Street Fighter 6 introduces an entirely new feature to the franchise where players will have the option to listen to the voices of famous celebrities and commentators who narrate the action of matches while playing.
The concept was first introduced when both Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Arrow were revealed as the first two faces, but Capcom has been rolling out additional faces as either “color” or “play” commentators for the better part of last year. Today we got to know the final color commentator for Street Fighter 6.
There are both English and Japanese speakers in the lineup (four of each). A recent update on this front showed us that WWE’s Zelina Vega will be part of the commentator’s crew, revealed today as Japanese actress Hikaru Takahashi.
Born on September 22, 2001, she made her debut by winning the crown at the 14th Grand Prix of the Japanese Beauty Contest, and soon appeared in numerous commercials. After that, she started the talk of the country after appearing in the NHK historical drama “Naotora: The Lady Warlord” and other shows.
In addition to her work as an actress, she also appears regularly in fashion magazines, radio shows, and television programs covering a variety of genres.
The minute-and-a-half-long trailer not only lets us hear a sample of what Takahashi will look like in action, but it also gives us a few extra moments of footage of the match featuring Kami, Zangief, Lily, and Marissa.
Those of us hanging on to every bit of footage we can find for this upcoming title will definitely be excited to take apart this playthrough and see if we can’t tease any new revelations about how these characters will fight and flow in Street Fighter 6.
Check out Takahashi’s full intro video below and let us know which commentators (if any) you’ll be listening to once this game drops in June.
Street Fighter 6 is set to release on June 2nd, 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Xbox Series X | S, PC, and Arcade (Japan only).
