The Street Fighter 6 roster is gradually revealing, with Kimberly and Juri joining as the newest entries. These new characters were first shown on a leaked post on Capcom’s German Twitter account, with the company officially confirming soon after.

Information for Street Fighter 6 is trickling out — an entry sure to be a hit among the fighting games community. And to help promote the game, Capcom even began hands-on previews at Evo 2022, the world’s biggest fighting game tournament.

But after a slight mess up with their social media team, where Capcom Germany accidentally leaked the characters, Capcom officially confirmed two more characters: Kimberly and Juri.

Capcom wasn’t all that subtle leading up to the reveal, having outright displayed the character on a huge bulletin in the Street Fighter 6 trailer.

Kimberly’s moves have been teased in the video above, bearing a striking resemblance to Guy’s fighting style. She even has his signature aerial spin kick — but also has her own unique hip-hop charisma.

As for Juri, she’s been included in the reveal. Once again, Juri doesn’t come as much of a surprise to the community for Street Fighter 6. She’s been popular since her debut, but has come a long way since her quest for revenge in Street Fighter 5.
