Update: Amusingly, it has since transpired that the logo Capcom has created for the next Street Fighter outing is uncomfortably close to an Adobe Stock Graphic. Oops!
Original Story [Tue 22nd Feb, 2022 09:00 GMT]: Capcom just unleashed a teaser trailer for Street Fighter 6, with a view to showing off more of the game this summer.
The company has also revealed what appears to be a new logo for the outing, and what's striking is that it's a big change from what's gone before. Whereas previous Street Fighter logos have used an eye-catching, two-tone gradient colour scheme (usually yellow and orange), this new logo is very basic:
Now, there's every chance that this is simply a placeholder logo and that the final one will be revealed later this year, but if that proves not to be the case, then this is quite a shift from what has gone before. But perhaps that's the point? Capcom clearly wants to appeal to the eSports crowd, and this new logo is very much in keeping with that.
Street Fighter 6 hasn't been confirmed for a particular platform as yet. The fifth entry was a Sony console exclusive, but prior to that, instalments had appeared on many different systems, including the SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo 3DS.
The Switch is no stranger to the series, either; we've had Ultra Street Fighter II and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, and the upcoming Capcom Fighting Collection is coming to Nintendo's hybrid console, too.
