Capcom Announces Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set
Ryu and company are turning 25 years old this year, and Capcom is releasing one hell of a collector’s edition to celebrate.
Due on September 18th and priced at 149.99, the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set contains four games, a two-disc BluRay video, an 11-disc soundtrack, a statue of Ryu that lights up, a replica Ryu belt, and a individually number certificate of authenticity. Holy crap, that’s a lot of stuff.
Here’s the specifics, from the official press release:
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 “Fūrinkazan” in kanji!
- Certificate of Authenticity – Each Collector’s Set comes individually numbered complete with a certificate of authenticity.
That is a surprisingly comprehensive collector’s set…the 149.99 price tag might actually fit the bill for once. I know I’m tempted, as I’ve been following Street Fighter for my entire 25 years on this Earth. We’re the same age, after all.
