Fighting EX Layer - Discussion


Buy the game pls
I need it on Steam :cry:


I hope it’s really Roso not a random skinny K-Pop dude


Bios for all characters:









Darun Mister:


Allen Snider:


Doctrine Dark:


Blair Dame:


Cracker Jack:





Yeah, looks like Vulcano might be (hopefully) the last introduced.


I truly hope this game does well so we can get more characters in the future. Along with a disk version for the game. I can’t wait to see the hidden characters that appeared in the end of Shadowgeist’s trailer


Wait, there won’t be a disc-based version at launch?


I just hope they won’t messed up Rosso his already a decent character no need to be changed to suit something new or different audience


Arika said no only digital unless the game gains a lot of sells. Then people will be able to buy disk version


I like Savage Reign Hayate.

weird Rosso and Sharon…kinda meh from colors

Area and Pollum seems okay and better with their redesign.

Modernized Hayate seems off his bad ass for being a samurai his more interesting and badass to be a Misturugi for S.Calibur or Haohmaru from S.Showdown.

Sanane = Nanase? I like her new design but the Spear isn’t She better had a extending pole like Goku in DBZ but mechanical. To be complimentary to her techie and youthful aesthetics.



Booooo, Rosso, Pullum, Sharon might be DLC :confused:


Looks like were getting Hayate decendant than the original Hayate


Extending pole

And modern day Hayate decendant should have Light Saber instead than old school katana

Latest gameplay video.


Gotta question: FEXL is a REAL GAME now! So shouldn’t this be moved into the permanent thread section?


Here are answers to some common questions we are receiving.

Q: Is this Download Only?
A: Yes, it it Download Only. Nishitani-san actually had 1000 Physical Copies made for private use, but these are not for sale. They won’t even be made in time for the Release Day.

Q: Is this PS4 Only?
A: Yes, it is PS4 Only. We have begun research on making a Steam version, but no matter how fast I think we won’t be able to do anything until at least September. It takes at least 2 months to develop if we focus all our energy, then an additional month for Quality Assurance.

Q: Is it impossible to add more Single Payer modes?
A: You can take on various challenges in Expert Mode, practice against a CPU opponent in Training Mode, and take on opponent after opponent with different Gougi in the KUMITE; but at the current point in time, there is no Story Mode to enjoy. It’s not that we think it’s not necessary, it’s just that we want to work on New Characters next.

Q: I want to fight without Gougi.
A: That is no possible; please understand that our goal for this game is to make a game where the battles change and evolve mid-battle. However, you can try experiencing the game without Gougi in Training Mode.

Q: It’s too expensive for what’s included.
A: We’re sorry and ask for your understanding. When compared to other, already successful Fighting Games we can’t say much; but please understand that with our size it is impossible for us to release a Fighting Game on a global scale without selling it at this price.

Q: When will the 4 remaining characters that were announced be released?
A: We will look at the sales in mid-July and then decide. If the sales numbers are unsuitable, then I’m sorry to say we will have to cancel our plans for these characters. Also, at the present time we are thinking about adding not 4, but 5 new characters.

Q: Can we Pre-order the game?
A: Unfortunately we did not get the rights to sell Pre-orders. These are only given to games with physical releases.

Q: Can we play this game with the old EX music?
A: There are some classic songs hidden within the game.

Q: If we purchase the Light Version, can we purchase DLC so we have everything the Standard Version has?
A: Yes, but it will be a little more expensive that buying the Standard Version originally.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.


June 28th is the final release date. That’s earlier than I expected to be quite honest, but it’s also in a decent time period after E3 so the buzz from all the news we’ll hear over the course of next week won’t overshadow this game


New trailer:

We get a look at the characters, modes, Gougi decks, and DLC colors.
