As part of the EVO 2023 fighting game championship festivities, Capcom has made a number of Street Fighter 6-related announcements, including a cameo that’s got some serious Turtle Power.
That’s right, Street Fighter 6 is getting an exciting drop of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle content just in time for the new animated film, Mutant Mayhem, and it’ll let players embody their favourite Turtles in-game.
The crossover content includes TMNT costumes to dress up your in-game avatar fighter as Leo, Raph, Donnie and Mikey along with new emotes, Titles, TMNT stamps, in-game device wallpapers, camera frames in Photo Mode, and custom avatars for each turtle in World Tour and Battle Hub. The collab drops on August 8th, so within the next day or two (time zones permitting) which is exciting!
Check out a trailer for the Street Fighter 6 x TMNT content drop below:
“Cowabunga! Scarf down that slice of pizza and get ready for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles x Street Fighter 6 collaboration on August 8. Get radical with TMNT gear and emotes, new Titles, TMNT stamps, in-game device wallpapers, camera frames in Photo Mode, and turn your World Tour and Battle Hub custom avatar into your favourite turtle.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem comes to Aussie cinemas on September 7th.
Also revealed was the second character coming in Street Fighter 6’s Year 1 Character Pass, the “maniacal poison aficionado,” A.K.I. This new fighter will be dropping into the game sometime in Spring 2023. Check out the teaser trailer for A.K.I. below:
“A maniacal poison aficionado, A.K.I. can’t wait to sink her nails into her opponents as the second character from Year 1. Owners of the Deluxe and Ultimate Edition or the Year 1 Character Pass and Ultimate Pass of Street Fighter 6 will obtain A.K.I. when she releases in Spring 2023.”
We gave Street Fighter 6 an impressive 9/10 in our review earlier this year, saying “Street Fighter 6 rights the wrongs of its past with multiple modes for every player and strong battle systems like no other. It invites new players into the fold with well implemented, simpler control schemes, without losing sight of the hardcore player. The World Tour mode won’t be for everyone, but Street Fighter 6 stands tall as one of the best fighters Capcom has made.”
