Make way for the return of fan favorites Zangief and Cammy in Street Fighter 6 along with the exuberant newcomer Lily. The bear, bird, and bee round out the diverse 18-character launch roster when Street Fighter 6 launches on June 2, 2023! Watch the trailer below for a look at what makes these three different characters unique.
The legendary grappler
One of the original World Warriors from Street Fighter II, Zangief is a colossal wrestler dedicated to physical improvement and instructing his students. Find Zangief flexing the beauty of his muscles in front of a raging crowd in Barmaley Steelworks, a steel mill known for its blast furnace. Yes, he wants you to look at his body.
As the first grappler in the Street Fighter series, Zangief still has his trademark throws like Screw Piledriver and Siberian Express – all of which have been in previous entries in some way or form. During his time teaching, Zangief has picked up a new move called the Tundra Storm, which can be used to counter an opponent’s grounded kick resulting in a damaging throw.
Zangief’s V-Trigger I Cyclone Lariat from Street Fighter V returns as his Level 2 Super Art where he rotates at high speeds while pulling in his opponent. As a consummate showman, Zangief turns on the pro wrestling flair in his Level
3 Super Art Bolshoi Storm Buster, where he lifts his opponent into the air and smashes them down head first.
One with the wind
Soaring in as a new character to Street Fighter 6, Lily is a descendant of the Thunderfoot tribe, the same tribe T. Hawk hails from. She speaks with the spirits of nature, trusting in their guidance as she travels the globe. Don’t judge a book by its cover—her small stature conceals truly gigantic power. Her home in the Thunderfoot Settlement is flush with vibrant colors and her people going about their daily lives. They revere Singing Wolf, the tribe’s eldest member.
Lily wields two war clubs in battle to harness nature and to pack a heavier punch. Being from the same tribe as T. Hawk, she flies towards enemies with Condor Dive, Condor Spire, and Tomahawk Buster. She can use her unique move Condor Wind to grant one Windclad stock, which powers up the aforementioned special moves.
Lily spins around enemies, barraging them with her war clubs in her Level 1 Super Art Breezing Hawk. Be wary of the full force of the Thunderfoot tribe in Lily’s Level 3 Super Art Raging Typhoon, a spinning throw where she slams her opponent into the ground twice in the same manner as T. Hawk.
Her mission continues
The cat-loving Killer Bee is back! Cammy first appeared in Super Street Fighter II and is a member of British special forces unit Delta Red where she currently works at HQ. She distinguished herself in the operation against Shadaloo, with which she shares a fated connection. Hyper-competent but somewhat moody, Cammy kind of hates everything – except cats – and is no stranger to a fight on the streets. Keen-eyed sleuths can spot her in King Street, a foggy corner dotted with vestiges of the Industrial Age.
Cammy fans will feel comfortable with her move set in Street Fighter 6, which improves on her legendary deadly moves. The Heavy version of Spiral Arrow, Cannon Spike, and Hooligan Combination can now be held down to delay the move while also changing its properties or damage. Cammy’s training back at HQ has also opened up more opportunities when using Hooligan Combination, but she wants that to remain confidential for now.
Known for her bone-crunching throws, Cammy’s Level 2 Super Art Killer Bee Spin will make you wince again as she performs a chokehold on the opponent. Cammy’s Level 3 Super Art Delta Red Assault showcases her skills as a member of the special forces as she sends opponents to their knees before a series of purr-fect high-speed attacks.
