As for what it will contain, Capcom has shared that the showcase will have “over 30 minutes of big news and announcements” related to Street Fighter 6.

“We’re talking new ways to fight, crazy new game modes and some big announcements,” added Lil Wayne.

Lil Wayne, who will feature on Killer Mike’s upcoming solo album, isn’t the first star to get involved with Capcom’s next fighting game. In January, professional wrestler Zelina Vega – real name Thea Trinidad – revealed that she will be in Street Fighter 6 as a commentator.

Vega’s appearance was confirmed during this year’s Royal Rumble, where she entered the arena dressed as Street Fighter character Juri Han.
