The Swedish online casino software developer, NetEnt, has thrilled the industry with the release of its latest branded slot game. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior slot made its debut at NetEnt powered online casinos. The company has managed to transform the excitement of the iconic video game by Capcom to the reels of its new title.
The director of games at NetEnt, Bryan Upton, spoke about the release of the new branded slot.
“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 video game which has continued to entertain fans for almost 30 years,” he said. “Authenticity was critical factor to the design of this game, from the arcade-inspired art and sounds to the game mechanics, as well as the Beat the Bosses and Car Smashing bonus rounds. We designed the game to fuel players’ nostalgic competitiveness throughout the gameplay. We are immensely proud of the end product and we hope players all over the world appreciate it.”
About the New Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot
The new game features a cast of eight original characters. Fans of the video game will instantly recognize them, thus adding even more appeal to NetEnt’s take. The characters are all ready for combat on the 5 reel, 5 row slot with an innovative Cluster Pays feature. The slot emulates the battles of the original video game, where characters are pitted against their opponents.
The battles are played out on the reels of the game until one of the two fighters runs out of health points. Losing players can win some cash in the Car Smash bonus game. However, winning players can unlock the multi-level Beat the Bosses free spin feature. In this free spins round, players take on four bosses, each of which comes with an increasing multiplier. If you manage to defeat all four bosses, you grab the title of World Warrior Champion and walk away with an extra prize.
