One of the worst kept secrets in gaming was the existence of Street Fighter 6. Rumors of a troubled development cycle forced the powers that be behind Street Fighter V to enact a fifth & final season of newly added characters. And ever since Luke came onto the scene, fans were left waiting for official news on the next entry in Capcom's most revered IP.
We finally got confirmation of Street Fighter 6 on February 21, 2022. The opening teaser trailer showcased a gruffer version of Ryu and an even more mature rendition of Luke squaring up as a pretty sick tune blared on in the background. Judging by the visual sheen put on display during that sneak peek, it became quite apparent that Capcom's RE Engine (which was used to develop games such as Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Devil May Cry 5, and Monster Hunter Rise) is being used to produce the amazingly lifelike visuals Street Fighter 6 is sporting.
Before the summer arrives and we finally get a deeper look at everything else Capcom's next major fighter features, I decided to have some fun with its launch roster picks. Here are the 18 other "World Warriors" I'd love to see join Ryu and Luke, plus five DLC picks that would make for great Season One roster additions.
