« ARIKA gives details on Steam, arcade versions of FEXL, future updates »

In a post to the company's official Facebook page on Oct. 1, ARIKA's vice president Mihara Ichirou announced that the company is working on two new versions of Fighting EX Layer as well as an update for the PlayStation 4 iteration of the game.

The new versions will be the Steam and arcade ports of the game, with development made easier by the fact that the Taito arcade board and Steam use the same operating system. As there may be some tweaks to the Gougi system in those versions, the team has also undetaken preparing an update for the PS4 version of the game.

Mihara also said that although the PS4 version of the game has so far succeeded in the company's expectations, it was not a "jack-pot" and that ARIKA wants more success with the new versions of the game. While he noted that the PS4 release allowed them to release two extra characters at no cost, any future "development of any potential updates or new content is based on the sales of these upcoming versions." He further stated that given the costs, it will be impossible for the company to provide cross-play options for players when the new versions do release.

No possible release dates for the new versions of the game were made available at this time. Readers can check out ARIKA's Facebook page for the full statement.
