ClayFighter Reborn on WiiWare, DSiWare

clayfighter

Here’s a retro-redux no one saw coming. Interplay has announced they will be releasing downloadable updates to the ClayFighter Series. The studio doing the work is StudioBlack Games, comprised of some staff of the original games.

The franchise began on the SNES and Genesis as a parody of the fighting genre which had grown too large for its own good at the time. All characters were modeled in stop motion animation via clay models (hence the name for the late person), and were outlandish. A clown, snowman, pumpkin head… uh, thing, strong man, and more.

The series was only marginally fun to begin with, and went downhill quickly with an awful N64 title, ClayFighter 63 1/3. Hopefully this resurrection can take away some of the hurt from that disaster.
