The next Capcom Pro Tour and Capcom Cup X will be the first official Capcom tournament to feature Street Fighter 6 as its main game.
Street Fighter 6 will be released on June 2 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and Steam.
One of its more notable new features is World Tour mode, which will let players create their own character, explore a series of open-world areas and learn moves from existing Street Fighter characters.
The Deluxe Edition will include the Year 1 Character Pass, which includes four additional characters, four additional characters’ colours and 4200 Drive Tickets.
The Ultimate Edition will include a Year 1 Ultimate Pass, which adds a further eight characters’ colours and an extra 3500 Drive Tickets.
Late last year Capcom confirmed the full lineup of Street Fighter 6 characters, which includes all eight original ‘World Warriors’ from Street Fighter II.
