The first Street Fighter game to be released exclusively on a Sony console, Street Fighter V takes the popular worldwide franchise into the current generation of video game consoles.

Capcom, the creator and developers of the franchise, have provided numerous statements about the different retail releases for the upcoming game. On top of the basic standard edition, which is going for $59.99, Capcom USA has announced what the collector’s edition in North America will have.

The Collector’s Edition in North America comes with a ton of extra items to give the big Street Fighter fans something to be happy about. Retailing at $99, it comes with the game itself, a 10-inch figure of Ryu, the poster boy of the series, a copy of the game’s soundtrack, a copy of an UDON Street Fighter comic book and a 48-page art book that has behind-the-scene character sketches and full color portraits of the game’s roster.
