Limited Edition 'Street Fighter II' Cartridge Might Catch Fire If You Play It

Capcom and iam8bit are celebrating Street Fighter II's 30th birthday with a limited edition Super NES cartridge. Each one comes in one of two available colors: Opaque Ryu or Translucent Glow-in-the-Dark Blanka Green. Oh, and did we mention it could make your SNES catch on fire? That's right. Scroll to the bottom of iam8bit's product page and you'll find this gem of a warning:
