Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is coming on May 29, 2018 to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam!

The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection contains 12 titles that have each shaped the history of the Street Fighter series by introducing new concepts, gameplay features, and characters. In terms of release date, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike launched way back in 1999 before it was followed by the series’ triumphant return with Street Fighter IV. This is where the pre-order bonus steps in with Street Fighter IV, which revitalized the series with its release and continued the legacy into the millennium! When you pre-order the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam, you’ll receive Ultra Street Fighter IV to complete the series!

Each platform’s pre-order bonus has its own redemption instructions, so make sure you read carefully.

PlayStation 4 – Pre-order the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection on PlayStation 4 to receive Ultra Street Fighter IV, the final updated version of the original Street Fighter IV. If you pre-order the physical copy, you’ll receive the game as a digital code on the receipt in North America. For European physical pre-orders, please check with participating retailers for details. If you pre-order the digital copy, you’ll receive the code one to two weeks after May 29.

Xbox One – Pre-order the physical or digital copy to receive two separate codes: one for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and the other for Ultra Street Fighter IV, which is playable due to backwards compatibility. The codes will be on the receipt during in-store pickup of the physical copy in North America. For European physical pre-orders, please check with participating retailers for details. For digital pre-orders, codes will be delivered to the Message Center 7-10 days after launch.

Steam – Pre-order on Steam to receive a digital copy of Ultra Street Fighter IV! The game will automatically appear in your library on launch day, the same time the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection appears.

Nintendo Switch – While there is no pre-order bonus for the Nintendo Switch, it is also the only system that will contain Super Street Fighter II: The Tournament Battle, which allows up to eight players to partake in a local ranked tournament together. More information on this exclusive below!

The Nintendo Switch version of the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will contain an exclusive 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 local wireless play, you will need four Nintendo Switch systems and eight controllers to start a tournament, which is perfect for a group gathering! In cases where you don’t have eight players, the CPU will take control of the remaining spots to give you the same tournament experience. Once each match begins, the winner and loser will be placed in their respective brackets, followed by a short period of time where players will switch “seats” to face their next opponent in the tournament bracket. This process will continue until a champion is crowned!

Super Street Fighter II: The Tournament Battle takes advantage of the Nintendo Switch, which allows players to bring their systems anywhere and play together.
