Fantasy Strike, the fighting game from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix lead designer David Sirlin, is now a free-to-play game on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam for Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.
You can play all characters for FREE in online casual play, online ranked play, offline practice mode, and offline “single match” mode against AI.
All Fantasy Strike players can play online in casual and ranked modes and watch the action in spectator mode. Practice mode, solo matches vs. AI opponents, and the daily challenges are also all available for free.
Those looking for more can purchase the Core Pack, which provides access to local Versus mode, online matches against friends, Boss Rush mode, Survival mode, and an Arcade mode with beautifully-illustrated narrative sequences. Those looking for a lot more can buy the Collector’s Pack, featuring everything in the Core Pack plus a ton of cosmetics, an exclusive “Party Time” KO effect, and one year of the new Fantasy+ subscription.
Fantasy+ is a new optional subscription service that doubles XP gains, grants access to special Master Costumes for each character who reaches experience level 20, and introduces an extensive new Replay Theater feature.
Compensation for previous owners
Previous owners receive access to the Founder’s Pack, which includes everything in the Core Pack plus 60 costume color sets.
The move wasn’t that well received by many game owners, mostly because owning the Core Pack still doesn’t allow one to play with free-to-play friends at this stage.
