Fighting games have always been an interesting genre. We see a lot of variety come from the basic mechanics of 2 characters just beating the crap out of each other. There’s your flashy intense anime based sprite fighters like Guilty Gear and Marvel vs Capcom. We have the awesome over the top 3D battles of games like Dead or Alive and Soul Calibur. And of course the darker and more violent fighters like Mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct. But what if we had a fighter that mixed fast paced and fun gameplay with some of the insane ultra violence of its counterparts? Well you’d probably end of with something like GUTS.
GUTS, from Flux Game Studio, pits fighters in a one on one battle to the death. And they don’t mean players are limited by a timer or power bar, the fighters will go until they physically cannot move anymore! Players will have to fight and dismember their opponents with a huge variety of special moves and environmental hazards. But of course losing a limb doesn’t mean the fight is over because players will be able to battle on even if they lose all their limbs thanks to the wacky and inventive move sets.
The game is only showcasing a couple of characters at the moment, but they are saying they will have a full roster of colorful over the top characters to pick from all with their own unique skill sets, styles, and attitude.
