It seems that Arika has pulled off the greatest April Fool’s joke of them all–making people think that something is a fake, and then revealing that was real all along.
While the video they released a few hours ago–of a game with Street Fighter EX characters–stated that it was an April Fool’s joke, the game itself is actually real. Arika is currently streaming a preview of the game, featuring GODSGARDEN Pro’s Ryota “Kazunoko” Inoue.
The game itself seems to be cross between Street Fighter EX and Arika’s other fighting game, Fighting Layer, bringing in the walled stages and sidestep mechanic from the latter. Only three characters are selectable so far, Kairi, Hokuro, and Garuda. Check out the livestream below!
