This video alone has me pumped!
Wow…talk about the mother of all video game collector’s sets! As many of you know, the Street Fighter series has played a huge part in my life, for it was Capcom’s baby that helped propel me for what will soon be my own 25th year of training in various martial arts. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the success of this epic franchise than with something of this stature. From making fighting games cool in the first place to lighting arcades on fire, from creating millions of fans who brought the action home on their Super Nintendo to once again being the leader of fighting games with Street Fighter IV…this is one series that has played a very important role in the history of the video game industry.
That’s me on the right in Street Fighter IV, celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary.
Pre-orders are available for this awesome package beginning today and you could place yours at Shop.Capcom.com. So far, the planned consoles to be receiving this include both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Will Capcom give Nintendo some love with a Wii U version for the system’s launch? No word on that yet, but one could only assume that it’s possible…given the two company’s history together.
Thank you, Capcom! And congratulations! Now then, when can we expect Street Fighter V!?
