The creators of Tekken and Soul Calibur are making a new free-to-play fighter with a lot of potential

Continuing on from Bandai Namco’s experiments and successes with the publisher’s free-to-play Tekken Revolution and Soul Calibur: Lost Swords, a new fighter from the studio’s development stable has been announced in the form of Rise of Incarnates.


Rise of Incarnates is described as a two-versus-two fighter that “unleashes unfettered 3D combat upon the PC.” Bandai Namco continues:

“In this shattered landscape,” writes Bandai Namco, “Incarnates team up for 2v2 battles within famous cities that have been realistically recreated as they vie to determine the fate of the world. Run and fly through true 3D environments as Incarnates awaken untold powers – Ares, Lilith, Mephistopheles, Grim Reaper, and more await your command.”

You can sign up for an alpha test for Rise of Incarnates at the game’s official site over here, but be sure to watch the debut trailer for the expansive fighter below to get a taste of the action to come:

What do you think of the recent free-to-play trend for fighting games like Tekken, Soul Calibur and Dead or Alive? Is it only a matter of time before Capcom follows suit with Street Fighter?
