Who could believe that the Street Fighter series is now 25 years old and still growing strong to this day. Although the first game released in 1987 was the start of the franchise, it was really the release of Street Fighter II in 1991 that catapulted the series into mainstream status.
Capcom announced on its official blog 2012 is a big year for Street Fighter fans and Capcom want to celebrate the series in style.
Capcom did not reveal what kind of celebration this might be but it’s likely to be held on August 30th when the franchise truly turns 25 years old!
Street Fighter fans can celebrate early when they can get to play Street Fighter x Tekken in March.
