Injustice 2 (XONE)
Fighting 16 May 2017
A sequel to the 2013 arcade fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us by NetherRealm Studios, known for the latest Mortal Kombat games. Like in its predecessor, in Injustice 2 you play as the characters from the DC universe, fighting each other in violent duels. The game features minimal plot, in which Batman and his supporters try to rebuild the society, but at the same time have to fight against Superman and his allies. Among the chaos, a new danger appears, threatening to wipe out all of humanity. Mechanics-wise, Injustice 2 is a spectacular Mortal Kombat-like 2.5D fighting game, although it's not as violent. You can play as either a hero or a villain; available characters include Superman, the Flash, Batman, Supergirl, Aquaman, Atrocitus and Gorilla Grodd. The sequel also allows for modifying your chosen character. During the gameplay, you earn new equipment, which can alter not only your character's appearance, but also their abilities.
Tekken 7 (XONE)
Fighting Friday, 02 June 2017
The seventh major installment in one of the most famous fighting game series developed by Bandai Namco Entertainment, which originally launched back in 1994 on the first PlayStation. The debut of the franchise on the eight generation consoles brings back all the key elements of the previous installments, i.e. dynamic duels on 3D arenas featuring interactive objects. The story revolves around the King of Iron Fist tournament, organized by a powerful corporation. The new game also presents a cast of well-known characters with their unique special attacks. Additionally, there's no shortage of playable characters, who appear in the series for the first time. In contrast with the previous games, powered by a proprietary game engine, Tekken 7 is based on Unreal Engine 4, offering high-quality graphics even on less powerful platforms.
Mortal Kombat XL (XONE)
Fighting 01 March 2016
An expanded edition of Mortal Kombat X by NetherRealm, released in April 2015 as the tenth installment in the cult fighting game series which was launched back in 1992 on arcade machines. The action takes place 25 years after the events of the original game and tells a completely new story, in which new characters, for example: Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade’s daughter, play a major role. The gameplay mechanics were not changed significantly – it is still a 2.5D fighting game that puts emphasis on special attacks and spectacular finishers. Mortal Kombat XL contains all DLCs released as a part of the original game's season pass. Apart from a large variety of various skins for the available warriors, their biggest attraction are bonus playable fighters such as the four-armed Goro, Tremor, Tanya Tri-Borg, Bo’ Rai Cho, as well as iconic movie characters like Predator, Xenomorph, Jason Voorhees, or Leatherface.
Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 (XONE)
Fighting 25 October 2016
Another installment in the 3D fighting game series by Bandai Namco Entertainment, based on the extremely popular manga by Akira Toriyama. Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 utilizes the same formulas as its predecessor by combining the elements of all the series of the DB anime (Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super), as well as those from the movies. The game features a multitude of familiar characters and an option to create your own custom character; you can choose their gender, appearance and powers. Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 focuses on battles taking place in 3D arenas, during which you use a range of unique attacks and powers derived from the original manga and anime series. The game utilizes the cel-shading technology, just like its first installment, and features the original anime voice actors, but thanks to the capabilities of the new generation devices, the visual and sound layer are much better.
Mortal Kombat X (XONE)
Fighting 14 April 2015
A sequel to the 2011 game created by NetherRealm, which restored the leading position in gaming to Mortal Kombat, a long-standing, cult fighting game franchise launched in 1993 by the Midway / Acclaim duet. Once again, we get a wide array of playable fighters – both known from the previous games in the series, as well as brand new ones. Moreover, each one comes in several varieties, differing in tactics and combat style. Duels are fought on 2.5D arenas filled with interactive elements that you can use in combat. There is of course no shortage of spectacular finishers, so-called fatalities. The game’s core features an expansive story mode set 25 years after the events presented in the previous game. The authors implemented numerous both local and online multiplayer modes, enabling the players to compete with one another in a global struggle for primacy.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (XONE)
Fighting 04 February 2016
The fourth major installment in a popular fighting game series set in the famous ninja universe of Naruto. This game series has been developed since 2008 by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Storywise, the game is a direct sequel to the previous installments in the series, focusing on the latest chapters of the manga. In the story mode you explore the game’s world, meet the characters from the anime and manga and take part in spectacular duels focusing on unique special abilities of each hero. The other game mode is the fighting mode, in which you participate in duels on dedicated arenas. For the first time in the series, the game features QTE in some of the attacks. Moreover, lots of changes were introduced when it comes to combat mechanics and damage system. As this is the first game in the series to be released on the eight generation consoles, the visuals have seen a significant upgrade. Created with cel-shading technique, the artwork closely resembles the anime.
Killer Instinct (XONE)
Fighting 22 November 2013
The third installment in the series of fighting games started in the nineties. The game was developed by Double Helix Games, creators of Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters and MX vs. ATV Reflex. In Killer Instinct the player assumes the role of a warrior of his choosing and fights against computer opponents or human rivals (cross-platform playing is supported). Among the characters one can find many interesting individuals – including ones well known from previous entries in the series (for example Thunder, Jago, Sabrewulf and Glacius). Each character has unique abilities and combat tactics. The rivals are facing each other on two-dimensional arenas with hand-drawn backgrounds. The battles itself are arcade and very dynamic – the players can perform many attack combinations, blocks, and special attacks. Rich social features are an interesting addition. Killer Instinct offers 2,5D graphics and uses cel-shading technology thanks to which the characters and locations have a comic book-like look.
Dragon Ball: Xenoverse (XONE)
Fighting 05 February 2015
Another installment in the best-selling fighting games series set in the universe of the popular manga by Akira Toriyama and anime TV series. The production was developed by the experienced Dimps studio, which already has in its portfolio several parts of the game, released for both home and handheld consoles. This installment of Dragon Ball focuses on presenting the most important and most spectacular duels in the history of the series, with the participation of Son Goku and the main villains: Vegeta, Nappa, Freezer, Cell, and Buu. In order to refresh the formula of the cycle, the creators introduced a new structure of the world, a futuristic city and new, mysterious characters. The graphics of the game employ the cel-shading technology, which gives it a distinctive comic style. Dragon Ball: Xenoverse marks the debut of the series on eighth-generation consoles, which obviously has influenced the visual experience.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 - Road to Boruto (XONE)
Fighting 03 February 2017
A content-rich expansion for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, a fourth entry in the series developed by Cyberconnect 2. The plot of the expansion, called Road to Boruto, goes beyond the original manga and animated series, drawing from side entries such as Boruto: Naruto the Movie, a full-length animated movie, and the comic series Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. As a result, we can relive the events that took place after the conclusion of the Naruto Shippuden series, and take control of completely new characters, which are a part of the next generation of ninja warriors (many of them are the children of the well-known heroes). The expansion doesn’t change the game mechanics in any way, focusing on introducing a new storyline and previously unknown characters such as titular Boruto (son of Naruto) or Sarada (daughter of Sasuke and Sakura). Aside from that, the Hidden Leaf Village received new locations to explore.
One Piece: Burning Blood (XONE)
Fighting 21 April 2016
Another installment in the popular 3D fighting game series based on the best-selling Japanese comic books created by Eiichiro Oda. The title was co-developed by Namco Bandai Games and Spike Chunsoft studio – the creators of Danganronpa and the Conception series. The plot is not very sophisticated as it serves only as a pretext for the most famous One Piece fighters to engage in duels. The game includes all of the important characters from the original manga. What differentiates this title from series like Tekken is the fact that in One Piece: Burning Blood you can control a team of three fighters that can be switched during battles any time you want. Each character has its own set of moves as well as special attacks, called Logia Moves. The key to success is the correct choice of team members, creating a versatile mix of offensive and defensive abilities.
Dead or Alive 5 Last Round (XONE)
Fighting 20 February 2015
The most complete edition of the fifth installment in the cult fighting game series Dead or Alive. The first version of this game was released in 2012 on seventh generation consoles. The game was developed by studio Team Ninja which also created some entries in the Ninja Gaiden series. A characteristic trait of Dead or Alive games are the dynamic battles with an option to capture enemy attacks directed at different body parts. The duels take place across the whole world on multi-level arenas filled with destructible objects. The warriors have more than 300 sets of clothing and accessories to unlock so that the player can customize their characters as he wants. The Last Round edition contains all previously available game modes and a full set of DLCs released after the debut of the original game. The PC and eight-generation consoles versions of the game have better special effects and 1080p resolution support.
Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn (XONE)
A reboot of a classic 1994 fighting game whose main protagonist is a former NBA player, Shaquille O'Neal. The new version was created by Big Deez Productions and contrary to the original game (which had as many supporters as it had opponents back in the 90s), Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is a modern-day fighting game, which combines elements of such classics as Streets of Rage or Street Fighter with features of 3D action games, such as Devil May Cry. Again, the player assumes the role of a muscular basketballer who traverses diverse locations and fights various enemies, as well as powerful bosses. In combat, Shaq makes use of a set of techniques, punches, combos and power-ups. What is also helpful in eliminating the opponents, is the presence of destructible environments and different weapons. As the game progresses, the protagonist develops their skills in order to face more and more powerful enemies, and eventually, the mysterious Black Star Ninja.
Dead Island Retro Revenge (XONE)
Fighting 31 May 2016
An oldschool side-scroll 2D beat 'em up game, created by Empty Clip as extra content for everyone, who purchased Dead Island Definitive Collection including the remastered editions of Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide by Techland. Dead Island Retro Revenge faithfully recreates the classic arcade beat 'em up spirit, popular from the early 90s. During the game, you keep going right, facing waves of enemies, consisting mostly of various kinds of bloodthirsty zombies, just like in the original production. Dead Island Retro Revenge features colorful, although very oldschool visuals, and the game's screen is stylized to resemble a pixelated arcade screen.
Fighting 16 January 2016
A side-scrolling fighting game by Rimlight Studios, a team consisting of developers with experience in both mobile games and multi-platform AAA productions, designed with a great sense of humor. The action of Zheros is set in a science fiction universe, where we play the part of one of the two superheroes who face a mad scientist called Dr. Vendetta, whose plan involves mutating all living beings and their subjugation to his authority. During the game we traverse fully three-dimensional locations, moving to the right side of the screen – just like in classic beat'em up productions. In combat we take advantage of a rich set of moves and combos, and in the most difficult moments we can rely on powerful robots. In between the missions, we spend the reputation points we gained in-game to improve the skills of our superhero. Game is designed to be played alone or in local co-op.
Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends (XONE)
Fighting 17 November 2015
It is a 3D action-packed brawler with arcade elements, set in the Kung Fu Panda universe depicted in the popular movies and TV series. The players take part in the Legendary Legends Tournament along with the best 20 kung fu warriors (along with four new characters that need to be unlocked). The competition involves three types of various arenas that move, change their shape, and challenge players with various special features.
Fighting 20 September 2016
A 3D fighting game in the vein of Power Stone that is a debut project of the French studio Piranaking. Lastfight is based on a popular comic LASTMAN. In contrast to classic beat‘em ups in which the characters move on two-dimensional stages, Lastfight introduces small 3D arenas. This way, the player can try to get their opponent from behind, or use the elements of the environment – for example, hitting an enemy with an armchair. The combat system is clearly arcade and requires some manual skills to master the combo sequences. In all, the players can choose from a set of ten fighters. Lastfight offers three main gameplay modes: story campaign, and one-on-one or two-on-two duels. Aside from that, a few extra modes have been prepared, including Free for All, where everybody clashes with everybody, Endless, in which the objective is survival with only one health bar, and Pinball, consisting of throwing balls at our enemy. Lastfight employs a lowbrow, comic book-like visual style.
Rivals of Aether (XONE)
Inspired by such titles as Super Smash Bros., an unusual fighting game with platformer elements. The action takes place in Aether, a war-torn fantasy world in which people from various civilizations can manipulate the elements – Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. The heroes we control try to learn about the roots of the endless conflict, which takes loads of fighting. The gameplay of Rivals of Aether, designed by Dan Fornace, comes down to fighting numerous battles on numerous 2D arenas. During combat, you may not only choose from a wide array of strikes and special skills (each character has three of the latter), but also take advantage of the design of the arenas, which are filled with elements such as walls, platforms, branches, or roofs. Apart from the single-player Story Mode, the game also features many more highlights – the Abyss, in which you face waves of enemies (either single or in co-op) or Versus - its variation consisting of competing with friends. Interestingly, you can play 1v1 or 2v2 via the Internet or in the split-screen mode. The title features old-school 2D pixel art visuals.
