Over the weekend at New York Comic-Con, legendary Street Fighter X Tekken producer Yoshinori Ono revealed the Street Fighter X Tekken Special Edition and this one looks to be a must-have collectible for the collection.
Included in the Street Fighter X Tekken Special Edition:
- Street Fighter X Tekken game
- Build-It-Yourself Arcade Cabinet Bank (approximately 5” H)
- Exclusive Prequel Comic Book by UDON
- 36 Gems: Includes All Pre-Order Packs Plus An Exclusive Pack
- Pre-Order Bonus: Nine Exclusive Gems Only Available For Pre-Ordering Special Edition
- Total of 45 Gems When You Pre-Order
The arcade cabinet isn’t playable and looks to be just a piggy bank for storing all those loose coins that you haven’t shoveled into real arcade machines just yet. It isn’t revealed what the cabinet is made out of either. Plywood? Cardboard? Who knows.
In case you were wondering, the gems described in the contents aren’t actual real gems. The gems are part of an all-new customization power-up system that allows for modification of character abilities and stats. Check out the latest trailer from NYCC below:
