The authors of Arc System Works announce the PS4 version of the 2D fighting game Slice, Dice & Rice
The Japanese developers of Arc System Works make the happiness of all 2D fighting games enthusiasts announcing that they are working on the PS4 version of Slice, Dice & Rice.
The title, already released on Steam in April, is described by authors as an indie 2D slasher inspired by Bushido Blade, a game that revolves around the idea of finding an opening in opponents defense and ending the round with a single, clean hit.
The gameplay mechanics are characterized by a set of basic abilities that allowed us to remove the need for memorizing inputs and move-lists while retaining the complexity. Moves can be canceled to an attack, hits can be parried or dodged, and they can clash with one another. According to developers, this creates a mind-game heavy gameplay, one that mimics real samurai showdowns.
We can play as one of 8 characters, all with their own stories and unique fighting styles. Game’s cast offers many variations of gameplay, from a swift monk using only his fists in battle, to a muscular lady with a giant sword that compensates for speed and mobility with endurance during her attacks. Fights take place in an alternative version of Japanese underworld and features 6 unique stages with hand-drawn textures.
Slice, Dice & Rice should land on PS4 over the next few months, presumably between the end of this year and the beginning of 2018. The PC version of the title, based on Steam statistics, boasts about 70% of positive reviews: at the moment, we do not know if the console version of the game will include new characters, stages or exclusive equipment items. We’ll see: meanwhile, you can check the screenshots related to original version on Steam.
