Capcom is re-releasing the Super NES version of Street Fighter 2 in November to celebrate the franchise’s 30th anniversary. The “brand-new, freshly manufactured limited edition” of the fighting game will be limited to a print run of 5,500 copies.

The re-release of Street Fighter 2 will come in a new box with a tri-fold design with “glistening foil sheen, delicately embossed texture, chic spot varnish,” according to iam8bit, which is currently taking pre-orders for the cartridge. The package will also include a restored version of Street Fighter 2’s original instruction booklet and secret “retro pack-in surprises.”

Street Fighter 2’s SNES re-release will come in two colors: 4,550 copies will be printed in red, designed to match Ryu’s headband; and 1,000 copies printed in translucent, glow-in-the-dark “Blanka green.” iam8bit says that those colors will be distributed randomly.

Capcom and iam8bit are charging $100 for the SNES cartridge, which is expected to start shipping sometime in late November 2017. Check out some shots of the packaging in the gallery below.
