Video game developer Real Art recently unveiled a brand new combat game that features a couple of history's most iconic figures. Titled 'War of Currents,' this arcade-style game sees two American inventors going head to head.

Starring animated versions of famed scientists Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, 'War of Currents' is a Street Fighter-themed video game that sees Tesla and Edison battling one another. While most Street Fighter games see characters unleashing special kick flips and death-inducing holds, 'War of Currents' is a little more electrifying. Each character is granted a special charge move which includes an actual electric shock coming from the conductive joysticks.

Anyone willing to play this history-honoring combat game can find it in the ProtoBuild Bar in Dayton, Ohio.
