As an avowed - - and spectacularly documented - - STREET FIGHTER fan, I want to put it out there that my far-fetched wish was that CAPCOM would celebrate the 25 anniversary of the brand by announcing a new game that’d offer a possible conclusion to the saga. A STREET FIGHER OMEGA, as it were, that offered a hypothetical endpoint.

If Richie’s wish for Toonami’s return can come true, then damn it, why can’t that?

Barring any surprise announcements at E3, it looks like this box set’s going to be the only product offered to commemorate the occasion. Running at around $150 a pop and with Akuma’s infamous sigil marking its case, this September, the box will offer a more-or-less cumulative STREET FIGHTER experience within its tidy confines.

This video breaks it down rather flashily…

…but if it can’t play for you, for whatever reason, here are all the contents.

  • STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN (with all the DLC)
  • SUPER STREET FIGHTER IV ARCADE EDITION (with all the DLC)
  • STREET FIGHTER III: THIRD STRIKE ONLINE EDITION
  • SUPER STREET FIGHTER II TURBO HD REMIX
  • STREET FIGHTER: THE ANIMATED SERIES
  • STREET FIGHTER II: THE ANIMATED MOVIE
  • STREET FIGHTER IV: THE TIES THAT BIND
  • "I Am Street Fighter" retrospective documentary
  • 8-inch tall light-up Ryu statue
  • 11-disc STREET FIGHTER soundtrack set
  • 64-page coffee table artbook

And then Ryu’s black belt and a certificate of authenticity to make you feel like a man.

There’s a puzzling lack of anything STREET FIGHTER ALPHA-related here, but I find it more amusing that there’s nothing pertaining to the first STREET FIGHTER game. How many multi-million dollar franchises have ever started with a game so terrible, nobody even wants to play it for nostalgia’s sake?

with all the DLC? Trying to figure out if it's cheaper just to buy AE and all the DLC costumes on it's own, cuz that's really all I care about and don't want to give capcom any more money.

edit: yup I logged into psn and checked today and if I bought AE, and all the costume packs it'd come out to just under $60. Still not sure if I want to play fighting games anymore, but I'll keep this in mind.

The connection to anime is a bit tenuous, but it is made in Japan, they are 'animated' sprites, and there are numerous manga and anime based on the games. This box set even has some of the animated movies. Yeah,....it's fine.

You know, I always wanted to get into fighter games, but if you aren't really bad ass you are just going to get WORKED. That or have friends you can play with who are of equal enough skill. I'm loving UNCHARTED 3's multiplayer. You don't have to be super skilled to have fun, and the co-op is awesome.

@FoxxFireArt: If you want to start playing fighting games play Tekken and Soul Calibur 1st, they are much better games IMO. The creators dont try to cheat you out of your money like capcom do.

@jnw93:

It has less to do with money and more to do with community. There aren't enough people in my friends list to play these games with. Fighters are all about the winning, but UC3 has a lot of objective based stuff that's a lot of fun.

Also, the few times I've rented fighters, the people are much cruder. Too much racism and use of the word "rape" for my liking. I was interested in MARVEL vs. CAPCOM 3 until I heard Jill valentine could only be bought separately.

@FoxxFireArt: Yes the community can be a bad online but the pro side to it is alot less aggressive than most games and people seem to get along. But the online community seems to be as bad as COD when it comes to respect lol.

y'know, how about they include... Street Fighter 1, maybe something from the EX or Alpha series?

In case nobody else has figured it out yet, I'm pretty sure the reason there are only certain games in this set is because they are the games that have already been released on current gen consoles. It's just a big box set of all the stuff already out there.

Still, looks like a nice set. 11-disc soundtrack set? Duuuuuude.

I would have been very tempted to get this, if it had all the Alpha games or  especially Alpha 3. The Ties that Bind movie is weak they should have put the Juri movie in there it is far better.

At only $150 I guess they couldn't include every Street Fighter. I think it would have been cool to seem some like $500 ultimate edition that was literally every SF game to be on a console, even Puzzle Fighter and X-Men vs Street Fighter.

@FoxxFireArt: You can find plenty of new people playing SF4 who would match your skill level. I play that all the time and the community is pretty decent. Maybe out of every 50 or some wins I get an upset PM but like 99% of the time it's just play a match then move on to the next one with no communication.

@AURON570: It's definitely cheaper to buy AE with all the DLC than spend $150 on this. You don't really even need the paid DLC as it's just costumes and you can still fight online against people with the costumes even if you don't have them.
