Vanguard Princess, a popular 2D fighting game is now on Linux & SteamOS

Fighting games are in short supply on Linux, so Vanguard Princess has come along to help fill the void for us. A few moments ago they announced the Linux version is good to go!

They note that buying it on Linux grants you this:
QuoteThe following items are immediately accessible at launch for players who purchase Vanguard Princess for Linux with no additional charges:
- Updated and originally uncensored version of Vanguard Princess
- Access to playable versions of the game's boss character Hilda Rize
- Additional battle stages
- Alternate story-lines
- Alternate endings for various characters
- Additional in-game music
- Built-in arcade stick support

It's a little confusing, as it makes it seem like it's somehow different to buying the Windows version, but it uses SteamPlay, so it should all be the same.

From looking over it, what I think they mean is that all the DLC is included in the Linux build right away. From the feature list, it sounds like that's the case and the DLC do only have Windows icons. So it's probable I'm right on that.

Earlier reports were that the game uses Wine on Linux, as I don't own it I cannot verify it.

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.

Find Vanguard Princess on Steam. It's also now on sale until the 5th of September it's dirt cheap! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

mrdeathjrMaybe buy but 50% is low however if you buy bundle discount up to 63%
There's no need to buy the Bundle as all DLC is already included in Linux version...
All the playable characters at least. Don't think that the soundtrack and the artwork are included. Or maybe I don't know where to look for them?

Thank you for that news! I already bought it.

It's really cheap, but it seems to be an "barely average" game, with boobs to attract more players than if it was "only a barely average game".

In case anyone is having problems with the Steam Controller, is because the Steam Overlay doesn't work in this game (regardless of version apparently.. A quick solution would be to add a the controller remap template to an activator button in the Desktop config (I have this done with the RB as activator, being the mapped RB/LB assigned to the grips).

OK, i bought it.

- Very poor options, no full screen, image stretchs when you change the size of the window, not so fun gameplay.
+ my XBoxOne USB works fine

OK, i refunded it.
