Street Fighter II Is Getting A Special Re-Release On The SNES

Capcom and iam8bit are celebrating Street Fighter’s 30th anniversary with a special limited-edition re-release of Street Fighter II on the SNES. The re-release will ship in late November, but you will have to be fast in buying one. Only 5,500 units will be available worldwide.  The official page for the re-release has more information on its contents, and it is also where you can buy it. Here’s what they say:

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).

  1. Very cool. I wish SEGA would re-release limited runs of some of their rarer disc-based games. They could easily charge $80 for official re-prints of Panzer Dragoon Saga, etc. There is a strong, though admittedly small, market for such things.
