2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the Street Fighter franchise and Capcom is planning to celebrate throughout the year. While Street Fighter X Tekken is currently the biggest game in the franchise on the slate, and Capcom Community Manager Brett Elston hints that there’s more on the way before and after the series’ official birthday on August 30.
“Can you believe Ryu has been throwing fireballs and scarring chests for a quarter century” writes Elston. “For 25 years Street Fighter‘s iconic hero has wandered the globe in search of the perfect battle, and to commemorate his quest – not to mention the millions of fans who’ve followed him every step of the way – we’re preparing some big plans for 2012. The full details of this international celebration are still to come, but I can at least share the official logo that’ll emblazon all related products through the year.”
