developer Ninja Theory
revealed its latest project this morning, an iOS and Android free-to-play brawler called Fightback
. The game is being published by EA subsidiary Chillingo, which says it has a "a striking 80s action movie vibe."
Going by this screenshot, Fightback
is a skils-orientated, side-scrolling beat-em-up. The meter at the bottom indicates a three-star score based on points accumulated by skill moves like 'Skull Splitter' - think Bulletstorm
, perhaps, but with more punches and kicks, and maybe a Blood Dragon
vibe. It looks like you can use guns too, though. Also, is that a Japanese love hotel?
"Mobile and tablet gaming is a phenomenon that we just couldn't ignore as a studio and we're very proud to be working with one of the industry's heavy-weights on bringing Fightback
to market," said Ninja Theory Product Manager Dominic Matthews. "Ninja Theory has always strived for the highest production values and that absolutely remains the case in this exciting new space."
Chillingo is showing off Fightback
at E3 next month, and expects to launch it this summer.
