Street Fighter 6 Gets a New Trailer and Battle Hub Mode at Capcom TGS Showcase – Effinate Games


The Street Fighter series dates back to the late 80s. Capcom’s arcade fighting game set a benchmark for the genre. The last game in the series was Street Fighter 5, which came out in 2016. So it was about time we got a new entry. Capcom finally dropped one announcement trailer for Street Fighter 6 earlier this year with a 2023 release timeframe.

Today at Capcom’s Tokyo Game Show we got a new trailer with a more in-depth look at the game. The trailer shows off all the new game modes and characters arriving next year. In particular, the main emphasis has been placed on a new Batlle Hub mode.

Battle Hub mode for Street Fighter 6

The Battle Hub seems like a pretty interesting idea and something we haven’t seen in the game before. Here is the brand new trailer for you showing off the new mode:

To understand the Battle Hub mode, you must first understand the context of using another new mode called World Tour. In the world tour, you will create your own avatar (which has tons of customizations) and fight all over the world to become the strongest fighter.

In the Battle Hub, you’ll use the avatar you created in the World Tour to connect with other fighters. You can start an in-game match by simply sitting at an in-game arcade. It’s a bit like going to an arcade (mostly).

There are also customizations in the Battle Hub. You can customize your character with different outfits and other cosmetic items in the shops. And the most fun thing about this mode is that you can even taste nostalgia and play older Street Fighter games. Some arcade machines will have older SF games, so if you want to play Street Fighter 2, you can use one of the arcades to do so.

There will also be a DJ stand, through which you can liven up the room. There will also be a photo spot where you can take pictures to celebrate your victories. According to the game’s developer: ‘We’re developing Battle Hub to be a place you’ll want to visit every day’. And if the game is developed as promised, we don’t see why not.

The closed beta test for Battle Hub will take place from October 7th to October 10th. You can cross-play between PS5, Xbox Series X and S and Steam. The full game launches next year and will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows.
