Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Logo

Capcom has unveiled the 25th anniversary logo for one of it's most popular brands and one gaming's longest running franchises, Street Fighter. "Wait, wasn't last year the 20th anniversary of the series?" You may be asking yourself. Nope, that was the 20th anniversary of Street Fighter II, which hit arcades in 1991. The original Street Fighter, the one with the awful controls and most don't even remember, was released back in 1987. What are Capcom's plans for the fighting juggernaut's 25th anniversary? All the details aren't known, but according to Capcom, the company has "big plans" for this milestone anniversary. Though the official anniversary of the series won't be until August 30, there's nothing wrong with getting a head-start on the celebrating. The logo is set to appear on all Street Fighter related products starting with the crossover fighter Street Fighter X Tekken, which is set to release on March 6 in North America.

Street Fighter II may be the game that made the series what it is today, but if there were no 1987 Street Fighter, there would be no Street Fighter II, no Alpha series or even any crossovers. The fighting genre as a whole may have been a completely different critter if Capcom didn't decide to get their feet wet with the first Street Fighter.

As for the logo itself, I personally think it looks pretty sweet. We've got the series' poster boy, Ryu in the background looking like he's ready to throw down with some nice gold coloring and of course, the red magic number. Man, 25 years is a long time to be executing Hadokens and Shoryukens.

In street fighting, no rules and regulations to follow. It is brutal and so cruel as to kill you. It is always best to avoid this situation at all costs.I love to play this game.
