Haha, really? Interplay is bringing back ClayFighter

Remaster coming to PC next year

Mere days ago, I hoped out loud that 2015 would become the year of clay for videogames, and now there’s an announcement for a remaster of ClayFighter. Shame it won’t be out until 2016.

Interplay and Drip Drop Games (who?) are promising “the best of all previous ClayFighter titles” as well as “remastered audio and high resolution visuals.” Also, curiously, new mechanics: double jumping, air dashing, counters, and reversals. Claytality moves return, though perhaps they shouldn’t, and there will be 20+ characters (including Earthworm Jim and Boogerman) and stages.

My memories of this series are strongly linked to Blockbuster rentals and, truth be told, I think I ended up preferring the box art to the actual games. I was more of a Primal Rage guy back then.

Several years back, there was going to be an updated ClayFighter 63 1/3 for Wii and DSi but the game was canceled. We’ll see if this remaster has better luck.
