The long-awaited release of the sixth edition of the ever-popular Street Fighter franchise has now achieved the Famitsu “40” title, becoming the second game in a month to gain this highly-coveted ranking. Street Fighter 6 has been in the works for over two years, and its launch is receiving praise from the gaming industry.
The Famitsu title is given to video games that make a big impact on the industry, as judged by Famitsu magazine’s review panel. Street Fighter 6 is no exception, earning a 40 out of 40 from the panel. This makes the game only the second title this month to achieve such a feat – the first was Monster Hunter Rise.
The new Street Fighter has been acclaimed for its smooth fighting system, stunning graphics, and innovative mechanics. It also features a new character list, including several returning favorites as well as some new additions. This combination has made it a hit with fans and critics alike.
It is no surprise, then, that Street Fighter 6 has received such a high review score. Indeed, the game has already set records for being the first title in the series to achieve such a ranking. Fans of the series can only hope that the game continues to be as successful as its predecessors.
The Famitsu title is only the latest in a string of honors that Street Fighter 6 has achieved. The game has also been awarded the Editor’s Choice Award from IGN, Game of the Year from GameSpot, and Most Innovative Game from The Verge.
The success of Street Fighter 6 is a testament to its quality and will likely lead to further success for the company. With new titles in the works, the next few years look bright for the franchise.
