Street Fighter V and Shadowverse Collab Announced
Japanese Developer ‘Cygames’ has announced that its collectible card game, Shadowverse, will feature a collaboration with Street Fighter 5 soon.
In an unlikely crossover, Shadowverse classes will be associated with various fighters from the game, and will feature seven characters, plus various skins and card sleeves.
Shadowverse is currently free to play, yet the announcement suggests that additional purchases may be required if the details change. This is probably great for both parties – because the genres are so separate there is no chance of it hurting the respective brands if it goes south, and the only likely outcome is raising the profile of both games, something that Capcom will be definitely wanting after the lukewarm response and sales of Street Fighter V.
