Capcom has teamed up with iam8bit to create an “ultra premium throwback relic” for Street Fighter’s 30th anniversary. Together, they will be releasing a special, limited edition reprint of Street Fighter II for the SNES. The Street Fighter II 30th Anniversary Edition cartridge will be limited to only 5,500 units worldwide and will release in November later this year. To preorder a copy yourself, you can visit iam8bit’s website.
Here’s a little bit more about the reprint, as well as a list of features.
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).
