Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection announced for PS4

Plus, Sakura is coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Season 3

PlayStation Experience 2017 has come to an end, which means Capcom Cup 2017 has crowned a champion! Whether you visited our booth at PSX, attended any match at Capcom Cup, or were watching it all from your couch at home, thank you for the support as we bid 2017 farewell.

It’s been an incredible year for Street Fighter V as we brought Akuma back for Season 2 and introduced five brand new characters to the series, each with their own unique stories, designs, and playstyles. Season 3 will add all-new fighters to the roster, but we’ve also got four familiar faces that should make all Street Fighter fans excited for 2018!

In the past, we ended each year by showing silhouettes of the characters for the following year’s Season, but this time, we revealed all six for Season 3 at once using the cinematic opening for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition! Fan-favourites Sakura, Blanka, Cody, and Sagat will return in 2018 and will be joined by newcomers Falke and G – two mysterious fighters we can’t wait to show you more of.

Coming up first is the exuberant youth herself, Sakura! Making her first appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 2, she has now graduated from high school and searches for a deeper meaning of life, all the while continuing to challenge her rival, Karin, and her idol, Ryu.

This time, Sakura has a few new moves in addition to her signature emulation of Ryu’s playstyle. Sakura will be available on January 16, 2018, the same day Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition comes out. If you purchase the Season 3 Character Pass, you’ll receive not only Sakura, but her Battle Costume with colors 3-10 and Default Costume colors 3-10 unlocked!

Season 3 Character Pass holders will automatically get Blanka, Falke, Cody, G, Sagat, and their Battle Costumes and colors when they’re ready to join the fight in 2018. Beginning with Season 3, if you purchase each character individually with real money, you’ll also get the same Battle Costume and colors as you would if you have the Character Pass.

We also announced the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, a tribute to how far the series has come after being introduced in 1987. This collection contains 12 iconic titles in the series that each have their place in Street Fighter history:

  • 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

Am so buying Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection even just for the awesome Alpha 3 and proper versions of Street Fighter 2 without that ‘HD’ artwork I didn’t really care for in the HD Remix version

Looking forward to SFV finally having arcade mode too and I’d be excited for the added characters for season 3 but those passes are still kinda expensive which be why I haven’t got season 2 yet

Looking forward to the 30th Anniversary Collection. Hope it gets a physical release. Should hopefully get some nice limited edition packs too with themed controllers.

Shame there’s no EX Plus Alpha 1 & 2.

And speaking of Sakura… would really love Rival Schools as a PS1 classic!

They don’t have the rights to the EX games characters. I’d assume ingrid isn’t in the version of SFA3 either for the same reason, sadly.

And yes would love PS1 Classics of Rival Schools but also PS1 support on PS4 has to come first!

Yeah there was a blog post a couple weeks ago about those EX characters returning in the game Fighting EX Layer from Arika who developed SFEX.
