Set your SNES on fire with re-release of Street Fighter II

To mark the series 30th birthday, Capcom and Iam8bit joined forces to re-release Street Fighter II for the Super Nintendo on an actual SNES cartridge.

Only 5500 units will be made, and sold for $100 through Iam8bit's website.

The product page shows a quite concerning warning though:

WARNING: Use of this reproduction game cartridge (the “Product”) on the SNES gaming hardware may cause the SNES console to overheat or catch fire. The SNES hardware is deemed a vintage collectible, so please exercise extreme caution when using the Product and make sure there is fire extinguishment equipment nearby.
