Bug Fixes

  • Some bugs have been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause the game to freeze if you tried to sign out of your profile while in the Battle Hub.

New Feature

  • Added an option to reduce input delay in the Graphics menu. Turning this option on will shorten the gap between your inputs and the action happening on-screen. This is especially useful if you are using a monitor capable of displaying at 120Hz on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
  • For the Steam version the same effect can be achieved by turning this option on, setting Vsync to off, and setting the refresh rate to 120 Hz or higher.
  • Please note that depending on the monitor, you may experience some tearing.

Online Battle

  • Behavior Adjustments
    • Adjusted how input delay works when the connection status causes frequent changes to the delay (represented by the D value at the top of screen), so that it will no longer decrease in a round where there has been an increase.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed an issue where spectating one battle cabinet while queued up at another cabinet caused a communication error and a black screen when the match you’re spectating is about to end.
    • Fixed an issue in Extreme Battle where if a projectile was on the screen, and Juri attacked an explosive with Fuhajin, she would be stuck in the Fuhajin animation until the projectile disappeared.

Training Mode

  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed an issue where the Frame Meter would not work correctly if you chose to restore default settings.

Battle Adjustments

  • Fixed some bugs, as well as tweaked some aspects of the game related to controls and overall strategy.
  • There are no individual character adjustments since the last Closed Beta Test.
  • Behavior Adjustments
    • Adjusted Modern Controls so that a crouching heavy kick will be performed when pressing down-forward + Heavy Attack.
    • (Please note that this is not listed in the in-game command list, and if you try to perform the attack currently listed in the command list, it may differ from the attack that comes out.)
    • 1. Jamie – Phantom Sway
      • Appears in the command list as Down+Heavy, Heavy, Heavy, but in battle is performed with Down-forward+Heavy, Heavy, Heavy
    • 2. Guile – Phantom Dagger
      • Appears in the command list as Down+Heavy, Heavy, Heavy, but in battle is performed with Down-forward+Heavy, Heavy, Heavy
    • 3. Chun-Li – Water Lotus Fist
      • This move is in the command list, but if you perform Down-forward+Heavy while using Modern control type, you will get Chun-Li’s crouching heavy kick instead, and not Water Lotus Fist.
        • When performing a Super Art command such as Quarter-Circle Forward x 2 or Quarter-Circle Back x 2, the input delay going from down to forward or back is now 12 frames instead of 10 frames.
      • Crouching medium kicks that can be canceled into special attacks now have a hitstop of 9 frames instead of 10 frames.
    • Bug Fixes
      • Fixed an issue where if you performed a Half-Circle Forward command to perform a Quarter-Circle Forward special move, you would instead get an attack attached to the “Shoryuken” command input.
    • Balance Adjustments
      • Perfect Parrying a projectile now has the same damage scaling when attacking an opponent during their recovery as Perfect Parrying a strike.
      • If you continue your parry stance after Perfect Parrying a projectile, if you release the parry within a certain period of time, no recovery time for releasing the parry will occur.
        Level 1 Super Arts for all characters no longer have projectile invincibility.
    • Ryu Adjustments
      • Balance Adjustments
        • To go along with the invincibility change made to all Level 1 Super Arts, Ryu’s Hashogeki and Shin Hashogeki are now considered strikes and not projectiles.
  • Other minor battle-related bugs have been fixed.

Street Fighter 6 will launch for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam in 2023.
