Forged by the efforts between the Soul Caibur and Tekken development teams, Bandai Namco has recently released their newest “fighting game” title called Rise of Incarnates onto Steam’s Early Access program. This offers up a 2 vs. 2 battle system where players form up unique team compositions against their opponents as they dash, fly and bash each other across a war torn battlefield.
Now, the reason why I put the words fighting game in quotations is because from the traditional standpoint, Rise of Incarnates is anything but a traditional fighting game. Rather, if you have ever played mech action games like Virtual-On or Gundam Extreme Vs, then you’ll have a much better idea of how Rise of Incarnates plays out. As a matter of fact: most of the gameplay elements for this title were taken straight from recent Gundam VS. titles that have been available in Japanese arcades from quite some time. While it certainly provides something uncommon to the fighting game genre, there’s still a question of how well it plays and how well it maintains itself as a F2P game while remaining fair for a competition focused game.
