Street Fighter 2 is free on Steam to celebrate a new collection of Capcom reissues

Before Street Fighter 6, 5, 4, and 3, there was Street Fighter 2. It was an astonishing success on its arcade release in 1991, and is arguably the reason the series still exists today. If you’re not among the millions who played it, here’s some good news: the original arcade version of Street Fighter 2 is free on Steam right now.

It’s part of Capcom Arcade Stadium, which is basically a free container app that lets you buy a variety of Capcom arcade classics in separate themed packs. Normally you only get 1943 -The Battle of Midway for free with it, but if you go to Steam and add this package to your accountyou will get Capcom Arcade Stadium with Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior unlocked for free.

This is timely for two reasons: Street Fighter 6 is coming in 2023, and this week Capcom has detailed it quite extensively, revealing your real-time feedback and open world features, as well as Guile’s hair care routine.

The other reason is that Capcom today announced the full lineup of games for Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium, which will launch on July 22nd. you buy all 32 games as a pack or each part. Here’s the list of games:

  • 1943 Kai – Midway Kaisen –
  • AKA BLOCK BLOCK
  • AKA KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND
  • AKA MAGIC SWORD
  • ALSO THE KING OF DRAGONS
  • AKA VAMPIRE SAVIOR – The Lord of Vampires –

That will arrive a month later Capcom’s Fight Collection and shares some titles with this genre-specific compilation. It’s a confusing way of doing things – why isn’t Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium just another package to the original? even forbidden logic available only to those with business acumen.
