Capcom's ambitious project will get another stress test this weekend with the help of some of the game's biggest pros
Street Fighter 6 currently has a release date of June 2nd, 2023, which is highly anticipated. But, if you would cast your mind back, you might recall that Street Fighter V's Arcade edition wasn't released until 2018, two years after the game's initial release.
It would seem that Street Fighter 6's Arcade version will not suffer a similar fate as it has been announced that it would be playable this weekend at the Japan Amusement Expo 2023.
Street Fighter 6: Type Arcade is one of the big features of this year's JAEPO, and the exhibition will feature a couple of matches between two of Street Fighter's biggest pros: BC|Kazunoko and CO|Dogura.
Street Fighter 6: Type Arcade was announced back in December, and it was also revealed that Taito, who have been long-time collaborators with Capcom on Arcade cabinets, would be responsible for Street Fighter 6.
According to information sourced from Dengekionline, the exhibition match between Dogura and Kazunoko will be played on some prototype cabinets as a test. However, it is uncertain if this event will be streamed or not.
The Arcade version of Street Fighter 6 might never see the outside of Japan, but it would certainly be interesting as it is possible that we could see a new character or more footage of some of the less advertised characters like Deejay, Marisa, and Dhalsim.
Also of note, the cabinets will feature Taito's NESiCAxLive service, which enables players to have access to all their purchased content by using their Capcom ID. Japan Amusement Expo 2023 will take place between the 10th and 11th of February 2023 at the Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall.
