Soon after, leaked artwork appeared online that seemingly revealed all 22 characters coming to the game with the artwork being confirmed with later character reveals. New Street Fighter 6 character Kimberly has gotten more attention than anyone else thus far.

Every Street Fighter game has new faces and Street Fighter 6 seems like it will be no different. In leaked artwork, a few new characters were discovered, including Kimberly. Kimberly appears to be an African-American woman with a cyberpunk-ninja chic.

While her red crop top and colorful sneakers are eye-catching, her hair is definitely a standout feature. She has six braids all with neon blue tips.
