Have you ever thought that Street Fighter could use more dice rolling and tiny, amiibo-esque miniatures? Well, good news! Your prayers have been answered in the form of a Kickstarter for a Street Fighter board game called Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game.

The Kickstarter is brought to us by Jasco Games, who you may recognize as a company creating board games for famous franchises like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cowboy Beebop, Mega Man and Dragonball Z. The project is set with an all-or-nothing deadline of May 5, 2018 with an estimated release of March 2019.

That all-or-nothing deadline isn’t really a problem, though, as the Kickstarter has already reached its goal of $400,000 and still has 26 days to go. In fact, as of the writing of this article, the board game has received $719,307 in pledges–nearly double its intended goal. Don’t worry, though–there’s still plenty of stretch goals planned for the Kickstarter, including adding a Dhalsim miniature and 40-card battle deck at $800,000.

The game itself is for two to six players and features a variety of “modes”, including Versus, Free for All, Team and Boss Modes. Stage maps, “Collector-Sized” miniatures and 40-card character battle decks are included in the game. So far, miniatures for Ryu, Chun-Li, Ken, Zangief, Sagat, Vega, Akuma, M. Bison, Guile, Blanka and E. Honda are available via the base game, stretch goals and expansion packs, along with a variety of battle decks and environments for versatile play. There’s also a number of expansion packs planned, including ones for Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V.

If you’re interested in Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game, there’s plenty of time to pledge to the kickstarter or order your own copy. You can check out the kickstarter here.
