Never missing an opportunity to run a big sale, Valve have put together a big fighting game sale including multiple genres with lots of games going cheap.
The sale includes straight-up 1 on 1 traditional fighting games, side-scrolling beat 'em ups and a whole lot more in between. There's some really nice picks there too, although the special event sale page they setup makes finding what you want a little difficult with only a few basic genre categories.
Here's a few on sale that support Linux with builds:
- Guacamelee! Gold Edition - 70% off
- Megabyte Punch - 70% off
- Skullgirls - 70% off
- Overgrowth - 67% off
- River City Ransom: Underground - 60% off
- Soda Girls - 60% off
- Gang Beasts - 50% off
- Lethal League Blaze - 30% off
- Streets of Rage 4 (it only just released for Linux!) - 30% off
Them's Fightin' Herds gets an honourable shout-out too being on a 40% discount, as they're getting really close to releasing their official Linux version.
When it comes to 3D fighters, it's a genre that Linux support sorely lacks. Thankfully with the Steam Play Proton compatibility layer, many more are possible to play just not supported directly like Street Fighter V (60% off), TEKKEN 7 (75% off) and DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT (50% off).
See the full sale page here, it runs until November 16.

Quoting: omer666Be careful, Vanguard Princess port is broken and it does not run with Proton or Linux Runtime.Good to know. I looked a bit further, and it looks like even on Windows it's an absolute mess with lots of complaining about it. What a shame.
Its a fun little combat game with fun jump mechanics, but really makes you wonder why its 24GB.
Main critic for this game: it asks too much question, too much menus before to start a fight.
