In celebration of Street Fighter’s 30th anniversary, Capcom and iam8bit are teaming up for an “ultra premium throwback relic”. On the way is an entirely new, limited edition reprint of Street Fighter II for the SNES.
Here’s what you can expect from the package:
Featuring one of two colored cartridges, each housing the original game code and fully playable on NTSC consoles – but that’s just the beginning! The “Legacy Cartridge Collection” embodies retro-inspired luxury, amplifying the core SNES box design with a glistening foil sheen, delicately embossed texture, chic spot varnish and an innovative tri-fold cover that opens to reveal bonus vintage art. Inside, we’re keeping it old-school by restoring the contents of the original instruction booklet, complete with a new archival cover print + secret pack-ins (to be revealed when you crack that shrink-wrap seal).

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 producer says no plans for a Switch version currently
Posted on 2 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 100 Comments | 0 Likes
Capcom brought the original Mega Man Legacy Collection to 3DS. But as things stand now, the sequel won’t be on any platform – be it 3DS or Switch.
Fans have at least been hoping that Capcom would port Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 to Switch. However, in an interview with TechnoBuffalo, producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya directly stated that there are currently no plans.
The only sort of small hint we’ve seen about Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 on a Nintendo platform came about earlier this month. It was discovered that the game’s code contained several references to 3DS. It’s possible that Capcom is thinking about bringing the compilation to Nintendo’s portable, or was considering it at one point before scrapping those plans.
Thanks to Anthony for the tip.
