Toribash Next

Publisher Nicalis and developer Nabi Studios have announced Toribash Next, a new free-to-play fighting game sequel.

Toribash Next is launching for Windows PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store) on January 24th. The game supports cross-platform play between both storefronts.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:


Toribash Next is the sequel to Toribash, the award-winning turn-based sandbox fighting game. Toribash revolutionized the genre by allowing players to create their own moves during a match, using easy-to-understand 3D physics tools. Toribash Next takes fighting games to the next level with weapons, four-player battles and a new replay editor, plus more of the customization and modding options that made the original game a fan favorite.


Challenge your friends to a bloody four-player free-for-all, or team up for freestyle tricking and parkour exhibitions. Change the rules, spawn items and even alter the environment right in the middle of a match. Create epic martial-arts replays by editing in new moves after the fact. Toribash Next gives you the freedom to make the moves you’ve dreamed of making… and play the way you’ve dreamed of playing!
