Street Fighter 6 adds Zangief, Cammy, and Lily to its launch roster

Street Fighter 6 is introducing one of the strongest rosters to date, bringing in a variety of classic and all-new fighters to its rather hefty roster. Are you ready to see if you have what it takes to become the strongest fighter on the block? Let’s find out.

The final roster characters for Street Fighter 6 have finally been revealed. We’re seeing a ton of new fighters both old and new making their way to the arena. Eight original legendary Street Fighter champions are making their return while four new favorites are returning, and six all new characters will be making their debut. Among the newest announced fighters to be added to the roster comes returning fighters Zangief and Cammy alongside the all-new contestant – Lily.

Players will get to bounce into the ring with Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Zangief, E. Honda, Blanka, Dahlsim, Cammy, Juri, Dee Jay, and Luke as some of their classic and returning fighters while Lily, Jamie, Kimberly, Manon, Marisa, and JP will be making their debut. The roster bolsters a total of 24 fighters in total for fans to test their skills with.

So let’s take a look at how Capcom is announcing this three all-new fighters:

Cammy: First appearing in Super Street Fighter™ II, the cat-loving Cammy returns with her beloved arsenal of high-powered attacks, including Spiral Arrow, Cannon Spike, and Hooligan Combination. The Heavy version of each of those three moves has been enhanced to allow for a delay which results in altered properties for some big damage. Visit King Street, Cammy’s foggy, industrial stage, and perform deadly Super Art moves like the Killer Bee Spin and Delta Red Assault to send opponents to their knees and get the crowd buzzing.

Zangief: Rumbling his way onto the scene is the immense Zangief, an original World Warrior who loves to show off for the crowd at Barmaley Steelworks. A professional wrestler by trade, Zangief keeps hold of his trademark throws like the Screw Piledriver and Siberian Express,  picking up new moves like the counter throw Tundra Storm. His Level 2 Super Art Cyclone Lariat and Level 3 Super Art Bolshoi Storm Buster are sure to be crowd-pleasers.

Lily: A new addition to the roster, Lily will seem familiar to some as she is a descendant of the Thunderfoot tribe, the same tribe as the iconic T. Hawk who was first seen in Super Street Fighter II. Small but mighty, Lily speaks with the spirits of nature at her home in the vibrant Thunderfoot Settlement and defeats enemies with her ferocious Condor Dive, Condor Spire, and Tomahawk Buster. Condor Wind will grant one Windclad stock, which powers up each of the aforementioned moves. Lily wields her war clubs to barrage opponents in her Level 1 Super Art Breezing Hawk and slams her enemies to the ground with her Level 3 Super Art Raging Typhoon.

Along with the new fighters, Capcom has revealed that Pre-Orders for Street Fighter 6 are now live and it will be brimming with content for fans to enjoy including new modes such as Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub.
