Capcom is betting on all of them. Street Fighter 6, A game that will follow the company’s popular fighting game franchise. The focus is on giving the franchise a major overhaul, which has been hit hard by the negative reception of the last title released, Street Fighter V, and, for that matter, one of the developers’ main focus is gameplay.
The idea is to please both players who are already fans and have been following for years, as well as beginners who are not very familiar with the game of fighting.
Capcom is developing two control schemes to please players: the first will be a “classic”, where combos and special movements will be performed in the same way as in older games – pressing a tight set of buttons to move, Such as franchises such as King of Fighters or Martial Arts.
The second would be “modern”, which is simple, and consists of the use of only the directional buttons – either side – added to the action buttons to perform special movements – which makes it easier for those who are more familiar with it. Are not.
Fighting games love it or hate it. In general, there is no middle ground, either the player is very good or he is very bad – like the journalist who writes this story.
The idea of a “modern” control scheme accommodates audiences who have difficulty learning the intricacies of “classic” controls within the game. In addition, it opens up the possibility of reaching new audiences who are not interested in fighting games, as it will be much easier to start playing.
One reason for the change in controls is the emergence of fighting games with simple controls, which are likely to reach more gamers, such as Mortal Kombat 11, which eliminates the logic of having super-complex controls in games of this genre.
Fighting games do not require a complex set of controls, as it keeps many gamers out of the genre. Capcom’s effort is noteworthy because it can usually bring in a lot of new players in fighting games. Street Fighter 6 will be released in 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S and PC.
