As part of the Nationals weekend, Jasco announced the next license to REjoin UFS. Soul Caliber. No details yet as to when we can expect to see cards with the soul caliber banner, but we did get a sneak peek at some art on the dragon shield sleeves that were given away over the weekend.
SF vs DS
Jasco has updated their site with all of the Uncommons from the upcoming Street Fighter vs Darkstalkers set . You can check those out HERE.
SF vs DS is set to release next month in November. Be sure to get your pre-orders in now.
And I am going to leave this update with that. I know, I know. I didn’t post any videos. This update was long enough with just the Nationals stats, let alone anything else. Check back next week for all of the post nationals reports and video footage. Until then, have fun theory crafting for SF vs DS.
