Super Smash Bros. Modders Are Making A Free-To-Play PC Fighting Game

You might have heard of developer Wavedash Games from its work on the Project M mod for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which is designed to improve gameplay and make it more closely resemble Super Smash Bros. Melee. Wavedash has now announced its first full game, titled Icons: Combat Arena.

It’s a free-to-play PC fighting game, and its gameplay is arcade-y and fast-paced. Because Icons is a commercial project and not a fan tribute, it contains no Smash Bros. assets or Nintendo branding. It’s meant to be a completely new game.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that the game isn’t similar at all to Smash Bros. On the contrary, Icons wears its inspiration on its sleeve. From the announcement trailer, its gameplay seems to share a lot in common with Nintendo’s series. For example, Icons features classic Smash Bros. moves like the edge hang, wavedash, and others. You can see the similarities for yourself in the trailer above.

The initial public reaction to the game appears to be somewhat negative; the trailer currently has more dislikes than likes, and the highest-rated comments are complaints about the game’s movesets and art style. The studio has tweeted that it is taking the public’s feedback in order to better polish the game.

Icons doesn’t have a release date yet, but it will have a public beta on Steam this fall. You can sign up for the beta right now at its website.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
