Thank goodness that ridiculed Street Fighter 6 logo got fixed

The initial Street Fighter 6 logo design didn't get the best reception last year. When Capcom released it back in February of 2022, gamers were, shall we say a little underwhelmed? No, let's be honest, they completely savaged it. And while we know that any logo design these days is going to have its detractors, in this case, the response was resoundingly negative – and we could see why.

The logo was uncharacteristically minimalist for the Street Fighter franchise, and it looked more than a little like it had been created using the simplest of logo makers – in fact, just a couple of days after it was released, the creator of an $80 stock image emerged offering to sell exclusive use of their design to game maker Capcom. Such a debacle could have seen the design consigned to our list of the worst logos of 2022. But thankfully, the company has put things right and come up with a new design that looks a lot better – and is certainly a lot cleverer (maybe they read our how to design a logo guide).
