Street Fighter is marking its 30th anniversary by bringing online to some of its classic games

Capcom is releasing 12 games on new gen consoles.


Street Fighter is releasing a mammoth collection for fans to mark its 30th anniversary: 12 of the classic games, for new gen consoles, including the 1987 original.

Capcom announced the bundle with a nostalgia-heavy video showing Street Fighter down the years, and what to expect when it’s released in May 2018.

The game first launched in arcades back in the late ’80s, and its characters, soundtrack and sound effects have reached legendary status.

Since 1987 Capcom says it’s sold more than 40 million units and created over 60 iconic characters.

Four of the games, which will stretch from the OG to Street Fighter III: Third Strike, will come with an online mode and global leaderboards – helping bring a bit more of that arcade feel back.

It will be released on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Switch, and include interactive timelines, concept art, and a musical archive.

Capcom wins.
