Street Fighter 6 Director Says There are No Fei Long Legal Issues

Once again, there is confirmation the Bruce Lee estate doesn’t have any legal issues with the Street Fighter character Fei Long. The family’s official Twitter account in the past called such suggestions false. Now, Street Fighter 6 Director Takayuki Nakayama further confirmed that to Eurogamer at Summer Game Fest 2022 Play Days. [Thanks, Eurogamer!]

Here is the official statement Nakayama provided Eurogamer EIC Martin Robinson.

That whole Bruce Lee estate information they mentioned turned out to not be real. I can’t say whether he’s coming [to Street Fighter 6] or not, but there are definitely no legal issues.

A leak means we already know 22 of the characters who appear to be showing up in Street Fighter 6. Among the confirmed folks are Chun-Li, Guile, Ryu, Luke, and Jaime.

The last Street Fighter game with Fei Long in it is Street Fighter IV. While he wasn’t in the original arcade release, he showed up a little later in the console version.

Street Fighter 6 is in development for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC. It will launch in 2023. The most recent Street Fighter game with Fei Long in it is Ultra Street Fighter IV for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
