An exact release date has been announced for the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection.

Capcom announced a May release date for its Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, and those who pre-order the game for PC, PS4 or Xbox One will receive a free, digital copy of Ultra Street Fighter 4.

While pre-orders of Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for Switch won’t include Ultra Street Fighter 4, Switch users will instead get something not available on the other platforms.

The Switch edition of the collection will feature an exclusive recreation of Super Street Fighter 2: The Tournament Battle.

This special arcade-only version of Super Street Fighter 2 featured the networking of four arcade cabinets and allowed up to eight players to compete in a bracket-based tournament.

Using local wireless play, four Switch systems and eight controllers will be needed to start a tournament. When eight players aren’t available, the CPU will take control of the remaining spots. Once each match begins, the winner and loser will be placed in their respective brackets, followed by a short period of time where players will switch “seats” to face their next opponent in the tournament bracket.

The process will continue until a champion is crowned.
