I'm getting a bit of a 90's SNK vibe, it reminds me of Art of Fighting and even 3 Count Bout. The animation is a bit lacking at this stage, but I do like the look of it and think it has potential.

The amount of effort by (one guy?) is amazing. Looks like a fun game!

AFAIK it's an arcade exclusive sequel to a doujin PC game, made using 2D Fighter Maker. Clearly it's not going to set the FGC world alight but I think it's pretty cool that these indies can get their games in arcades this way. Good look to 'em.

The only good thing about this kind of cabinet is that it perfectly caters to 2 and 4 player setups, mostly inspired by arcade-for-home cabinets with 3rd and 4th players at the edge while players 1 and 2 are at the center. That could also mean potential UI accommodations for any game that want to match player layout instead of the standard left to right order (alternatively, wire the players from left to right like the old days).
I think the USA Konami 4 or 6 player cabs were for arcade only in the earl 90ties. At least I lost many quarters in them in arcades and not at someones home. :D

More like a grand. Cheap for an arcade release, but I know what you mean.

You have to collect a certain number of stars per level.

I agree. This is terrible. Not really the type of quality game we should be expecting from $2500 hardware.

2021 is looking disappointing regarding the exa. I'd love to see something like the new Metal Slug adapted and brought over to this system. Instead we get some shovelware.

Power to the exa!

I'm going to go against the grain here, I think it looks fun and quirky, and the cheaper price point is very welcome. :)

Yeah I've actually no opinion really on it but all arcade systems need some budget titles

This would make a great budget exa title:



Played it to death when it came out. Super addictive with "just one more go" quality.
