Street Fighter 6’s first DLC character Rashid finally got his first gameplay reveal, and the character looks better than ever in his new iteration. Capcom seems to have improved a fair bit on some of his core movesets from previous entries, and there has been a lot of anticipation amongst Rashid's mains as to how the character will be playing out once he officially drops later this month.

Along with the gameplay reveal, Capcom also announced the official release date for Rashid and the Premium content for the Rashid Arrives pass.


When is Rashid arriving in Street Fighter 6?

Capcom has confirmed that Rashid will be arriving on July 24, 2023, and he will be the first DLC character for the Year 1 Pass of the game. However, players do not need to invest in the Pass to acquire him, as he will also be purchasable.


How will Rashid play out in Street Fighter 6?

If Rashid’s gameplay reveal is something to go by, then he is very likely to have a lot of tools in his arsenal, which will counter most of the things that other characters can throw at him.

He is a wind-based fighter like Lily, and his running dash from Street Fighter 5 will also reappear in his new iteration. However, the dash now has a cancel option, and he can side-switch the slide, allowing him to go through most projectiles.

Some of his other iconic moves, like Spinning Mixer, Whirlwind Shot, and Eagle Spike will, will also be borrowed from previous games, and with all the flips and bounces that he has up his sleeve, Rashid is indeed going to be a menace to deal with.

His Level 1, 2, and 3 supers also look fantastic, and it will be interesting to see how well they go with his combo strings.


Who is the next DLC character in Street Fighter 6?

After Rashid, the next character to make their way into the fighter game will be A.K.I. She is a newcomer to the franchise, and not much is known about her apart from some character designs.
