'Street Fighter II' is getting a gorgeous Super Nintendo re-release for its 30th birthday

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been nearly 30 years since “Street Fighter” first debuted. Though few people now remember the original game, the sequel  — “Street Fighter II: The World Warrior” — is a classic. 

And thus, in celebration of the release of the original game, Capcom is re-releasing “Street Fighter II” (the sequel) on a Super Nintendo cartridge — which you’ll need a Super Nintendo to play.

Street Fighter II (limited edition)Capcom/iam8bitIt’s much more popular than the original ‘Street Fighter,’ in fairness.

The special edition re-release of “Street Fighter II” is limited to a run of 5,500, and red is just one of two colours it’s being offered in.

If you want to get your hands on this puppy, you'll need to first prepare your wallet: The re-release of the Super Nintendo version of 'Street Fighter II' costs a whopping $100.

And no: It doesn't come with the Super Nintendo you see here.

It comes with more than just the cartridge, of course. There's a whole package involved. For instance, the game comes with a 'premium' instruction manual (seen below).


It also comes with a special 'tri-fold' box, seen here. It may look like an original Super Nintendo game box, but don't get it twisted -- this is something entirely different.


Of the 5,500 cartridges being made, 4,500 are of the red variety. An even more limited edition of the cartridge is being slipped at random into boxes: It's transparent.


No matter how much you're willing to pay, there is no way to guarantee a transparent version of the game in your order. As the game's store page says, 'We cannot guarantee which version you will receive. It truly is completely random.'

The special edition re-release of 'Street Fighter II' on Super Nintendo starts shipping in 'late November,' and costs $100.

But you should probably enjoy this classic advertisement for 'Street Fighter II' before you do anything else
