Today Capcom published a new video showing a match between two of the new characters debuting in Street Fighter 6, Marisa and Manon.
The match showcases three rounds, and I won’t tell you who wins, but it lets us appreciate how different the styles adopted by the two new ladies are.
Their sizes on screen are also appreciably different, which isn’t surprising considering that Marisa is the tallest female character to ever appear in the Street Fighter series.
You can check the action out below. Incidentally, the match is played by the developers, so it should be a good example of what the two fighters can do.
Both Marisa and Manon are fully new characters who never appeared before in the Street Fighter series. Here’s how Marisa is officially described:
“Marisa is an up-and-coming jewelry designer from Italy who claims ancestry to ancient Greek warriors. A powerhouse of a character, Marisa utilizes her long limbs to unleash slow yet gargantuan strikes like the devastating Gladius, defensive counter Scutum, powerful Quadriga kick, and the almighty Goddess of the Hunt. Bask in the scent of victory in Colosseo, Marisa’s stage, with battle-ready warriors in the background cheering you on.”
Manon is described as follows:
“A supermodel and world champion judoka, Manon struts the catwalk of street fighting to become the world’s strongest model. Manon’s move set is a graceful union between judo grappling and classical ballet with moves like the Manège Doré, Renversé, Pas de Deux, and more. Find her in the Fȇte Foraine stage in France, a dazzling carnival amidst the French skyline.”
Street Fighter 6 is releasing on June 2, 2023. This time around, it’s returning to its multiplatform nature, as it’ll launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. It’ll also come to the arcades via Taito, albeit that version won’t probably leave Japan.
