New info:

  • Roster will consist of 8 fighters.
  • They're customizable with 8 "psi-amp abilities" to fit the player's playstyle.
  • Game's been in development for only 6 months; started as a passion project.
  • In-game economy by the name of "Combits" (?) which are gained every time the player executes moves successfully. These points are used to buy extra abilities, "bio entries for the girls that really flesh out their stories", skins/costumes and artwork.
  • Online system called the "Wager System" that gives players random challenges before a match (such as win a round only using throws) that rewards players who complete them with Combits.
  • Game's coming in late spring to XBLA and PSN for under $20.
  • All women have special psionic abilities.

Game looks pretty bland. I liked the "Choose your X-Men power to fight" thing, but i dunno. Maybe i will buy it, Rumble Roses gave me a hell of a good time with some friends and i can see this being pretty similar.

I hear if you push up, down, up, down, left, right, a+start all the female fighters get naked.

...come on you know something fucking dumb like that will be in this game! Did you see the box art!?!?!?

So, this looks pretty terrible. I love how the man in the video seemed so enthusiastic about the quality of the product.

Huh, I had no idea this existed until now. It's a fighting game, who's schtick is that it's all girls? The comparisons to Skullgirls must be everywhere, eh? I'll keep an eye on this, but the video didn't really leave any impression on me.

I'm in. All the customization with the abilities sounds cool. Shame the online community will most likely be non-existent but for under $20 I could get a week or two out of it. I'll have to keep an eye on this. Lets just hope there is a decent amount of single player content and no shitty online achievements even though I KNOW there will be..... *sigh*

Game should have been out by now. Obviously an indication of development trouble, so probably a delay. Or a cancellation.

Aw man, I saw the title and I thought this was a video game based on that indie film with Michelle Rodriguez had her first starring role in, Girlfight.

What are you talking about? All I see in relation to the game's release date is that it's supposed to come out sometime this year.

And you know? I've seen worse. Like, a lot worse.

Keep in mind this is from the studio that brought you that Bellator MMA game that hit XBLA last week.

How does this company keep getting to make fighting games? Like, over and over? When they are mostly not very good?

I liked the initial art, mainly because I'm a sucker for cool/moody concept art. Yeah.

This game holds no appeal to me at all, but I just wanted to say that, when I lay awake in bed at night, embraced by the darkness, I like to Imagine Babyz.

Awwwww yeah.

Then it is almost a guarantee that this game will have the deepest grapple mechanics in fighting game history.

Their games might not be good, but to the right people, they might be "good enough."

But then again, who knows? Girl Fight might surprise people and blow everyone's faces off with how awesome it is. I mean, the studio that is Netherrealm was once responsible for Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. Ugh.

We can't really say until we get our hands on it. I have to know how it feels. I just like hitting shit. As long as the hit detection isn't broken, it could be cool.

I'm the one who changed the release date to 2012 after it missed its previously announced Q2 date. That's what I'm talking about.

So what you're saying is that it didn't have a solid release date to begin with beyond "Q2." That's not exactly indicative of a massive problems or a cancellation.

...yeah...I'm all for titties and ass (or T&A as you youngins say these days), but this just looks 'ugh.' Say what you will about DOA, but those games have always had good fighting first and the T&A was just the icing on the cake so to speak.

I don't recall saying that there was a massive problem. What I did say was that since the game was slated for a Q2 release and it obviously missed that date, it has either been delayed OR cancelled. A delay is obviously not something a company plans for from the outset, hence it obviously means that there's been some problem in development, minor or otherwise.
