ARIKA will soon release its new fighting game, Fighting EX Layer, on PS4 and is looking into bringing it to the PC via Steam. As the team announced, it has begun research on making a Steam version, however this version won’t be released anytime soon.
As ARIKA stated:
“We have begun research on making a Steam version, but no matter how fast I think we won’t be able to do anything until at least September. It takes at least 2 months to develop if we focus all our energy, then an additional month for Quality Assurance.”
Fighting EX Layer is a 3D fighter with 2D fighting game mechanics and like ARIKA’s previous fighting games, it will feature signature elements such as Super Cancels, Running, and Side Stepping. Super Cancels happen when a character transitions from one Super Move to another. The game will also allow players to hit their opponents with Ground Chain Combos that can be performed by hitting the Light, Medium, and Heavy attack buttons in quick succession.
Basically, think of Fighting EX Layer as the spiritual successor to Street Fighter EX2.
