Gone are overly complicated command inputs or long patterns.
RIP new characters in Legacy Wars. When you're dissing your own game, you're probably moving on from it.

Oh that is NOT a good sign. And here I was expecting this to be a traditional fighting game.
I mean, to me that reads like a generic description of any fighting game's controls.

Dissing their own game? Pretty sure its talking about other fighting games control schemes to do moves.

I think they're dissing actual fighting games, there. That whole excerpt sounded like they're trying to say this game will play just like Legacy Wars. Because a glorified Rock, Paper, Scissors system that barely works out on mobile games is TOTALLY what people wanna see on consoles.

EDIT:
Toejammer beat me to it

That isn't how I read that at all. In another quote they mentioned that the game is about "knowing when to strike, not how to strike". Based on that quote, I'm 99% sure that the "overly complicated command inputs or long patterns" they are referring to are the attack combos you see in other fighting games. Instead of B-B-A-X providing a combo attack, you press the "Rock" button when your opponent is scissoring and you've "struck at the right time". To me it sounds like they're saying the combat mechanics are going to look like those found in Legacy Wars.

Except those controls are super lame for an actual fighting game. Sure, it may work on mobile. But it's going to console. It's not going to compete with anything.

Don't think they're trying to compete with anything. Look at the pricepoint.

It's basically just a port of Legacy Wars, and I think that's okay, as long as they offer up some new content.

Except they don't seem to be offering up new content. They seem to be offering up less content than the actual mobile game. Their website only shows 15 character slots. Sure, they could add more, but why only have 15 slots listed, with 4 revealed, if they're actually going to have more characters than that? We're not even sure if those "new characters" in the season pass even count as part of these 15, or if they're 4 extra besides them. Even still, that is a pitiful roster of characters, when the mobile game has over twice as many.

And it sounds like there will be some kind of story mode, so that's new at least.

And if it only debuts with 15 characters, that is a little rough. But beyond that... as much as my first thought upon realizing it was probably just a LW port was negative, there are some positives here. I'm always dealing with lag on the phone version and the extreme freemium aspect of LW gets tiring.

If playing on a console with an actual controller can cut down on lag/button sticking that is a good thing. Additionally, as long as they don't include morph boxes or anything similar and just have the game with future DLC, it could offer a less financially frustrating version of the LW.

That said, I'm not going to pre-order until I know more about it.

any word on if this game has zords or not? Tommy Was playing the dragon flute in the preview and the dragonzord song can be heard when they mention the green V2 skin. un related to zords, the trailer also showed tommy using a green energy ball attack which i don't think he can use in legacy wars.

I updated the OP with an official trailer for the Switch port. This is officially legitimate.



battleforthegrid.com

But it's currently locked behind a password and not available to the public yet. I'm not sure if it'll be available at traditional stores like Gamestop or Amazon, but they where able to get Heroes of the Grid on pre-order, so take that as you will
OK they opened the official website and I preorder it as a collector. I hope now following the list of characters and that the game will be good.

Looks like another forgettable experience like megabattle.

Having a simplified system isnít bad (look at the ninja storm games) but the rock-paper-scissors aspect of Legacy wars was terrible

I just see another flaw with this game. It's cross-platform, which isn't bad. But PS4 players won't be able to play with anyone else. All of the others can apparently play together. I don't see why they decided to have it in there if they couldn't get all of them on board with it. It just makes no sense to me.

You can blame Sony for that. It's been their thing until recently where they've finally made a few exceptions after a long struggle. They're super strict for whatever reason.

In my view it's better to have cross-platform online for 3 out of 4 platforms, rather than none at all and have everyone locked down. It'll be easier to find other players that way too, instead of just being restricted to only one pool of players.

Well, they included it in there because they want to make money and PS4 is the highest selling console out. Also, PS has loosened up on cross-play between consoles the last couple of months.
