New Zangief vs. Marisa dev footage released for Street Fighter 6

We’ve technically seen all 18 characters for Street Fighter 6’s starting roster in action, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen everything they can do.

Capcom has just released new match footage from the devs of Zangief taking on the equally massive Marisa in SF6 to show off more of her move sets.

The new gameplay starts with him showing us Zangief’s pre-fight intro for the first time as he walks to the ring, and then we’re treated to a heavy kick (it looks like Abel’s wheel kick from Street Fighter 4) from the wrestler and a further spoiled look at Marisa’s Armor Break Strike.

Zangief’s leaping heavy kick is shown to cause a full impact on the wall in return from the center of the screen, and he also has his charged heavy punch from Street Fighter 5.

They also included several shots of Zangief’s Drive Rush in full action with various options, as well as his Drive Parry animation, which of course blows back attacks with his chest.

His SPD damage looks pretty expected, but the Overdrive version of his Signature Grab seems to deal just as much if not more damage than some Supers.

Another move is also shown by Marisa’s armor stance, which appears to be a low punch kick on top of the arm punch and grab.

We still can’t see Zangief’s Critical Art version of his Level 3 Super, but they give us a better look at Marisa’s full animation, where her fist leaves a beautiful heart on Gief’s face.

You can watch the full match between SF6’s two biggest fighters below, and that probably means we have more footage of Lily and Cammy to look forward to over the next few days/weeks.

Street Fighter 6 is scheduled for release on June 2, 2023. It will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, PC and Arcade (Japan only).

And if you want more SF6 action now, we recently interviewed Capcom about the biggest improvements they’ve made over Street Fighter 5 and how they’re trying to create a new gold standard for fighting games.
