Can you believe it’s been 30 years since martial arts specialists Ryu and Ken first hit the arcade with their now famous Hadokan manoeuvre in Street Fighter? After a ton of releases in the series since then, some spin-offs and crossovers, Capcom have put together a collection of 12 iconic titles for our gaming pleasure in the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection.
To highlight the legacy of Street Fighter, Capcom have brought together the original Street Fighter alongside 11 other classics such as Street Fighter II, Street Fighter III and other variations like the Alpha and Super ones. Four of the games – Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike – even let you venture online for test those fighting skills of yours against the world, with Global Leaderboards to climb too. The 30th Anniversary Collection also serves as a history lesson as it features a Museum full of concept art, character bios and interesting facts about each of the games included.
If you want to get your hands on the aforementioned martial arts duo – or other fan favourites and villains like Chun-Li, Blanka, M. Bison, Sagat etc. – you’ll be pleased to know Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Those of us in the Xbox world should shuffle on over to the Microsoft Store where you can own it for the price of £34.99!
