NetEnt has released a slot version of the iconic Street Fighter franchise by Capcom, the studio’s latest branded-slot game.
NetEnt Releases the Slot Version of Street Fighter
The timeless arcade game that has spawned various iterations, Street Fighter by Capcom, now has an online casino slot version developed by NetEnt. The announcement came today, May 21, with NetEnt blasting a press release that Street Fighter II: The World Warrior will now be available across its network of partners.
The game is an online slot that features eight playable characters ready to fight, no doubt a gesture towards true SF fans. NetEnt’s remake of best-selling fighter game for arcade features a 5-reel and 5-row cluster pays mechanic. The character chosen by the player will face an opponent, with only the reel separating them. By playing, the reels decide which fighter is the match winner.
NetEnt Director of Games, Bryan Upton commented on the exciting news: “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.”
Upton continued by saying that upon developing the slot version of the game, authenticity was a major factor. He further noted that the game borrowed readily from the arcade version in both the art and sound department, as well as the bosses and car smashing levels which, Upton clarified, were a really important contribution to the authentic look of the game. Upton concluded by saying that NetEnt were “immensely proud” of the game and expressed hope that players around the world will also like it.
Insight on NetEnt’s New Addition
In NetEnt’s Street Fighter slot game, the characters, which the player can choose from, interact with the reels depending on their abilities. In other words, the choice of character can influence your experience, tapping into abilities that allow you to win more often or win higher prizes. The fighting moves themselves feather the original mechanics of the Street Fighter title. Each player has a health bar and the winning combinations determine the damage which is given or received. In addition, players have a “wild gauge” which, once filled up, releases a character unique “Wild Combo”.
The battle continues until one of the players has no more health points. If the player loses, a special bonus game is activated – Car Smash Bonus Game. Smashing a virtual car will grant cash to the player. On the other hand, the players that wins the game, gains access to a multi-level Beat the Bosses Free Spins.
Those players can fight recognizable game bosses while at the same time enjoying a multiplier at every level. World Warrior Champion title is given for players who can successfully defeat all of the four bosses. Extra prizes are granted as well.
