Fighting EX Layer previews Arcade Mode and plans EVO 2018 side tournament

Single player content coming very soon

While Arika’s scrappy fighting title Fighting EX Layer is a lot of fun, its definitely considered an underdog in the current crop of fighting games. Not helping is the fact that the game has launched with very little offline content, even the most rudimentary vs CPU option.

That’s set to change, however, as earlier this morning Arika held a live stream to show off a new Arcade Mode, currently in development for the PS4 title. The new mode will feature multiple difficulty options and is expected to arrive in Fighting EX Layer very soon, perhaps even within the week.

Fighting EX Layer will also be making its presence felt at EVO 2018, to be held in Las Vegas in just a couple of weeks. Arika will be hosting a side-tournament, with a “tentative” plan to run a 64-player single elimination tournament over two days. There’s also talk of a $5,000 USD prize pot, though the organisers are currently waiting to hear confirmation from their overseas division.

Fighting EX Layer is available now on PS4.
