Supplier to further expand its branded portfolio with the addition of the classic videogame collaboration
One of the best-selling arcade games of all time will be transformed for slot entertainment as NetEnt is set to launch Street Fighter™ II: The World Warrior Slot.
The new addition to the supplier’s branded games hall of fame will feature the iconic eight selectable characters – Ryu, Ken, E. Honda, Guile, Chun-Li, Blanka, Zangief and Dhalsim – as well as boss fights with Balrog, Vega, Sagat and the truly evil M. Bison. Street Fighter II’s genre-defining graphics, soundtrack and animations, as well as its gameplay, will be reflected as true to the brand and the original game as possible.
Created by Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, Street Fighter II: The World Warrior immediately captivated audiences across the globe and shot to record-breaking success when it launched in 1991, spawning multiple sequels and movies.
As the first one-on-one fighting game to give players choice from a variety of characters with unique fighting styles, it was the introduction of special move combinations that defined the game’s quintessential gameplay.
“The release of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior took the arcade world by storm in the early nineties and today it is widely considered as the ultimate classic video game that continues to entertain fans almost 30 years later,” says Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
“At NetEnt, we strive to deliver content that – much like Street Fighter – raises the bar in what is possible in gaming and we are immensely proud to be working with such an iconic franchise especially something in tune with the retro trends right now. It is a dream come true to work on brands like these. Street Fighter II really allows us to bring something new and innovative to the market that no one else can.”
Street Fighter™ II: The World Warrior Slot will be released on the 21st of May 2020.
