There are few more Iconic names in the fighting game space than Capcom’s Street Fighter franchise. Starting in the arcades in 1987, before *really* starting in 1991 (street fighter 1 is notoriously awful, Streetfighter 2 is effectively the real “First game”). The series has always been known for making new versions of their games along the way, and that trend may continue soon.
Recently, Capcom Tweeted saying that it will be celebrating the 35th anniversary of the street fighter franchise. Along with this tweet capcom released a new image featuring all of the franchises most Iconic Characters, Such as Ryu, M.Bison and Akuma. This, however, was not the only news for fans of the streetfighter franchise.
HERE COMES A NEW ANNIVERSARY!

The Japanese StreetFighter Twitter account also put out a (mostly) identical tweet, however it featured an extra sentence with some interesting details. The Tweet roughly translates as saying “please look forward to the future development of the street fighter series”, teasing there may be more news for street fighter coming in the not too distant future.
Besides this, Capcom also has another huge anniversary coming up in the next few years, with the hugely popular Monster Hunter franchise in 2024, as revealed by ryozo Tsujumoto in an interview with the legendary japanese publication Famitsu.
For streetfighters 35th anniversary, Capcom could easily release another compilation, similar to the street fighter 30th anniversy collection from 2018 (god was that 5 years ago? bruh), which included 12 older entries in the franchise, including the original streetfighter, as well as Street fighter 2, street fighter Alpha, and Street Fighter 3. Before that, there was the streetfighter 25th anniversary – Collectors set. Whatever we end up getting, fans will have to wait and see what capcom has planned for them when it makes its announcements on the next development for the streetfighter franchise.
