Capcom Announces Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for May 2018 Release

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the world's most popular video game series of all time, Capcom has announced the ultimate tribute to the Street Fighter arcade legacy in the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC coming in May 2018. The collection highlights the series' past in this anthology of 12 iconic titles with arcade-perfect balancing, 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.

Players will be able to take the fight online in four of the classic titles for even more gameplay options, including Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike. Players can recreate the classic arcade gaming experience by competing against the CPU while waiting for friends in online battles where they can put their fighting skills to the ultimate test. Lobbies support up to four players waiting to climb up the ranks through Ranked Matches. Each title will also have their own Global leaderboards and the "rewind" tech ensures low-latency online battles.
With the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, fans can re-visit historic moments from the series, including the introduction of two of gaming's most famous heroes - Ryu and Ken in the original Street Fighter, and explore the timeline of events that helped create one of the world's leading fighting game series. Fans can take a walk down memory lane in the Museum and view stunning pieces of concept art, scroll through character bios and uncover little known facts behind each game release with an interactive timeline. Audiophiles can also sit back and relax while listening to the most memorable Street Fighter tunes in the Music Player.


Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will have a simultaneous release in May 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC both digitally and at retail (console versions only).

No price?
Likely $40.

Seems like a great collection, though some of the entries are a bit redundant. Like Super Street Fighter 2 and then the Turbo version? Just go with the Turbo version and call it good. Don't even start me on the original SF2 versions..

No graphical enhancement? Street Fighter is my all-time favorite fighting game, but I don't want to battle with pixelated fighters.

It isn't as bad as you think. A lot of the Capcom retro games have some decent scaling and filters. Besides this is a nostaligia trip, most people probably wouldn't mind the original glory with bars on today's tv's. But hopefully Capcom put in some work like they did with the 3rd strike release with last gen consoles.

I was duped into buying SF IV. It was enough to kill the series for me. Forever.

Woohoo! Been a SF junkie since day 1, and I can't wait for it's release! No more breaking out old consoles and/or emulation!
