When Street Fighter 6 was first unveiled earlier this 12 months, one of many weirdest and most noteworthy issues about its in any other case unremarkable trailer was the sport’s brand. Which, as I stated on the time, seemed lots like a chunk of clipart.
If you missed it, right here is the Street Fighter 6 brand because it was proven off in February on the left, whereas on the correct is a chunk of clipart out there commercially from Adobe for $80.
Considering the sequence’ lengthy and proud historical past with badass logos, this was an enormous disappointment! I imply, take a look at these infants!
So it was fascinating to see right now that, when the sport resurfaced with a brand new trailer, that cheap-ass brand had been eliminated and swapped out with one thing a bit slicker.
It’s truly not that totally different. It retains the hexagonal form of the primary effort, together with its font, however switches issues up barely by turning that hexagon right into a “6″. One that in a neat trick might be learn two methods, by flipping it on its aspect to disclose the Roman numerals “VI”, paying homage to the actual fact each different sequel within the sequence up till this level has used that conference (“Street Fighter II”, “Street Fighter IV”, and so forth):
Is it now a nice brand? No. But it’s now not a catastrophe, I feel it’s fascinating they went and altered it so quickly, and I believed the flipped factor was neat sufficient to share! If you wish to learn extra on the sport’s massive gameplay trailer from earlier right now, head right here and let Ian—who is aware of extra about Street Fighter than the remainder of us put collectively—stroll you thru all of the adjustments, together with the introduction of a really odd open-world part that appears lots like NBA 2K’s neighbourhood, solely with out the sneaker shops.
