The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection saw its release stateside back in May, but unfortunately had its launch in Japan delayed. Last night, Capcom announced that the assortment of 12 classic Street Fighter titles will become available overseas on October 25th, 2018.

Not only will this version of the game that brings legendary entries from the Street Fighter 2 series, Street Fighter 3, and even Street Fighter Alpha back into living rooms be seeing the addition of its Japanese text and versions of the titles, but it'll also come with a couple of awesome collector's editions. One of the extra goodies among those special purchase options is a set of Street Fighter tarot cards that has the fighting game community excited — and rightfully so.

These tarot cards feature different characters across the 30 years of Street Fighter games, each with their own title relative to the character slapped across the front such as "Death" or "The Hermit." What's most interesting about these cards is the fact that one of them prominently features Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition's upcoming DLC character, G.

We still know very little about the mysterious, gold-marked newcomer. However, G's tarot card sees him playing the role of "The Fool."

This might be a hint at what kind of personality we can expect from the president-looking contender. Perhaps he'll err more on the side of a jokester rather than an ultra-serious character like Urien or M. Bison. We recently ran through the various theories about who or what G is in Street Fighter 5, and you can check them out here.

These tarot cards also feature other characters that we haven't seen return in the latest Street Fighter title like Street Fighter Alpha's Rose and Rolento, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike's Elena and Oro, and Street Fighter 4's C. Viper. The initial look at the cards was a small image, but the gallery below is higher-res and will give you a good look at what you can expect.
