With all eyes on the latest Evolution Championship Series EVO event, the fighting game community has been treated to a reveal of two new characters coming to Street Fighter 6. Fan favourite Juri will return as well as a brand new character Kimberly.
Kimberly is described as a “spunky new ninja,” with an infatuation for all things the ‘80s, from spraying cans and a Walkman with super bombastic colourful moves.
In a PlayStation Blog post, Takayuki Nakayama, the game director says that Kimberly is “an expert at running and airborne attacks,” with fast movement and a nice mixture of hard hitters and sneaky ninjutsu pounces. She certainly seems fun and many players will be eager to try her out.
Juri on the other hand first made her debut in Super Street Fighter 4 and has been a fan favourite ever since. She looks as fierce and brilliant as ever with her moves that burst of personality. She is making a comeback with a couple of her former moves but with slightly new tweaks, including her famous Shiku-sen from Super Street Fighter 4.
Street Fighter 6 is slowly becoming one of the most anticipated release in the franchise and with the return of Juri and the addition of a new female character Kimberly, many players will want to see what they bring to the table.
Although there’s no official release date for it yet, Street Fighter 6 is scheduled to release in 2023.
