Legacy Fighters IF is a very cool looking Smash Bros-esque platform fighter where cute little versions of beloved fighting game characters duke it out.
Legacy Fighters IF is a spin-off of Legacy Fighters: New Generation – a fan-made Unreal Engine powered 2.5D fighting game that features characters from Street Fighter, Guilty Gear, Dragon Ball, Dead or Alive and many other franchises. The original Legacy Fighters game was built in MUGEN and was well received, and it seems like the dev is bringing the MUGEN spirit to the Unreal Engine powered sequel with its eclectic roster of characters.
The Legacy Fighters IF game looks delightful, with stylish pixel art visuals and a roster of cute looking Pocket Fighters-esque chibi characters. Of course none of the characters are officially licenced and (as in MUGEN game) balancing them may be tricky, but it looks great and it promises tight gameplay and rollback netcode. Sign up for the Alpha for a platform-fighter filled with real fighters (rather than plumbers and princesses).
