Street Fighter 6 Rashid

Today Capcom released all the details and assets you need to know about the upcoming release of Street Fighter 6's first DLC character, Rashid. 

According to the press release, he will launch on July 24, 2023. We also get more details on his abilities. 

  • Arabian Cyclone: A new special move that performs a spinning kick and conjures up a whirlwind; can be used as a standalone blow, or transitioned into Rolling Assault or Wing Stroke
  • Arabian Skyhigh: A new double jump move that keeps opponents guessing on where Rashid will land from the air
  • Super Rashid Kick: Level 1 Super Art that unloads a devastating kick while soaring forward and up through the air
  • Ysaar: Previously Rashid’s V-Trigger move in Street Fighter V, this Level 2 Super Art summons a slow-moving whirlwind projectile that can be used to pressure opponents
  • Altair: Rashid’s Level 3 Super Art calls forth a tempest that lifts opponents before he rains down on them with a monsoon of powerful blows

If you'd like to see these moves in action, below you can take a look at his gameplay trailer, alongside the first official batch of screenshots and artwork. It's worth reminding you that a themed Fighting Pass is also available, offering goodies to celebrate Rashid's upcoming release.


Street Fighter 6 is currently available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. Additionally, an arcade version will be released through Taito, though it may only be available in Japan for the time being.

You can read our review of the game in which our Robert Scarpinito defined it as "one of the easiest on-ramps to the deep world of fighting games, appealing to casual players and veterans alike. With a diverse roster, meaty gameplay, and flashy animations," expecting the game to be an "FGC staple for years to come."

Besides Rashid, recently we learned that A.K.I., Ed, and Akuma will also come as DLC characters respectively in Fall 2023, Winter (after the new year in 2024), and Spring 2024. We also heard about a collaboration with the popular anime Spy x Family, but details are still scarce on that.
