It's unclear what Capcom might have left to show for Street Fighter 6 as its launch roster is seemingly complete as of the reveals of Cammy, Zangief, and Lily. That said, we might get a bigger look at the single-player mode that has been previously teased in which players can take their created character and learn moves from Street Fighter characters around Metro City. It’s possible we could also get a tease of what DLC characters might be in the works, given that characters like Akuma and Ed were leaked, but never made an appearance for the launch roster.

With the final Street Fighter 6 showcase coming on April 20, 2023, stay tuned for news and reveals from the event right here at Shacknews.
