Street Fighter has earned its space amongst some of the most sought-after and beloved NFT series on WAX. Following the epic release of Series 1 collectibles in February of this year, collectors continue to trade, craft, and “level up” in Capcom’s immersive NFT experience.
On July 15, it’s time to suit up and get ready to fight again. The much anticipated Street Fighter V Series 2 collectibles are coming to the WAX Blockchain.
What You Can Collect
Not only do you have a chance of owning one of the very first animated Street Fighter cards in history, you’ll also be able to experience crafting like never before — featuring 4 blood-pumping rarities that can each be “empowered” to unlock additional animation.
Rarities include, but aren’t limited to:
- Ki (Chi)
Plus, class cards take the collection experience to a new level.
What’s even more exciting — for the first time in Street Fighter NFT history, animations have been thrown into the mix in select variations. From powerful blasts to dazzling displays of skillful moves, these cards are sure to be a hit.
Two Pack Sizes
Choose from the Standard Pack (10 NFTs in each pack)for $9.99 and the Ultimate Pack (60 NFTs in each pack) for $49.99.
They both go on sale at 1 pm EST on July 15, 2021, and pack openings follow at 4 pm EST at the following link: https://on.wax.io/street-fighter-s2/
There are only 15,000 Standard Packs and 25,000 Ultimate Packs available, so don’t wait to get in the game. Previous NFT collections have sold out in as little as 35 seconds!
What You Can Do with Your Packs
You have a few options including holding, trading, or opening your packs and jumping into the crafting process.
The power is yours to choose — NFT your way!
“Crafting” Your Collection
Street Fighter V Collection Series 1 features a gamified crafting system that has become wildly popular. Series 2 features a similar system that’s a must-experience for Series 1 collectors and newcomers alike.
When opening your packs, you’ll receive basic Ki cards and an assortment of character build cards. You’ll then have the power to combine them to create entirely new cards.
Ki cards implement a new way of crafting, including:
- Basic (black & white logo)
- Empowered (color logo)
Only Basic Ki NFTs will drop from your packs. One (1) of these, combined with two (2) matching character build cards, will create a power level one (1) final character NFT.
In order to craft an empowered Ki card, two (2) basic Ki cards must be combined. This empowered version, paired with five (5) more matching character build cards, and your power one (1) NFT, will upgrade* your final NFT to a power level five (5).
*Upgrading your NFT will not change its rarity.*
Additionally, when the power five (5) NFT is finalized, collectors will also receive one (1) of three (3) epic class cards:
- Class A — 60% Chance
- Class B — 35% Chance
- Class C — 5% Chance
Class cards, when initially crafted, are also assigned a power level of one (1). In order to upgrade each to a power level five (5), the crafting recipes are as follows:
- Combine 9 Class A (rewards power level 5 Class A)
- Combine 6 Class B (rewards power level 5 Class B)
- Combine 3 Class C (rewards power level 5 Class C)
The following video explains:
Now the Real Challenge…
Two additional character NFT cards, Dan and Rose, are available for collectors to achieve. The catch is that users can only receive these characters via crafting with powered-up class cards.
Dan can be found in 4 unique rarities (Base, Flame, K.O., and Collector’s Edition) by combining one (1) power 5 Class A, one (1) power 5 Class B, and one (1) power 5 Class C card.
Rose will take collectors one step further in difficulty.
Rose not only requires one of each power 5 Class cards from series 2, it also requires one of each rarity from the Series 1 class card collection (Base, Foil, Battle, Weld, and Action). This results in an NFT Cross Series Recipe.
When minted, Rose will have a chance at four unique rarities (Base, Flame, K.O., and Collector’s Edition).
And the Icing on the Cake…
Yes, collectors can upgrade* Dan or Rose power level 1 cards to power level 5 by simply combining two (2) of their matching NFTs (For example: 2 Rose Base cards or 2 Dan K.O. cards).
*Cards are burned, or cease to exist, when applied toward crafting a new or upgraded NFT. This increases card scarcity.*
Earn a Pre-release Promo Pack
Excited to own a piece of Street Fighter V history? We strongly recommend creating a WAX wallet at least one or two days prior to launch to increase your chances of securing your packs.
Also, consider joining us for a “Stress Test” on July 14 at 1 pm EST. You’ll be an important part of helping us hammer out kinks and bugs. In return, WAX will reward you with a free promotional pack as a “Thank You”.
You can then unbox your special edition Stress Test NFT later that day at 4 pm EST.
An Important Note
Remember, as with all launches on WAX, all NFTs are pre-minted. You can open packs and begin crafting at your own pace — the odds of receiving a low mint is not dictated by how quickly you start crafting.
Purchasing NFTs on WAX and its associated marketplaces ensures a green future for the blockchain. Officially certified as carbon-neutral, WAX provides fans with the collectibles they desire, while offering the chance for partners and artists to flourish and supply valuable treasures.
Join WAX and Capcom on July 15 to celebrate the genius of Street Fighter V. We’re expecting some fierce competition and thrilling craft reveals.
Good luck fighters!
