Nicalis appeared today in the Twitch@E3 stream, and confirmed a new fighting title that's coming to Nintendo Switch along with other platforms such as PS4, PC and arcades. Co-developed with Studio Saizensen - Code of Princess and Sayonara UmiharaKawase / Yumi's Odd Odyssey - and features characters from the likes of Code of Princess and Cave Story.

It adopts sprite-styled visuals produced on 3D backgrounds, and is touted as blending the playability and accessibility of something like Smash Bros. with the depth of other fighters like Street Fighter. It'll have the usual batch of modes and, although footage is clearly in an early build, it look interesting (the NinEverything channel ripped the vid so we can re-watch on YouTube).

Do you like the look of this?
