Today, I’m excited to announce – and take a first look – a new guest character joining our 3D arena fighter Mighty Fight Federation: Miriam from the action platformer Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. ! Miriam will be a free addition to the main game and available to everyone later this spring. As a reminder, Mighty Fight Federation is now available on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
Like our other guest stars of licensed characters such as Yooka-Laylee and ToeJam & Earl, Miriam has her own level and a remixed music track. She will have one of the biggest moves in the Mighty Fight Federation, focusing on the synergy of weapons and shards, with many moves inspired by the entirety of the Bloodstained franchise. See her in action in the trailer below:
We’ve worked with famed Bloodstained creator Koji Igarashi and his team to make sure we do Miriam justice, from her unique design to her huge array of weapons and shard abilities. Jullian Spillane, the game’s Creative Director, and I are incredibly excited to see what fans of technical-style fighters are able to accomplish when it debuts later this year. You can take a closer look at the model of the game below, and Igarashi-san himself has found time to share his excitement.
“Hello, this is Iga. I am happy to announce that Miriam has been included in the Mighty Fight Federation! Miriam is the protagonist of my side-scrolling, exploration-packed action game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I’m very excited to see what style of fighting she will bring to the table. Oh, and if you haven’t heard of Bloodstained, check it out too ~ I wish you all had fun playing both works. “
Mighty Fight Federation is playable with up to four players, and console cross-play ensures epic and chaotic showdowns can take place locally or online. Comprehensive tutorials and training modes get players of all abilities and fighting game backgrounds to work, while veteran fighters can be sure to land every shot in this balanced and highly competitive brawler thanks to to its rollback netcode.
Whether it’s a one-on-one, triple threat, or fatal quadruple, contestants can jump into the action and join the foray 24/7. The game features 13 extravagant characters (and more to come), each with their own unique play styles, combos and special moves. It also has a killer soundtrack with music by Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania), James Landino (RWBY, No Straight Roads), Vince DiCola (Rocky IV, Transformers) and Manami Matsumae (Mega Man, Shovel Knight).
Mighty Fight Federation is out now on PS5 and PS4, so you can join in on the action while waiting for Miriam’s debut later this year.
