Like cute animals? Like fighting? Um, WHO DOESN'T??? Come SEPT 21 my pals at Mane6 and I will be starting a crowdfund to get such a fighting game up and running!

Backstory: Mane6 is a group of talented artists and animators who put much love into a fighting game (based on some cartoon ponies you may know) that they intended to release for free on the internet. Though the were totally transparent over the two years they were creating it, alas, the IP owners asserted their trademark rights (as was their prerogative) and put an end to their efforts.

However, I LOVED it - it was beautifully animated and funny in exactly the sort of way I would want such a game to be. Character-based fighting? YES PLEASE!

We are creating a NEW game with NEW characters and all the same FUN!

I'll post updates as we have them. Please consider helping our little labor-of-love out.

Sounds like fun. Shame the original game got ambushed right as they were finishing up on it.

Lauren I am your biggest fan. I made this account just to follow you! I love your work on mlp and I have a question about it: Will season 5 be the last? I'm fairly new to the show, and so far I love it. But I'm scared it will end soon! Please get back to me on this!

Actually there will be another 5 years of MLP left they have announced, although how much longer it goes for is out of Laurens control now as she left the show at the end of season 2.

But don't worry about the series ending anytime soon, the 6th season was already announced. :)

Wow, they actually are still working on this. I would check the website every now and again and there never were any new updates so I just assumed the project was dead. This is great news! :D (Big Grin)

I would write fanfiction when it's released, and hope the fan animation and indie animators come together over this.

I'd also buy a one-shot or four-shot comic. IDW might buy the hype if it gets big enough. (I don't foresee enough interest for an ongoing series, though.)

Capcom did a lot of extra stuff with Street Fighter (and in less extend, Darkstalker), and same did Midway (today Netherrealm Studios) with Mortal Kombat. Looking how the kickstarter is going, I think that a crowdfunding for some extra project would be succesfull too. An advantage is that in a crowdfunded form, she could do whatever funny and crazy idea she has in her mind for an animated short, that isn't something that could be done in a standar animation production.

Eh, it's not pony-related anymore.  I'll pass.  (And will everyone PLEASE dispel all this unnecessary excitement?)
I'm just going to wait until somebody will make the characters for the MUGEN engine(which will obviously be quite a while after the game is released).  "My Little Pony: Them's Fightin' Herds", anyone?

I'm glad that the game finally has a title and is approaching alpha status. "Them's Fightin' Herds" has a really good ring to it.

Not only is it looking beautiful thanks to Lab Zero's Z-Engine but it's also getting a seamlessly dynamic soundtrack almost like in the new Killer Instinct.

I'm so glad that you decided to work on this game and create the characters yourself. I'm sure it'll do just fine as a new IP. It may even earn its place in the Indie Hall of Fame right next to Skullgirls!

You have no idea how excited I was to hear this was being made after Fighting is Magic got the cease and desist order.
And, to my knowledge, Lab Zero is letting them use the Skullgirls fighting engine?

So, revealed so far is the cow with AJ's moveset.  Would you mind telling us who got the other movesets?  I know there's a more kirin-like unicorn with what I would guess is Rara's moves from the teasers, but I don't know what the reindeer does, or...

Great to see that you all found away around the IP problems. We need more cute fighters and animal fighters. Bloody Roar was the only thing we've had for years! And I love that game, but its time for something fresh! I wish you all the best of luck and success. Buck 'em dead! :D
