Jasco Games has created a Kickstarter Campaign for Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game, based on the immensely popular video game series. This new 2-6 player, card driven fighting game features a slew of beautiful pre-painted miniatures, in a new larger “collector’s scale”, ranging from 65-85mm on a 58mm base. This size will become Jasco’s standard for their new line of games using Street Fighter’s Universal Tactics System. The game itself is card driven, with each fighter having it’s own deck of action cards. Players draw 2 cards on their turn, move on the board up to their movement value, then take 2 actions. Actions are simple and include move, draw, or play a card. Defense choices are simplified as well: players either block or counter-attack, using battle dice to determine their results. As players roll dice and play cards, a power meter accumulates allowing those super and ultra combos that made the original video game so popular. Street Fighter: The Miniature Game will include at least 6 fighters in the core box (more are coming through stretch goals), 4 detailed square-grid maps, impressive 3D terrain, player boards and nearly 500 cards. A Boss Expansion includes components needed to fight M. Bison and Akuma. Add-On buys are available for 16 more fighters from Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter V, Street Fighter Alpha and Street Fighter III 3rd Strike.
The Kickstarter Campaign for Street Fighter continues through May 4, and delivery is expected in March 2019.
