Street Fighter Fans Are Roasting 6 “Gruesome” Box Art

Luke has gotten dirty.

The Street Fighter 6 release date was leaked ahead of The Game Awards earlier this week, but we finally got the official announcement along with a first look at the game’s box art during the show. While most fans are pretty impressed with the game itself after the closed beta earlier this year, the same can’t be said for the box art, which shows Luke presumably celebrating a recent victory with the fist in the air and a face. only a mother can love.

Fans on social media were quick to roast Luke’s pose that will be front and center in every boxed copy of Street Fighter 6, with some questioning why the fighter is even the game’s main selling point in the first place. considering characters like Ryu and Ken it has much more seriousness. It worsens Luke’s facial expression, which YouTuber Matt McMuscles has described as if Luke is in the middle of “shitting himself”.

Luke probably would have gotten away with it if the nastiest thing anyone had to say about him, but many other Twitter users took offense at his pose. Luke is also being compared unfavorably to the likes of Popeye and that creepy statue of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Some fans have even made his own game covers mock Luke and some have been sharing other pieces of official art which arguably look better than the official box art.

At least Luke’s pose looks a little better than all the absolute abominations shown off during the Street Fighter 6 closed beta earlier this year, as fans really pushed the limits of the game’s character creator.
