SKULLCANDY CELEBRATES STREET FIGHTER 35th ANNIVERSARY WITH LIMITED-EDITION COLLABORATION
Skullcandy, the #1 selling brand in Stereo Headphones1 and True Wireless Earbuds2 under $100, announced today a collaboration with Street Fighter, one of the world’s most iconic and best-selling gaming franchises. The Skullcandy x Street Fighter PLYR Multi-Platform Wireless Gaming Headset celebrates Street Fighter’s 35th anniversary by blending state-of-the-art audio technology with the signature stylings of fan-favourite Street Fighter II. The limited-edition drop is available for preorder at skullcandy.com.au, for $249.95.
“For many gamers, there are few franchises more iconic than global powerhouse Street Fighter,” said Derek Steiner, Director of Global Partnerships at Skullcandy. “In honour of the game’s 35th anniversary, we re-designed our all-new flagship PLYR headset to ooze Street Fighter nostalgia. This exclusive drop gives gamers premium features and the immersive sound you can only get from Skullcandy — now, in signature Street Fighter style.”
The limited-edition Skullcandy x Street Fighter PLYR headset is loaded with nods to the classic game. The stand-up arcade cabinet’s unforgettable grey and black pebble texture is a clear staple, while custom ear cup illustrations are brought to life with a lenticular effect, resulting in low-tech, high-impact “motion graphics.” Every detail — right down to the headband fasteners modelled after the original arcade action buttons — was considered.
