View Full Version : Rivals?

Definitely going to be picking up Rivals from the FLGS today or tomorrow. The concept intrigues me. Could this be an ongoing release set? Superman vs. Lex Luthor? Green Lantern vs Sinestro? I also see this as an opportunity to make Street Fighter more of a 1v1 game. You could go with a base set with 2-4 characters, then smallish sets to add characters to the fold (you get Blanka's 3 cards, his ultra, and maybe 10-15 new main deck cards, for example). Could make for some competitive-style tournaments, for those who are interested.

I hope to see more releases like this in the future.

It is likely that they are considering more Rivals sets in the future. I noticed that the set mark on the cards says "Rivals 1", indicating that they are open to the possibility of making more.

It will most likely depend on the sales of this one.

My FLGS hasn't gotten it yet. :( I have a pre-order for it, so I'm garunteed a copy when it arrives, but they said it hasn't even been shipped yet.
