Update on ‘Street Fighter IV’ premiums for U.S.

Gaming PlayStation 3 Xbox 360
Street Fighter IV by Capcom

Earlier this week I showed you the Street Fighter IV Collectors Edition that will hit Europe and Australia.

Today, Wired has details on the North American edition that we’ll see Feb. 17 in the States for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Included with the premium edition is the game itself, a promotional disc including a 65-minute anime movie, a CD soundtrack, a collectible figurine of new combatant C. Viper, the Prima Games hint book and 5 additional downloadable costumes.

Additionally, those that pre-order the game will receive a headband reminiscent of the iconic red cloth strip worn by Street Fighter protagonist Ryu.

The Collector’s Edition hits store shelves alongside the regular edition of Street Fighter IV on February 17. While the standard version will retail for $60, the CE will set gamers back $80.

Gamers Down Under and across the pond, in comparison, will get pretty much the same stuff, but it will be housed in a classic Street Fighter scene outer case — no mention of that packaging for the North American version so far, but they’ll need something to hold all this stuff:

  • Limited edition figurines of all-time favourite character Ryu and the all new character Crimson Viper, positioned within the familiar settings of a crowded Chinese downtown.
  • A bonus disc containing a feature-length HD-quality anime movie, created specially for the launch of Street Fighter IV and accompanied by a selection of game trailers.
  • A mini-strategy guide created in the style of a comic book detailing the moves and biographies of four of the new characters to the series: Viper, Abel, El Fuerte and Rufus.
  • Exclusive downloadable game content.

So, to summarize: It looks like all we’ll be missing out on for sure is the Ryu figurine — but pre-orderers will instead get his red headband.
