Capcom has to get Street Fighter 6 right, and not just for the sake of the series’ 35th anniversary

Two legendary Street Fighter players, Justin Wong playing Chun-Li and Daigo Umehara as Ken, were duking it out. Just as it seemed Wong was going to take the round with a souped-up move, Daigo, with one pixel of health, parried 15 hits and came back for the win. Most players would have just died, especially under such pressure.
