What is Street Fighter 6's Real-Time Commentary?
PlayStation released a blog on June 2 that covered some of the latest Street Fighter 6 news, including the addition of a new commentary feature. In the blog, the developers discuss that they are working with well-known FGC commentators to incorporate their voices directly into the game.
During a match, fighters may hear the commentators explain what is happening on the screen like in a real tournament. The new feature will make matches more intense and exciting and provide easy-to-understand explanations about the gameplay.
Jeremy Vicious Lopez and Aru were the first commentators announced for the feature.
Street Fighter 6 is still unknown, but it is expected to be released in 2023. More information will be revealed throughout Evo this weekend.
