Street Fighter fans are probably raving about everything they’ve seen or heard about Street Fighter 6 so far. The game was first announced in February with a “massive” teaser starring Ryu and Luke. Eventually, we learned that Chun-Li and Jamie will also be part of the roster along with an open world feature. We recently learned at Summer Game Fest that America’s hero Guile will be joining the fight.
However, fans of the series were eagerly awaiting a certain piece of information that has now seemingly been revealed.

Unfortunately for Capcom – which appeared to be planning a reveal for individual character reveals – the game’s entire roster was leaked online. The list includes familiar faces like Ryu, Ken, Zangief, Dhalsim, Honda, Blanka, Guile, Chun-Li, Cammy, Dee Jay, and Akuma, as well as newer ones like Rashid and Luke. Jamie was only recently introduced, while six of the characters on the leaked list are entirely new. Character descriptions have also been leaked in case you want to get an idea of the new fighters.
