Supplier to further expand its branded portfolio with the addition of the classic videogame collaboration

One of the best-selling arcade games of all time will be transformed for slot entertainment as NetEnt is set to launch Street Fighter™ II: The World Warrior Slot.

The new addition to the supplier’s branded games hall of fame will feature the iconic eight selectable characters – Ryu, Ken, E. Honda, Guile, Chun-Li, Blanka, Zangief and Dhalsim – as well as boss fights with Balrog, Vega, Sagat and the truly evil M. Bison.  Street Fighter II’s genre-defining graphics, soundtrack and animations, as well as its gameplay, will be reflected as true to the brand and the original game as possible.

Created by Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, Street Fighter II: The World Warrior immediately captivated audiences across the globe and shot to record-breaking success when it launched in 1991, spawning multiple sequels and movies.

As the first one-on-one fighting game to give players choice from a variety of characters with unique fighting styles, it was the introduction of special move combinations that defined the game’s quintessential gameplay.

“The release of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior took the arcade world by storm in the early nineties and today it is widely considered as the ultimate classic video game that continues to entertain fans almost 30 years later,” says Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.

“At NetEnt, we strive to deliver content that – much like Street Fighter – raises the bar in what is possible in gaming and we are immensely proud to be working with such an iconic franchise especially something in tune with the retro trends right now.  It is a dream come true to work on brands like these. Street Fighter II really allows us to bring something new and innovative to the market that no one else can.”


Street Fighter™ II: The World Warrior Slot will be released on the 21st of May 2020.

Swintt, the Malta-based game provider with tailored content for key markets, has rolled out the latest game in their Swintt Lite series, Golden 888.

With a classic slot theme and nostalgic graphics, Golden 888 brings the land-based casino of yesteryear to the online sphere and features either 3x or 9x multipliers on winning combinations with one or two Wild symbols.

Golden 888 marks the latest in the Swintt Lite series of games developed by the company. Lite games are built lightly in file size to load quickly and use fewer data in markets with slower internet speeds, or older devices. Lite games also have less complexity and simpler bonus features for less experienced and emerging audiences around the world, such as African markets or parts of Latin America.

David Mann, Business Development Director at Swintt said of the new release: “Golden 888 is a straight-forward classic style slot, designed with certain audiences in mind. Many of our partners are looking to expand their slot portfolio with a variety of games and this provides for players who like a retro style.”

“We’re thrilled to expand our Swintt Lite series with this game as well and make sure we cater for any operators entering emerging markets. Swintt Lite works well alongside our other localized content, including the land-based games in our portfolio.”

The release of Golden 888 is part of a successful run for Swintt, with the recent launch of the hotly received Everlasting Spins, as well as strong new partnerships announced with the likes of Condor Gaming and SoftSwiss.
