Street Fighter 6’s lineup starts its growth with a whirlwind
Capcom has actually revealed that Rashid will be concerning Street Fighter 6 on July 24.
The first downloadable character, Rashid, is available with the purchase of the Year 1 Character Pass. You don’t need anything else right now if you’ve purchased either the Deluxe or Ultimate Edition.
In addition, you will receive a Rental Fighter ticket and a special “Rashid Arrives!” battling pass, allowing you to check out Rashid for an hour.
In addition to the aforementioned items, Rashid’s Fighting Pass will also grant access to a new emote, music, photo border, in-game mobile background, sticker labels, and even title art for your character. Despite widespread distaste for Street Fighter V’s excessive reliance on microtransactions, players will be relieved to see that the game still offers some free bonuses.
The speed of the wind is picking up.
From July 4 to 23, you can purchase the “Rashid Arrives!” Combating Pass for 250 Fighter Coins in preparation for the arrival of the Turbulent Wind.
The Turbulent Wind
He is a laid-back tech enthusiast who relies on the wind to propel himself and plan out devastating attacks. After Rashid’s introduction to the series in the critically panned Street Fighter V, many of his strategies have evolved. According to hints posted on the official Playstation blog, the new Rashid will continue to be a free fighter, but will feature a number of significant changes, most of which will centre on movement.
Now he will also implement a novel relocation strategy known as the Arabian Cyclone. Rashid will do a spinning kick that creates a small tornado. The kick can change into what were V-Skills in SFV, and Rashid can use his whirlwinds to improve his neutral game and his combos.
In addition, he’ll have the double-jump move Arabian Skyhigh, which will undoubtedly throw off his opponents’ attempts to anticipate where he’ll land. Rashid appears to be one of the more nimble characters in the game, with a Side Flip that can be combined with a Front Flip to launch him back into the air. Rashid has completely shed his SFV heritage now that his Level 2 Super, Ysaar, is a V-Trigger I from the previous game.
On an undisclosed date, the game will add support for new playable characters like AKI, Ed, and Akuma.
