Remember Lethal League, the insane single-projectile fighter that made a splash in grand finals of Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament 9’s mystery game tournament? Well, after seeing the title on display in a competitive environment, developer Reptile Games decided to expand on the basic premise of their flash project and recently began work on a stand-alone version.
This upgraded title will feature new characters, stages, gameplay modes, and more. A message detailing their plans has been included below.
Team Reptile will be making the a full stand-alone game out of the popular Lethal League flash game. The game will feature more stages, multiple characters and special abilities that expand on the addictive basics of the projectile fighting game.
Lethal League first gained notoriety when it was featured as the grand final ‘Mystery Game’ on UFGT9. It quickly became clear that the extreme nature of the game, mixed with the stylized street visuals and chip-hop music hit a sweet spot with the crowd. And now, we’re very excited to be bringing the full fledged experience.
The new features also include local and online multiplayer for up to four players, gamepad support, lots of boomboxes and multiple game modes. Our first target platform is PC and the plan is to bring it to home consoles as well. When it will arrive and on which consoles, is something we will be announcing later on in development.
As of this writing, only a couple of screenshots have been released for this new project, but more information and media will be released through Reptile Games’ new blog over the course of development.
For now, feel free to check out images they’ve provided of Lethal League’s four-player mode and a new character named Switch (both of which are still works in progress) as well as footage of its appearance in the UFGT9 mystery tournament grand finals courtesy of Level|Up Series.
