The $100 package will include a working SNES cartridge that plays Street Fighter II and will come in one of two colors: “Opaque Ryu Red” or “Translucent Glow-in-the-Dark Blanka Green.” It will be a limited edition of 5,500, and the glow-in-the-dark copies will number just 1,000 of those—and be randomly distributed.
