Now I wonder if this is something their legal team put in there to cover their asses for some weird reason (lawyers worried about consumers using old electronics) or if it has actually set consoles that they tested it with on fire. If it's the former that's funny but whatever, if it's the latter then what the actual fuck.

I think it's just sue guard, don't want someone with a roach and roach crap infested system or a chronic smoker wher eit's so bad the inside of the system has bridged points all over with cobwebs of nicotine and filth. They fire it up, a loud pop and flames start to appear with smoke.

I've seen both happen in front of me about 12-14 years ago working on gateway computers in a local country store tech center and it was nasty stuff. The nicotine one was more impressive, the case was off and looked bad but we had to fire it up, and fire it did, many blue arcs of flame and electricity then it flared up. Had to unplug and snuff it out before it spread. That was one angry redneck when they came back being told no warranty, don't be so dirty. We suspected as much as there was spit stains on the front like the dude felt it was a gateway spittoon.

This seems like such an odd decision with that price tag... Is there any kind of demand for a licensed re-issue of SFII on the SNES?

And the red cartridge kind of gives off vibes of being a reproduction.

All in all not a bad conversion but a hellish one with no saving. :(

I don't have an SNES, but I could be interested in re-issues for other consoles if the right titles were made available. Honestly, 5,500 seems like a huge print run to me. Maybe that's me as a collector of esoteric books and vinyl records, but I'm more used to print runs of less than 1,000. Especially if this is in any way ACTUALLY a fire hazard, because WTF is even up with that? And I feel like Street Fighter II isn't a great pick because I assume most Street Fighter fans already own a copy on some console...

I'd like MUSHA for Genesis next. Or maybe something that never got a US release, like Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei for NES. I CAN DREAM!

Hey this came to my attention online that this maybe something a bit more underhanded with the release of this game.

Image from Capcom/iam8bit of the game in the see through shell:

Notice they're identical boards, traces, etchings, cap and chips?


Looks to me they at Capcom either had some old boards lying around or someone sourced out buying a few thousand carts online and they're just re-packaging them and selling that stuff for $100. Pretty sleazy stunt.

You'd almost think that a Chinese manufacturer would still be cheaper?

Maybe but I corrected it on another site but it appears that's upon more closer inspection to be the SFA2 board with the SDD1 on it they used for the sales image. I don't think they'd re-do SF2 to use that chip to make it more like the arcade so it looks to be laziness.
