A few hours after the presentation of the logo of its new Street Fighter 6, Capcom faces the revolt of Internet users who discovered that it is a design purchased on Adobe Stock.
A few hours ago, Capcom revealed its new fighting game Street Fighter 6 after a week-long teaser. If the first trailer only showed two fighters, including a Ryu closer to the Hulk design (that of Edward Norton, not the wrestler Hulk Hogan), he especially unveiled the new logo, very stylized and therefore very far from the usual.
Fans have since scoured the net for inspiration, accusing the designers of being too lazy”. And after a fairly quick search, some have come to the conclusion that Capcom didn’t bother: the logo can be found on a bank of free photos. Not even on an obscure site, since it is Adobe Stock, sold at 80 dollars. The simple difference remains the addition of the 6 on a circle in the form of a spray (it’s djeunz).
Several influential Internet users have therefore asked SNK and Capcom to review the copy before the game is released. Some have also proposed alternatives that are not much more expensive for a company the size of Capcom: using creation platforms that pay unique artists, for example. Obviously, all this has also given rise to hijackings on the networks.
Please @CapcomUSA_ If there’s one thing w/ #StreetFighter6 that practically EVERYONE has come to an agreement on is the logo. We understand 6 will be different than previous SF’s, visually & otherwise. But -something- has to be done abt the logo. Praying for the best in 4 months. pic.twitter.com/AIy8JyGnbT

The story does not say if Capcom contacted the original author of the image to get his logo back against a real contract. Moreover, by digging a little, the creator has also designed a logo that looks like the esports team Team SoloMid.
