2012: The Year Of The Fighters Preview

The fighting game genre is back, and this year, it’s bigger than ever. With many of the major fighters expected to make a comeback this year, fans of the genre will have a lot to choose from. And many sore fingers.

1: Soul Calibur V

Starting the year off with a bang is Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur V.The weapon based fighter’s return to the spotlight after a near four year absence paves the way for a big year ahead. Soul Calibur V takes place seventeen years after the fourth installment and introduces a new cast of younger fighters, while playing host to returning favorites.

Keeping up with a tradition that began with Soul Calibur II, the fifth game in the series includes special guest character Ezio Auditore da Firenze from Ubisoft’s acclaimed Assassin’s Creed franchise. Tekken creator, Katsuhiro Harada, also gets in on the fun as a special non-playable character in the game’s Quick Match mode.

Dead Or Alive Is Back On PlayStation

It’s been over a decade since Tecmo’s fast paced fighter graced a Sony home console. Dead or Alive is my second most favorite fighting game right after Tekken and as a fan of the genre DOA 4 was the only game that made me grab a 360 controller so I was pretty excited when Tecmo announced Dead or Alive 5 will be available on BOTH the PS3 and 360 in 2012.

Here’s a look at the pre-alpha version of Dead or Alive 5 revealed during last week’s Tokyo Game Show:

With Dead or Alive 5, Soul Calibur V, Street Fighter x Tekken, Virtua Fighter Final Showdown and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arriving next year, 2012 is going to continue where 2011 left off in terms of excellent fighting games.
