Super Smash Bros. Mod Team Reveals Its Own (Familiar) Fighting Game

Super Smash Bros. Mod Team Reveals Its Own (Familiar) Fighting Game

This begs the question: Why not just play Super Smash Bros. Brawl - the mod that aimed to make the game more like Melee because the competitive community seems to like that game better - has finally been revealed. Eight games will be headlining the event: Tekken 7, Guilty Gear Xrd, King of Fighters XIV, BlazBlue: Central Fiction and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U as an old fan favorite.

The grassroots-driven game studio, which received $6 million dollars in corporate funding earlier this year, revealed a teaser announcement for their long-awaited platform fighting game now known as Icons: Combat Arena.

As fighting game tournament Evo 2017 concluded in Las Vegas, Nevada, the line-up of games was announced for January's inaugural Evo Japan championship series in Tokyo, revealing that Nintendo Switch fighter Arms will be included for the first time. This game won't feature any of the Nintendo characters; instead, it'll be composed entirely of completely original fighters. Melee. This definitely isn't a coincidence considering the game's style as well as the developer's name. Over on the official trailer that was uploaded to Wavedash's YouTube account, the comments have a resounding vibe of disappointment in the project. Licensing issues were cited as a reason why the game did not make the lineup of Evo Japan's preview event, Sai.

As of now, reception for Icons: Combat Arena is mixed to say the least.

Sign-ups for the open beta are now open on the Icons website, with the incentive of an exclusive in-game skin for players that opt in.
