The Street Fighter V beta launched over the weekend, giving users their first crack at the game. As that period continues, Capcom has announced that the game will get a Collector's Edition, as well as some retailer-exclusive pre-order costumes.

According to Capcom-Unity, the Street Fighter V Collector's Edition will include the base game, a 10-inch fully-painted Ryu statue, a 48-page hardcover artbook filled with design sketches, Code Cards for additional content, Street Fighter Comics from Udon, a soundtrack sampler, and a two-month subscription to the Capcom Fighters Twitch channel. Capcom also notes that a one-month subscription to the Capcom Fighter Twitch channel will also come standard in all versions of the game. The Collector's Edition is set to run for $99.99.

Also, while Capcom has opted to forego its usual DLC model in exchange for in-game Fight Money, it does appear that pre-order costumes are still on the table and they're retailer-exclusive, at that. Digital pre-orders will get Chun-Li in a black battle dress, Amazon pre-orders will get a black outfit for Bison, Best Buy pre-orders will get mission gear for Cammy, and GameStop pre-orders will get an epic beard Ryu.

The Street Fighter V beta is set to run on PS4 through this Wednesday with the PC beta set to begin at a later date. The game is set to release on both platforms in March 2016.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
