[UPDATED] Street Fighter II (30th Anniversary Legacy Cartridge Edition) launches for SNES in November

Capcom and iam8bit have joined forces to create a brand-new limited edition of Street Fighter II for the SNES – Yes, you read that right. Featuring one of two coloured cartridges, each housing the original game code and fully playable on NTSC consoles, but there’s no word on whether a PAL version will be available.

The “Legacy Cartridge Collection” pictured above boasts the classic SNES box design, but the inside keeps it old-school by restoring the contents with the original instruction booklet, which is complimented with a new cover print and secret pack-in – this is to be revealed when you open the box for the first time.

There will only be 5,500 copies of the collection available worldwide, so get them while you can. The Street Fighter II: Legacy Cartridge Edition will ship in November 2017.

[UPDATE: 22:54 31/08/2017] So it turns out that there was a warning on the site that Jake missed when writing the original article. It seemed important enough to update the article once spotted.

“WARNING: Use of this reproduction game cartridge (the “Product”) on the SNES gaming hardware may cause the SNES console to overheat or catch fire. The SNES hardware is deemed a vintage collectible, so please exercise extreme caution when using the Product and make sure there is fire extinguishment equipment nearby.

“Use of the Product is at the sole risk of the user. The Product is sold “as is”.  Neither iam8bit, Inc. nor Capcom Co, Ltd. make any representation or warranty, express or implied, of any kind, including any warranty of merchantability of fitness for a particular use, or that the Product is safe to use, and iam8bit, Inc. or Capcom Co, Ltd. shall have no liability for damage to property or persons arising from use of the Product. Nintendo of America is in no way associated with the release of this Product.”

Bit of an odd thing to put in a product description for something you are selling to collectors, but at least they’re letting you know upfront.
