Street Fighter Fans Are Roasting 6’s "Awful" Box Art
Street Fighter 6's 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 the overall majority of 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 depicts Luke presumably celebrating a recent victory with his fist in the air and a face only a mother could love.
Fans across social media have been quick to roast Luke's pose that will be front and center on every boxed copy of Street Fighter 6, with some questioning why the fighter is even the main selling point of the game in the first place considering characters like Ryu and Ken have much more gravitas. It's made worse by Luke's facial expression, which YouTuber Matt McMuscles has described as looking like Luke is in the middle of "shitting himself."
Luke probably would've gotten away with one was that the nastiest thing someone had to say about him, but plenty of other Twitter users have taken umbrage with his pose. Luke is also being unfavorably compared to characters such as Popeye and that one creepy statue of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Some fans have even made their own game covers mocking 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 of the absolute abominations that were shown off during the Street Fighter 6 closed beta earlier this year, as fans really tested the limits of the game's character creator.
