It’s fair to say that there quite a number of Street Fighter fans who can seriously say that they’re a ‘hardcore’ veteran when it comes to supporting the franchise and buying every single game. Capcom is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter and to mark the occasion, a special Collector’s Set will be available to buy in a few months time bringing all sorts of goodies.
We have seen Collector’s Editions in the past which cost over $100 and seeing the content that Capcom is offering for $150 here, we actually think that this is a very reasonable deal. Their Collector’s Set for Street Fighter will include a total of 15 discs, a statue of Ryu, an art book and also a replica of Ryu’s belt.
The discs in question are a combination of soundtracks and previous games. The soundtracks cover the entire Street Fighter franchise which is pretty cool in itself for video game music lovers, whilst the games on offer include Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike (online edition), Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and wait for it, Street Fighter X Tekken as well.
What’s even better is that the SSFIV and SFXT discs will come with all character and costume DLC, including the characters that are currently locked away on console for Street Fighter X Tekken. Finally, you’ll also get a Blu-Ray containing documentaries, anime movies and the original Street Fighter 2: Animated Movie which is quite a watch.
Did we mention that the Ryu statue lights up as well? All that can be yours in September for $150. The big question that most of you are asking now though is whether the package is worth it or not. You could argue that most Street Fighter fans already own the games that Capcom are offering and if they are celebrating the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter, then shouldn’t the company be including the original Street Fighter game and the likes of Street Fighter II Championship Edition as starters? That would probably make the package much more appealing, but we’re guessing it would take too much time and effort for Capcom to include the original games that made the franchise famous.
What are your thoughts on the Collector’s Set folks? Would you have liked to see some more game content as well? There’s no Alpha games either which may be disappointing to a lot of you.
