Greetings HeroClix Fans!
I can still remember the day I walked into the local arcade to see all the other kids huddled around the newest “hot game”. There weren’t a lot of one on one fighting games on the market at the time, and to say we were all instantly hooked would be putting it mildly. It was the summer of 1987 and Street Fighter had come into our lives.
Flash forward close to 25(!) years and that one arcade classic has spawned numerous sequels and spin-offs. As a longtime comic book and video game fan, I didn’t think I could be more excited for a new Street Fighter game! (Boy was I wrong!)
When WizKids announced plans for their very own Street Fighter expansion for the HeroClix brand, all I could say was “Holy COW!” Would I now be able to bring the world of the “Tiger Uppercut!” and “Hadouken” to my HeroClix games? The answer? A resounding “YES!!!”
Set to debut in stores everywhere today, Street Fighter Heroclix is a fully compatible expansion for the Heroclix game and is available as a single figure booster product as well as an accompanying Starter set! Street Fighter will introduce more than 2 dozen figures into the HeroClix universe, each with their own unique dials, dynamic sculpts, and signature moves!
To whet your appetites a little, we’ve included the figures from the Street Fighter HeroClix six-figure starter below for your enjoyment:
Enjoy the Release Day everyone, and may all your “Hadoukens” find their targets!
