Zangief, Cammy, & Lily Street Fighter 6 gameplay shown during State of Play

We got our first look at the Red Cyclone, Killer Bee, and newcomer Lily during the PlayStation State of Play.


It was an awesome day to be a Street Fighter fan during the PlayStation State of Play. We got a look at three new characters’ gameplay during the presentation. Zangief and Cammy made their returns and newcomer Lily rounded out the trailer to give us the last major look at Street Fighter 6’s launch roster. We also got a look at some insanely cool easter eggs in the trailer. Did you catch them?

Capcom showed off the first reveal of Zangief, Cammy, and Lily gameplay during the PlayStation State of Play on February 23, 2023. Our first look was at Zangief, who ditched the speedo for full-legged tights. More importantly, Zangief has his chops, his spinning lariats, his Atomic Busters, and a few new tricks. Notably, we saw him set a stance for one move that then countered an opponent's normal for a reversal throw. He looks dangerous as ever up close.

Next up was Lily. A completely new character for Street Fighter 6, Lily is related to T. Hawk and it shows. She had the iconic dives upward and downwards, as well as a dazzling display of offense with her twin stick clubs.

Finally, we got our first major gameplay look at Cammy. Much like Zangief, she also put on pants for the first time ever in this one. She also brought her mixed style of grappling and kicks to play with the spinning fist, Cannon Drill/Spiral Arrow charging kick, dive kicks, and Cannon Spike anti-air. The coolest part came during the reveal of her super move, which showed off a deadly grapple that comes right out of her brief appearance in the Street Fighter 2 animated film.

Street Fighter 6’s roster is said to be complete. If a previous leak was to be believed, Ed and Akuma were still on the docket, but it will remain to be seen if we get them as DLC instead. Nonetheless, Street Fighter 6 is set to arrive in June 2023 and be part of EVO 2023, so stay tuned for more updates leading up to the game’s launch.

      I'm still a little unsure about She-Hawk but Gief and Cammy look really good. That nod to the SF2 anime for Cammy is pretty sick.

        Lily was my last hope for a character I may want to play in the launch roster, but she a bit too goofy.

            Guilty Gear always been wild like that for me.

            Street Fighter has had joke characters and goofballs before, but I'm not really drawn to them.

            It's less her persona and more her moveset, though. Like the tornado and flippy supers. It really looks out of place in this game, like they weren't trying at all and gave it some personality at the end with the mistake with that last one. Very forced and cringey to me, but the rest seems okay.

            I liked the clubs when I had only seen the leaked art, was hoping they'd be utilized a bit better in action.

      So it looks like he got Red Focus Crumple back but still no Green Hand.

        With parry being in I can see why they didn't bother with green hand.

        A perfect parrying Gief is probably going to be a nightmare.

        Really digging the fact that he's being given more wrestling movesets/tools.
