There are some pretty hardcore Street Fighter fans out in the world who probably purchase any and every copy of a game or anime with the word “Street Fighter” in it regardless of number or edition at the end. Well this news specific news could make them happy and their wallets sad as Capcom has just revealed what may be the biggest Street Fighter collection with the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set.

Now what does this enormous collector’s set give you to be exact? Let’s see, other than the spiffy box, the 25th anniversary set gives you more than 15 discs that contain Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Street Fighter X Tekken, documentary’s on the franchise, two anime movies, the entire Street Fighter animated series, eleven (yes eleven) discs of music, 64-page hardcover art book, a light-up Ryu statue, and last but not least: Ryu’s actual belt.

For those wondering about DLC; Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition will have all the costume DLC and Street Fighter x Tekken will also include all character and Swap Costume DLC.

You can find the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary set at the nearest store near you on September 18th for $150 on Xbox 360 and PS3.

But this set is not all; to continue the celebration of this loved fighting franchise, Capcom also revealed some dates for its 25th Anniversary tournament this year (The Year of the Dragon) which you can find below. This will be a global tournament with over half a million dollars in support and will be the highest the fighting game community has ever seen in terms of money.

Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Tournament Dates

• July 28-29 in Austin, TX
• August 11-12 in the NY area (location pending)
• August 26 in Taipei, Taiwan (location pending)
• Mid-September in the Tokyo Region, Japan (date and location pending)
• September 27-30 in London, England (in conjunction with Eurogamer Expo)
• October 13-14 in Sao Paulo, Brazil (in conjunction with Brazil Game Show)
• October 27-28 in Los Angeles, CA
• October 31 – November 4 in Paris, France (in conjunction with Paris Games Week)
• December 8 Finals in San Francisco, CA

Good luck to all those who enter! Now let’s hope they don’t release a Super Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Arcade Edition version in 5 years. It’s already too many words to say for one franchise.
