List of games[edit | edit source]
The bundle contains the following games.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
While playing a single-player mode in any of the twelve games, the player can use save states to save and resume at any time. Four of the games (Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Turbo, Alpha 3, and 3rd Strike) support online multiplayer, including ranked matchmaking. Online lobbies can support up to four players and a player can fight against a CPU opponent while waiting for online battles to be ready. The Nintendo Switch version of the game includes an exclusive eight player tournament mode for Super Street Fighter II that can be played locally with four consoles.
Features[edit | edit source]
- Online Play - Available for Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. In addition to Ranked and Casual Matches, up to four players can join a lobby where they can play against the CPU while waiting for their next match. Each of these titles will have their own global leaderboard to ensure bragging rights can be proved.

Development[edit | edit source]
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection was developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Capcom. To provide minimal latency in online play, the development team implemented "rewind" technology and allowed players to adjust their own input latency via an in-game menu.
Capcom announced the collection in December 2017 at the finals of the Capcom Cup Street Fighter tournament. The collection was released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One on 29 May 2018, although it was delayed in Japan to address fan feedback. A digital copy of Ultra Street Fighter IV was included with pre-orders of the PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One versions of the collection.
In Japan the compilation is known as Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection International. In addition to the international version of each game, it also features the Japanese versions.
