Street Fighter 6 is coming with all-new fits for its world warriors, but some looks just don’t die. That’s why Capcom confirmed the existence of Street Fighter 6 classic costumes for series OGs Ryu, Chun-Li, and Guile. The costumes were first revealed at Capcom’s SF6 panel at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
High-resolution screenshots of the Street Fighter 6 Classic Costumes were later uploaded to Capcom’s official Twitter account. Check them out in the gallery below.
The three costumes return Guile, Chun-Li, and Ryu to their appearances in Street Fighter II. Ryu once again wears his torn white gi, and is clean-shaven. Guile is back in his camouflage pants and olive-green tank top. Thanks to modern lighting and the game’s aesthetic, though, the colors are a bit closer to his Champion Edition look than Street Fighter I or II. Chun-Li wears her modified blue cheongsam, with the spiked bracelets, sheer tights, and white boots. The Street Fighter 6 Classic Costumes also enable Chun-Li to perform a new taunt animation, one that has its own hitbox.
The Classic Costumes will be available in-game as DLC. Capcom didn’t confirm the timing of the DLC. It also didn’t confirm if the DLC is free or costs money. Beyond just the classic costumes, it will, though, be adding other new looks. The SDCC panel highlighted a street wear costume for Luke, and another alternate costume for Jamie.
Street Fighter 6 launches on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2023. It will have rollback netcode, and potentially cross-platform play.
