Here’s the first look at Street Fighter 6: Type Arcade’s cabinets

Street Fighter’s legacy with the arcade scene dates back further than most video game franchises have existed, and while the experience isn’t as widespread as it once was, Capcom is still sticking to those roots moving forward.

The Japan Amusement Expo 2023 this weekend offered the public’s first chance to see Street Fighter 6: Type Arcade and its cabinet where players will soon be seated.

Pictures of the machine from the JAEPO indicate that SF6 will likely look very similar to Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition using the Taito Type X4 hardware, which the new game also appears to run on.

Unless Capcom pays for some upgraded parts, this means that Street Fighter 6: Type Arcade will look more like the PlayStation 4 version of the game rather than the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S.

Other than the color of the case being changed to an orange shade to match SF6’s logo, the case itself also looks almost identical to SF5’s, including the USB port that allows players to plug in their own controllers if they don’t do not want to use the building. -in stick.

However, since this is just a demo cabinet, it may continue to undergo more changes before release.

It’s not confirmed, but it appears that this SF6 demo only features the same 8 characters from the first 2 closed beta tests, as the arcade demo only features the movesets for Ryu, Luke, Chun-Li, Ken, Guile, Kimberly , Juri and Jamie contained .

As previously reported, Taito also showcased a special exhibition SF6 set between pro players BC|Kazunoko and CO|Dogura at the JAEPO, which also supposedly revealed the first gameplay footage of Type Arcade.

Unfortunately, the official Taito broadcast archive seems to have been cut just before the Street Fighter 6 segment, so we haven’t been able to find said footage from the event yet.

With an apparent ban on outdoor photography and video recording at the machines, it can also be difficult to find decent footage of event attendees.

There is a good chance that the Kazunoko vs. Dogura set will be uploaded as an individual feature, and we’ll keep our eyes peeled for what pops up.

Street Fighter 6: Type Arcade is slated for a 2023 release in Japan, while the home version of the fighting game is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox and PC on June 2nd.
