Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection Will Have Save States, Character Bios, and More

Yesterday, it was announced that Capcom is working on a Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. The game would compile 12 titles from the iconic fighting game series and release sometime in May 2018 for the PlayStation 4. Now, Capcom has released a bit more information on the bundle.

As we learned last week, 12 titles will be involved in the 30th Anniversary Collection, including:

  • Street Fighter
  • Street Fighter II
  • Street Fughter II Champion Edition
  • Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting
  • Super Street Fighter II The New Challengers
  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo
  • Street Fighter Alpha Warriors’ Dreams
  • Street Fighter Alpha 2
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3
  • Street Fighter III
  • Street Fighter III 2nd Impact Giant Attack
  • Street Fighter III 3rd Strike

Four of those titles – Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Street Fighter III: Third Strike – will have online play enabled. Capcom has detailed the online aspects of the game a bit more, revealing that players will also be able to gather up four friends and join a lobby where they can play against the CPU while waiting for their next match, which Capcom calls a throwback to the days of waiting for someone else to challenge you in an arcade. For more on what players can find in the 30th Anniversary Collection, check out below:

Museum – Bask in the nostalgic feels of Street Fighter in the Museum, a collection of stunning concept art, pitch documents, and little-known facts behind each game’s release.

Interactive Timeline – Who needs time travel when you have the Interactive Timeline where you can browse all 30 years of Street Fighter and see how the series has evolved.

Character Bios – Did you know Chun-Li likes crepes? See how your favorite characters have changed over time by reading up on their backgrounds, stories, and personal traits. You can even view each character’s sprites and animations in each title!

Music Player – You won’t just see the history, you’ll also be able to hear it through the Music Player, so sit back and let the retro notes of memorable Street Fighter tracks flow through your ears. Find out if Guile’s Theme really does go with everything (It does)!

Save States – Don’t worry about abandoning the fight in single-player modes! You can save your progress and resume at any time for any of the 12 titles.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection releases May 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
