Capcom fully unveiled a fresh bit of Street Fighter 6 content today during their new Metro City Academy stream show as they gave us Marisa’s character theme, Pankration, in full.
The hulking Italian brawler is a brand new addition to the franchise, and is themed around being a Spartan warrior and gladiator type fighter. Continue on to hear it for yourself.
Marisa’s grooving tune churns along at a medium pace compared to some of the other SF6 themes we’ve heard thus far, and that fits the character quite well as she certainly prefers power over swiftness.
Pankration bounces along with a fun combination of both the intensity of the fight and the fun of the game. It also has a bit of a darker sequence that’s a little set apart from the rest of the song.
Check out the full theme via the video right here and then hit us up in the comments section to let us know what you think of it. Is it your favorite of the bunch thus far, or do you prefer another one of the revealed Street Fighter 6 character tunes a bit more?
Street Fighter 6 is slated for release on June 2, 2023. It will launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and arcade.
