Street Fighter 6 is one of the surprises that attracted the most attention in the framework of the State of Play this week, and it is not for less, since the next installment of the long-running Capcom franchise was seen in all its splendor in a cool new development. This is how we know that Chun-Li will be one of the characters that will be back and will participate in the fights.
Something that seems quite striking to us is that much has been said about the return of the popular fighter of Chinese origin. Although her design caused the discomfort of some fans, the vast majority of the community is happy. Now, it seems that her voice will also be the subject of discussion, especially for those people who enjoy the English version of the character.
What happens is that Jennie Kwan, who played Suki in the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender in the original version, will do the same with Chun-Li in Street Fighter 6. This means that Laura Bailey, who lent her voice the character in multiple installments of the franchise and other crossovers, will not participate in the sixth installment.
It is worth noting that Jennie Kwan is a Filipino-American actress and singer who was born in Los Angeles, California. So it seems that some fans are happy that a person with Asian roots plays the Chinese fighter in the Capcom video game. Currently, it is a mystery why Laura Bailey, who also played Abby in The Last of Us: Part II, will not be part of the cast of Street Fighter 6.
So far, the fighting video game confirmed the presence of Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke, and Jamie. The official website has already revealed who are the voice actors who will play these characters. Thus, it is noteworthy that Kyle Hebert will play Ryu again, a character he has already voiced in Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter V, Street Fighter X Tekken and other projects such as Wreck-it Ralph, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and TEPPEN.
On the other hand, Aleks Le, a voice actor who participated in the English dubbing of projects such as Demon Slayer and Tokyo Revengers, will play Luke. Finally, Stephen Fu, who has a resume in video games like Lost Judgment and live-action series like Squid Game, will lend his voice to Jamie.
