Despite the fact that the full release list for Street Fighter 6 has been known for months, there is still quite a bit about the newest characters that has remained a mystery.

The Grand Finals event for Street Fighter League Pro-JP took place earlier today, and Capcom held a special presentation revealing the first full match footage for Manon, Marisa, JP, and Dee Jay, as well as Blanka and Dhalsim.

Although the finals are not yet available on YouTube, AlphaDog managed to capture the SF6 shows and shared them online.

We don’t know who’s at the controls for these matches, but they’re much better at showing off the new characters’ tools and combos compared to the previous showcase, and reveal a lot more about how they work.

For matches, there’s Dee Jay vs. Dhalsim, Manon vs. Marisa and JP vs. Blanka, so we get to see a nice cast of the newest characters revealed for SF6, with the exception of E. Honda.

Starting with Manon vs. Marisa, the newcomers show how effective their long limbs are, especially the dancer kicks, and both look pretty scary with their Drive Rush approaches.

As mentioned earlier, Manon has a unique mechanic that gains her levels for landing throws, which seems to grab her command and possibly allow her to combo into them at higher levels.

Marisa’s big swings give her a ton of corner carry, and she looks like she can keep pushing buttons after her dive attack. Additionally, we get to see the non-Critical Art version of her level 3 Super Art.

JP fights with one hand typically held behind his back similar to Oro, but he makes up for it with the extended range provided by his cane and the multitude of long-range specials that seem to come out pretty quickly.

JP appears to be saving his left arm to use his Psycho Power abilities and we get a brief shot of his Level 2 Super summoning more spirits to attack the enemy.

Blanka’s EX roll appears to be completely projectile invincible and can combo into EX ball on Punish Counter hits for extra damage.

His Level 2 Super is similar to Street Fighter 5’s V-Trigger 2, which allows him to perform multiple aerial runs in succession, and Blanka-chan’s trap start-up seems long to the point where it will be difficult to use. outside of landing a knockdown.

Dee Jay has everything from his old kits except power-up to make him a much slicker character with more combo opportunities than ever before.

The pop star can now simulate his fireballs, and footage shows the Overdrive version to be very fast, as he dashes in front of Dhalsim and knocks him out of his new position.

Dhalsim’s mobility via teleports and floating can be even better than SF5, but his long limbs can still be very punishing.

We’ll have a more in-depth breakdown of what we’re seeing in these new matches, so stay tuned for more Street Fighter 6 coverage on EventHubs.
