Update: The Kickstarter campaign for Street Fighter: The Miniatures game is now live and contains additional information and videos about how the game is played and what is included

Board games and card games based around video game properties are nothing new, but they seem to be picking up steam over the past few years through the help of Kickstarter with some gems like Dark Souls: The Board Game.

Joe Vargas, aka AngryJoe, recently revealed his plans in full for releasing Street Fighters: The Miniatures Game built around the Street Fighter characters and setting along with outlining future endeavors for Mortal Kombat and Dragon Ball Z.

In his announcement video you can see after the jump, he states that he has been hard at work researching, designing, testing and balancing the game and feels it is finally ready to launch on Kickstarter on April 4, 2018.

Joe says to make the best game possible and keep it affordable for buyers, he is using Kickstarter to cut out the middle man and hopes to sell 10,000 copies of the game before adding in stretch goals for more characters.

The base game will feature six Street Fighter 2 character figurines that appear to be a bit larger than Nintendo's amiibos: Ryu, Chun-Li, Ken, Sagat, Vega and Zangief. A boss expansion will also be available and come with Akuma and M. Bison. Each character also has a battle deck of 40 cards tailored to each character to string together combos plus bonus decks for boss versions of characters.

$80 will net you the base miniatures game on Kickstarter while backers who spend $120 will receive the base game, the boss expansion and stretch goal characters. $280 gets you everything listed before plus character expansions for Street Fighter Alpha, 3, 4 and 5.

The game also features maps based on stages from the Street Fighter games that have "3D and interactable terrain." Miniatures offers gameplay styles for two to six players including 1v1, team battles and a free for all mode.

Joe has also prototyped miniature game versions using Mortal Kombat and Dragon Ball Z characters that can be seen in the video below. He states that the games will feature the same rule sets so characters and maps can be used across games against other fighters.
