Fans had been quite intrigued to see what the rest of the newcomers for Street Fighter 6 had to offer, and now we can get a closer look at the most elegant among them.

Capcom just released a short gameplay showcase for Manon in Street Fighter 6 to give a better idea of how her strike and throw game will come together for a beautiful dance.

The new gameplay for Manon begins by showing off what looks to be a jab confirmed into a grab that pulls Marisa back close to her again, and she'll apparently have multiple versions of this strike-throw back and forth.

Her second use of this helpful move comes from what looks like a crouching medium punch, and this time Manon performs the flipping judo throw from the latest trailer once she pulls the gladiator back into the blender.

It only gets even cooler and scarier when she is then shown to be able to combo into a crouching kick and keep the string going once the dance star guides her partner back into position.

She is said to have a medal level, likely similar to G's presidential level from Street Fighter 5, which increases with each special grab landed and gives her moves new properties.

And then to cap it all off, we get to see what is probably Manon's level 1 Super Art that kicks around her body before doing a nice ballerina flying kick through the skies of Paris.

It's quite interesting being able to see in this footage how the developers have really made her attacks and throws look like they're part of a dance routine and not quite in the way it's normally handled in fighting games.

You can check out the new clip of Manon in action below.
