Stun Games and Kiss Ltd. are thrilled to announce that their furious 2D arcade fighter ‘Slashers: The Power Battle’ has launched onto Early Access today. PC warriors are invited to join the fray in frantic weapon-based arcade fighting, inspired by classic game series like Street Fighter 3, Last Blade and Guilty Gear. Slashers: The Power Battle offers epic, tactical combat that explodes across bold cartoon environments with fantastical larger than life fighters to command and defeat.
With fluid 2D animations and vibrant colourful graphics, Slashers: The Power Battle is a highly strategic game with 11 unique warriors to pummel your friends with, each with their own fighting styles and moves. Characters include a dagger wielder Ottoman warrior who excels in slap attacks, a giant dagger riding ninja, a Kazakh shaman who uses spirits to attack and curse opponents and a Templar knight who resists and counters opponent’s attacks.
Slashers first appeared for iOS and Android in 2015 and quickly became a huge global hit. The unprecedented success of the 2D fighter meant Slashers: The Power Battle was quickly destined for a PC launch. The new version has been completely revamped and restyled from the ground up for an incredibly polished PC battleground with brand new animations and new gameplay features.
Slashers: The Power Battle features a winning combination of easy to use controls with 4 attack buttons (Slash, Big Slash, Kick, Power) and epic tactical gameplay. Use devastating combos to cripple your enemies, fill up your ‘Power Meter’ to unleash a dizzying lineup of strategic moves, and defeat your foes with character specific finishers. Slashers features multiple gameplay modes for a truly varied fighting experience. Create and customize your warrior with Journey mode, challenge players all around the world with Net-play mode and access each character’s rich story in Arcade mode.
“Slashers: The Power Battle is extremely fast paced, chaotic, challenging fun that really captures the spirit of the old-school fighting games” said Galip Kartoglu, Founder of Stun Games. “We’re so excited to be bringing Slashers to PC gamers at the earliest possible opportunity, and can’t wait to start engaging with our community.”
“Early Access is such a fantastic opportunity for hungry, community focused developers like Stun Games. We’re already so thrilled with the development of Slashers: The Power Battle so we can only imagine how it will flourish with the help of the Early Access players” Said Darryl Still, Co-Founder and CEO of Kiss Ltd.
