waifu Juriiiiiiiiiiiii and newcomer Kimberly announced for SF6!

Juri’s so hot!

Street Fighter 6 Announces New Fighters and More at EVO 2022

Here’s how Kimberly gets her paint party started in Street Fighter 6

Street Fighter 6: Juri Returns Alongside Ninja Newcomer Kimberly – Game Informer

Praise be to RE Engine’s rendition of Juri in Street Fighter 6 – Destructoid

The newest of which is a new character, the ninja Kimberly. This 80’s obsessed fighter combines traditional ninja techniques with rhythmic urban twists using spray paint cans in some of her attacks. Additionally, some of her moves may appear familiar as she is a student of Guy, a classic Street Fighter character. 

As a new character, it’s tough to get a grip on Kimberly from this short video, but it’s clear that she has been designed with Guy/Zeku/Ibuki players in mind, featuring something of a blend of all of their abilities — from dash attacks and wall-runs, to bomb setups and aerial grappling. Kimberly also has a really vivid and dazzling design, while embodying the “urban art” vibe of Street Fighter 6 in general. Quite frankly, I think she represents the whole “brand” of SF6 more than any other character revealed to date. It will be interesting to see if the community adopts the “Ninja Star” as an ambassador for SF6 at large.

“Being a spunky new ninja, Kimberly incorporates an urban twist to reimagine what Bushinryu means to her,” the blog post reads. “She uses Genius at Play to stock up on a spray can, which can then be thrown to the ground as a Shuriken Bomb. During Hidden Variable, Kimberly conceals herself in colorful smoke before instantly appearing in front of an opponent for a surprise attack. Finally, she has the trademark ninja Sprint, which can be followed up with kick options or Arc Step where Kimberly launches herself off from the opponent.”

The second character confirmed in the trailer is Juri. A returning character from Street Fighter IV the sadistic Juri is returning with her signature Fuhajin fighting style. Of course, each of her super arts is making a come back and will appear with Street Fighter VI flair and style.

2023 will see Marie coming in Skullgirls.

Skullgirls Marie will join the playable roster in 2023

Skullgirls 2nd Encore DLC character Marie announced – Gematsu

10 years of waiting.

As the Skullgirl, she is very destructive. However, unlike past Skullgirls, she demonstrates a much greater will and cares for the innocent. This is seen during Squigly’s story, where she uses all of her strength to save New Meridian and its civilians from the falling debris of the Medici Tower while on her rampage against the infamous Medici mafia. Her selflessness has been acknowledged by Leviathan, who claims Marie’s actions are “Rather curious for a Skullgirl.”

Marie is usually seen to be calm and collected, often speaking with a gentle monotone voice. However, she has an intense hatred for Lorenzo and his empire, often losing her cool when they are around. When she sees Lorenzo fleeing from her assault on their base, she furiously demands that he face her and not ignore the countless lives the Medici have taken over the years before declaring that she will destroy him, thus making it her personal mission to eradicate the Medici for their evil deeds. Marie also mentioned that she only became the Skullgirl to challenge the corruption in their world and realizes there is an even greater monster that binds her to its will.

Marie is also a very determined boss.

Marie hails from an area outside of the Canopy Kingdom known as No Man’s Land, a wasteland that used to be a country but fell during the war with the Canopy Kingdom. Along with her friend Patricia (who would later become the Anti-Skullgirl weapon Peacock), Marie was orphaned during the war and forced into slavery by a group funded by the Medici Mafia.
