Professional wrestler Thea Trinidad will join Street Fighter 6 as part of the game’s Real-Time Commentary Feature, Capcom announced.
The Real-Time Commentary Feature incorporates the voices of popular fighting game community commentators directly into the game to narrate what is happening on-screen just like a real tournament.
“I’ve been an avid gamer since I was a child and a huge fan of Street Fighter,” said Thea Trinidad in a press release. “I can still remember epic matches with my brother, and I would always beat him with my favorite character Vega. It’s surreal to now be a part of this amazing franchise and I am honored and thankful for this once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Here is an overview of the Real-Time Commentary Feature and Thea Trinidad, via Capcom:
Thea Trinidad, also known as WWE Superstar Zelina Vega, has climbed to the top rope and somersaulted directly into Street Fighter 6 as the newest addition to the in-game commentator roster. Thea, a longtime Street Fighter fan, brings her strength, style, and electrifying personality to the growing roster of illustrious color commentators in Street Fighter 6. She is a current WWE Superstar, self-proclaimed gamer, and no stranger to the Street Fighter franchise, even modeling her ring gear as Juri at this weekend’s WWE Royal Rumble in San Antonio, Texas.
The Street Fighter 6 Real-Time Commentary feature incorporates the voices of popular Fighting Game Community (FGC) commentators and personalities to narrate matches as they happen with easy-to-understand gameplay explanations. Recently announced play-by-play commentators include Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez, Ryutaro “Aru” Noda, Kosuke Hiraiwa, and Steve “TastySteve” Scott, with a tag team of color commentators including Thea Trinidad, H.E. Demon Kakka, and James “jchensor” Chen. This feature will support subtitles in 13 languages for increased accessibility and player excitement.
Street Fighter 6 is due out for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam on June 2.
