It's been announced that a new character for Street Fighter 6 is slated to be revealed tomorrow during the Summer Game Fest. Streaming will begin at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET.

As of right now, the only characters that have been officially revealed for Street Fighter 6 are Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke and Jamie. However, Capcom snuck in a sneaky reveal of Kimberly for those that were paying attention to the last trailer.

Not much is currently known about Kimberly other than that she is young black female that is seemingly dressed like a ninja. It is speculated that she may be connected to Bushinryu, the ninjutsu style practiced by Guy and Zeku.

Of course, tomorrow's reveal doesn't necessarily have unveil a newcomer to the Street Fighter series. We could instead get a Street Fighter veteran shown during tomorrow stream.

For now, we only have a rep from the first Street Fighter with Ryu and Street Fighter 2 with Chun-Li. Luke technically serves as a representative of Street Fighter 5 since he was the last DLC fighter released for that game, but Capcom appears to be pushing Luke as the main protagonist of Street Fighter 6.

As for Jamie, he's a newcomer that's making his debut appearance in Street Fighter 6, but he has some sort of connection to Yun and Yang. Jamie will likely have an important role to play in Capcom's upcoming fighter as it's been confirmed that Jamie is Luke's rival.

There are still plenty of reps that could make their way into Street Fighter 6 from SF2, Alpha, SF3, SF4 and SF5. Based on what we've seen from Ryu and Chun-Li so far, each returning veteran has the potential to bring something new and fresh to the table.

While it might seem early to have another character reveal for Street Fighter 6 considering the recent trailer, it's important to note that Street Fighter 6 is slated to be released in 2023. Capcom frequently releases their mainline Street Fighter titles in the month of February, so we could potentially be only eight or nine months out from release.
