According to the announcement, the Street Fighter keyboard collection will include five different designs. Additionally, the collection will include three mousepads, a keycap set, a jelly bag, and a t-shirt. Each of the mousepads will include well-known artwork from the early days of Street Fighter. The mouse pad options include the same Ryu and Chun-Li artwork that appears on one of the keyboards. The other option is Guile's stage from Street Fighter 2, a replica of the “Presented by Capcom” screen that appears after beating SSF2T.
Fans will be able to pre-order the products from Higround's website starting on April 19, 2023, and continuing until April 24. Capcom has yet to reveal the prices for the keyboards. However, fans can expect to pay between $145 and $300, which is the typical pricing for Higround's themed keyboards.
The brand is well-known for producing capsule collections for a variety of anime series. Higround has previously worked with SEGA to produce a collection of products based on the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Higround's site also advises fans to sign up for email reminders about the Street Fighter collection, as demand is expected to be high.
