It’s an ambitious challenge, but we’re confident that we have a unique experience on our hands—one that will define a brand-new genre in VR and excite fighting game fans around the world.”

A Bit Of A Change

Kluge Interactive is well known in the VR community following the success of their previous game Synth Riders. Available across multiple platforms it is more than just a Beat Saber clone as many would have dismissed it. Synth Riders featured unique mechanics and environments with some giving the player the feeling of flying through a fever dream or music video like those that were popular back in the 80s. With a 9/10 score on Steam, the game stands on its own as a brilliant rhythm game even managing to surpass the more well known Beat Saber. Kluge even managed to put out the PSVR2 update for Synth Riders well before Beat Saber was available.

Kluge will be using their VR expertise to bring a whole new fighting experience to headsets having players battle with the CPU or other players in real-time. While many may say that fighting and dancing are completely different from each other, you only need to speak to the world expert on Hip Hopkido, the original Black Power Ranger to know differently.

Players eager to pick up the game at launch can wishlist on Steam and join the conversation with the Final Fury community on Discord.
