What is Real-Time Commentary in Street Fighter 6?
On June 2, PlayStation released a blog that showed off some Street Fighter 6 news, including the new commentary feature. In the blog, developers explained that they are working with well-known FGC commentators to “incorporate their voices directly in the game.”
During a match, fighters can hear the commentators narrate what is happening on screen “just like a real tournament.” The new feature will make matches more intense and hype and provide “easy-to-understand explanations” about the gameplay.
The first commentators announced for the feature were Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Aru.
There is still no official date for Street Fighter 6, but it’s now confirmed to be coming in 2023. Expect more information to be revealed throughout Evo this weekend.
