About UFS: The Universal Fighting System

The ultimate battleground brings the universe's fiercest and most recognizable fighters to the trading card game arena. Players create and develop decks around their favorite character, incorporating signature moves and preparing their strategies to face other players. Every character brings unique abilities and opens up entirely new strategies, allowing for endless replay-ability and strategic thinking. Characters come from Mega Man, King of Fighters, Darkstalkers and Jasco Games' very own Red Horizon property. Past cards include characters from Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Tekken, Samurai Shodown and many more.
