As we talked about the other day, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is seeing release in Japan as Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection International. All seemed well and good, until Japanese fans read some fine print for the game.
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection International content is "based on the overseas versions, the titles, voicing, and text will be in English.” On top of that, the Street Fighter Alpha series, known as the Street Fighter Zero in Japan, is using English names/titles.
These decisions have made Japanese fans extremely angry, with many taking to social media to voice concerns. Among those upset with the decision is Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya. He said on Twitter that Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection's Japanese release was lazy, and nothing but a quick cash grab by Capcom.
