The very pretty fighting game Fantasy Strike from Sirlin Games just got a great update, enabling cross-platform online play between Linux/macOS/Windows and the Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 consoles.
Apply to all online modes including Casual and Ranked, find a match should be a lot easier now. You can also challenge or spectate others from your in-game friends list, which also works across all platforms too as you can add people from any platform based on tags.
Excellent, this is how more games with multiplayer should do it. Often there's no real technical reason why it shouldn't happen and it's great that console makers have finally woken up to this. It adds value!
I love the characters in this game, the stretchy arms of Argagarg (try saying that three times quickly…) are quite amusing to fight with. This update that enables cross-play also fixes a bunch of bugs, you can see the patch notes here.
One thing I do wish Fantasy Strike had was a built-in tournament mode, I always find those end up pulling me in when I can run and join community tournaments, always good fun.
You can find the Linux version of Fantasy Strike on Steam.
