Capcom has revealed that in May 2018, it will release Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch).
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will be an anthology containing no fewer than 12 iterations of Street Fighter, including the original 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. That should hopefully satisfy even the most dedicated of Street Fighter addicts.
According to Capcom, four of those games will be playable online, namely Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike. Each of those games will have its own global leaderboard, and Capcom’s “rewind tech” should ensure that while the games themselves may be retro, online latencies will be as low as any modern gamer demands.
Capcom has lifted the lid off several unique features that Street Fighter: 30th Anniversary Edition will possess. There will be a Museum in which gamers will be able to check out concept art, read character bios and learn obscure facts about each release via an interactive timeline. There will also be a Music Player providing access to the full pantheon of Street Fighter’s iconic music.
Elsewhere in the world of Street Fighter, Character Pass Season 3 for Street Fighter V is scheduled to arrive on 16 January 2018. It will contain Sakura, Blanka, Cosy and Sagat, along with the newcomers G and Falke. There are various bonus costumes on offer to those who pre-order the Character Pass, including nostalgia costumes for Alex, Ibuki, Juri, Kolin, and Akuma. Happy days indeed for Street Fighter devotees.
