2022 marks the 35th anniversary of one of the most iconic video game series of all time — Street Fighter. It looks like the folks over at Capcom are celebrating with a slick new website focused on paying tribute to the franchise's legacy.

The special website has sprouted up and features a handful of cool things related to over three decades of fighting streets. Most notably on this site, however, is an impressive history log that includes initial release dates for seemingly every main Street Fighter game that has been released over these last 35 years.

As one might expect, this website is available in both Japanese and English, though portions of it are strictly in Japanese.

Those who visit are greeted with a message from the Street Fighter development team. What serves as a big thank you to fans also talks about the expansion of the series from a video game to other media and how more content is in the works for the 35th anniversary.

There are also news updates pertaining to Street Fighter here, and a few new pieces of artwork from classic Capcom artists to look over. On top of that, many of the main members of the development team have clickable cards where they've left their own words on the series' 35 years, though all of these messages remain in Japanese despite switching the language over.

The coolest thing about this website, though, is the title release timeline that starts with the original game on August 30, 1987 and runs all the way up to Street Fighter 6 in 2023.

It isn't often that we see all of these initial release dates gathered together like this, and it really is eye opening when you look it all over.

From what we can see, all of the main Street Fighter series are represented here. Street Fighter 1 - 6, Alpha (Zero), and some of the compilations / special releases are also included.

This history trek also notes the platforms each game was available on and on what day they launched.

If you're a fan of Street Fighter, it is definitely worth it to head to the new 35th anniversary website and have a look around.
