In World Tour, players will be able to customize their own avatars, and as the story mode progresses, it will be possible for your avatar to battle NPCs on the street. The player will also be able to face Ryu and Chun-Li, who teach special moves from their own repertoire.
The Battle Hub allows players to drag their avatars into a sort of lobby to find matches with other players around the world, including online tournaments. The big news is that once opponents face each other in the Battle Hub, they can start a match with the entire Battle Hub as a spectator.
See who’s back to battle in the streets!
The first of these is Street Fighter series legend Ken, who brings a classic moveset with new additions. Monk Dhalsim and sumo wrestler E.Honda are also confirmed for the Capcom game, and to make things even more electric, Blanka has also been confirmed to return.

The test includes Ranked Matches, Random Matches, Battle Hub Matches, Open Tournament, Extreme Battle, Game Center and Practice. Additionally, there will be eight playable characters during testing: Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke, Jamie, Gil, Kimberly, Juri, and Kenny.
