Capcom is planning a big celebration in honor of Street Fighter’s 25th anniversary, but they’re not saying what exactly they’re planning to do. A new game? Retro compilation? A special fan meet-up or tournament? Capcom’s not saying, but they are giving members of the Street Fighter community a chance to participate in the upcoming celebration.
In a post on Capcom’s Unity blog, the company announced that they’re taking submissions for fan art and fan created remixes to be used in the upcoming anniversary event, whatever that may be. Interested artists can submit their work here, while musicians can upload their Street Fighter inspired tracks to this site.
This isn’t the first time Capcom has reached out to the community for contributions — The Devil May Cry HD Collection contains a selection of some of the better DMC fan-art out there, and Capcom infamously saw fan input for the direction of Mega Man Legends 3 (which they cancelled) and took requests from fans as to the features they wanted in the last-gen Mega Man Collection compilation disc (which they promptly ignored.)
Still, if you’ve got an artistic inclination and want to get your name out there, this is a good opportunity. As for what Capcom’s planning to do for Street Fighter’s anniversary, your guess is as good as mine. For Resident Evil’s 15th anniversary last year they re-released RE4 and Code Veronica has HD downloads, but seeing as Capcom’s already re-released most of the well-liked entries in the Street Fighter series in one form or another in the last few years, I don’t know what they could possible do game-wise for SF’s silver anniversary.
