▍Street Fighter 6 World Tour
In Street Fighter 6, your travels will take you all around the world to glimpses of specific locations such as a beach in Jamaica, an arena in Italy, and a festival in France. There may even be a Master in each of these locations who can’t wait to meet you.
Learn Special Moves from these Masters to incorporate into your avatar’s custom move set. You can also mix and match Special Moves from different Masters, meaning your avatar can throw out a Hadoken, a Sonic Boom, perform a Spinning Bird Kick, and a Yoga Flame, all in the same match as long as they’re using different inputs.
When you jump into a fight in World Tour, you may encounter more than one opponent, meaning fights may seem a tad lopsided. A careful selection of Special Moves can ensure you have a balanced move set in case you get cornered. Or… fight alongside your masters using Master Assist!
The World Tour mode also contains a host of minigames you can play in between matches in the form of part-time jobs where you can earn World Tour currency. Karate-chop bottles, enjoy Italian cuisine, parry basketballs, and more to further immerse yourselves. Purchase in-game clothing, food, and more with the currency you earn in these mini-games.
