As far as kick-ass video games are concerned, Street Fighter has, and always will be, at the top the list. Even at its most basic, SF is definitely a forever-favorite, and given the latest announcement regarding Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, that statement has never been more real.
Programmer Abhishek Singh, the same man responsible for the creepy chick crawling out of the TV in The Ring, is bringing his badass AR (augmented reality) skills to Street Fighter. In the video below posted to Twitter, you'll be able to get a glimpse at the newest feature that allows gamers to "fight in real life". Yep, that's right, you can literally take your fighting to the streets. Pretty awesome, huh?
Considering how many episodes of Black Mirror warn against the dangers in AR, we're pretty happy to see that this game isn't too immersive. If anything, it's like a more enticing version of Google street view and hey! There's nothing wrong with that — we don't discriminate when it comes to ignoring real life.
According to Gizmodo Singh built the game using ARKit in unity, allowing gamers to play right off their iPhones. In order to engage in battle, one person has to set up the game on a flat surface. The second user can then join the game. The match begins as soon as both players choose their fighter. Singh explains, "It really is a live multiplayer AR experience, fully functional and playable.”
