Street Fighter Anniversary Collection Leaks Via German Retailer

Capcom are pretty familiar with the notion of re-releasing old Street Fighter games. After all, it was only a few months ago that the company sought to revive Street Fighter II on the Nintendo Switch. While we don’t know how successful that has been, a leaked listing by German retailer CoolShop could indicate that the company are now looking to bring the same strategy to other platforms with a compilation release of Hyper Street Fighter II and Street Fighter III: Third Strike for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The listing has since been taken down, but it read as follows:

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection commemorates the 15th anniversary of Capcom’s series of fighting games. The compilation includes Hyper Street Fighter II, which combines previous Street Fighter II features and character variations from previous Street Fighter II editions, and Street Fighter III: Third Strike. Hyper Street Fighter II lets you mix and match characters from the different versions for a variety of matchups. Street Fighter III: Third Strike offers a total of 19 different playable characters, a Grade Judge System, and a Progressive Hit Frame System.

While the information we’ve been treated to does seem fitting in the way Capcom handles its collections, the company hasn’t provided any sort of comment in regards to the leak so, this is still speculation at this point in time.

  1. 15th anniversary?

    • OG Street Fighter was released in 1987, so 15th anniversary of the 15th anniversary?

  2. This collection was already released years ago on original Xbox (and PS2 but only in US) – I have a copy!

    But fingers crossed they’re doing a re-release for this gen!

  3. They should do a SF Alpha collection for current systems.
