We’re now little more than a month out from the release of Street Fighter V, and Capcom is no doubt putting the final tweaks to the anticipated brawler ahead of its February 16 bow. 

As the marketing campaign begins to reach its crescendo, high-street retailers have begun promoting exclusive bundles for the soon-to-be-released sequel, with Best Buy’s physical copy seemingly introducing us to the “PS4 console exclusive game” signalling that while SFV will hit PC day and date, it won’t appear on Xbox One. 

It’s by no means the first time that companies have branded box art to indicate some form of exclusivity over their chief competitors, and Sony looks to be gearing up for a major push for Street Fighter V in only a month’s time. 

Street Fighter V will launch across PlayStation 4 and PC on February 16. In the meantime, here’s the box art in question. Thoughts? And do you think it’s something we’ll only be seeing more of further down the line?
