Hashimoto, who produced the first instalment of Bayonetta and directed the second has now “returned home” from PlatinumGames, a group of ex-Capcomers, and confirmed it on Twitter. Capcom producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya, also on Twitter, said that he was working on the Street Fighter series. And that’s all we know about the game at the moment aside from Ryu and Luke fighting in the teaser video: Capcom will release more details later this summer, so we have no idea when it will arrive or when it will come. Will Xbox be one of the target platforms this time? They were left out of the previous episode…

Then there’s Capcom Fighting Collection. Here’s Capcom’s overview: “Fighting fans can celebrate 35 years of Capcom fighting games with Capcom Fighting Collection, an anthology of 10 classic titles—including the complete Darkstalkers series together for the first time outside of Japan. Each of the ten titles in the collection has been revitalized with online multiplayer, enhanced features, and quality of life updates.

Capcom Fighting Collection unites all five Darkstalkers games, including Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge, Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire, and previously Japan-only titles Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers’ Revenge and Vampire Savior 2: The Lord of Vampire. The anthology also features the first release of Red Earth outside arcades. It is joined by fan favourites Hyper Street Fighter II: The Anniversary Edition, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix, and Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness. These classics rank among the most acclaimed fighting games to appear in arcades and introduced the world to many iconic and beloved characters ranging from Chun-Li to Morrigan Aensland.

[…] Players can now take the fight online to showcase their abilities in all ten titles across ranked, casual, and lobby matches with up to nine players. Online Play will be supported with rollback netcode for a solid and stable online experience! Training Mode has been added to each game to allow fans to hone their skills and master their favourite characters. Note: Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo does not have a training mode option. Spectator Mode is available, so you can sit back and enjoy watching friends duke it out. […] The in-game Museum comes with a gallery of more than 500 pieces of official art, concept art and design documents, plus over 400 music tracks,” Capcom wrote.

Capcom Fighting Collection will launch on June 24 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC for 40 dollars. It will also be available in retail.
