If you’re a fan of the classic Street Fighter games, chances are you didn’t like the vastly different logo that Capcom debuted for Street Fighter 6 back in February. Its departure from nostalgia wasn’t the only element that irked players, though. Many likened it to an $80 stock image that was readily available on Adobe Stock.
Sony has now released the latest trailer for the game, which is scheduled for launch next year on the PS5, PS4, PC, and Xbox Series X and S. In it, the video introduces a redesigned emblem that’s still hexagonal like its predecessor but is arguably an improvement because it falls into the background.
Whereas the previous version had the initials SF plastered on it, the new hexagon is shaped like the number six. It thus makes sense for the wordmark to take the foreground, reading “Street Fighter 6” in full.
Notably, the makeover sports an interesting detail that makes much more sense when animated. As Kotaku shares, the logo can be rotated to reveal the Roman numerals VI, a nod at the style of the brandings for the earlier games. It now reads ‘6’ upright and ‘VI’ on its side.
