“Street Fighter 6” announces newcomer Kimberly and re-introduces Juri
In the newest trailer for Street Fighter 6, the world gets a glimpse of two characters: the newest ninja on the roster, Kimberly, and the return of Han Juri. The video shows off spunky newcomer Kimberly, armed with spray paint cans and a portable cassette tape. Her energy is always high as she takes on the fiercest opponents, ending each win unsatisfied when they tap out. Meanwhile, sadistic, thrill-seeker Han Juri bulldozes right back into the game series with her motorcycle. As usual, the fighter leaves no room for mercy in each fight.
Street Fighter 6 will come out on Xbox, Steam, PS4 and PS5 next year.
Bandai Namco confirms “Tekken 7” update and more teases
At EVO 2022, video game giant Bandai Namco shares the future of Tekken 7. The Global Finals of Tekken World Tour will end in up Amsterdam from February 4 to 5, 2023. Plus, players can look forward to a free update that includes battle balance adjustments. But wait there’s more. At the end of the trailer, they show the scene of Kazuya Mishima throwing Heihachi Mishima, his father, off a cliff. Then, Kazuya’s 1994 PlayStation render gets replaced with a modern version and a gleaming eye. Finally, a voice-over proclaims, “Get ready,” before the screen fades to black. While Bandai Namco is yet to elaborate on the cryptic ending, some fans can’t help but wonder if an original Tekken reboot is on the way, or if it points to the possibility of Tekken 8.
