There have been many fighting games based on other games, but none as awesome as this one. After a year of hushed whispers, a secret project has finally been made public. It’s called League of Fighters, and it will dominate.
League of Fighters is fan project bringing League of Legends characters into a 2D fighting game. The game is anything but a standard fighting game, adopting game mechanics similar to League of Legends. Spells or attacks will work the same as in the game, for example, have the same cooldowns.
Players will be able to choose their summoner spells when they select a character, using smash controls for the inputs makes the game suitable for anything from a keyboard top a stick. With an added Assist system players will be able to call on their favourite champions for a gank. According to the official website, even characters that are not exactly suited to a fighting game, like Kogmaw will still be available for the “Call for Gank” feature. This reeks of pure win!
League of Fighters will include a single player mode, local and online multiplayer, and will be free-to-play for PC. It’s purely a fan project from which the developers, InstaBurst will receive no profit from. The team is also looking for more people to help them finish this project, if you think you have the skills to create unique character art based on League of Legends and add to their game, visit their recruitment page. Here’s to making an awesome game, just for the sake of making an awesome game.
