Capcom loves releasing fighting games. I’ll admit, I own quite a few Capcom fighting titles, but I don’t always give them the love that’s needed. Maybe it’s because I’m bad at them…one day I’d love to have a nice fight-stick to help increase my chances of winning. That being said, today Capcom has announced the limited edition Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set, coming to the USA on September 18th. This happens to be 5 days after the 25th anniversary of my birth, so I choose to believe that Capcom is releasing this collector’s set as a late birthday gift for me. One can wish, right?
The limited edition Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set includes:
- Past and Present Street Fighter Games – Playable on current-gen PS3™ and Xbox 360 console systems, the four critically-acclaimed titles selected from the star-studded catalog are: 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.
- Exclusive Video – The two-disc Blu-Ray set includes a documentary that highlights the profound influence the franchise has had on fans – and vice versa – throughout the years. The collection of videos also includes Street Fighter®IV and Super Street Fighter®IV anime movies as well as all episodes of the Street Fighter animated series and Street Fighter®II: The Animated Movie.
- Light-up Ryu Statue – A specially commissioned and highly-detailed collectable Ryu statue stands prominently at 8” tall and features the iconic character in mid-Shoryuken, with flames lit from below.
- 11-Disc Soundtrack – Street Fighter game music spanning the past 25 years, in addition to remixes and fan-created music inspired by past Street Fighter games .
- 64-page Hardcover Art Book – A tribute to Street Fighter game fans from all over the world, the art book includes fan pieces submitted by professional and aspiring artists alike.
- Ryu’s Belt – Created to regulation specs, the full-size martial arts black belt is a replica of the one Ryu wears and even includes his classic “Furinkazan” in kanji!
- Certificate of Authenticity – Each Collector’s Set comes individually numbered complete with a certificate of authenticity.
This is a LOT of content, and a really well built collector’s set. So of course, it must cost you an arm and a leg, right? You can purchase this big bundle for $149.99, which is a decent price for the amount of items included. At this moment, I’m debating on spending my money on an item such as this as a “birthday present” to myself.
