I wish I was excited for this game, but i don't care for fighting games. =|
SO GOOD!also, first?
so i guess it will be computer platformed? I am such a controller junkie
I think it may just be the awesome music... xD
When this game comes out, fun shall be had. Even though I'm not particularly fond of fighting games, this will still be awesome anyway...Yay for ponies!
Even when fighting Twilight finds the time to read.
Holy crap...I like her super special at the end there. :D
VERY MUCH DO WANT.
Not much of a fighting game fan (mostly a button-masher), but I will still like to see how this turns out in the end. Love the music.
Stotic, in an earlier livestream the developers said that there was gamepad and joystick support. Rejoice!
o-o .... her final... move. Oh. oh, the pain in my skull.
Just... just put the book down, Twilight. We don't want any trouble here!Twi's a badass.I approve.
Fighting is Magic for EVO 2012!
Dat finishing move... dayum, Twilight. You scary! lol Looking good. Twilight be kickin' some serious flank. :D
Duuude. I don't care if I usually suck at fighters, I want this game SO BAD.
I hate fighting games, mostly because all I can manage is button mashing, so I'm not really excited over this one.That said, when the game comes out, I'll happily watch videos of other people's matches
It is visually very very good, well animated etc, but like Wackyteen Im not a fighting game person, and have a hard time working in Ponys fighting for fun. Well executed, well animated, nice mechanics.... but not for me
I am literally waiting for this just as much as I am waiting for Skyrim! Also, That soundtrack kicks flank! RainbowCrash88 was definitely the right person for the job!
yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!
Saw this a little while ago (I follow Mane 6's blog), but yes I have to agree that this game is shaping up fabulous. If I do not sound incredibly, rabidly excited it's only because I am forcibly restraining myself... the suspense in waiting for this game to be released is almost painful.And I don't play fighting games either.
I love how the book factors into her fighting style. Really gives off the Twilight feel. Great job.
@When she exploded at the end.Bllllaaaaaaaaaaaaeeeeeerrrrrrggghhhmpth.Sorry, that was just my melted brain coming out of my mouth.I cannot wait for this to be released!
*fangasms*It's a Twilight Introduction, but the real newcomer for me is Pinkie Pie. Foam Finger attack? So. Awesome.Oh, and Twilight's finisher, WOW!Thank goodness I play games by Blizzard, so I'm used to waiting for programmers to take a long time to get everything done just right. History shows that those who do take their time more than often than not come out with a superior product. And as this video shows, things are looking GREAT so far!
This looks better than half the fighters I've played.
Ofc Twilight would figure out how to beat someone up with books, while reading them at the same time no-less.Definitely using Twilight.And that final, awesome.
I'm looking forward to all of the different colors of the characters. It's going to be so awesome.
My fear factor for twilight just rose even higher than when I watched lesson zero
our bodies are NOT ready for MANE 6.@Select FewAHHH, YOU'RE GETTING BRAIN ALL OVER MY SHIRTHOT MELTING BRAIN!
So want to play this
im dieing to see this finished!!!!!!!!!......and hope for a phone app
Finally got some Pinkie Pie game-play! :DDDDDNot too fond of the song, especially considering that it represents the entire game, but I'm still really hyped!
Holy crap this looks so awesome. And, if I may say, the new rendition of Twilight Sonata sounds AMAZING.
Cool, it makes our two person WIP pony game shrivel in comparison.
I love that Pinkie never stops having fun, even when she's getting her flank kicked.
I love that when Applejack shows up at the end of the video, the melody of the music turns into her part from At The Gala. Anyway, I'm super excited for this game. Looks like Pinkie will be the third character they do a video for.
This is starting to look completely awesome. I can't wait to try it out.
The fun has been doubled!
So much want!! And Pinkie's foam finger attack is the best thing.
Remind me to make a "Meet the Twilight" poster A la TF2. Also 43rd, one past perfection
Don't ever interrupt Twilight when she's reading a book.
This game is looking both deep and polished, and am eagerly waiting its release.Pinkie is looks like she is going to be a rather unconventional fighter.
@Baked Badlike it'd be any other way :D
GO TWILIGHT!!!Can't wait to play this game. I will pay up to fifty dollars for it. Keep that in mind, devs. ;)
This is suddenly looking like a fighting game I can get into.Which reminds me, I need to get back to not sucking at Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
I like the music, but overall I'm none too hyped for this game. I'll give it a go still.
Twilight "OP" Sparkle, eh? :) Rejoice!
I've never been that great at fighting games, but I'll sure give this a shot!
@EthanStroupWhich makes this game all the more epic when you remember that the entire thing is going to be FREE!
PINKIE PIE YES
I wonder if Fluttershy will play like Carl Clover from Blazblue.I can't fully imagine her as a fighter.
I hope Rainbow Dash/Fluttershy get longer Air combos. Besides that I'm lovin' what I'm seeing!
Hey, this is looking good. I'm gonna major Pinkie, I love random characters...*thinks about the Joker*I hope these are all balanced. Lookin awesome!
RainbowCrash, Y U NO RELEASE TWILIGHT SOUNDTRACK!?
@wackyteenyou're telling me you've never like Super Smash Bros?
I'm looking forward to this game. I'm not the bigggest fan of fighting games, but they can be fun and ponies just make it 20% cooler.
There's something stragnely hypnotizing about watching ponies beat the buck out of eachother.
not bad, It looks quite well designed. combo's look smooth and the animation is quite good as well
I really want to play this game, looks awesome!!!
@CrispyYoshi: What part of "work in progress" do you not understand? "Not too fond of the song, especially considering that it represents the entire game." Funny, I don't remember reading that on the Mane6 blog. Maybe you're just drunk and like making up stuff?
Okay, I would pay good money for this game. Hasbro needs to buy it and put it on PSN/Xbox Live/Steam.
EPIC!!We finally got some Pinkie Pie action. Foam finger is a silly move but it suits her very well.New background arena field. Twilight is at her own element. Speaking on which, that secondary finishing move....whoa. o.OTwilight theme music! Can I has download link please?
Haha, nice. They're using a version of Twilight Sonata for her theme.
@Baked BadShe wouldn't have it any other way. Pinkie is unconventional everything.
It's official. When this game is released, I will main Twilight, dedicating my life to mastering the sacred art of Book-jitsu.NONE SHALL STAND BEFORE ME AND LIVE!!!!!
I'll be maining Derpy- or possibly Angel if he's on the charlist.
Is it vain that I'm going to main myself?*shrugs*I'm mediocre at fighting games and I don't normally play as characters with my style,I prefer fast and aerial fighters with a medium/low priority.But I will diligently try to main myself!
Biggest thing I'm looking forward to is the Soundtrack, RainbowCrash88 is AWESOME!
@Twilight Sparkle Yeah, I'm not going to tie myself down to one character until I see what Rainbow Dash brings to the table. Not that your magic isn't awesome, but a Sonic Rainboom trumps most everything. But in the end, I usually pick the character that has the most trap/counter abilities. So there's a good chance It'll be you.
Call me a prude but it honestly feels... kinda wrong to me to see friends like this fighting in this manner. The one time I ever got into a physical fight with a friend, we never spoke to each other again...I just hope there's a good story reason for why they're fighting in the first place. These are some damn powerful attacks they're throwing at each other and anything less than mind control or fending off evil alien clones or something seems like an insufficient reason to be doing this.I 'unno... maybe I'm just more sensitive to this given my past...
Twilight Sparkle. This theme. Mane6.ALL OF MY LOVE.
Lol watch Flutershy will play like Pokemon Trainer in SSBB. She will stand back and cheer wile her critters fight.
This is what happens when people don't read a book. Twilight will beat the hay out of you and force you to read a book one way or another!!
Amazing. That special move at the end......wow.I have been waiting for this game since it was started. It's actually on my top 3 list along with Saints Row 3 and Skyrim. That says something.
This is going to be so awesome!
I was expecting rapidash twilight like phoenix from mvc3.There still be time.
omg that final attack!
Looks incredible as ever, although Pinkie is the actual new character here; we've seen some rougher Twilight gameplay before.I was surprised that the opening "splash" screen shows some pretty weak fanart of Twilight. The art in the game looks very good, so it's a shame to see much weaker stuff elsewhere, which doesn't match the show. Perhaps it's the same artist and they just don't know how to draw larger images with appropriately thick and tapered line widths.I liked the music and the backgrounds. I wish we'd seen more of Twilight's recolors here ... but Mama Twilight and Dewdrop Dazzle will do for now, I suppose. Lyra could actually be an idea now with the new blind bags...The presence of Dewdrop Dazzle also explains why they're beating the shit out of one another. You need no excuse to kick Dewdrop Dazzle in the face.
I love how these guys already showed us twilkight fighting before and are now actually teasering pinkie
Perhaps I am the only one, but I am anticipating the storylines in this game most of all. The Devs have stated once that all the characters will have good reasons for fighting. I'm looking forward to playing through them. But then I've always enjoyed the ending for games like Mortal Kombat and StreetFighter among others. I hope there will be similar character development for each character's playthrough in this game.
If this is "pre-alpha", what the hell will beta be like? It all ready looks off-the-shelf ready.
Also, that Pinkie Pie finger dash attack looks like a one way ticket to a counter, hoping they give her some more robust specials cause I was planning on maining her.
That actually looks quite awesome.
HADOUKEN!..I mean, COSMIC MOON POWER!..er.. um.
As with the Applejack pre-alpha footage, I expect this music to add to my collection
Awesome to see a new stage and a little of Pinkie in action! I'm not that skilled at fighters, i can barely manage a level above 'educated button mashing', but this is going to be fun anyway.If Twilight's second super is exploding, then maybe one of Pinkie's is exploding TWICE?(i can't believe no one has said that yet)
Wow, this game looks better the more times I see it. Even though this game is a Twilight showcase, I love the Pinkie too!
So RainbowCrash88 remixed the other composer (DH)'s Twilight Sonata for the music.
I normally dont like fighting games, we'll see if this will be the exception. Also, dat finishing move at the end. I had goosebumps all over :V
Just so you all know, Twilight's final attack in the video was her "Level 3"i.e, for all the fighting. game uninitiated, it takes 3 bars of your hyper meter to do, throwing something like that out is a massive gamble, I actually didn't think it was going to hit, AJ looked dangerously close to the ground. Maybe it can OTG?
Oh look, Pinkie Pie.If her finisher doesn't involve her picking up her health bar and beaming the opponent with it, I will be somewhat disappoint.
What I can't believe is the caliber of game that is coming out of only fandom! It is unbelievable that people would dedicate so much of themselves to create something so polished for no compensation whatsoever.Free is my favorite price for anything, but I would have likely paid for this. Wow I love this fandom! (and the creators of this game!)
Eeeeee so excited!
I think my brain stopped working due to AWESOME OVERLOAD!
@BallisticYes, this.Dark Twilight Rises.
BY STARSWIRL'S BEARD, THIS IS AMAZING.I have yet to see Fluttershy's attacks, though. Sadface.
@wackyteenyour kidding right ?
Im so maining Pinkie pie <333
holy shit so much want. wish i could have seen aj's or Pinkie's special attacks though
I'm going to play this game so much it's going to break.
The game is looking wonderful at this point, but I SUCK at fighting games. When is an epic RPG going to come out for MLP:FiM?
@JenFluttershy? In a FIGHTING game? She probably cowers behind Angel who does the fighting for her. And her Super is "The Stare", with a voice clip from the user saying "I'm sorry". At least, that's what I think they might do, I could be completely wrong.
I saw this game before i was even a brony and thought it looked interesting, now it looks completely epic
i'm ditching my duodecim now! *flies psp out of window
This takes me back to my M.U.G.E.N days. I think I will enjoy this.... I'm pretty good at fighting games. <3HYPER COMBO FINISH!
I was thinking of joining the Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 tournament scene, but now I think I'll be going a different route
Is it bad that I'm more excited about Pinkie Pie than Twilight?
Now how am I going to trick my pony hating but fighting game loving friends into playing this....
Amazing! I can't wait for this. I love fighting games, but I haven't been playing the recent ones enough to get competitive. Add ponies, and I think I'd play this all day every day.
That desperation move in the end looked rather cheap - instant AoE ball of damage, I hope it's blockable at least. Also, hadoken spam.
I'm honestly more interested in Pinkie's moveset...Also, Twilight's totally broken. But I suppose you can't have a fighting game without an OPd character or two, huh?The background music is great, too. RC88 has impressed me again.SO looking forward to this game.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I love Pinkie's Giant Foam finger attack!!! That totally fits her!I have high hopes for this game, but I am positive I will not be let down!
Anyone who claims anypony is looking broken needs to remember the game is still in development. Notice the message at the beginning or the title?This is ignoring the fact that this is a character trailer made solely to make the star of it look good, not showcase balance.
Not sure what I'm more excited for. This game, or it's music.Why have I not subscribed to RainbowCrash88's channel yet!?
now if only we'd see rd vs starscream......oh wait :D
I preferred Pinkie's inflating attack... wonder if it could be used as part of a Doozy combo...
Looks like Twilight has been trying to channel Yomiko Readman with her attacks. All she needs is a tidal wave of paper to make it complete. This game is really coming along. This along with the sequel to Persona 4 look like the big up and coming fighting games. I really can't wait for this.
I really hope Pinkie's twitches and randomness is conducive to my button-mash style. XD;;;
I'm anticipating Fluttershy being a mighty glacier. A throw-heavy turtle... at least until you charge up her meter, then she goes all "You're going to LOVE ME" on the opponent and finishes the match.
Twilight as my main character confirmed.
Can you say Kikoushou? (which I might be misspelling)And nice slipping Pinkie Pie footage in there as an added bonus. :)
I bloody LOVE the music! PLEASE say they're releasing the soundtrack to this game as well!
Time to plan on buying new keyboards, as i will break the one i have playing this epic piece of hottness.
I'm not fantastic at fighting games, but I really want to dig into this game and learn how to play it.Enjoyed the trailer.
Oh, please tell me some Psycho Twilight from Lesson Zero will make it into the final game...
is there a link for the soundtrack? dx
T. Sparkle on the health bar doesn't make any sense. No one calls her Sparkle. Everyone calls her Twilight with Sparkle optional.Should be Twilight S., if you're going to abbreviate it.
I wanna see how fluttershy fights!!!!
Been waiting for this for a long time
Guess we can expect to see Pinkie next.Flutter will probably fight like Arakune, except with animals instead of demon...things.
Estimating Twi's power in that last attack, I'd say it's a fair guess that IT'S OVER 9000!!!!!!
Saw this last night shortly after it was uploaded. OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDGranted we already saw plenty of Twilight gameplay in the Livestream recording, but still: Her theme music! Her Level 3 super move! Pinkie Pie gameplay! :O Mane 6 delivers~I certainly hope her super beam doesn't OTG in the final release, though...
This is looking awesome! The only thing that saddens me is there will preobably not be a character creator and there DEFFINATELY is not going any fanon characters. Firewall and Storm Wing from TtEoAP would be some epic additions.
This... just......Yes.I think that the creators of this game should be getting ready to work on an even bigger remake after season 2. Maybe even charge a few bits for extra features like an in-game character creator and bonus characters (I'm sure nopony objects!). I was a little disappointed that PsychoTwi isn't a power-up or combo in this, but that's a minor detail. The outta-control magic-Twi power-up is fine.
My body will probably never be ready enough for this.
Fuck the game, I'm only going play it for the music
so, I was just thinking it over, and if they are limiting it to 17 characters total, here's what I think a character roster might be:Fighting is Magic character roster predictionsMane 61) AJ2) Twilight3) Pinkie Pie4) Rarity5) Rainbow Dash- tactical rain-nuke will prolly be a super6) FluttershySecondary Characters7) Big Macintosh8) Trixie9) Gilda10) Zecora11) Spike12) Octavia13) Vinyl Scratch 14) Derpy HoovesBoss characters15) Celestia16) Luna/NMM17)Discordjust my 2 bits so far
O___O I wanna use the SDM/Chaos Attack/Distortion Drive and the end of the video.
I can't wait to see how Fluttershy will fight.
Holy shit! that was an awesome finishing move! I can't wait till this game comes out. I hope it will run on my Mac.
Holy.Crud. I never wanted something so much in my life O.O.Also, this clip proves the fact twilight is badass.
>not maining Pinkie with her 4th wall breaking abilities>2011ISHYGDDT
Jeez laweez, that's frickin' awesome! I LOVE the music. This is the second best trailer related to a fighting game I've seen today!(Frank West in UMvC3, f**k yeahhh)
@TehTrojanPonyDon't forget, this is a season 1 only project. In other words, no Discord, New Luna, or Sonic Rain-nuke. We may get a Rainboom, though. ^^
The awesomeness!Its over 9000!
@ScootaChickenah I see, actually wasn't aware that they were only using season 1 stuff. Alternately, instead of Discord, I'd like to see Braeburn, Soarin' and Spitfire as playable characters. I mean, i suppose the CMCs could be playable characters but what kind of movesets would they have. I mean, I guess I guess Scootaloo could have a bunch of scooter-based attacks but I dunno what kind of attack animations you could even use for the other two. I guess if Applebloom was in there she could have a couple karate moves, and Sweetie Belle would have like, 1 "dumb fabric" related move... but that's not enough for a fully fleshed out moveset.On another note, I guess the possibility of Rarity wielding Tom as a weapon is out then...
Did... Twilight just cast Ultima?! Right on!
Move over MVC3 I'll be playing with ponies!
This is going to be amazing
Sweet Celestia...DO WANT!--Zena
soooo awesomei want play in this game
Looks fantastic! If you read their FAQ they say there will be at least one non pony character. Spike's the obvious choice but I think it might be the manticore. Seems more suited for the role. I imagine they still have some characters completely undrawn and animated so their season 1 character list isn't necesarily set in stone. Annnd even if it was, New Luna is simply a new design of old Luna. No grand design changes needed there. Although it'd probably be Nightmare Moon, the alternate costumes look like they would suffice.
Nothing is more humiliating than a book to the face! :)I loved the tagline I saw for this game somewhere - something along the lines of "Friends can be stubborn, sometimes you have to beat the friendship into them!"
If I'm honest, as a fighting game fan, I have a couple of concerns.1)Even if it's pre-alpha, the number of moves seems kind of limited. Hopefully, later builds will fix this.2)While Twilight does look to mostly be a zoner (fireball, trap, teleport), most of her tools are shown extending combos, and without spending the orange 4 dot thing, she doesn't seem to have many good tools to push her opponent back. 3)How are you meant to hit her out of her level 3? If you can't, it could be a crazy good chipping tool, considering it's range.From the system so far, here's what I've heard/gleamed:a)Every character has a launcher-earlier pre-alpha builds showed Applejack's launcher, while this video shows Twilights's.b)There is a separate...thing next to the meter which requires taking a separate action to fill (kind of like respect for ex moves in the original guilty gear).c)Crossups and air recoveries are in, which is good.d)Twilight's two alternate colours seem to be based off Lyra/Heartstrings-is the other one Celestia?e)Right now, the only type of knockdown in the game can be combo'd off of- this will probably change in later versions.Hopefully, she will be about as good as all the other ponies, because balance is awesome. As is this (hopefully)
-Best pony gameplay? Check!-Bonus Pinkie Pie gameplay? Also check!-One of the best "At the Gala" remixes I've ever heard? Double check!Wow, that was awesome to watch!
I never truly mastered a fighting game before and I always wanted to. Now I know which game.
@Dublio Not only shall the fun be had, THE FUN WILL BE DOUBLED!
Brace yourselves Twilight players, because i'm gonna be the best
Can't wait till it comes out, the game looks good, and the music is quite good.
damn she's fast
a) "How can that NOT be the doozy??? GAHHHH!!!" (Super Syrian? << yes... I know that's wrong.)b) Someone make a video of Celestia and Luna playing this. Luna wins.
Teleports, book traps, energy projectiles, and a fucking Magic Nuke? Until we find out how Rainbow Dash plays, I'm sooo maining Twilight.
OH MY GOD! I WANT THIS RIGHT NOW HOLY SHIT I DON'T CARE IF I SUCK AT FIGHTING GAMES! Once this comes out this had better be played at any and every brony meetup.
