Street Fighter 6 is on the way, with a whole new cast of characters for players to master. Street Fighter 6 characters will consist of both veterans from prior games as well as first-timers new to the franchise. As characters are revealed, we're adding them to the list here. 

Before diving into this list, we'd like to point out this list is for officially confirmed characters. While massive parts of the roster for Street Fighter 6 have been credibly leaked (something amusingly acknowledged by Capcom), we're sticking to those officially confirmed by Capcom, just to be consistent.

Street Fighter 6 characters: Chun-Li
