And I’m not sure if it’s gonna be a great addition to the list…
This is a description of the game according to a press release from Twelve Interactive:
Martial Arts: Capoeira is the most exciting and original fighting game ever created! Sport and RPG elements have been combined with traditional fighting game mechanics for the very first time, to offer unrivalled realism and challenging brutal gameplay. Train until you sweat blood to increase skills such as endurance, speed, leg and arm strength. Then when you think you’re ready, take part in underground street fights for cold, hard cash. Become one with your gamepad or Wiimote and strive to earn the right to call yourself the most powerful Capoeira fighter in the World!
So, from reading this description it’s unclear how true to actual capoeira this game will be, but I don’t think I’ll get my hopes up. Granted, we don’t have much more than a short press release and a few pictures.
Hey, at least the pictures show them doing the ginga.
Train until you sweat blood? Bet against other fighters in outlawed Street Fights or ‘Rodas’? KO your opponent with killer attacks?
I sent an email to a PR rep for more information, so I’ll be sure to give an update if she answers my questions.
I guess we’ll find out what it’s all about in a year or so (if this game is actually widely distributed).
Do you have any thoughts?
