Last chance: one of the best Street Fighter games is free right now
Street Fighter 2 - The World Warrior can be yours to keep on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and Steam
Capcom’s classic Street Fighter 2 is free to download right now on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. But the offer ends today at midnight.
You can snag the legendary fighting game if you download it before July 21, 11:59 pm, otherwise, you’ll need to pay $1.99.
Street Fighter 2 is free on every platform available, so you can save $7.96 in total if you’d like to own it on everything. And let’s be honest, why wouldn’t you?
While there have been many releases of Street Fighter 2 over the years, this version is part of Capcom Arcade Stadium, a best-of compilation that celebrates the Japanese publisher’s 30-year history.
The novel thing about Capcom Arcade Stadium is that you can choose which classic games you want to play. You can either purchase three different packs with 10 titles, a bundle that includes all 30 games, or purchase specific games separately.
Along with a cool arcade cabinet view, the games included in Capcom’s compilation include an Invincibility mode and a set of wallpapers for use in-game.
Every download of Capcom Arcade Stadium also comes with 1943 - The Battle of Midway for free, so you’ll technically get two games if you download Street Fighter 2 for free.
If you harbor even a little bit of nostalgia for either title, this is a heck of a deal.
