“We are supporting the biggest battle held by the Street Fighter V community by collaboration with [two of] the game’s stages. In recent years, more people have woken up to gaming receiving much more attention. We see countless competitors around the world who are showing their talents. Momofuku Ando, the founder of [Nissin Food Products Co., Ltd.], invented the world’s first instant noodles, Cup Noodle, which has been enjoyed by many competitors for being time-saving, allowing for them to hone their skills in their spare time. Cup Noodle wholeheartedly supports Street Fighter League: Pro-JP 2020 and the fiery passion of participating competitors. Hungry To Win!”

The Street Fighter series is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2022. Fans are excited following the announcement that Street Fighter 6 will be coming sometime in 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam!
Along with an announcement trailer, characters for the upcoming title have been revealed.

A new character for the sixth installment, Jamie, has also been revealed! The game will be powered by Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, previously used to develop Devil May Cry 5, Monster Hunter Rise, and Resident Evil Village. Early footage of the game is extremely smooth, bringing the classic fighting game into a new generation. Fans will be able to engage with three distinct game modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub.

Players can also engage an Overdrive Art similar to EX Special Moves from past titles.
Fans will notice the TV show-like quality of the announcement trailer. Streamers will find this an incredibly enjoyable game to play while chatting with viewers, as Street Fighter 6 will include real-time in-game commentary with audio recorded by “well-known talent from the fighting game community.”
