After it was announced that Rashid’s Fighting Pass will be released later, CAPCOM officially revealed the schedule for the addition of the new character Rashid to the Street Fighter 6 roster. Rashid the Turbulent Wind will be joining on July 24, 2023, which is just after the Fighting Pass will end. Players will be able to experience his new content across all three game modes, including the following:

  • World Tour: Meet Rashid in the all-new Street Fighter 6 story mode to learn and apply his moves to your custom avatar’s move set, discover more about his background, and increase your bond with this newest Master
  • Fighting Ground: Rashid hops onto the scene as the 19th playable character, with new and unique moves for players to master
  • Battle Hub: Players can grab Rashid-related gear, emotes, and more through this month’s “Rashid Arrives!” Fighting Pass

Also, check out Rashid’s reveal trailer for his gameplay with old and brand-new moves.

Rashid has new and classic moves characterized by parkour and lightning quick movements, including:

  • Arabian Cyclone: A new special move that performs a spinning kick and conjures up a whirlwind; can be used as a standalone blow, or transitioned into Rolling Assault or Wing Stroke
  • Arabian Skyhigh: A new double jump move that keeps opponents guessing on where Rashid will land from the air
  • Super Rashid Kick: Level 1 Super Art that unloads a devastating kick while soaring forward and up through the air
  • Ysaar: Previously Rashid’s V-Trigger move in Street Fighter V, this Level 2 Super Art summons a slow-moving whirlwind projectile that can be used to pressure opponents
  • Altair: Rashid’s Level 3 Super Art calls forth a tempest that lifts opponents before he rains down on them with a monsoon of powerful blows

How to Unlock Rashid?

Players can claim Rashid with the Deluxe Edition, Ultimate Edition, or Year 1 Character Pass. They can also try out Rashid for free for one hour with the one Rental Fighter ticket that can be obtained via in-game Fighting Pass.

Street Fighter 6 is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
