Street Fighter 6

Capcom has announced the first Street Fighter 6 downloadable content character, Rashid, is launching this month.

Rashid is launching for Street Fighter 6 on July 24th for owners of the Deluxe Edition, Ultimate Edition, or the Year 1 Character Pass. You can also try Rashid out for one hour entirely free with one Rental Fighter ticket, or unlock him in-game with the Fighting Pass.

Here’s a rundown on the new character, plus a new trailer:

Rashid of the Turbulent Wind drops in from high above and makes his whirlwind debut. Players will be able to experience high-flying Rashid content across all three game modes, including:

  • World Tour: Meet Rashid in the all-new Street Fighter 6 story mode to learn and apply his moves to your custom avatar’s move set, discover more about his background, and increase your bond with this newest Master
  • Fighting Ground: Rashid hops onto the scene as the 19th playable character, with new and unique moves for players to master
  • Battle Hub: Players can grab Rashid-related gear, emotes, and more through this month’s “Rashid Arrives!” Fighting Pass

Rashid storms onto the scene with new and classic moves characterized by parkour and lightning quick movements, including:

  • Arabian Cyclone: A new special move that performs a spinning kick and conjures up a whirlwind; can be used as a standalone blow, or transitioned into Rolling Assault or Wing Stroke
  • Arabian Skyhigh: A new double jump move that keeps opponents guessing on where Rashid will land from the air
  • Super Rashid Kick: Level 1 Super Art that unloads a devastating kick while soaring forward and up through the air
  • Ysaar: Previously Rashid’s V-Trigger move in Street Fighter™ V, this Level 2 Super Art summons a slow-moving whirlwind projectile that can be used to pressure opponents
  • Altair: Rashid’s Level 3 Super Art calls forth a tempest that lifts opponents before he rains down on them with a monsoon of powerful blows
