Yes, you read that title correctly. A group of developers called the Mane6 have released the first trailer detailing their new My Little Pony inspired game, Them’s Fightin’ Herds. After a grueling five years following toy company Hasbro’s cease and desist order on the first iteration, the game is finally set to be released February 22nd, 2018.
Them’s Fightin’ Herds is a classic 2D fighting game, with the standard multiplayer VS mode, along with other features including: online matches, training, target practice, and its very own story mode. This is all tied together with charming graphics and, as the trailer puts, “dynamic music” to fit the atmosphere.
The trailer shows us a bright and lively world, similar to the one found in the My Little Pony franchise, with a colorful cast of characters to match. While only six playable characters will be available for the game’s initial release, more are promised to follow soon. If you are curious about the lore of each individual character, the Mane6 website has a section detailing their pasts and personalities.
The game will be released on Windows PC, where both My Little Pony fans and fighting game enthusiasts alike can come together and enjoy this new, quirky addition to their gaming collection.
