Street Fighter 6’s new logo could be an Adobe Stock image
Earlier this week, Capcom officially announced the latest installment of its competitive fighting video game, Street Fighter 6. However, its logo is now the subject of controversy as it bears similarities to an Adobe Stock image.
During the reveal, fans of the franchise were upset with the minimalistic logo, saying it lacked the style and vibrancy that previous entries were known for. It didn’t take long before Ars-Technica Aurich Lawson pointed out that the Street Fighter 6 logo looks surprisingly like a Adobe Stock image, listed at $80.
“I don’t even know what to say. I knew it was generic but I didn’t know it was that bad. They searched ‘SF’ on a stock logo site and rounded a few corners and added the 6. I can’t,” reads the tweet.

The logo on the official Adobe website was created by a user named “xcoolee” and has been used publicly before, with some modifications. In an interview with IGN, xcoolee has confirmed that they have indeed created the image and are ready to sell the exclusive rights to publisher Capcom. IGN also believes the new logo may, in fact, be a placeholder, and has reached out to the company for clarification.
Street Fighter 6 was announced after a week-long countdown on Capcom’s official website, via a short Trailer. The 40-second video revealed a confrontation between a boosted Ryu (main character) and Luke, the 45th and final DLC (downloadable content) character to join Street Fighter 5.
Capcom never confirmed if the close-up footage was in-engine or a cutscene, but based on their recent Resident Evil Remake projects, the graphics look promising. The focus is on hi-res texture, lighting and sweat, which look like remakes. More news on this is expected this summer.
The event marks Capcom’s 35th anniversary, and for this the publisher has also unveiled the “Capcom Fighting Collection”. It’s an anthology of 10 classic, pixelated, and 2D fighting title video games, including the entire Darkstalkers series, Street Fighter 2, and more.
