Capcom celebrates 25 years of Street Fighter

Now that we’ve rung in the New Year, it’s time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter. The first iteration of the classic fighting game came out in August of 1987, and Capcom has wasted no time announcing the occasion. Community manager Brett Elston has posted a sharp new logo on Capcom Unity, saying “Can you believe Ryu has been throwing fireballs and scarring chests for a quarter century?”

While he doesn’t give any concrete details, Elston mentions that this is the anniversary logo “that'll emblazon all related products through the year,” suggesting the possibility of t-shirts, action figures, posters, or maybe even a game to commemorate the occasion. Never one to miss an opportunity to celebrate the studio’s legacy of classics (just look at all the recent re-releases), rest assured that Capcom’s “big plans for 2012” will surely involve something fans can buy.
