Capcom has just announced the release date for Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection as well as some of the details on bonuses and exclusive game modes. The collection, which bundles together 12 games from the iconic fighting game series, will launch on May 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. Capcom has detailed a Nintendo Switch exclusive feature coming with the collection, a recreation of Super Street Fighter II: The Tournament Battle, a special arcade-only version of Super Street Fighter II that featured the networking of four arcade cabinets and allowed up to eight players to compete in a bracket-based tournament. Using eight controllers and four Nintendo Switch consoles, players can compete in an authentic arcade experience.
There's a bonus available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC owners who pre-order Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, they'll receive Ultra Street Fighter IV for free. Xbox users who pre-order will also receive Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, playable via backward compatibility. There are no pre-order bonuses associated with Nintendo Switch, although the release of this on Switch with an exclusive mode fits what Capcom had previously promised with more Nintendo Switch support.
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection contains 12 iconic titles in the series, each with their own distinct place in Street Fighter history. Four of these titles will include online play as noted below:
- Street Fighter
- Street Fighter II
