Capcom has officially announced a Street Fighter 6 Showcase, which will dive deep into the new features and gameplay modes fans can expect when the upcoming fighting game launches on 2 June 2023. The online showcase will contain around 30 minutes of ‘big news and announcements’ and, perhaps more importantly, will be hosted by rapper Lil Wayne, aka Weezy.

A brief trailer for the upcoming showcase features snippets of new in-game features, including flashy battles and exploration-based segments. These will be explained in greater detail on 20 April 2023, when Capcom and Weezy lift the lid on the highly-anticipated sequel.

Given the game’s full roster has yet to be officially revealed (though we have a good idea of who we’re yet to see), we’re likely to see more fighters join the game’s ranks in this upcoming presentation. We could also see more of the game’s World Tour mode, which will allow players to roam the streets of a city and participate in street fights in their quest to become the strongest hero.
