The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will only be the Western version; no Japanese translation

'Street Fighter Zero' will be 'Street Fighter Alpha' in all regions

The announcement of the 30th Anniversary Street Fighter Collection was a very hype one. In total, there will be twelve Street Fighter titles that will be packaged together for this collection.

While this all sounds good, there is some bad news for those in the Asia region. The game is still coming out... just not in the way that they might want.

According to Siliconera, there will only be one version of the collection -- the Western version.

As listed on the Japanese Capcom website, "since all titles' contents are based on the overseas versions, the titles, voicing, and text will be in English." The translation of this information was made by Siliconera.

What we know as the Street Fighter Alpha series, for example, is known as the Street Fighter Zero series in Japan. It will be called Street Fighter Alpha in the 30th Anniversary Collection for all regions.

You can probably imagine that there are a number of people that aren't too happy about this. Supposedly, Hideki Kamiya of Platinum Games is calling the move "lazy" and has also labeled it as a "quick cash grab."

It certainly makes sense that nostalgic players would want to play the version that they grew up with. Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
