Full Metal Furies, Kerbal Space Program: Enhanced Edition, more added to Xbox Store

It’s Wednesday, so it’s time to look into the midweek additions to the Xbox Games Store.

First up is Cellar Door’s Full Metal Furies, a beat ’em up that doubles as an action RPG that’s now available to download for the Xbox One and PC as part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program. Promising to redefine the beat ’em up, Full Metal Furies includes a “unique combat system” and simultaneous co-op for up to four players. But even if you’re going it alone, the “Pick 2” system lets players take two different characters into battle.

Also available to download today is Kerbal Space Program: Enhanced Edition, an updated version of Squad’s space simulation. The Enhanced Edition includes three new control schemes, an updated user interface, and a number of other updates and enhancements. Current owners of Kerbal Space Program will be able to download the Enhanced Edition as a free update.

You can learn more about all of today’s additions to the Xbox Games Store after the break. (more…)

Cellar Door’s Full Metal Furies will be released for the PC and Xbox One on January 17

Cellar Door Games, the developer responsible for Rogue Legacy, has announced a release date for their next game. Full Metal Furies is a retro-styled brawler that’ll be available for the PC and Xbox One on January 17 as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, and Cellar Door’s Kenny Lee had a lot to say about its modern design on the Xbox Wire:

FMF holds a special place in our hearts because its beginnings stem back more than 10 years ago, before our company, Cellar Door Games, even existed. Being ’80s babies, we grew up in the arcades with brawlers like Double Dragon and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade. It was truly the golden age of brawlers and beat-em-ups, but since then the genre has struggled to reach contemporary audiences. It was heartbreaking to see these types of games stagnate, so we’ve known for a long time that we wanted to do something about it.

For Full Metal Furies, we tried to tackle everything we thought was a problem. From the big ticket items like adding a proper story and implementing deeper combat systems, to the more minute issues such as standing at the edge of the screen and just punching enemies off-camera.

It is a massive laundry list of changes, big and small, and while we could bullet-point every single thing that we feel makes FMF special, who’d read it? (By the way, if you want a list, let us know and we’ll totally give it to you).

To celebrate the official release date announcement, Cellar Door also uploaded a new trailer for Full Metal Furies, and it’s been embedded above.

Retro-themed brawler Full Metal Furies will be out this year from Cellar Door Games

Cellar Door Games exploded onto the scene in a big way back in 2013 with the release of Rogue Legacy, their roguelike platformer for the PC. In the years since then, they found new fans for Rogue Legacy on the PS3, PS4, Vita, and Xbox One. But they also spent that time working in secret on a new game… Full Metal Furies.

In development for the PC and Xbox One, Full Metal Furies is a retro-themed brawler for up to four players and an RPG-like leveling system. With its unique character classes, Cellar Door believes that Full Metal Furies is “Not Your Typical Brawler,” and they set out to prove it in a new post on Xbox Wire:

  • Tired of button mashing? The game features four unique character classes with their own skills and attacks. Engage from afar as the Sniper, slam up close as the Fighter, or prep turrets in people’s faces with the Engineer.
  • Say goodbye to wonky hit detection. FMF uses complex attack logic to ensure obtuse depth perception is a thing of the past.
  • No more cannon fodder. Fragile Artillerists will stay away and call air strikes from afar, while heavy-duty Minitaurs will charge at you and get up-close and personal. Every enemy is a threat.

    Full Metal Furies is being designed from the ground up for co-op play, but players will also be able to tackle the adventure solo if they so choose. Using a “Quick-Swap System,” players will be able to switch off between two characters as they play… which becomes doubly important because certain enemies can only be damaged by attacks from specific classes.

    To further foster cooperation amongst all your friends, Cellar Door Games will release Full Metal Furies as an Xbox Play Anywhere with Cross Play support on Windows 10 PCs and the Xbox One sometime this year.
