Sold in booster packs of five cards each, the 191 collectible cards bring a wealth of bonus in-game features including valuable power ups, collectible art, new cards via the card fusion system, augmented reality characters, plus extra chances to get super rare powers for Heihachi.
Decorated with Heihachi artwork, the booster packs contain five different cards with each card carrying a unique QR code to unlock specific in-game bonuses and power-ups. Scanning character cards using the augmented reality feature of the app lets players superimpose their favourite characters in 3D on the environment around them, with the ability to take photos and share them with friends.
Some cards are easier to find than others, and it will take dedication to collect all 191. Once players have acquired various character cards they can scan the QR code to unlock the card in the game and using the app’s card fusion system, players can also combine two scanned cards to create brand new cards in-game and gain valuable advantages.
In addition, players can collect sets of 9 art cards featuring exclusive designs such as the Japanese woodblock style artwork and the Lili bikini poster. Collectors also have the ability to play a streamlined standalone game with friends using the cards only
