A quirky arena fighter that’s full of creativity and spunk

Looks like Black Salt Coreuption isn’t alone on its journey to rewrite expectations for arena fighters! Mighty Fight Federation was announced this weekend and debuted at the Media Indie Showcase at Evo 2019. This four-player battler “focuses on fundamentals and expansive character abilities.”

Mighty Fight features what the developers call, “Hype mechanics”. These can be used to zone, evade, counter, and play mind games with your opponent. The game will include a story mode, arcade mode, and character specific tutorials for all 11 zany characters.

The roster plans to offer a ton of variety, especially for an arena fighter. “Place traps, throw explosive projectiles and charge in with rush-down combos.” There’s someone here for everyone!

Those who love to listen to gaming music on the regular, like myself, will be glad to hear that Mighty Fight will be home to some incredible sounding tunes. Music by Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania), James Landino (RWBY, No Straight Roads), Vince DiCola (Rocky IV, Transformers) and Manami Matsumae (Mega Man, Shovel Knight) will all be found in the game. If that’s not an all-star composer lineup, I don’t know what is!

The game is being developed by Komi Games, a Toronto based studio, and they’ve got a Discord set up for prospective players to keep up with MFF’s updates! The game is projected to hit early access in Q4 of 2019 and on all platforms in 2020.

Julian Spillane, the founder of Komi Games, wants those that think arena fighters are only made for casual play to give the genre another chance.

“We think arena fighters have the potential to be as deep and competitive as their 2D counterparts, so with Mighty Fight we set out to make something that would evoke the classic games of the early 2000s but with an added sense of depth and complexity,” says Spillane.

“As die-hard fighting fans ourselves, we’re building the game that we want to play and we can’t wait to see how the community responds!”
