The roster for Street Fighter 6 is still pretty bare, but we should expect the game to give us some new DLC characters as the year trudges along. Capcom has revealed four incoming fighters intended to drop in the first year of the game’s release.

Street Fighter 6 Reveals Incoming DLC Characters for Year 1

Here’s the official description:

Four fighters join the Street Fighter 6 roster in our first year after launch! Rashid returns in the Summer of 2023. A.K.I. struts into the roster in Autumn 2023. Ed strikes back in the Winter of 2024. The legend, the beast, the transcendent Akuma will rage into Street Fighter 6 in Spring 2024!

All four characters are also incorporated into World Tour, where you can learn their Special Moves and increase your bond. Year 1 Characters are also included in the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of Street Fighter 6.

The new character coming in the past is AKI, who looks like some kind of robot lady, which shouldn’t be that weird for a franchise like Street Fighter. Rashid and Ed were both playable characters in Street Fighter V, and Akuma has been hanging around since Street Fighter II; with SFV giving Akuma a new, more fiery appearance, this DLC version looks to have been changed even more, with him having white hair.

We don’t know who else could be coming to the game, but many people are excited for some familiar characters to be coming back. Hopefully, we get a gameplay reveal soon.

Street Fighter 6 launches for PlayStation 4|5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on June 2, 2023.
