Illustration for article titled Lastfight Is A 2016 Take On Power Stone

Lastfight is a new fighting game from Piranaking that, well, as the headline suggests, should be of interest to anyone who likes their fighting games a little (or a lot) more 3D than Street Fighter can manage.

Based on a French martial arts comic, it’s oozing with style. There are ten fighters, eight stages and a massive range of weapons and junk you can throw at your opponents, from rocket launchers to dinosaur bones to giant 80s cell phones that call in airstrikes.

Plus: if you can get three friends together in the same room there’s 2v2 local multiplayer.

ADMISSION: I am not a big fighting games guy, so can’t speak for the real technical shit that a hardcore fan might obsess over. But as someone who loved Power Stone, I’ve been having fun with this!

It’s out on Steam very soon (or maybe even now depending where you are and when you’re reading this).

I can’t be the only one who’s extremely bothered by the fact that the official title of the game seems to be “LASTFIGHT” when the spacing (kerning? not sure if that’s the appropriate term in this particular instance) on the official logo clearly indicates that the title is actually “LAST FIGHT”.

...

Okay, maybe I AM the only one, seeing as that’s kind of a silly thing to get hung up on, but I felt like mentioning it anyway.
