Only a few hours have passed since Street Fighter 6 was officially announced, but the first controversy was not long in coming. The focus of criticism has been on its logo, since, as the creative director of Ars Technica, Aurich Lawson, has revealed, this logo is suspiciously the same as the one that can be found on the bank of images from Adobe, for a price of $79.99.
“The new logo for Street Fighter 6 is at 80 dollars on the Adobe Stock website”, it has been revealed on the aforementioned social network. I don’t even know what to say. He knew it was generic, but he wasn’t aware this was so bad. They have looked up ‘SF’ in the database”, then “added the 6” below.
Similar but not the same
Both logos have small differences. In the case of the Capcom titles, the hexagon looks thinner, while some parts have a more rounded appearance. At the moment, Capcom has not commented on this, but it is not the first time that one of its logos has been in the eye of the hurricane.
Recently, the Japanese amicably settled an accusation of possible plagiarism in the logo of the classic Resident Evil 4. The terms of said agreement have not been made public.
Street Fighter 6 has been announced through a teaser trailer, still without a release date or confirmed platforms. The previous installment was exclusive to PS4 on console, although it was also sold on PC.
After several years on the market, Capcom expanded the game with new game modes and fighters, free and paid downloadable content. At the end of 2021 it was confirmed that they were not going to work on more content, which already anticipated the possibility of a new chapter of the well-known fighting series.
