I remember when my friend first brought Street Fighter II over to my house. ... He whupped my butt all day, every day, from then on, whenever we played it. Suffice to say, I'm not good at fighting games. However, I am good at card games, and would usually beat him when we'd play those. So, now I might have a chance with Ultra Deluxe 2D Arcade Mega Fighter, a new card game that emulates old fighting games. It's available now.
From the announcement:
WizKids is thrilled to announce that Ultra Deluxe 2D Arcade Mega Fighter, a new game inspired by classic arcade fighting games, is available now at North American Game Stores!
In this two player dueling card game, players will create their ultimate team for a 3-on-3 tag team battle by drafting from a pool of 15 fighters, each with their own unique abilities and evocative pixel art. Characters like Sharkfist, Tyranosorcerer, or Amoeba Bandita can all be drafted to create the most epic team of all time!
After drafting their Fighters, players will have 3 actions per turn, selected from 5 options: Start Combo, String Combo, Taunt, Swap Fighters, or Draw. Players can choose any combination of actions and my perform them in any order, with the only exception being String Combo, which cannot be performed unless Start Combo has already been performed earlier that turn. Each Fighter has a unique set of 3 Attacks and 2 Special Abilities, giving each team of fighters a unique synergy allowing them to more effectively K.O. their opponent’s team. Once a player has K.O.’d all 3 of their opponent’s Fighters, they win!
