Metal Revolution is a new fighting game from developer NEXT Studios. It utilizes a simple control scheme combined with detailed gameplay and a “cyberpunk robot” setting in order to stand out from other titles of the genre. Check out the game’s newly-released trailer below:

From the trailer, you can clearly see that the visuals of Metal Revolution have been inspired by Overwatch. Both games feature that exaggerated art style that gives you the feeling that you’re living in a comic book. Rising Thunder, the scratched fighting game from Radiant Entertainment, is another name that comes to mind. In fact, if you told me that Metal Revolution was developed by some former staff from Radiant, I wouldn’t be surprised at all.

Similar to Rising Thunder, Metal Revolution has a straightforward control scheme, making it relatively easy for new players to pick up. That said, it absolutely still has enough depth to satisfy veterans of the fighting genre. Combat is fast-paced and smooth, with each character having a unique ultimate ability that allows you to finish your opponent in style.

At launch, the game will include many of the usual modes that you’d expect. There’s a training mode, quick match, an arcade mode, ranked play, and more. Not only that, but the developer also has plans to make a story mode for all of the characters, alongside bonus skins and stages that you can unlock using in-game currency or real money.

Metal Revolution Modes
The game promises several different modes

This year has already witnessed the release of two major fighting titles: Mortal Kombat 11 and Dead or Alive 6, and we also have Samurai Shodown coming later this summer. As a result, Metal Revolution might easily be overlooked. However, if you enjoy minimalistic fighting games, you should definitely keep an eye out for this one.

Currently, there is no release date announced for Metal Revolution yet, but the devs promise that more information will be coming later this year. Stay tuned for more updates.
