A Single Strike
A great fighting game often comes with some form of risk and reward. Players need to be intuned with the movements of the characters. They need to know when to attack and when to defend. Most importantly, they need to know when they can bring the finishing blow. Bevel Bakery and Abiding Bridge are aiming to capture the most intensity they can in their upcoming 2D fighting game, Sclash. Debuting at EVO on August 4th and 5th, the game tests player reflexes and mettle as they engage in 1v1 samurai battles with hand-drawn animation. Of course, a new trailer gives players a perfect look at the action they can expect.
Sclash invites players to become samurai. In brutal 1v1 battles everything from speed to ingenuity, and reflexes will be tested. The kicker is that, just like reality, a single blow can end everything. Importantly, this means that every move players make matters. Yet, they will have a selection of five characters to learn, each with an individual style. Learning the movements of not only the characters, but your opponent will seemingly play a major role in the game’s core gameplay loop.
Of course, players will be able to unlock over fifty alternate skins for their characters, as they battle across sixteen different stages. Interestingly, each samurai is hand-drawn while the stages themselves are hand-painted. Players can check out the art style and gameplay for Sclash in the new trailer for the game. View the trailer below.
Sclash is debuting at EVO on August 4th which coincides with its PC release. Furthermore, the game will be arriving on Xbox, Switch, and PlayStation consoles later this year. Currently, the game is available to wish list on Steam.
