2022 marks the 35th anniversary of Capcom's legendary Street Fighter series and the company's already started celebrating by sharing a special new logo with fans.
Shared on social media, Capcom's new design depicts a large '35th' written in the original game's iconic styling. "Cheers to 35 years of epic fights, fireballs and iconic rivalries," the caption reads.
As spotted by VGC, however, a similar post shared on Capcom's Japanese channels goes one step further. According to VGC's translation, the official Japanese Street Fighter Twitter account not only discusses the new logo, but also offers a passing tease at the "future development" of the series.
"Street Fighter will celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2022. We have created a logo to celebrate the 35th anniversary with our supporters.
Please look forward to the future development of the Street Fighter series."
Of course, the last time a brand new entry in the Street Fighter series arrived on a Nintendo system was when Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition launched for the Nintendo 3DS, but Switch has been treated to the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection since then.
It's not yet clear whether a theoretical 'Street Fighter VI' is in development, nor whether any future games will launch for Nintendo's consoles, but here's hoping it's a 'yes' to both.
