Capcom Confirms Two New Street Fighter 6 Characters After Accidental Leaks

The Street Fighter 6 roster is gradually being revealed, with Kimberly and Juri as the latest entries. These new characters were first showcased in a leaked post on Capcom’s German Twitter account, and the company officially confirmed them shortly after.

Information for Street Fighter 6 is trickling out – an entry that is sure to be a hit among the fighting game community. And to promote the game, Capcom even started hands-on previews at Evo 2022, the world’s largest fighting game tournament.

But after a minor mess with their social media team, where Capcom Germany accidentally leaked the characters, Capcom officially confirmed two more characters: Kimberly and Juri.

Capcom wasn’t that subtle in the lead up to the reveal, as he downright portrayed the character in a huge bulletin in the Street Fighter 6 trailer.

Kimberly’s moves are teased in the video above, with a striking resemblance to Guy’s fighting style. She even has his signature aerial spin kick, but also has her own unique hip-hop charm.

As for Juri, she’s included in the reveal. Again, Juri doesn’t come as much of a surprise to the community for Street Fighter 6. She’s been popular since her debut, but has come a long way since her quest for revenge in Street Fighter 5.
