Not enough fighting games on Linux for you? Perhaps Battle High 2 A+ will scratch that burning itch.

It released on Steam in December last year, with the developer Mattrified Games adding official Linux support a couple of days ago. It seems it actually had a release on itch as well, although it's not clear when the Linux version was added there.

From the trailer, it actually doesn't look too bad:

Feature list

  • 15 Playable Characters
  • Arcade and Challenge Modes
  • Professional voice-acting talent
  • 2 music trackers per character
  • It's a fighting game, what else do you want me to say? (that made me laugh a bit)

You can find it on Steam and now. Going by the prices, looks like it might be cheaper on itch and itch has a demo too.

I tested the demo out and it seems to work quite nicely, pairing up my Steam Controller with the excellent SC Controller UI/Driver made it work nicely, just make sure it's on before you load the game as it didn't detect it when it was already open.

I like this game a lot. Picked it up on I have a few friends into it, also. We discovered that a lot of the endings have typos but not sure if this is homage to the days when arcade fightings did the same.
