It’s hard to believe that it was 25 years ago when we all first got our hands on Street Fighter, personally I really got into it when Street Fighter II came out and the rage was to do the freeze move and then trying to un-freeze yourself before the dang clock ran out. But I digress. Capcom is celebrating the 25th anniversary by releasing a limited edition chess set that features all the characters from the game. The expected release date is August and if you have an extra $300 to throw around then this can be yours.
