Watch the Street Fighter 6 Showcase Here

It’s going to be a big day for Street Fighter fans. At 3 PM PT/7 PM ET/10PM GMT the Street Fighter 6 Showcase presented by none other than Lil Wayne will go into detail on each of SF6’s three slices: The World Tour single-player content, the Battle Hub online service, and Fighting Ground core game modes.

Expected to run over 30 minutes, Capcom is hinting at “some big news at the end of the show.” A notable leak from a Japanese partnered content creator has suggested that you should get ready to hit the streets after the show. Pre-show begins 30 minutes before the showcase!

Watch the stream on the Capcom Fighters Twitch channel or right here on YouTube:

DNF Duel is now available on Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo’s catalogue of portable anime fighting games gets a new addition. DNF Duel is Arc System Works’ latest Switch port and I must be forthright with you, reader — it doesn’t bring over the silky smooth rollback netcode that the original release was praised for in our review.

Still if you’re looking for a portable training setup or you just enjoy fighting games on your Switch, DNF Duel can be had for $49.99 as a digital download on the Nintendo eShop or get a physical copy via Amazon today.
