First footage of Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection shown, described by Capcom as 'arcade-perfect conversions'

In depth menus, 'museums,' online play... this looks to be a one stop shop for the classic Street Fighter experience

A recent episode of PlayStation Underground features Capcom representatives showcasing upcoming Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection.

The Anniversary Collection features no less than 12 Street Fighter titles including Street Fighter (1987); five iterations of Street Fighter 2, including The World Warrior (1991), Champion Edition (1992), Turbo: Hyper Fighting (1992), Super (1993), and Super Turbo (1994); three iterations of Street Fighter Alpha, including Alpha (1995), Alpha 2 (1996), and Alpha 3 (1998); and three iterations of Street Fighter 3, including New Generation (1997), 2nd Impact (1997), and 3rd Strike (1999).

This is the second time (the first being the announcement trailer at Capcom Cup) that we've seen SFAC, and the first time we're seeing the game actually played.

The representatives note the Anniversary Collection as "arcade-perfect conversions," a note that's very important especially to the competitive Street Fighter crowd. They also highlight the game's easily navigable menus, pointing out the extra care to details that add up to make for that full and nostalgic Street Fighter experience.

With the touch of one button you can access game by game breakdowns for each and every title (quick examples below). Said breakdowns detail everything from the historical reception to the specs and hardware used.

The community will be able to get their hands on SFAC at Final Round this weekend as it's slated to be available there. The collection is scheduled to launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows and Xbox One in May 2018.
