Majesco, Micropose and Kung Fu Factory announced yesterday that they will be releasing a downloadable all-girl fighting game for both Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this coming spring. According to the official press release, the aptly titled Girl Fight promises “… hair flying, long legs kicking and the ear-piercing shrill of deadly vixens.”
Although, generally the story in fighting games is often secondary to the actual fighting, Girl Fight does include a backstory that seems vaguely reminiscent of director Zack Snyder’s 2011 film Sucker Punch. It involves a shadowy organization that collects female fighters from around the world and plugs them into a virtual world where they must fight their way back to reality.
The official list of features includes:
- Fighting Styles and Character Options: Players can select from a wide range of distinct fighters, each with their own fighting style. Players can even create their own experience by customizing their fighter’s appearance and abilities.
- Unlockables and Customization: Players will find a robust set of unlockables to further customize their characters by proving themselves as the ultimate femme fatale in the ring. Points can unlock new character skins, more varied abilities and codex entries.
- Arenas: Girl Fight takes the players all across a virtual globe in many different arenas, filled in by augmented reality constructs. From war-ravaged San Francisco to the rubble of demolished Foundry buildings, reality and fiction blur in the virtual arenas.
Girl Fight is being produced by Micropose, developed by Kung Fu Factory and published by Majesco. Its being rated “M” for Mature. For more info (and some suggestive concept art), check out the official Facebook page.
