Eurogamer stepped into the ring and delivered some knockout news: Fantasy Strike, the fighting game from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix lead designer David Sirlin, is now free to play on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam for Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. Author Wesley Yin-Poole runs down what to expect from the new update:
Now, you can download and play Fantasy Strike for free. The free version lets you fight as the entire roster immediately with no grind to unlock. Available modes for free are practice, solo matches versus the AI, online casual and ranked matches, and spectator mode. There are two new characters added alongside the move to free-to-play: Quince, who confuses opponents with illusions, and General Onimaru, a powerful swordsman with an unblockable special attack.
