On February 28, a new addition to the Street Fighter franchise is set to release for mobile gamers. Unlike previous titles in the series, Street Fighter: Duel is a mobile RPG.
Interested gamers can currently pre-register for the game via the official website, with different reward tiers unlocking as the registration milestones are met. To take advantage of these rewards, it may be beneficial to sign up early.
The gameplay in Street Fighter: Duel seems to be more laid-back and casual compared to the traditional games. Players can recruit a variety of familiar characters, train them, and strategically position them to best utilize their skills and abilities. The characters fight as part of a team, with the front row serving as tanks who can absorb more hits than the characters in the back.
Street Fighter: Duel includes both autoplay and PVE campaigns, as well as PVP matches where players can test their teams against others.
Crunchyroll Games, the company behind the game, is primarily known for anime streaming. However, they have previously developed games with anime themes, including Eminence In Shadow: Master Of Garden and Bloodline: The Last Royal Vampire.
The Street Fighter series has been one of the most successful game franchises of all time, and is widely recognized as the king of beat-em-up games. Since the first game was released in arcades in 1987, it has set the standard for fighting games.
Street Fighter: Duel represents a departure from the series’ usual formula, but it may be just what gamers need to satisfy their nostalgia from time to time.
