Them’s Fightin’ Herds is probably your new favourite fighting game of 2018. Inspired by My Little Pony, the game’s cartoonish and furry aesthetics are too cute to resist, which spells trouble for our wallets. Instead of the usual two-legged affairs, we will be fighting as a cuddly four-legged animal!
According to the game’s Steam page, here are some of the Them’s Fightin’ Herds’ features:
Unique Overworld Story Mode: Explore the world of Foenum and uncover secrets, costumes and special fights in an unprecedented RPG-style story mode! Speak to NPC's! Solve puzzles using your characters' unique ability! Eat apples!
Visual Pixel Lobby: Online multiplayer lobby system uses the same style of overworld as Story Mode to allow all players to explore (read: goof around in) locations within the world of Foenum with other players. Customize your avatar with cosmetic items you collect through Story Mode AND Multiplayer PVP/PVE gameplay!
Dynamic Music System: Rockin’ character themes that adapt in the heat of the battle makes every fight a treat to the players AND the spectators.
GGPO powered netplay for the smoothest possible fighting game experience.
More fighters are on the way, introducing more playstyles to the roster! Each fighter DLC release will include additional unlockable cosmetics, modes and character specific story mode expansions.
4-button Fighting: A-Light, B-Medium, C-Heavy, D-Magic.
Magic System: Emphasize your character’s special abilities through a dedicated button and a unique resource.
Juggle Decay: Opponents become gradually heavier during a combo, but ONLY after the juggle decay bar is filled. This manages combo length without imposing a hard limit. In addition, filling the juggle decay bar prevents standing infinites by removing the opponent's ability to remain standing for the rest of that combo.
Enhanced Super Attack: Spend an additional meter to add utility to your main super attack with effects that stay true to the characters’ unique personalities and talents!
According to the game’s trailer, the title’s release date is on 22nd February, later this month!
So, does Them’s Fightin’ Herds ignite your interest or you’re too busy squealing?
