Konami and Capcom have been bitter rivals since the early days of arcade gaming, with each of them having a vast library of hit games created over the last 40 years. Today, they continue to compete in a new field: digital collectibles on blockchain, aka NFTs.
While Konami has released NFT memorabilia packs to celebrate Castlevania’s 35th Anniversary, Capcom had seemingly decided to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Street Fighter series without digital collectibles… Until now.
Working in tandem with WAX, Capcom is dropping an NFT card collection. The set of 1000 packs will become available for purchase on January 20th, 2022. In order to purchase a pack, which are priced at $100 USD each, users will need to have a WAX Cloud Wallet. As mentioned before, there will only be 1000 packs released containing 10 cards each, with their rarity levels being the following:
- Common A with 32.30% chance
- Common B with 26.60% chance
- Uncommon with 17.10% chance
- Rare A with 10.80% chance
- Rare B 8.64% with chance
- Epic A with 2.40% chance
- Epic B with 1.80% chance
- Legendary with 0.36% chance
For those that collect all of the cards of any specific rarity, a bonus pack will become available, containing one of 11 super-rare cards.
