Like the initial logo shown for Street Fighter 6, many fans are asking Capcom to change the game’s official box art, and it looks like some of those involved with the project have caught wind of the uproar.






Aleks Le, the English voice actor for Luke, saw all the comments about how strange the character looks on the cover, so he decided to have a little fun and design his own.









The first is a sketch of Luke performing the popular pointing meme with Ryu in the background, and then he went back a bit later and added Jamie and Ken to the mix too.



He also used this opportunity to not only joke around but to share a message with fans that he hopes more people give Luke a chance in the full game because there’s been quite a bit of ire directed at SF6’s new protagonist.


We can certainly assure him though that it has nothing to do with his performance because everything we’ve heard so far is pretty top notch.


While I’m not going to be dismissive of those who do have genuine complaints about Luke’s role or portrayal, Street Fighter does have a long history of protagonists past Ryu not receiving much love from the community initially.



We’ve seen it time and time again with Alex being the weird brawler / grappler that no one asked for in Street Fighter 3 followed by Abel in Street Fighter 4 and then Rashid in SF5.


Maybe less so for Rashid upon his first reveal, but definitely so once people had to start fighting against him.


Alex is now a beloved fan favorite to many, and the nightmares of Able FADC into Ultra are mostly a distant memory.


How Luke’s perception in the wider community will change as the game comes out and time moves forward remains to be see, but his stock can really only go up if anything.
