Proper fighting games is something we lack, so it's really great to see that Vanguard Princess is coming to Linux!

It's a two on two battle system, so that alone has me interested to see how it plays out.

From their Steam announcement:
QuoteWe're working on a Linux / SteamOS version of Vanguard Princess!

We'll demo it at our booth at Evo 2016.

The Linux / SteamOS will have built-in arcade stick support.

Feel free to test the demo with your fight stick at Evo 2016.

More announcements will be coming soon.


About the game
Government experiments on a young girl triggered a cosmic shock wave that gifted many young girls with mystical powers. She re-emerges into the world and vows to destroy all of mankind in an act of revenge. A brave group of girls who embraced their powers head to the battlefield to confront her; not just for the sake of the world, but to pursue their own personal motives and dreams.

I'm looking forward to it. I also can't wait to see how it measures up to Skullgirls, especially with them both being 2D team based fighters centered around a female cast.

It would be great to have more good fighters natively on Linux. I usually resort to playing fighters via ps2 emulators.

Even though fighting games are not my jam, this is good to see. Always nice to see variety in a genre we're lacking in.

When it was on Greenlight in ~2014 they tagged it with a Linux Version to get more votes. So far they did not keep their promise. So I'll believe it when the Linux version is actually released.

Cute anime girls beating the crap out of each other? I'm sold!

This is now sitting on my Steam "wish" list and once we actually see a version for Linux-based operating systems (such as SteamOS and Ubuntu), I'll pick it up...

;-)

Have been playing this with WINE (platinum support) quite a bit, and it is IMHO a much better 2D fighter than Skull girls. At the very least it is more traditional, game-play and aesthetics wise.

I guess this is among the best 2D fighting games (outside of emulators) that we can hope for on Linux, although of course the newer Blaz Blue or Guilty Gear series games would rock (mainly due to the HD graphics)

This seems to be the MO for a lot of smaller developers these days: drum up interest (and donations) with the promise of a Linux version then show us the middle-finger when it's time to deliver.

As far as I know, it will be a Wine "port", so nothing will really change here.
