Tomorrow, November 21st at 9pm EST we'll be hosting a special double elimination bracket on the FightRise Discord! A pristine hardcover copy of The Art of Street Fighter is up for grabs as the first place prize as well as various gift cards and other prizes for a conjoined "0-2 side bracket." I'm happy to say the One Fight Stand (OFS) bi-weekly tournament series has been a big hit for the FightRise Discord channel. It has accomplished many of the goals I had set out for when creating the series and this special tournament format feels like a fitting culmination of everything we've accomplished this year since the launch of Street Fighter 6.
Capcom HQ graciously invited some of your favorite content creators to come play Street Fighter 6’s near-final (if not final) build along with being able to capture footage. So, literally overnight we had a huge dump of Street Fighter 6 footage hit YouTube and Twitter. At this point, there’s so much footage out there, but I want to make sure we start to consolidate those video links here so you don’t miss a thing. Below, you’ll find most of the new Street Fighter 6 video from this private event released so far (as I’m sure more is to come imminently) - and all organized by creator or channel. Enjoy!
Capcom took their marketing game to a new level this year at the WWE Royal Rumble. Queen of the Ring, Zelina Vega, made her entrance into the ring done up as Juri. Her cosplay was spot on and next thing we know we have a giant Street Fighter 6 logo floating above the ring. You absolutely know the social media world was on fire talking about Zelina and Street Fighter 6. Well done, Capcom. I always had a sneaking suspicion that this was not going to be the last marketing surprise we saw from them. But, then, we had the Grand Finals of the Capcom Pro Tour come and go without a sneeze of anything new with Street Fighter 6. Even the playable demo they had at the finals was the same old beta from before despite having unveiled so many more characters.
And, just like that Capcom has bestowed upon us a new trailer for Street Fighter 6 finally unveiling Zangief, Lily, and, the long-awaited, Cammy! I have to say...watching this trailer, I was in utmost giddiness. First of all, I had no idea they were dropping the trailer like they were so it was very much a stealth drop to me. Second of all, as I watched each character grace the screen my grin got bigger and bigger. Every single one of these new three look phenomenal! I can't wait to play them. Besides the three new characters, we also got a look at each of their stages! That's three brand new, never before-seen stages for us to gander. But, if you haven't yet, please look for yourself:
