Divekick Addition Edition + has finally arrived on PS4! This update to Destructoid’s 2013 Fighting Game of the Year is available now for just $9.99. But what is Divekick?
Divekick is the world’s first two-button fighting game. It distills the essence of the fighting game genre into just two buttons with no d-pad directional movement. Divekick’s focused gameplay demonstrates how much depth a single move actually has, and introduces (or reinforces) skills fundamental to the genre: mind games, spacing, timing, and quick reactions.
Fans all over the world dove headfirst into Divekick last year and found a very simple to learn, but very difficult to master head to head competitive experience. In fact, weekly online tournaments are still happening to this very day! If you purchased Divekick for PS3 or PS Vita, fear not! The Addition Edition + update is completely free and will be available to you shortly. You’ll be able to enjoy GGPO-powered online cross play, allowing you to fight against players on the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. A world of competition awaits you.
Divekick’s original release was named in the top 10 overall games of the year (2013) by Ars Technica, Amazon, and Giant Bomb, showing that even players who aren’t usually into fighting games have found a lot to love in Divekick. We’ve added even more content to Addition Edition +, including a brand new stage and our first guest character, Johnny Gat from Saints Row IV! You can play through the single player story mode to find out why Johnny Gat is stuck in the Divekick world, or enjoy playing through with any of the other 13 warriors to learn more about them. Iron Galaxy is committed to updating Divekick AE+ with additional free DLC characters so long as the game is active online. Our first free character update will be revealed soon, so stay tuned to the Playstation Blog and to our twitter @Divekickgame!
