Capcom has shown us Street Fighter fan favorite Ken for the first time along with his moveset in Street Fighter 6, though he looks a little more shabby than usual. Like Ryu, Ken looks a bit older than he did in Street Fighter 5, but that certainly won’t stop him from taking down anyone he deems worthy of a challenge.
Capcom announced Ken’s inclusion in Street Fighter 6 during this year’s Tokyo Games Show, and while it’s pretty exciting to see him in Street Fighter 6, his new look seems to confirm a popular fan theory. Since Street Fighter 2, Ken has been happily married to Eliza – Giele’s daughter – and never left his side in his endless quest to fight Ryu. It looks like she’s finally had enough, as Ken’s new haggard look suggests that the Ken divorce memes that flooded social media a few months ago are true.
According to the leaks, in Street Fighter 6, Ken was very unlucky: he got divorced and his child Mel was taken away – the dog tags he wears actually belong to Mel, which makes his new design all the more tragic. Street Fighter 6 will also feature a new character, Luke, who will try to restore the fighter to its former glory, while everyone else will call him “washed” in quotation marks.
With this announcement, we’re starting to get a glimpse of what the Street Fighter 6 roster will look like when the game hits the market. Other newly announced characters include new heroes Luke and Kimberly, while old favorites such as Juri, Gile, Ryu, and Chun-Li are also confirmed for inclusion in the game. A release date for the game has yet to be announced, but it is expected to release in 2023 for PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X.
