Street Fighter Collection Bundles 12 Games In One Release

It's Street Fighter's 30th anniversary, and to mark the occasion Capcom is grabbing a large hairy armful of old games and releasing them all in the one package.

The bundle contains almost everything coming before Street Fighter IV (with the exception of the 3D EX games), from the 1987 original through to 3rd Strike.

  • 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
  • Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

In addition to just straight releasing the games, SFII, SFII Turbo, Alpha 3 and 3rd Strike will all feature online multiplayer.

Due out in May 2018, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is coming to PS4, XB1, PC and Switch.

    That's a lot of Street Fighter. Puts the 'value' of the switch release earlier this year for the same price in perspective.

      There's no price listed.

      Maybe the Switch version will be $1000.

        lol, kotaku a bit slow there, various outlets (like PS blog) are reporting its USD$39.99 so the same price as USFII released on switch earlier this year ;)

      You'd probably still need to purchase Ultra Street Fighter 2 in order to play as Evil Ken though.

        Yep that game is its own beast exclusive to swtich

    I've never played any of the Aphla or III trilogies, so this'll be a purchase for sure.

    Seems kinda weird to me to include all those different versions of Street Fighter 2. Is there any benefit of playing any of the iterations prior to the final one? Honest question.

      I agree, there's only 4 game there, with 3 -5 version of each one.

      I'll still buy it.

      iirc the hyper version was a hacked version where fighters like chun-li, Zangeif and Blanka were able to shoot out hadoukens while doing their respective button mash abilities (hundred hand slap, electricity, spinning lariate etc). along with other things.

      The new Challengers introduced Cammy, T.Hawk and Dee Jay. Championship edition allowed you play as the four bosses (Vega, Balrog, Sagat and Bison). Turbo however i cant remember all that well

        Hyper fighting was my favourite, it was basically a sped up version of champion edition but had a few extras. It was not the same as the hacked versions of SF2 (the ones which let you do crazy shit like have hundreds of fireballs & do special moves in the air etc).

        Cool, I didn't know that about Hyper Fighting. I did know about the updates that came with Championship Edition and Super Street Fighter 2, but as far as I can tell there's zero benefit to playing the original and CE when you've got Super Street Fighter 2 available, which is literally the base game with all the additions.

        I know the 3 Alphas are legitimately different games and not just 'updates' so their inclusion makes sense. Don't know enough about the 3 "3"s to comment.

        Nah that was the bootleg “rainbow edition”, hyper fighting is just a faster version of champion edition with a few extra special moves (like mid air hurricane kicks for ken/ryu)

        not quite..... there was a hacked version (not by capcom) of hyper fighting called rainbow where you could switch characters mid fight by pressing start, all specials could be done in the air, and everyone had fireballs. it was an illegal bootleg and arcades were fined $$ if they had it.

      Championship edition allowed you to play as the grand masters.
      Turbo/hyper increased play speed (moving from CPS1 to CPS2 hardware allowed this) plus added a few new special moves.
      The new challengers added 4 more characters.
      Super street fighter 2 added air specials. Then hyper super street fighter 2 added power up special moves.

        Cool. I suspected as much (incremental upgrades). I guess my point was I can't see why anybody would bother playing any of the SF2 versions prior to the final one, so adding them to the collection seems superfluous. I guess the novelty value is there.

          That but the play style is different with the originals. Less moves and abilities means you fight differently.

            Fair enough! I'm admittedly only a casual fighting game fan and clearly not who this bundle is aimed at.

    I'd buy it just for Alpha 1-3.

    I secretly hope they one day bring the SF2 revamp to Steam one day, if not i'll happily stick to Turbo until then haha

    Yeah, I'm after this for all the Alpha games (sadly missing 2 Gold, but I can deal with that), so it's a Day 1 for me for sure. That's a whole lotta Street Fighter, and it'll be fantastic to have (almost) all of the best games in one package.

    Who'd have thought that 2017 would be the year that Capcom got slighty less shit? Between this, Monster Hunter World and Mega Man, it's looking kinda rosy on the Capcom front.

      As someone who grew up playing the Zero releases instead of Alpha (as Australian arcades are listed in the Asia territory for Capcom sales, so we got the Asian version of game unless an operator did a parallel import) its kind of disappointing to not see Zero 3 Upper in the collection (this had an official arcade release on Naomi hardware).

      it is also disappointing there are no EX releases too - as the 4 arcade games in the series are a lot of fun. Also would have been great to get Pocket/Gem Fighters as a bonus

      All up though - this is a very solid compilation

    This will be a day 1 purchase for me but I must admit, I would much rather have seen a couple of the Street Fighter EX games included over 5 different versions of SFII.

    Just give me World Tour Mode as a stand alone game and I'll buy it.

    The Zero (alpha) games are a nice bonus and SF3 is fun for a bit of silliness. But where are all of the weird mini editions? Alpha 2-, EX plus Alpha, or the weird Arika made things like Fighter's Lair.
    Gimme the weird ones. Not just 300 re-releases of SF2.

    Nice, Alpha 3 was my most played PS1 game back in high school. A must buy for me.
