A Street Fighter reference in Hearthstone? One of the newest cards yells out one of Guile's trademark moves as it attacks

Not too long ago, Team 5 of Activision Blizzard released a new expansion for Hearthstone. The expansion is called Journey to Un'goro.


Among the cards released, there is a card called the Stormwatcher. Whenever you click the card in preparation for attacking, the card's dialogue is very interesting to those of us familiar with the Street Fighter series.

You can hear the card shout "sonic boom" as it attacks. If Guile were a minion in Hearthstone, he would be this minion.

...Too bad the minion isn't exactly competitively stated for constructed play in today's meta.
