It appears that Capcom is seemingly teasing an upcoming Street Fighter announcement ahead of its 35th-anniversary celebrations.
Of course, many have speculated (or hoped) that a recent social media tease may result in Street Fighter 6 being announced this year. We can all but hope.
“Here Comes a New Anniversary! Cheers to 35 years of epic fights, fireballs and iconic rivalries!” says a tweet from the Street Fighter Twitter account.
To be fair, the tweet doesn’t give anything away. It’s very likely that we’ll be greeted with documentaries, retrospectives, merchandise, and dare I say it, NFTs.
However, the last numbered entry in this iconic series was Street Fighter 5 in 2016. So, considering the fact that it’s been six years since SF5 was released, I think Street Fighter 6 is long overdue.
Furthermore, as spotted by VGC, the Japanese Street Fighter Twitter account was a little more teasing with the details.
“Street Fighter will celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2022. We have created a logo to celebrate the 35th anniversary with our supporters. Please look forward to the future development of the Street Fighter series.”
Will Street Fighter 6 be announced?
This tweet could be absolutely nothing. That being said, the words “please look forward to the future development of the Street Fighter series,” has fans hoping that a new game will be announced.
At this time, we must take all rumours and speculation with a pinch of salt. However, if Street Fighter 6 is announced, it will be interesting to see if it will be for all platforms, unlike SF5, which was PC and PS4.
