Well, this is a crossover that no-one was really expecting. As part of a partnership between Cygames and Capcom, seven characters from Street Fighter V will be appearing as special guest Leaders in the digital card game, Shadowverse. Shadowverse has earned a huge following in Japan, with it starting to put a decent dent in Western markets, and almost into rival games like Hearthstone. Why Street Fighter has been decided as a worthy crossover for a medieval fantasy card game, take your best guess!

The seven guest Leaders will be:

  • Cammy (Forestcraft)
  • Chun-Li (Swordcraft)
  • Juri (Runecraft)
  • Ryu (Dragoncraft)
  • M. Bison (Shadowcraft)
  • Vega (Bloodcraft)
  • Karin (Havencraft)

While Shadowverse is free to play, Cygames has stated that this Street Fighter V related content may require additional in-game purchases, so you may have to pop down some actual money if you want to play cards as Chun-Li. This SFV collaboration is set to launch sometime in Spring, so check regularly on the Shadowverse website for launch details. I wonder if we’ll see Daigo dipping his toe into the world of CCGs, now he can play as his beloved Ryu.
