The theme, titled “Not A Little Girl,” “reflects her new philosophical approach to life” and is new for the iconic character and is a bit more upbeat and dancey than her past themes.

The theme reveal video doesn’t give us a glimpse at any new gameplay, but the track does give us a taste of the vibe we will be seeing and hearing in the new game. The Street Fighter Twitter account has been generous to fans of the series, though, with glimpses at features like character-specific taunts and in-game emotes.
The first reveal of the game at Sony’s June State of Play gave us a glimpse of the latest entry in the legendary fighting franchise. Capcom also revealed that Street Fighter 6 “pushes the boundaries of what a fighting game is and allows players to leave their own legacy with their player avatar.”
Street Fighter 6 is being billed as the next step in the evolution of the franchise and It will include three distinct game modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour and Battle Hub.
There will also be a new mechanic to master and use called the Drive System. Capcom describes it as “a new gauge used to perform five distinct techniques to enhance a player’s offensive or defensive capabilities.”
At the time, Street Fighter 6 is slated for a 2023 release on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC.
