Street Fighter II Hits the Online Casino Scene
Who’d have thought a video game from the 90’s would become an online casino sensation decades later, but it has! NetEnt who know a thing or two about thrilling and engaging slots have released yet another branded slot and this time, it’s one designed to take players on a nostalgia trip. Capcom’s Street Fighter franchise has been reinvented for the online casino market and it’s every bit as fun as you’d imagine!
The video game would put you against an opponent in the city streets with an aim to deliver a KO. Thrash your fellow fighter and advance through the levels. The higher your score, the better your opponent becomes. But how can you fight it out via a reel engine? It may not seem possible, but it is and it’s magnificent.
Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot will see players travelling the globe to beat the pulp out of the many different characters. But before all that, you must decide on who will represent you! There are players with options to win often albeit small prizes and characters at the other end of the scale; to win less often but for higher cash prizes.
Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games said on its release: “In developing Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot™ we felt a huge responsibility to ensure our slot game lived up to the iconic 90s original – a videogame which has continued to entertain fans for almost 30 years.
Authenticity was critical factor to the design of this game, from the arcade-inspired art and sounds to the game mechanics, as well as the Beat the Bosses and Car Smashing bonus rounds. We designed the game to fuel players’ nostalgic competitiveness throughout the gameplay. We are immensely proud of the end product and we hope players all over the world appreciate it.”
Let Battle Commence
The 5 reel, 5 row video slot looks identical to that of the iconic video game – no modern touches, just a remarkable throwback to 90’s fun. Your winning combinations will determine how much damage you inflict on your opponent and vice versa. Each battle continues until one fighter runs out of health points, which are shown to the top of the screen. Losing players can win but winning players can take victory in the free spins bonus or the car smash bonus game.
Players who defeat all four of the bosses will be crowned the World Warrior Champion and will receive an additional prize. Who will you choose? Take a look at the characters and their features below.
