The hype train is running at full speed for the summer launch of Street Fighter 6. For many, this is one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year. Even the awful misstep of Street Fighter: Duel hasn’t been enough to detract from the hype. It’s no wonder then, that yet another edition of the game is being offered: a Street Fighter 6 steelbook.

The Street Fighter series has sold more than 47 million units since its debut 35 years ago. Street Fighter 6 is the latest iteration and will offer three distinct game modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour and Battle Hub. The game will launch with 18 unique characters on day one. However, it will inevitably receive many more via DLC. Indeed, the Deluxe Edition includes the ‘Year 1 Character Pass’, containing four characters, as part of the package.

Alongside the confirmation of the Street Fighter 6 launch date came news of three separate editions. Standard, the above mentioned Deluxe, and Ultimate. We’re still waiting on Street Fighter 6 Deluxe Ultimate Turbo Hyper* Gold edition. In the meantime this news of a Street Fighter 6 steelbook edition will have to be enough.

Street Fighter 6 Steelbook Pre-Orders

Currently available for pre-order in the UK and North America, we are waiting on confirmation for other territories. However, in both of these regions the steelbook seems to be exclusive to a single retailer.

In the UK, the Street Fighter 6 steelbook is exclusive to GAME. It’s included in the price of a pre-order for the Standard edition. However, you should probably ensure you’ve chosen the steelbook before confirming.

Gamers in North America have to purchase the steelbook separately, priced at $9.99 USD. Links for both are available here:

As you can see at the links above, the art featured on the steelbooks appears to be the same for both territories.
