After years of development, Mane6 has finally finished the release build of their unique fighting game, Them’s Fightin’ Herds. In addition to announcing a release date, Mane6 also announced that players that own Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2, BlazBlue, or Skullgirls will receive special cosmetic items for the game.
Development has been rocky for Them’s Fightin’ Herds. Originally, the game was intended to be a fan game of Hasbro’s series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. However, in February of 2013, the team was hit with a devastating Cease & Desist letter from Hasbro’s lawyer. However, that’s not where their story ended. In March, Lauren Faust, creator and former show-runner for Friendship is Magic, stepped in to help keep the game alive by design six new four-legged fighters for the team to us.
At launch, Them’s Fightin’ Herds will feature six playable characters, a story mode, arcade mode, survival mode, training room, target mode, dynamic music that changes on conditions such as who is currently doing well, pixel lobby, and multiplayer lobbies. The team will be adding more fighters after the game’s release date.
Them’s Fightin’ Herds will be available on the Humble Store and Steam on February 22nd, 2018, for $14.99. For more information, check out the official Steam page.
