    Can Street Fighter 6 Save the Series?

    The past few years of Street Fighter can best be described with one word: disappointment. Street Fighter 5 never fully recovered from its disastrous launch; even after so many updates, it never won back the casual audience. In its mediocrity, Street Fighter more or less faded while other fighting games, like Tekken and Guilty Gear, […]
