Higround, a peripheral brand dedicated to graphic gaming keyboards, and Street Fighter™, the fighting game franchise that defined the genre, are announcing a collaboration in celebration of the dedication and longevity of the communities surrounding fighting games. This collection will be available for pre-order on Higround’s website on April 19 at 12 PM PT.
This collection is Higround’s first internationally available drop, with products available in Europe and Japan alongside the US.
The collection brings back new iterations of beloved Higround products with two new designs of the Basecamp 65 and two new iterations of the highly sought-after Summit 65—one which will feature worldwide and one launching exclusive to Japan. Featuring artwork from the beloved Street Fighter™ II game, all parts of this collection—from the keycaps and mousepads to the jellybag and apparel—are designed to encapsulate the theme and essence of Street Fighter games spanning over three decades of fighting game history.
The Street Fighter™ x Higround Summit 65, which features its own keycap designs, is Higround’s flagship product. Each previous drop of the Summit 65 has sold out in minutes, and the newest version reflects improved iterations of its predecessors. The keyboard features a full CNC aluminum frame, gasket-mounted design, and returns the world’s first graphic switch to the spotlight. Higround’s Geo-Switch is a linear, pre-lubed model with Higround’s iconic topograph design all around.
This collaboration is a tribute to the fans of Street Fighter™, whose passion for the cutting edge gaming and controls is not unlike the love and dedication shown by keyboard enthusiasts.
“We are proud to partner with CAPCOM to develop this line of premium Street Fighter™ keyboards which pay homage to the cornerstone of gaming culture,” says Higround’s Senior Director of Product, Albert Jin. “As a fan of the franchise, Street Fighter™ epitomizes the excitement of retro arcade gaming, competing with friends, and enjoying the feeling of victory.”
The Street Fighter™ x Higround collection will be available for a week of pre-order from April 19 through 24 beginning at 12 PM PT, 9 PM CET, and (April 20-25) 4 AM JST. For more information and to purchase the product, head to Higround.
