Get your arcade sticks ready, because the Mega Man collections were just the beginning: Capcom will bring Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection onto the Nintendo Switch in May 2018! 

This compilation will contain no less that twelve arcade perfect ports of the series as follows:

  • Street Fighter
  • Street Fighter II
  • Street Fighter II: Champion Edition
  • Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Street Fighter II
  • Super Street Fighter II: Turbo
  • Street Fighter Alpha
  • Street Fighter Alpha 2
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3
  • Street Fighter III
  • Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact
  • Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

Notice that in the case of Street Fighter III this will be the very first time the game will be available on a Nintendo console. Besides the games there will be extras features like concept art and sprite viewers with online play added for the four definitive entries in each of the sub-series (Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike). You can check out the announcement trailer below.

Truly big a step up from Capcom's previous Switch offering. Will you take on the mean streets again next May? On a personal side note, this humble NL retro contributor is really happy to have previously invested on one of these. No way the JoyCon would be able to handle the kind of punishment needed to pull off some of those special moves beyond the Alpha series.
