Irvine, CA (March 20, 2012)—Following a hugely successful appearance at WonderCon, one of the largest pop culture conventions in the country, Cryptozoic Entertainment™, the premier developer of original and licensed games, and Capcom U.S.A., Inc. today announced a new partnership to create a boxed card game based on several major Capcom®properties, including Street Fighter®, Final Fight®, Rival Schools®and Darkstalkers®. Each brand will be featured in the upcoming deck-building game, combing the action of all four and offering nearly unlimited gaming excitement.
“Capcom is such a powerhouse in the video game world, with great stories and exciting characters, that it just makes sense to expand the universe into a card game, giving fans another way to connect,” said Cory Jones, president and chief creative officer at Cryptozoic. “There’s more than enough material within each brand alone to create a great gaming experience, but Street Fighter, Final Fight, Rival Schools and Darkstalkers all in one game is really just mind-blowingly fun.”
Cryptozoic’s Capcom deck-building game will be complete right out of the box, letting fans play their favorite characters and experience all the action from each Capcom property. With all four of these mega-popular brands in one game, fans will be able to experience the Capcom universe in a way never before possible.
