TOKYO – July 30, 2020 – “Fight Crab“, the clashing crustacean combat arena brawler from publisher PLAYISM and developer Nussoft, strikes Steam’s weak point for massive damage with its Windows PC launch today.
A Reddit AMA for the game is currently underway and Nussoft will be available for email interviews during GDC, taking place Aug. 4-6, 2020.
Witness madness incarnate as crab warriors enter the arena wielding their choice of dozens of weapons, including sabers, hand fans, and revolvers. Find the perfect playstyle thanks to more than 20 species with an array of body types.
Some scuttle around quickly in their smaller shells, others use long and gangly arms to keep opponents at a distance, and heavyweights advance slowly but boast greater resistance to make up for it.
Battle across more than 10 dynamic stages, including a downtown rush-hour intersection bustling with cars and the terrifying crab death-factory known as the supermarket. Pull down chandeliers hanging precariously above a banquet table or shove foes into the path of a moving train to soften them up.
A weakened combatant is ripe for flipping, but the embarrassment of legs thrashing in the air is nothing compared to the loser’s lot of going into the dinner pot.
Customize crustacean champions in a full rainbow of colors for a dash of personal flavor, then climb to the top of the food chain in campaign mode or prove who is the better shellfish in 1v1 or 2v2 multiplayer battles. Make friends salty by serving defeat up on a platter in cross-play multiplayer with the Nintendo Switch™ version when it releases later this year.
“Can love bloom in the ring? Impossible. Crabs are incapable of love. They only live for combat,” said Masafumi Onuki, founder, Nussoft.
“Fans can finally grasp Fight Crab in their pincers. Now all that remains is to see who will reign supreme amidst the chaos.”
Fight Crab is out now on Steam for Windows PC with Japanese, English, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) language options for $19.99
