Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection out 29th May, pre-order on PS4 and get Ultra Street Fighter IV

Plus, full details on how the Collection’s Arcade mode will work online

First announced at Capcom Cup during PlayStation Experience 2017, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection heralded years of nostalgia in one game to fighting game players all over the world. We’re proud to announce that Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is officially coming on 29th May, 2018 to PlayStation 4! Everyone at Capcom is thrilled to bring this collection to you as it’s a true time capsule built for modern day entertainment systems.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Edition

The games included in the collection

The 12 arcade perfect titles included in Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection that have remained pivotal to the series as a whole are:

  • 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

All of these titles will be immediately available once you start the game, so no need to unlock any of them! Furthermore, this collection supports Dualshock 4 controllers and PS4 fight sticks.

Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike are the four titles that are playable online as they each represent the final version of their respective game in the series!

Play Arcade mode and get challenged by online players

Four players can join up online where two of them will spectate the match while they wait for their turn to play.
These four games also feature a recreation of the classic arcade experience where a challenger will step up to the machine to fight you, but this time it’s all online!

As you play through Arcade mode, you’ll be interrupted by opponents you wouldn’t have had the chance to fight in your local arcade.

Once the match is over, you’ll be sent straight back to Arcade Mode. You can freely turn this option on and off if you’d rather complete Arcade Mode without someone looking to pick a fight.

Online play also features rollback technology that provides low-latency matches with the ability to adjust your own input buffer speed via the in-game menu to keep your online experience smooth.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Edition

Head to the Museum to check out concept art, sprites, music and more

The arrival of Street Fighter II changed the fighting game genre forever and continues to hold a special place in any gamer’s heart. Even if it was the only game in the series you’ve played so far, you can learn more about it in the Museum by viewing pitch documents, concept art, and sprites.

If you’re feeling adventurous, boot up any of the titles in the Street Fighter Alpha or Street Fighter: III series to experience the evolution of Street Fighter gameplay right at your fingertips. It is these games that introduced fan favourite characters like Rose, Sakura, Cody, Urien, and Q, who you can get to know further by reading all their character biographies. If you’re interested in only checking out the Museum or Music Player, you’ll be happy to know that everything in those features is unlocked from the start!

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Edition

Pre-order on PS4 and get Ultra Street Fighter IV as a digital code

Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike is the most recent release in Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, arriving on PlayStation 2 in 2004 almost 14 years ago.

With that thought in mind, we still need a way to connect it to the current Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

That’s why when you pre-order Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection on PlayStation 4, you’ll receive Ultra Street Fighter IV to complete the legacy! If you pre-order the physical copy, you’ll receive the game as a digital code. If you pre-order the digital copy, you’ll receive the code one to two weeks after 29th May.

Street Fighter IV exploded on PlayStation 3 in 2009 and received its final updated version with Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 4 in 2015, which included all 44 playable characters – the most of any game so far. Street Fighter IV was instrumental in revitalizing the series in the new millennium as players flocked to both local and online tournaments alike. It paved way for what we know now as the Capcom Pro Tour! Don’t miss out on this offer!

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Edition

We’re incredibly humbled by these past 30 years and are looking forward to seeing you fight it out in Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection on 29th May.

All of this looks great but don’t you think most Street Fighter fans already have Ultra SFIV on PS4 since it’s been very cheap in PSN sales over the past couple years? I bought it in November 2016 for £7.99 :)

(Season 3 pass on SFV would be a nice incentive for me but you know I’m gonna be buying this SF collection either way) :P

There’s always one! They give you a Free copy of a game with your purchase and you complain that you and others already own it! Burn the code, give it to a friend, pretend you didn’t receive it but why complain that the free game is free?

Wasn’t a complaint, I was just trying to figure out (in a light hearted way, see the smileys and lack of aggressive language) their reasoning of a freebie that the majority of players are likely to already have since this is a Street Fighter collection so it’s aimed at Street Fighter players who like a wide range of the SF games and to collect all the versions and many of those same players would likely have already ‘collected’ USFIV especially since it has been very cheap many, many times. Just chill dude. Not everyone is trying to be a troll and hating on things. I just like to see the logic and thought in these sorts of decisions. For example Uncharted Lost Legacy used Jak & Daxter as a freebie which is an old game too but at the time brand new to the PS4 and so was a really nice choice of bonus and helped a player decide if they wanted to buy the full J&K series on PS4. USFIV has been available on the system for years.

I love Street Fighter and all but £34.99 is a bit much. I’ll bite when it’s £19.99.

I think it a lil high but given how much I love the series and how many of my faves are in this set and all the hours of play I’ll be putting into it I think it’s probably worth it for me but will see what my bank account is like on the day Hm..how did I make my text italic? I sorta hit the wrong keys when I started this post and this happened. :O
