Our suspicions are confirmed: Street Fighter 6 follows the path of Capcom’s recent PC releases, for better or worse.
This Friday, June 2, one of the great games of the year arrives. We expected that Street Fighter 6 was going to be very good, but not that it would be a clear candidate for GOTY 2023, being a fighting game. Capcom shows that it is at its best.
After the bump that Street Fighter V caused (especially at its launch), the sixth installment recovers the spirit of the saga, and offers one of the best experiences we’ve seen in the genre.
We make it clear to you in our analysis, but it is that Street Fighter 6 it also garners great criticism in the international press. Can you win the award for best fighting game of 2023?
Unless Mortal Kombat 1 avoids it, the Capcom title has many ballots to achieve it. its release It is scheduled for this Friday on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S and PC.
But not everything was going to be positive. We suspected that the PC version would bring the controversial Denuvo software… and Capcom has confirmed it a few hours agojust two days after its arrival in stores.
Denuvo, the great rival in Street Fighter 6
We know that the intentions of Denuvo, the famous anti-piracy software, They are good. This technology is intended to help players not use cheats or hacks in games, which is positive on paper.
The problem is that Denuvo often causes headaches in PC games. Many of them work worse with this software active, so developers often disable it.
In fact, Capcom has already done this in the past. Games like Resident Evil Village, the remakes of Resident Evil 2/3, Devil May Cry 5 or Monster Hunter Rise opted for Denuvo in their launches, to then remove the software after user complaints.
Will history repeat itself with Street Fighter 6? It seems quite likely. Capcom’s fighting game will use this softwareas it has been leaked in an update of its listing on Steam.
Players fear that Denuvo will hinder game performance, especially due to online features. In the same way, it will help keep cheaters away for a while.
Capcom says Denuvo will have no impact on Street Fighter 6… but it is something that remains to be seen. As the days go by we will see how the AAA fight works on computers (and Steam Deck).
Street Fighter 6 is the triumphant return of a fighting game legend. starting friday June 2nd, you can enjoy it on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, and PC. The PC version is exclusive to Steam.
