Fantasy Strike Full Launch Set for Summer 2018 Across PC, PS4, and Switch

Sirlin Games announced Fantasy Strike will see its full launch this summer.

The game, currently in Steam early access, will launch simultaneously this summer across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch.

Fantasy Strike will feature improved controls for the Switch version, and all 3 versions will feature professional voice acting, facial animations and a tag team battle system mode where players can choose 3 different fighters from the 10 fighter roster.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


Be an archer with fiery arrows, a colorful painter, a martial arts master who can transform into a dragon, and more! Fantasy meets martial arts in this vibrant world.

This game is designed by an ex-Street Fighter dev and hardcore player for play in tournaments. Mixups, rushdown, zoning, and the grapplers seeming too powerful on day 1. It’s got all that. And you can play it with pretty much anyone in the fighting game community, no matter what other fighting game they play, because you can all reach basic competency in Fantasy Strike in minutes and start playing for real. Plus you can play with a joystick, gamepad, Guitar Hero controller, or whatever else you want.

Bullet Points

  • Excellent online play. Uses GGPO, the best-in-class networking technology any competent fighting game should use.
  • Game modes available now: play online quickmatch, directly challenge a friend, play local multiplayer, arcade, or try our full-featured practice mode. Several more modes are in the works.
  • Unique throw escape. To escape (normal) throws, simply let go of all your controls! You’ll automatically “yomi” counter any throw attempt.
  • Life bar shows discrete hit points. You always know exactly how much a combo will do because life bars show each individual hit point.
  • Dragon.
