Has the Street Fighter 6 logo been taken off a stock website? A Twitter user has discovered a striking similarity between the hexagon logo and a stock design available to anyone willing to shell out $80 for it.

In a long-awaited teaser trailer, Capcom announced the next installment of its popular fighting game franchise Street Fighter this Monday. The 40-second teaser trailer shows grizzled, bearded and noticeably thicker-set Ryu facing off Luke. At the end of the trailer, the game's rather generic logo, white letters "S" and "F" fitted inside a hexagon, appears.

Many found the new logo to be simplistic and uninspired, especially compared to the colorful red-and-yellow designs of the previous games every Street Fighter fan is well familiar with. But what barely anyone has expected is that the logo seems to have been purchased off a stock website for less than $100.

Twitter user @nzeropants discovered that the Street Fighter 6's hexagon logo appears to be a minor edit of a vector logo available to anyone on the Adobe Stock website for $79.99. The logo is actually free to be used for non-commercial purposes, but some theorize that Capcom at least paid for it.

After @nzeropants' tweet and another post went viral on Twitter, the page with the logo mysteriously disappeared from Adobe's website, although its cached version is still available.

Controversy aside, people had a lot to say about the logo whether it was taken off stock website or not.

Will public humiliation result in Capcom making any changes? Companies bullied into abandoning NFTs over the past months support this case, but only time will tell.
