Evo 2022 provided players with an opportunity to try out the Street Fighter 6 demo featuring Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke, and Jamie. Luckily for the rest of us, Capcom allowed players to capture footage of their matches.
Over on Brian_F’s YouTube channel, a video showcasing a set between RobTV’s Ryu and Brian_F’s Jamie can be watched. Since these two apparently spent a lot of time testing mechanics, this meant that they only had enough single first-to-three set.
As expected of RobTV, he’s able to rely on fundamentals and footsies with Ryu to bully Brian_F’s Jamie. While Street Fighter 6 appears to have a heavy emphasis on offense, RobTV is able to use Ryu’s fireballs to effectively keep Jamie at bay.
Despite this, Brian_F was able to corner RobTV on multiple occasions. Though Jamie is a character that’s new to the Street Fighter series, Brian_F showcased exactly how to make use of the newcomer’s Rekka strings and dive kick.
However, Brian_F noted that both he and RobTV were new to Street Fighter 6, and the televisions present at Evo 2022 were laggy. Evidently, he feels like the gameplay showcased here was “pretty weak.”
Still, I can’t help but feel like both players were able to provide a small taste of what high level fighting game fundamentals can do in Street Fighter 6’s environment. Check it out below:
