Capcom revealed Street Fighter 6 will have a Game Face feature. This is a concept that lets people set a “tone” for a match before it starts. During the introduction, people will see the character’s faces before they begin. By pressing the directional buttons, you can show different emotions.
Here’s the video showing how Game Face will work in Street Fighter 6. It essentially shows a whole introduction to a fight. Luke and Ryu are going to face off against each other, and we see them walk to the stage together. Once the versus screen comes up, people see their faces. Someone can then press buttons to change their expressions. After that, we see Luke and Ryu’s introduction at the stage proper.
Show your attitude with the Game Face Feature in #StreetFighter6 by pressing directional buttons during the versus screen.
Scowl at your opponent, act all smug, or confuse them with a mixture of rapid emotions!

We also already have an idea of who will be present to make these “game faces” in Street Fighter 6 at launch. A leak showed 22 characters who will be in the roster. Capcom later acknowledged that. At the same time, it mentioned the game will use RE Engine.
Street Fighter 6 will come to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2023.
