Video game enthusiasts who wander around YouTube often have heard the name of "Angry Joe", who makes videos on games and movies with his own opinion and he is pretty famous. What you may not know that this guy is also responsible for a brand-new board game Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game on Kickstarter right now. Joe is the creator and co-designer of this project which he showcased earlier on his channel.

This ambitious project was launched on Kickstarter with a $400,000 funding goal and already surpassed the initial goal. Officially the board game is licensed by Capcom and it's almost near completion with miniature samples available for display. So basically, if you take part by pledging a certain amount of money, you are just pre-ordering the game. Even if you are a Street Fighter fan, we would recommend you read the rulebook manual first.

Concept for Street Fighter board game was first came to light in one of Joe's videos back in November 29, 2015. He just teased the fans saying that it would be a mash up of Dragon Ball Z, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter series of fighting games. He talked about developing a rule set called Universal Tactics System for the project and shared plans to take it to Kickstarter for funding. Since we are seeing only Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game to be made, there will possibly be more.

Your selected classic Street Fighter characters will fight on large, expansive maps against single opponents or teams, which is the best part. There is a boss fight mode that allows three of World Warriors to go together up against Akuma and Bison. Movements are played out strategically by cards and dice on a grid-based map. Considering everything we mentioned and didn't, it seem like a perfect time for this board game to come out soon as Street Fighter series reached the 30th anniversary milestone.

Although many might think that Street Fighter probably isn't quite a fit for a board game but this project looks fascinating and it's already happening. Lastly, even if you do not enjoy board games in general and would likely to never play with the set, the miniature figures are worth collecting as they are no less than any action figures already available on market.
