I have said it before, and I will say it again: Japan always gets the best gaming “goodies” with their game releases. The release of the home version of Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition
appears to be no different. Andriasang
has outed the exclusive bonus available to everyone who buys SSF4:AE in Japan: special edition playing cards.
This special set of cards, pictured below along with a slew of new screenshots, will be included with all retail copies of the game. The cards are all themed in the vain of Street Fighter and contain quick reference guides of all the special moves and super / ultra combos for the games 39 playable characters. I would love to get my hands on one of these decks, just to see them stacked on top of my desk (I love this sort of stuff).
It remains to be seen what, if any, bonuses Capcom will be including in the game for its North American release.
