Following the reveal of the last three launch characters for Street Fighter 6, Capcom launched a special Japanese trailer featuring a nostalgic song. 

The trailer showcases both gameplay and cutscenes, providing a rather wide-ranging view of the game, including the activities in the new Battle Hub. 

Perhaps the most interesting part of the trailer is the image song "Itoshisa to Setsunasa to Kokoro Zuyosa to 2023" (This Love, This Pain, This Strength of Heart 2023) performed by Ryoko Shinohara and produced and written by t.komuro (also known as Tetsuya Kimuro)

The song will very likely prove familiar to fans of the series, as it appeared in the Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie anime during the iconic scene in which Ryu and Ken fight against M. Bison. 

You can watch the trailer and enjoy the song below.

We also get plenty of screenshots and an official description of the three characters revealed today, Cammy, Zangief, and the new fighter Lily

  • Cammy: First appearing in Super Street Fighter™ II, the cat-loving Cammy returns with her beloved arsenal of high-powered attacks, including Spiral Arrow, Cannon Spike, and Hooligan Combination. The Heavy version of each of those three moves has been enhanced to allow for a delay which results in altered properties for some big damage. Visit King Street, Cammy’s foggy, industrial stage, and perform deadly Super Art moves like the Killer Bee Spin and Delta Red Assault to send opponents to their knees and get the crowd buzzing. 
  • Zangief: Rumbling his way onto the scene is the immense Zangief, an original World Warrior who loves to show off for the crowd at Barmaley Steelworks. A professional wrestler by trade, Zangief keeps hold of his trademark throws like the Screw Piledriver and Siberian Express,  picking up new moves like the counter throw Tundra Storm. His Level 2 Super Art Cyclone Lariat and Level 3 Super Art Bolshoi Storm Buster are sure to be crowd-pleasers. 
  • Lily: A new addition to the roster, Lily will seem familiar to some as she is a descendant of the Thunderfoot tribe, the same tribe as the iconic T. Hawk who was first seen in Super Street Fighter II. Small but mighty, Lily speaks with the spirits of nature at her home in the vibrant Thunderfoot Settlement and defeats enemies with her ferocious Condor Dive, Condor Spire, and Tomahawk Buster. Condor Wind will grant one Windclad stock, which powers up each of the aforementioned moves. Lily wields her war clubs to barrage opponents in her Level 1 Super Art Breezing Hawk and slams her enemies to the ground with her Level 3 Super Art Raging Typhoon.

The trailer follows several gameplay clips showcasing full matches played by the developers including Marisa versus Manon herselfDee Jay versus Dhalsim, and Blanka versus JP. We recently also learned that Thea Trinidad, also known as WWE Superstar Zelina Vega, joined the growing roster of commentators for the Real-Time Commentary feature introduced for the game.

Street Fighter 6 is releasing on June 2, 2023. This time around, it's returning to its multiplatform nature, as it'll launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. It'll also come to the arcades via Taito, albeit that version won't probably leave Japan at least for the time being.
