The 30th Anniversary of Street Fighter may have been this year, but today Capcom announced a belated present to fans of its fighting franchise. Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch sometime in May 2018.
The collection includes 12 titles: 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. Yep, all that in a single package on every modern platform. The assumption is these are the Arcade versions, as opposed to the many ports released over the years. Offline, every game will include save states so you can pause the action if you need to.
Out of the entire collection, four titles—Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike—will have support for online play. Players can fight it out against the CPU in online lobbies as they wait for other players to join. All four online-enabled games will have casual matches, ranked matches, and leaderboards.
The Collection also includes a full Street Fighter timeline, a Museum full of concept art, character bios, and facts about the development of each game. You can check out the Sprite Viewer, letting you look at all the excellent pixel art. There's also a Music Player, so you can enjoy all of the classic Street Fighter tunes. The porting process is being done by Digital Eclipse, who did the first Mega Man Legacy Collection and the Disney Afternoon Collection.
We’re excited to be part of Capcom’s announcement in the development of Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. Being fans ourselves, we're working hard with Capcom to deliver a Hadoken-packed experience full of features and plenty of surprises when it releases in 2018. pic.twitter.com/bxsJkZFwXi— Digital Eclipse (@DigitalEclipse) December 10, 2017
It might actually be the 31st Anniversary Collection, but regardless, this is a great package. The game will be $39.99 on every platform. (Which was the same price as the earlier-released Ultra Street Fighter II.)
