For the real retro enthusiasts, iam8bit has a special treat just for you!
As a special surprise to mark today’s 30th anniversary of the release of the original Street Fighter, iam8bit (online retailer specializing in retro-themed goodies) has announced pre-orders are now open for a limited-edition re-release of the very first home version of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior — the port that many of today’s fighting game fans started out on.
This commemorative cartridge — yes, it’s an actual Super Nintendo Entertainment System game pak — is limited to 5,500 units, packed in a restored luxury foil/embossed box, and will include a variety of extras, including some secret surprises! Additionally, 1000 of the 5,500 cartridges will be a special translucent glow-in-dark “Blanka green,” instead of the standard “Ryu headband red,” determined at random.
Manufacturing provided by Retrotainment Games. You can order this nod to gaming history over at iam8bit right now for $100.00 USD. They are expected to ship in November 2017.
