Today Arika released a batch of new screenshots and a new video of its Street Fighter EX spiritual successor Fighting Ex Layer.
The video showcases the upcoming DLC character Sharon, while the screenshots also include Terry Bogard which will come as a guest character from the Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters series by SNK, and Area, who debuted on Street Fighter EX2 Plus.
We heard a few days ago that the three characters will be released before the end of May 2019. The first one, who is likely to be Sharon, will come in March. Two of the characters will be free, while the third will require an additional purchase.
At the moment there is no information of who will be a paid DLC, but it’s likely to be Terry, considering that he’s the most popular among the three and involves a collaboration with another developer.
If you’re unfamiliar with Fighting EX Layer, it’s the spiritual successor of the Street Fighter EX series, which Arika developed for Capcom several years ago. Apparently, they retained the rights for their original characters and were able to include them in their own games.
Fighting EX Layer is currently available for PS4, PC via Steam, and arcades in Japan.
