This is pitched as “a faithful port of the original game,” which had been developed for the Atomiswave arcade platform way back in 2005. With a cast of characters who are armed with “wild, flashy techniques,” the game’s visuals are powered by its Smooth Model Animation system which had allowed for “exceptionally gorgeous 2D sprite animation on a per-limb basis.”
It makes a return with new enhancements and features, which have been squarely “aimed at hardcore fighting game fans.” Now with a widescreen, 16:9 presentation to modernise the game’s graphics and animation, you will be able to hone your skill in the new Practice Mode before competing against rivals from around the world in online PvP battles which are confirmed to be powered by rollback netcode.
There will also be a new Gallery mode, letting fans pore over character art, music, behind-the-scenes production materials and more.
The Rumble Fish 2 will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 8th December 2022.
