Gamers anticipate an early release after Street Fighter 6 is classified on the South Korean rating site. There is a strong likelihood that the game’s release date, which was previously set for 2023, will be revealed during The Game Awards, which will take place next month.
Although the publication of this rating doesn’t necessarily imply any specific announcements are about to be made, it usually indicates that a release date isn’t too far off. Gamers widely anticipate the game’s launch worldwide after Street Fighter 6’s beta test excited almost everyone who played it.
Street Fighter 6 got a yellow label
The game has a Yellow Label from South Korea, indicating that it is intended for those at least 15 years old. When a more formal announcement is made, it will undoubtedly have a “Teen” rating in North America.
What led to Street Fighter 6’s rating of 15 and up is that its character, Jamie, drinks, and his boxing style resembles that of someone intoxicated. This is probably also because the female warriors occasionally dress provocatively or because the battle in the game is harsh.

Only three months had passed since the rating for Horizon Forbidden West was made public. God of War Ragnarok received a rating in South Korea in February 2022 and was scheduled for release in November of that same year. Horizon Forbidden West has been linked to a similar situation.
Characters have got great new moves
Street Fighter 6 makes classic fighters feel new without sacrificing their uniqueness or hiding the most powerful and enjoyable options behind other mechanics.
Ryu is still the classic shoto who can control space with fireballs, proper positioning, and anti-air attacks, but he can now power up his Hadoken and the new move Hashogeki with a Denjin install and trigger it without spending resources.
One of his Super Arts also enables impressive and powerful wall bounce combos, giving the character a whole new dimension.
On the other hand, Ken now has a few new kicks that set him apart from Ryu. His SFV V-Skill 1 is a regular technique that can narrow the distance, create exciting combinations, and add flames to some of his attacks, including his Shoryuken.
The game is clearly on point regarding character and fight design because Guile, Chun-Li, and Juri all have some of their formerly V system-specific abilities added to their movesets, making them fun to play.
