Mane6 has announced a release date for the long-awaited console editions of colorful cartoon slugfest Them’s Fightin’ Herds. The indie hit will finally make its console debut on October 18, arriving on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms. The console edition will be published by Modus Games.

As we have reported many, many times in the past, Them’s Fightin’ Herds is a one-on-one 2D fighting title that began life as an unofficial adaptation of the smash hit TV series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. After Hasbro’s lawyers came a’calling, the show’s creator, Lauren Faust, kindly reached out to the team to help with the design of an all-new cast of characters, which allowed the developer to continue the project as an original IP.

Launching in Steam Early Access way back in 2018, before eventually receiving a full release in 2020, console players have had to sit pretty for almost five years for the console port, but now finally have a date with which to mark their calendars. With a charismatic roster, quality animation, and tight Marvel vs. Capcom-esque mechanics, TFH has successfully built a dedicated community of players, as well as a healthy competitive scene. This community is only set to grow with the arrival of the console port.

Them’s Fightin’ Herds launches on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms October 18, priced at $19.99. A Deluxe Edition — including a season pass hosting four additional characters, new stages, and a selection of lobby avatars — will retail for $39.99. Pre-orders for a physical release are now live at the Maximum Games Store.
