I guess this is the year of revivals then, especially for fighting games. First Marvel vs Capcom 3, then Mortal Kombat, we have King of Fighters XIII on the way, and now Bloody Roar! Now if only Eternal Champions gets the reboot treatment…
Well, I digress. It was recently tweeted by HudsonSoft that Bloody Roar, the fighting game franchise that had its last installment way back in 2003, will be revived with its fifth iteration sometime next year. Bloody Roar has you take on roles of various martial arts experts who have the ability to morph into an animal, from the classic “werewolf” style fighter to more furry creatures like moles and rabbits. The games’ gimmick did make it stand out from other, more complex fighters back in the day. While it was not as deep or complex as most fighting games, the series itself is still a cult favorite, and it is nice to see a revival is coming soon.
Update: Looks like that revival is not happening. At least not yet, it seems.
After the past few days have been abuzz over a Bloody Roar sequel, today it was announced that the whole thing is a sham, sadly. At least, that is what other twitter messages and websites are saying.
Of course, now I don’t know what to believe, but then again most of the websites that originally posted the story were following the twitter feed as the only proof anyway, so I guess we can take solace in the fact that we were duped together as a community, if it really is a hoax. Either way, I feel like playing Bloody Roar 3.
