Street Fighter 6 will have a closed beta in October

With cross-play between PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Steam

Capcom just announced the dates for Street Fighter 6's upcoming closed beta test.

The dates were shown as part of Capcom's Tokyo Game Show livestream event earlier today, which also included a new look at parts of the game and some returning fighters.

Series veterans Ken, Blanka, Dhalsim and E. Honda were all confirmed as returning characters to the roster. Footage of the Battle Hub showed a game centre full of arcade cabinets for players to compete against one another.

We also got to see some of the World Tour, the single-player story mode, character customisation and Scrap Heap mode. An accompanying post detailing everything shown off is available on the official PlayStation blog.
