As seen in Capcom Fighter's video, the next Capcom Cup VIII will be held in February 2022. Most fighting game developers often have big new reveals during major tournaments. This event could bring the Street Fighter 6 news we've been waiting for.
Luke's gameplay showcase featured some new interactions for Street Fighter 5. As seen in the trailer, Luke has an offensive answer to throws that's version 2 of his V-Skill, Silencer. Here, Capcom confirmed that Luke's V-Skill was designed as an offensive punish rather a defence option against throws.
