What’s better than playing Street Fighter? How about playing the Street Fighter Limited 25th Anniversary Edition by the end of this year? Better yet, how about playing it for half a million dollars?
Capcom announced the release of the Street Fighter Limited Edition 25th Anniversary Edition (a mouthful) on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 by September 18th, 2012. What’s cool about this collector’s set? While many other games offer some sort of pathetic DLC skin or in-game weapon, this set delivers one jam packed hadouken!
Lets start out with the games. It includes four of the most critically-acclaimed titles: 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.
Then there are the extra perks. How about a special video about the history and fanfare of Street Fighter? Not good enough? Not awesome enough, right? Capcom figured you’d say that, so they threw in Street Fighter IV and Super Street FighterIV Anime movies as well as all episodes of the Street Fighter animated series and Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie.
Get bored with the games and the hours of videos? It also includes a 64 page hardcover art book, an eight inch light up Ryu statue, and an 11 disc soundtrack! Overkill at its finest! It also includes a full-sized Ryu belt: for those who want to take your Street Fighter cosplay to a whole new level. All of this is confirmed by a certificate of authenticity!
Leave it to Street Fighter to come up with an epic Limited Edition bundle like this. You’ll be able to get your hands on this beautiful compilation for a modest $149.00.
