One of the more novel additions to Street Fighter 6 was the commentary feature, which overlaid a fight with esports-style commentary from multiple fighting game community personalities. However, as a recent video from longtime FGC YouTube account HiFight details, there’s a secret commentator option which would make Old MacDonald proud.
According to the video from HiFight–which attributes the initial discovery of the Easter egg to Twitter user @pika0722chu_–the key to the Easter egg is in the versus screen with the moveable fighter faces. If a secret code is entered here, and the commentary feature is activated, the selected commentators will be replaced with animal sounds–including a chicken, horse, sheep, elephant, lion, and more.
The secret code to activate the animal-based match analysis is as follows:
PlayStation: Down, R1, Up, L1, Square, X, Triangle, and CircleXbox: Down, RB, Up, LB, X, A, Y, B
The code is itself a reference to a classic 16-bit-era cheat, as Down, R, Up, L, Y, B at the start-up screen of the original Street Fighter II for SNES would unlock alternate colors and the ability for both players to select the same character.
The SF6 community was tipped off to the Easter egg after game director Takayuki Nakayama mentioned the existence of a secret in the commentary feature no one had found since the game launched in early June. Three days after Nakayama’s tweet, @pika0722chu_ posted a video to Twitter with confirmation of the code.
Street Fighter 6 is available on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
