Man, it’s a good day today. It’s been a while since the last PC fighting game and although Mortal Kombat is still nowhere to be found, here comes a new challenger. Yatagarasu is a 2D fighting game developed by the people at PDW/Hotapen and is an indie title inspired by the the greatest of all great fighting games, Street Fighter III: Third Strike.
Yatagarasu features eight unique characters, stunning sprite artwork and animation from King of Fighters artist, Kotani Tomoyuki, innovative ‘button locking’ parry system to give you the defensive edge, unique damage mitigation system where tapping the attack buttons to correspond with incoming attacks, limits damage taken, as well as 1-2 players with 8 player lobbies.
Players will also be able to choose their trash talking commentator from top Japanese players, Tokido, Kokujin and KSK – who’ll react to their play style.
Geraint Evans, Director of Rice Digital said:
“We are so pleased that Hotapen have decided to introduce Yatagarasu to a Western audience. It’s a superb 2D fighter and support from the Fighting Game Community for Yatagarasu will ensure we can continue to bring more hidden gems like this to the West. For fans of 2D fighters – Yatagarasu is an experience not to be missed.”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
