Another way for your favorite Street Fighters to battle!

Jasco Games has revealed plans to release a Street Fighter-themed collectible card game, based on their UFS–“Universal Fighting System”–model. This makes the incoming cards playable on their own, or usable to expand upon your existing UFS collection for some weird and wild face-offs. Here’s their announcement trailer:

As can be seen from the video, the game leans heavily into the Street Fighter IV series art aesthetic, with some elements from UDON Entertainment’s work showing through as well. Some further details from Jasco:

The card game will play much like the video game complete with low,
mid and high attacks, so anticipating your opponent with the correct
blocks are crucial. Attacks that deal damage are added to the
characters meter allowing for EX moves later in the match.
While the game can be played on its own, is will also be a part of the
Universal Fighting System (UFS).

UFS has been around for over a decade and is a unique game design that
allows players to fully customize the way they play. Each year the
winners of the UFS World and National Championships win the right to
create their own tournament-legal character card playable in the
game.

Each character has their own card, complete with special abilities,
vitality and most importantly hand size. Unlike other card games,
where you can only draw one card a turn, players will always draw back
up to their character’s hand size, making the game much more fast-paced.
Games on average do not go past the first 4 or 6 turns.

You can check out the UFS Facebook page to see what characters will appear in the game as Jasco reveals them. Currently, 14 out 20 have been revealed as in-game fighters: Ryu, Sagat, Zangief, Akuma, Vega, Dhalsim, M. Bison, T. Hawk, Cammy, Ken, Sakura, Fei Long, Chun-Li, and Guile.

No release date is yet confirmed; keep an eye on Jasco Games and Shoryuken for additional information.
