Capcom has announced two new additions to the Street Fighter 6 roster. Revealed on-stage at EVO 2022, and later posted to Twitter, the trailer shows off Kimberly and Juri.
Juri first appeared in Super Street Fighter IV, and is described as a sadistic thrill-seeker. The spunky ninja Kimberly is brand new to Street Figher VI. You can check out both characters in the new trailer below.

Kimberly’s moveset seems to focus on fast-paced jabs and aerial kicks, with a number of devastating bicycle kicks shown in the trailer. Juri rides into battle on a motorcycle, before unleashing a flurry of tornado kicks on her opponents.
After a teaser trailer earlier this year, Street Fighter 6 was formally revealed at the June 2022 State of Play. The initial trailer confirmed a number of characters, including Ryu, Luke, and Chun-Li. We also know that Jamie and Guile are playable in the game.
