If there's one genre Linux has a pretty big hole in, it's fighting games. Thankfully it seems we may get another, as Fantasy Strike [Official Site] is showing signs of coming over to Linux.
Tip from TuxDB, which shows it gaining a Linux depot which also shows on SteamDB. So it does look possible, as always though take such things with a pinch of salt until the developer comments. They did comment on this Steam forum post back in 2017, to say it's "definitely" something they wanted to look into.
About the game:
A fighting game designed from the ground up to be so easy to control that even non-fighting game players can play it, yet deep enough to play in tournaments. Vibrant graphics and excellent online play.
This game is designed by an ex-Street Fighter dev and hardcore player for play in tournaments. Mixups, rushdown, zoning, and the grapplers seeming too powerful on day 1. It’s got all that. And you can play it with pretty much anyone in the fighting game community, no matter what other fighting game they play, because you can all reach basic competency in Fantasy Strike in minutes and start playing for real. Plus you can play with a joystick, gamepad, Guitar Hero controller, or whatever else you want.
Would you pick up a copy if a native Linux build was released? Personally, I love the style of it and it looks like it certainly could be a lot of fun!
