Vita Fighters’ latest update will introduce two new characters to the fighting game | Articles


Vita Fighters is a one-on-one cell fighting game that was created by solo developer AngryDevs. It launched for Android earlier this yr and will be heading for iOS earlier than the finish of the yr. It appears to mix blocky trying characters with anime trappings. 

Previously there have been 15 totally different playable characters in the game however the latest update will introduce two extra. They are known as Lazarus and Ares and each will convey their very own moveset and playstyle to the world of Vita Fighters.

Vita Fighters began life as a fan-made endeavour that all the time aimed to preserve the expectations of fighting game followers in thoughts. The developer wished the game to supply the versatility present in fighting video games even on a cell platform.

To do that, they made the controls quite simple. All strikes will be carried out with a single button or a mix of two. That does not imply it is a slower-paced game, nevertheless, as you’ll be able to see by testing the embedded trailer above.

Vita Fighters is pleased to pay homage to fighting video games from throughout the total historical past of the style too, with every of the game’s playable characters being based mostly on recognisable archetypes. Beyond that, the 9 stage backgrounds you may battle in entrance of are affected by pop-culture references.

Discussing their work on the game AngryDevs stated: “As a fighting game player myself, I have a hard time looking for good mobile fighting games without swiping or cooldown mechanics.”

“I really wanted to create a game where players can just look at the characters and somehow build an idea of how the characters play, where they will still be able to do what they can do in other fighting games albeit on a simple mobile platform.”

Vita Fighters is offered now over on Google Play and will be heading for the App Store quickly. It is a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
