Slated to arrive next year, Street Fighter 6 is the most ambitious entry in Capcom’s acclaimed fighting game series to date. Although it’s a familiar return to form, the next installment has a few new tricks up its sleeve. One of them is the single-player mode titled World Tour.
While single-player adventures aren’t new to fighting games, Street Fighter 6 is changing the rules as it will feature a fully fledged open world. Here is an overview.
Street Fighter 6’s World Tour mode is a step in a new direction for the series
The World Tour takes place in the vast open world of Metro City. It is a single player affair where players will start in Buckler Security. The customizable protagonist (another new introduction) will be trained by Luke, the DLC character from Street Fighter 5. This training session is where players can familiarize themselves with the game mechanics.
Ultimately, the goal is to get stronger by taking on new challengers and participating in street fights. This is what Metro City is known for. Along their journey, players will also encounter legendary fighters – or more accurately, the game’s roster.
These include returning characters like Ryu and Guile and newcomers like Jamie and Kimberly. However, there are plenty of locations to explore as players will travel the world in their quest to gain more power.
They’ll learn new moves and abilities, and many of them will serve more than just combat functions. Players must progress past roadblocks and hazards that cannot be overcome by normal traversal options.
An example is a spinning kick that allows you to hover in the air. Players will use it to cross huge gaps. A similar dash motion also sees the protagonist teleport in and out of existence.
The open world will feature destructive elements and may feature traditional collectibles, side missions, activities, and more. Shops are confirmed additions, as players can use them to customize their character’s attire. A variety of cosmetic options will be available, from clothing to accessories.
How detailed is character customization in Street Fighter 6?
Street Fighter 6’s character creator seems to be quite comprehensive. The ongoing beta test as well as recent TGS 2022 images have leaked new details about the planned feature.
From body types to presets, players will have full creative control over their protagonist’s design. All details are available for modification, including eyes, ears, physique, hairstyle, height and more. Even minute body parameters like lats and traps can be changed.
Those who have accessed the closed beta have already created some weird and hilarious avatars. What kind of character will you be? Street Fighter 6 is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in 2023.
