Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection revealed, coming to Switch

Posted on December 10, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Capcom has announced Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, and it’s coming to Switch.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary is an anthology of 12 iconic titles, including the original 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, and Street Fighter III: Third Strike.

Capcom also passed along the following information about the collection:

Players will be able to take the fight online in four of the classic titles for even more gameplay options, including Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: Third Strike. Players can recreate the classic arcade gaming experience by competing against the CPU while waiting for friends in online battles where they can put their fighting skills to the ultimate test. Lobbies support up to four players waiting to climb up the ranks through Ranked Matches. Each title will also have their own Global leaderboards and the “rewind” tech ensures low-latency online battles.

With the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, fans can re-visit historic moments from the series, including the introduction of two of gaming’s most famous heroes – Ryu and Ken in the original Street Fighter, and explore the timeline of events that helped create one of the world’s leading fighting game series. Fans can take a walk down memory lane in the Museum and view stunning pieces of concept art, scroll through character bios and uncover little known facts behind each game release with an interactive timeline. Audiophiles can also sit back and relax while listening to the most memorable Street Fighter tunes in the Music Player.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection launches in May 2018. Watch the first trailer below.

    No fair… you beat me to the punch, Brian! LOL All humor aside, thanks for posting this announcement. It seems to me that the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is coming to the Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC. I have a feeling that CAPCOM was impressed that Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers was a system seller only for the Switch… over 500,000 copies sold worldwide.

    Fighting to save the world… oops, wrong one.

  • Chaos_Knight

    Welp, no point in picking up USF2 now.

    • TDude73

      Did you know that Ultra Street Fighter II was the reason why it was successful on the Switch according to CAPCOM?

      • GoldenTriforce

        What is “it” in the context of the Switch?

      • Chaos_Knight

        And this collection will cost $40, the same price as USF2.

        • raptor*plays*pixels

          wow, i’m absolutely getting day one, then. don’t pre-order though folks, it’s capcom. okay, i edit my statement. i’m getting day 30. should be good to go by then.

      • Hansel Gunarto

        Well said, according to capcom. It has no relations to everyone’s point of view

    • Eric Whetsell

      USF2 has evil ryu and violent ken. Plus they had HD graphics for the game.

      • Chaos_Knight

        Oh yeah, 2 extra clone characters and pretty (aka crappy and reused) art is sooooo worth $40.

  • wow those of you who bought that one remake of street fighter 2 have got to have egg on your faces

    • Armandood

      As a Street Fighter fan, I’m really happy for this announcement. I’m gonna get this physically for PS4 and digitally for the Switch.

      • Aline Piroutek

        Why both version when you have an hybrid? If it is the Dpad, don’t buy the Switch version at all.

        • Yolkghost

          If it’s the dpad just use the pro controller if you’re that bothered by it.

          • dang69

            The Dpad blows on the Pro controller. Hot garbage. I got a SN30 Pro on the way to compensate.

        • smashbrolink

          Why avoid the system? That’s just silly when the pro controller exists.XD

          • Aline Piroutek

            Well, some people play only in portable mode with the Joycons attached like the Vita.
            Btw, Capcom could make a bundle with a Dpad left Joycon to people who play single player(not sharing the joy).

    • Eric Whetsell

      No, because it had HD and two new characters, plus it had playable akuma.

  • Captain N

    Now this is awesome !!

  • Snackster1001

    Cool, definitely picking this up. REALLY unfortunate for anyone who bought USF2 though.

  • Vinicius

    Gonna pick this up just to play all the SFIII versions.

  • theFooFighter

    Damn I can’t say I fully regret buying usf2 since I’m never one to complain about having another game in my collection but there’s no way in hell I would have bought it if I knew this was coming

  • GoldenTriforce

    $40 is basically what USFII costed right?

    • Dylan W

      It’s the exact same price actually.

      • GoldenTriforce

        Well, USFII seems like even more of a rip-off now.

        • Dylan W

          I actually just bought USFII recently because I had never played Street Fighter II before but I’m probably going to return it and wait till this collection comes out.

          • raptor*plays*pixels


    • Hansel Gunarto

      30th Anniversary Bundle doesn’t consist USF2 but nobody cares anyway, I bought USF2 and it’s such an unbalanced game. But this bundle doesn’t have SF4… may I ask why, capcom?

      • raptor*plays*pixels

        the 35th anniversary edition will have it 😉

  • Gilmar Venancio

    If USF2 sold 400k +, this could sell 1 million maybe?

    • Dylan W

      Maybe, but USF2 had the benefit of releasing close to the Switch’s launch when there was hardly any games at retail. Now, there’s a lot more options in terms of retail Switch games so I don’t know if this will sell as well as USF2. This one is at least worth the $40, though.

      • Gilmar Venancio

        Yes, but this have much bigger value than USF2, Four games with online multiplayer and 12 overall, great deal for $40.

        • Dylan W

          Oh, I know that it has a better value, no doubt. I just don’t know if it will sell more than USFII. Again, USFII had the benefit of being one of the few retail Switch games during its first 3 months. At that time, day one Switch owners were hungry for games because many had already beaten the main story of Zelda and did a decent amount of exploration. Honestly, there were some games like Lego City Undercover and Puyo Puyo Tetris that I bought because I didn’t know how many worthwhile 3rd parties were coming to Switch this year. Games like L.A. Noire, Batman: The Telltale Series, Doom, Mario + Rabbids, and Resident Evil Revelations Collection had not been announced back in April when I purchased my Switch. Hell, the first 3 games I bought were Zelda, Bomberman, and Mario Kart.

          • Dumdum

            You’re right that part of USF2’s appeal laid on its launch date being close to the Switch’s launch date. That said, in the intervening months since, there’s still plenty of room for fighting games for the system. Sure, Neo Geo classics have been popping up near weekly for the system, but fighting games that most people have heard of boils down to what Namco, Capcom, and to some degree, Arcsys have to offer. So that’s basically just USF2 and Pokken for now.

            I’m thinking you also have those fence sitters on USF2 jumping in for this collection whole hog. I’m one of those, since I’m not really a fighting game player, but would be fun to have a smorgasbord of SF games around in times when friends come over.

      • Zeebor

        It’s also on more platforms though, including Xbox, who haven’t gotten any Street Fighter this generation.

  • James Fox

    At least people get the chance to play the original Street Fighter beyond the half-assed TG-16 port known as “Fighting Street”

  • Dylan W

    Lol, time to take back Ultra Street Fighter II! xD

  • Kyle K. Moore

    Yeah that’s crazy…USFII better drop to like $5

    • Dylan W

      Realistically, the physical version will probably drop anywhere from $20-30 because Capcom still wants to make a profit and cartridges cost more than discs.

      • GoldenTriforce

        If retailers have already bought X amount of copies, though, they can pick whatever price they want based on demand. If there are no more restocks, which their likely won’t be, and the demand drops, which it likely will, retailers will have to move units, and in turn cut the price a lot. Capcom directly won’t be cutting the price much, on the eShop, or if they have any online stores.

        • Dylan W

          I actually do think that the eShop price will come down eventually. USFII should’ve only been $20-25 at launch anyway but especially now that this will be a thing on the Switch in 5 months.

          • GoldenTriforce

            On one hand maybe, on the other hand most eShop games don’t normally go down in price, even third party ones. Unless they’re made by Atlus of course. Then being on sale basically becomes MSRP.

  • ««H3©TöR»»

    WELP. That makes USFII irrelevant now.

    • raptor*plays*pixels

      pretty much…

      sent from my iphone

  • Exy

    [Street Fighter II KO echo] THE EVALUATION

  • Stuart

    Okay,this is something because when this got leaked months ago there wasn’t a Switch version.

    And this is actually worth the 40 dollars price, but more than ever they have to drop the price of USFII,it is ridiculous for that game to keep costing the exact same of this way better bundle.

    • Dylan W

      Yeah, I expect USFII to drop to $20 or $25 at retail in a couple months just because this will be available on store shelves in May.

    • Zeebor

      This is by Digital Reality, the guys that Did Mega Man Legacy 1 and Disney Afternoon. They were probably in the middle of this before getting the word in to make their emulation engine work for Switch for Mega Man.

  • TruExtent

    I’m not too well versed with the Street Fighter series but isn’t the group of the 5 “II” games the same thing with small improvements and maybe an extra character? And for that matter is that the same case with the 3 “III” titles? Or am I missing something here?

    • FutureFox

      That’s correct. No DLC back in the day so making a new game entry was the only option.

    • Zeebor

      In the FGC, it is said that “Hyper Fighting is to Super Turbo, as Ultimate Mortal Kombat is too Mortal Kombat 9.” The point is, the FGC really likes version control. I really want Alpha 3 MAX, but what can you do.

  • Justmadeanaccount2

    You can get all these games on PS2 for under 30 bucks. lol I would have been more impressed with a new Street Fighter, or at least Street Fighter IV.

    • FutureFox

      Good thing the PS2 or PS2 emulated on PS4 is portable.

      • Eric Whetsell

        But you can’t take the ps2 with you, unlike the switch.

    • GoldenTriforce

      Capcom’s a company, not an eBay. They still have to market, pay for cartridges/discs, pay retailers a certain cut, pay console manufacturers etc. By the end they only make around 20% of the money you pay, no matter what the value is elsewhere, they still need to make money on the title.

    • Zeebor

      But can you tell a small Domican child he sucks at Hyper Fighting from Des Moines on the PS2 version?

    • DrWilly

      Who even plays on PS2 nowadays

      • Justmadeanaccount2


  • ShonenJump

    Switch portability + 3rd strike+online = day one

  • Reggie

    May consider this one, even though I’m not much of a fighting game fan.

  • Roto Prime


  • FutureFox

    USFII confirmed scam.

    • Bap

      USFII’s sales likely gave this the push it needed for a Switch version.

  • Locky Mavo

    This is pretty awesome, but why no Street Fighter IV?

  • Zeebor

    If I could put my Switch in sleep mode and listen to 80% of the Street Fighter series soundtrack I would be SO happy.

    If it was the PSP version with Eagle and Ingrid I’d be even happier.

  • Padre

    Bunch of old games similar to each other. How is this suddenly a godsent? USF2 was at least new title, and better than SSF2T.

    • Bap

      Uhhh, It comes with 3rd Strike and for the first time online Alpha 3, this is pretty big news.

      • Padre

        Wow, so people like SF3 now? What has happened in 15 years… Its the worst received SF yes? I think its easily the worst SF so far in every scale, original at least invented something new. Also the copied SNK animations and colors on 3 look terrible.

        • Bap

          Vanilla SFIII isn’t good. 3rd Strike is one of the top fighting games ever made. Also I disagree is 3S’s colors looking bad.

  • Bart

    Alpha 3 with online play? That’s awesome.

    Also all 3 versions of SFIII, and Third Strike with online play… *drools*

  • MagcargoMan

    IT’s cool to see many Street Fighter games under a single collection, but why would you want to even want that many versions of Street Fighter II? Like you’d play the earlier versions when then later versions have more characters and improvements.

    • Radish

      This is the type of thing that hardcore Street Fighter enthusiasts would be all over. They notice the variations between the games in terms of gameplay, graphics, sound, the entire experience. Given that it’s the 30th anniversary collection it makes sense to release all variations for the fans who have supported the series the past 30 years.

      Just like a lot of people don’t understand why someone would play Smash Bros Melee when you can play Smash 4 which has the most characters, the most stages, the most music selections, the best graphics, etc. But we all know the extremely dedicated fans of particular games do exist. So Capcom is smart not to leave one of those games out.

      • MagcargoMan

        “Just like a lot of people don’t understand why someone would play Smash Bros Melee when you can play Smash 4 which has the most characters, the most stages, the most music selections, the best graphics, etc.”
        There’s a difference between sequels and updated versions.

        • Radish

          Sure, but my point still stands. Despite having more characters and more stages, Street Fighter fans may prefer earlier versions for particular reasons. As for Smash Bros, the core game hasn’t changed since the N64 version. It’s still a 2D fighting game. Yet there are still reasons to play an earlier game in the series despite less characters, music, stages, items, lower graphics, etc.

  • Soda Popinski

    Holy hell. Capcom actually doing a mega collection with 12 games in ONE package RIGHT!!??!?!

    -*- pinch me i must be dreaming *-*

  • heavenshitman1

    This is honestly the effort Capcom shoulda started with. What of all the ppl that just bought SF2 on Switch? Might we get a discount on this one?

    If Capcom would just do one off titles like this Collection, and stop repeatedly releasing various iterations of the same classic games time and time again on each of Nintendo’s systems.

    Do that, and Capcom gets my respect and surely overall far better sales from the masses
