Street Fighter fans were expecting some sort of major announcement during the Capcom Cup 2017 Finals today (Sunday, December 10, 2017).
As soon as they kicked off, those fans certainly got a bit of a welcome surprise – a massive collection of 12 of Street Fighter’s mainline games is arriving in 2018. What also came as a shock is the fact that this celebratory compilation is coming to the Nintendo Switch. Switch players now have the honor of playing past Street Fighter games along with the console exclusive, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection announcement trailer (which can be viewed above) dropped a ton of details about what’s coming down the pipeline. Online features (Ranked Matches, Casual Matches, Lobbies, and Leaderboards) will be included in the following entries as a part of this collection – Street Fighter 2 Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Street Fighter 3 Third Strike.
Some of the other features that’ll be featured in this collection are an interactive timeline, character bios, character sprite viewers, concept art, a music archive. When playing offline, you’ll even be able to activate save states during your Arcade Mode playthrough. By the way, four players max can occupy the lobbies of the aforementioned games that include online play.
