If you’re in Las Vegas and at Evo 2017, you have the opportunity to play the in-development indie fighter Punch Planet. Sector-K Games is (wisely) using Evo as the launch pad for their latest character, the Amazonian Princess Tyara. For those of us that can’t make it to the floor, though, they’ve put together this teaser to show us what we’re missing:
Tyara is a (giant) Amazonian Warrior fitting the role of the game’s grappler. Her brutal moves, comically lackadaisical prance, teleporting weapons and retro sci-fi design make her stand out positively in a game already noted for its unique visual flair.
Looking at her from a gameplay standpoint, she boasts some great looking long range normals, a jumping air grab, charging shield bash, charged armor moves, and a signature command grab. Using the game’s cancel system allows her to cancel the command grab’s last hit and tag on a stylish elbow drop on the fallen opponent. Overall, she seems like a great spin on the grappler archetype.
