The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will be releasing on May 29, 2018. This collection comes with a number of fan favorite Street Fighter titles.

Earlier this year, there were some concerns that the games would not have a training mode. Luckily, James Chen was able to confirm that the games in this collection would be packaged with training and versus modes, and now we have an official announcement from Capcom Unity.

This collection comes with Street Fighter, Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 2: Championship Edition, Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter 2, Super Street Fighter 2: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Street Fighter 3, Street Fighter 3: Second Impact, and Street Fighter 3: Third Strike.

Only Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter 2: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike will have online play. Not only that, but these games will be the ones that have access to the training mode.

The training mode will offer features that were not available in the original games. These include the ability to "turn on damage display, input display, dummy controls, and more."

Luckily, all twelve games will have a versus mode. You'll need to implement the day one patch in order to gain access to the available versus and training modes.

Apparently it was only due to fan feedback that Capcom has ultimately decided to add these classic features to the collection. The primary focus was originally the arcade modes.

"After the initial announcement, we saw lots of fan feedback hoping for Versus and Training Modes, even if the collection is focused on the arcade versions," stated Capcom in their blog. "It’s because of this feedback that these modes have been added to the game."

Once you select which game you'd like to play local versus mode in, you'll be able to choose the stage to fight on. According to Capcom, they added some "extra flavor" by labeling these stages with the name of the character that originated from it.

"For example, in Street Fighter Alpha 3, the House of Mystery – Palazzo Mistero, Italy is labeled as Rose’s stage."

Once a match concludes, the participating players will have the option to rematch. If a rematch is not selected, then the players will be taken back to the versus screen where they can choose which of the twelve games to play.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on May 29th. Remember that the Nintendo Switch version will also come with the exclusive Super Street Fighter 2: The Tournament Battle.
