Street Fighter Chess Set Celebrates Series’ 25th Anniversary

As part of Street Fighter’s 25th anniversary celebration, Capcom are releasing a Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Chess Set. At $300, it’s an expensive piece of memorabilia, and Capcom are only releasing 5,000 pieces of it worldwide.

 

Characters included in the Chess set are: Ryu and M. Bison (kings); Chun-Li and Juri (queens); Ken, Guile, Balrog and Vega (bishops); E. Honda, Blanka, Rolento and Akuma (knights); Dhalsim, Zangief, Sagat and Seth (rooks); and Ryu’s fist and Shadaloo winged skull (pawns).

 

The Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Chess Set will be released next month. It’s available for pre-ordering on Capcom’s online store. You can read more about it on there as well. However, if you’re more interested in celebrating with actual games, there’s the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set, due out in September.

      If I’m paying 300 bucks for a board, I’m displaying it and playing with my 5 dollar KB Toys board :)

    I’ll buy it! I wish the pawns would have been characters as well… Maybe Dan, Sakura, Makoto, Ibuki, Fei Long, C.Viper, Cammy and Rose. Either way I’ll buy it!

    $300 is waaay out of my range, but I really want this. Guess I’ll have to settle for pretending my chess pieces are SF characters lol.
