Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection Brings Twelve 2D Classics Up To Date

How do, Ken?

It’s already been 30 years of fighting in the streets since the original game debuted in arcades at the end of August 1987, but I guess Capcom have decided to celebrate the 1988 home releases for the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. Coming out in May 2018, it’s going to bundle together twelve Street Fighter games from the original through to Street Fighter III: Third Strike, releasing them together on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.

The full list includes Street Fighter, Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Street Fighter III, Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact and Street Fighter III: Third Strike.

Four of these games are even being updated with online multiplayer – Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike – with an arcade-like set up where you can fight against the CPU while waiting for a challenger to show up. Built with “rewind” technology for low-latency, lobbies will support up to four players as you try to climb the rankings, and each game will have its own global leaderboards.

Beyond the endless fighting, this is a commemorative package with tons of concept art, character bios, all the series’ original music and more in the Museum.
