Capcom celebrates 25 years of Street Fighter and my wallet becomes a bit thinner
Yesterday Capcom announced this awesome package celebrating 25 wonderful years of Street Fighter. Say what you will about Capcom as of late, but this package screams greatness. Unlike the Mario and Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary packages or lack thereof, Capcom is delivering this amazing package that will be out on September 18th. The collector’s edition will run you $150 but as an insane amount of content. Here is everything the set includes.
- Past and Present Street Fighter Games – Playable on current gen PS3™ and Xbox 360 console systems, the four critically-acclaimed titles selected from the star-studded catalog are: Super Street Fighter® II Turbo HD Remix, Street Fighter® III 3rd Strike Online Edition, Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition with all costume DLC, and Street Fighter® X Tekken® including all character and Swap Costume DLC.
- Exclusive Video – The two-disc Blu-Ray set includes a documentary that highlights the profound influence the franchise has had on fans – and vice versa – throughout the years. The collection of videos also includes Street Fighter®IV and Super Street Fighter®IV Anime movies as well as all episodes of the Street Fighter animated series and Street Fighter®II: The Animated Movie.
- Light-up Ryu Statue – A specially commissioned and highly-detailed collectable Ryu statue stands prominently at 8” tall and features the iconic character in mid-Shoryuken, with flames lit from below.
- 11-Disc Soundtrack – Street Fighter game music spanning the past 25 years, in addition to remixes and fan-created music inspired by pastStreet Fighter games .
- 64-page Hardcover Art Book – A tribute to Street Fighter game fans from all over the world, the art book includes fan pieces submitted by professional and aspiring artists alike.
- Ryu’s Belt – Created to regulation specs, the full-size martial arts black belt is a replica of the one Ryu wears and even includes his classic “Fūrinkazan” in kanji!
- Certificate of Authenticity – Each Collector’s Set comes individually numbered complete with a certificate of authenticity.
I am glad that I held off on buying Street Fighter X Tekken because I will be putting up the money for this collection. Pre orders are now being accepted through the Capcom store, I don’t know if it will be available at any other retailer. What do you think, pretty impressive for milestone celebration?
