Street Fighter 6 Update Adds Ed, Balance Changes, and More

Just days after the conclusion of Capcom Cup X, Capcom has dropped a new update for Street Fighter 6, adding Street Fighter 5 alum Ed as the game’s latest DLC character. The update also includes a number of balance changes, though they’re a bit narrower in scope than we expect to see later on.

Ed was originally teased back in January with a trailer that give players a peek at his fighting style and some of the content in his story scenarios. With SF6 Capcom is fully leaning into Ed’s fighting style as a boxer, which has been a point of excitement for Ed fans for sure.

In addition to Ed, Capcom has introduced buffs to characters like Jamie and Ryu, who sorely needed them. JP and Luke, on the other hand, caught a couple of nerfs, though no one should be surprised there given how powerful they are.  A smaller, but still notable change in the update is the new ability for players to matchmake with those outside of their region. Previously, players would typically matched with others in their general vicinity in order to optimize the online experience, but now players have the option of extending that range further if they like.

Head on over to the official Street Fighter 6 website for the full list of changes.
