Sirlin Games is bringing its fighting title Fantasy Strike to the Nintendo Switch this summer, it was revealed during today's Nindies Showcase.

Set in a world where "fantasy meets martial arts", Fantasy Strike allows you to harness all manner of elements, items and concepts to create your arsenal of attacks.

It focuses on "nuanced mechanics with simple combos and easy-to-perform special moves" and will boast both offline and online modes.

Here's some PR:

Be an archer with fiery arrows, a colorful painter, a martial arts master who can transform into a dragon, and more! Fantasy meets martial arts in this vibrant world.

The streamlined controls get you to the fun decision-making part of fighting games as soon as possible. All moves are just a single button press, combos are easy, move lists are concise. Though Fantasy Strike is easy to get into, it's designed as a competitive tournament game with an emphasis on depth and balance. It's a mental sport that's difficult to master—just not difficult to control.
