Capcom teases “big plans” for Street Fighter’s 25th anniversary

Ryu in search of "the perfect battle."

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Street Fighter franchise. On August 30, 1987, the first Street Fighter made its debut in Japanese arcades, and Capcom has big plans to celebrate the legacy it’s created.

“For 25 years Street Fighter‘s iconic hero [Ryu] 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,” said Capcom community manager Brett Elston on Capcom-Unity. “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.”

That logo can be seen below:
