Rivals of Aether is a Pixelated, Elemental-Based Take on Super Smash Bros.

Rivals of Aether is an upcoming pixelated, 2D fighting game that is more akin to something like Super Smash Bros.

The game was confirmed for Xbox One via the [email protected] program, but it’s also bringing that addicting looking formula to the PC as well. Featured above, you can view a pretty fun yet informative video breaking down the game and its various elemental beasties.

The actual Rivals within the game are made up of four different elements: Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. Each rival can fully manipulate the battlefield in different ways via their elemental powers. Naturally, each element has a pretty different playstyle, so you can choose to only play as one (for me it’s probably Water), or you can try to master them all.

Rivals of Aether is on track for a release sometime next year.
