Can you believe Ryu has been throwing fireballs and scarring chests for a quarter century? For 25 years Street Fighter’s iconic hero has wandered the globe in search of the perfect battle, and to commemorate his quest – not to mention the millions of fans who’ve followed him every step of the way – we’re preparing some big plans for 2012. The full details of this international celebration are still to come, but I can at least share the official logo that’ll emblazon all related products through the year.
I’m kind of a date freak, so I feel compelled to mention August 30 is the series’ official 25th birthday. I hear Ryu prefers mizuyokan , if anyone’s buying.
