- 14 cyberpunk fighters at launch, each with a different playstyle, aesthetics, and fast head-to-head action gameplay at up to 60fps
- Basic moves and combos that players can combine into advanced techniques, mix-ups, cross-ups, and guard breaks
- Authentic fighting game experience based on the roots of the genre on the backdrop of an atmospheric cyberpunk reality
- Competitive ladder with divisions and rank up rewards as well as a replay function, advanced netcode, and custom lobby options
- A complete fair play where players can unlock new fighters or even skins just by playing the game
“We’re excited to be publishing Metal Revolution on mobile.” Said Qin Liu, Vice President of YOOZOO Games. “With its stunning graphics, deep gameplay mechanics, and accessible controls, Metal Revolution is apparently the best of its kind. Since the game was first announced in 2018, it has already been a highly anticipated and acclaimed title in the fighting game community. It’s a pleasure to work with NExT Studios, who are a group of passionate game lovers and diligent developers, to present this ambitious and highly creative title to gamers worldwide.”
“As we have been building Metal Revolution, we have spent a great deal of time thinking about ways to improve the online fighting game experience, from motion capturing the moves of professional martial artists to creating a new network recovery system that will help keep gamers engaged even when internet connections drop. We’re so passionate about Metal Revolution that we would like to invite you to take our team on directly in a special developer arena once the game launches. Come show us your best moves!” Said Jensen Hu, Metal Revolution Game Producer.
