Street Fighter 6’s controversial logo bears similarities to an Adobe Stock image. The creator of the stock image told IGN that they now want to sell the exclusive rights to it to Capcom.
As first pointed out by Ars Technica’s Oric Lawson (Below), the Street Fighter 6 logo bears a striking resemblance to a logo design available through Adobe Stock photo store, Available with an extended license for $80, and created by a user called xcoolee.
The design is available as an Adobe Illustrator file, which means modifications can easily be made to the original file – and Adobe Stock licenses allow modification for commercial use. The design appears to have been used publicly before (such as using Twitter 100 jeep refers) to a different modified version apparently used as a logo for SF Connexion Science Fiction Conference in France
Speaking to IGN, xcoolee confirmed that they had created the Adobe Stock image, and revealed that they were looking to sell exclusive rights to the image to Capcom, and remove it from sale to third parties. We have contacted Capcom to comment on the similarities in the designs, and offer the xcoolee for sale.
Even if this turned out to be true, the new logo design didn’t get as much praise as it does. Street Fighter 6 was announced on February 21, and the reveal of its logo immediately caused controversy among fans, many of whom see the apparent change from Vibrant text logos for the Street Fighter series To a more daring and disappointing monochromatic style.
It’s not clear if the new logo is a placeholder, and we’ve asked Capcom to clarify that as well.
After a leak in the year 2020, countdown last week, Street Fighter 6 was announced via a teaser trailer (above), featuring new rivalries for fighters Ryu and Luke. More information will arrive this summer.
