Street Fighter IV has been out in Japanese arcades for almost a month now and is headed to the PS3, 360 and PC within the next few months. Street Fighter II is arguably the best fighting game of all time so the fact that Street Fighter IV will be similar in certain ways is very exciting. The fighters and backgrounds are rendered in 3D, while the gameplay is on a traditional 2D plane creating a 2.5D effect. In addition, car-smashing bonus rounds may be back in the console versions of the game.

There is currently a poll on streetfighter.com asking users which collectible they’d like to be given away with the collector’s edition of the game.
