Several years ago a group of fans came together to create a My Little Pony-inspired 2D fighting game. Of course in walks Hasbro and shuts it down. The team came back fighting and after a successful $600,000 IndieGoGo campaign, Them’s Fightin Herds was born.
Mane6 was even contacted by Lauren Faust, who headed up the art team for the TV hit My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She offered to design new characters that are legally safe riffs on the magical TV ponies.
Them’s Fightin Herds will launch for Windows PC on Steam on February 22. You start off with six characters to choose from with more promised soon. It will also have unlockable cosmetics if you own Blazblue Centralfiction, Skullgirls, or GUILTY GEAR Xrd REV 2.
