Fright Fight is finally set to reach the U.S. App Store in the coming weeks, according to its developer. The news comes following the application’s soft launch in several international App Stores towards the end of 2013.
So far, Fright Fight is available free of charge in New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. In an email that reached our inbox earlier today, however, developer APPSolute Games explains that Fright Fight is on course for a U.S. launch “in a few weeks.”
As a reminder, the game allows iDevice users to play as one of several characters, and to do battle against online friends in a multiplayer arena environment. There’s Kahn the Werewolf, Carmilla the Vampire, Grim the Reaper, and Hugo the Yeti; each character comes with its own set of attributes, and more characters are promised in a future release.
Back in October, we got to go hands-on with a prerelease build of Fright Fight, and we definitely enjoyed the experience. Our article explained:
After having gone hands-on with Fright Fight using a prerelease build of the game, we’re impressed.
So far, we’ve had chance to try out the game’s four unnamed characters in one world – Flotsam Islands (pictured below) – but zGames hopes to bring more worlds, and improved character ability.
We’ve said it before, and we’re saying it again: even though the real deal may reach our iDevices sooner than anticipated, Fright Fight could nevertheless be the best Super Smash Bros. alternative for iOS. Below, we’ve included a trailer video of the forthcoming game, as well as an additional in-game screenshot taken from our testing.
We’ll let you know once Fright Fight launches in the U.S. App Store.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS7VrX0FgmU
