Fighting Layer EX will launch digitally for PlayStation 4 worldwide before the end of June, Arika announced during a Twitch live stream tonight.
The standard edition of Fighting Layer EX will cost $59.99, and include 15 Gougi decks and 12 characters (and Hokuto variation). A “Light” version including five Gougi decks and 12 characters (without Hokuto variation) will also be available for $39.99. Downloadable content will include “Type-A” and “Type-Gold” character color variations.
Arika said that if the game does well, it could also receive a physical release, as well as a PC version via Steam.
Also announced during the stream, Shadowgeist (pictured) will be a playable character. The currently announced roster of playable characters includes:
- Allen Snider
- Blair (formerly Blair Dame)
- Darun Mister
- Doctrine Dark
- Hokuto / Shirase
- Jack (formerly Cracker Jack)
Two characters are still to be announced.
Other details shared on the stream include that the game will not have a Story Mode (but there is a single-player mode that has yet to be announced), not support legacy controllers upon release, and only feature Japanese voice-overs.
