The Thrilling Sequel to the Crustacean Fighting Game—Fight Crab 2 Coming to Steam Early Access on February 13, 2024!

PLAYISM is proud to announce that Fight Crab 2, the long-awaited sequel to Fight Crab, the legendary crustacean wrestling action game by Calappa Games, will enter Early Access on Steam from February 13, 2024!

We will also be participating in the Steam Next Fest to be held from February 6, where an exclusive demo of the game will also be available.

About the Game

In Fight Crab 2, you flip your opponents on their backs to win in crustacean wrestling action! This is the long-awaited sequel to Fight Crab. The sequel features the brand new Career Mode where you raise your very own crab, and crabs you've raised can be used in online multiplayer to fight against other crabs from all over the world.

Fight Crab 2 also builds upon Fight Crab's control scheme by adding the "Modern" control option, which is closer to a typical third-person action game. Live commentary is also broadcast over every game as an extra way to keep players on the same page. Crabs can also now learn skills that let them perform certain actions automatically. All of these help make Fight Crab 2 easier to learn and play.

Entering Early Access on February 13, 2024

Both the crab-raising Career Mode and online matches will be available from the start of Early Access, so please join us if you want to get your claws on the game as quickly as possible!

During the Early Access period, we plan to continuously update the game to tweak balancing and to add new features.

Exclusive Demo for Steam Next Fest (February 6-13, 2024)

In this demo, you will be able to try out the new Modern control scheme, the brand new Career Mode, and of course, the online co-op and versus matches. The demo will be exclusive to Steam Next Fest and it’ll go away after the event, so don’t miss your chance to try it!

※The demo will have a limited variety of crabs and weapons, as well as a shorter Career Mode.

Play Career Mode by Yourself...

Grow alongside your crab as you climb to the top of the Crab League together! Obtain all sorts of skills and weapons and raise your stats as you proceed through your crab's career. Win Ranked Matches to climb up the rankings, fight in Exhibitions to square off against terrible foes such as a farm tractor or a giant monster, or eliminate evil crabs in the name of justice in Event Battles to get the public to notice you! Once you've raised a crab, you can bring them to fight other players in online matches, or pass down their skills to another crab just starting their own career.

...Or Play Multiplayer with Friends!

Play 1-on-1 Ranked or Casual Matches, or cooperate with other players to fight against terrible crab foes in Challenge Mode. Meet up in public or private rooms that can hold up to 5 players, where you can set your own custom house rules!

The Meat of the Crab

In this game, you're not a crab. You're a human. Naturally. You can mount a crab to control it freely, or dismount it to pick up or throw weapons, or make use of stage gimmicks to support your crab. In team battles, even if your crab gets knocked out, you can still fight on if you mount your teammate's crab! You can also customize your appearance both in-game with VRM files and by connecting to VRoid Hub to change your avatar to look however you like.

Crabs can hold weapons in both pincers. From knives to chainsaws, to hopping on a motorcycle, to mighty tools such as drills and jet boosters, or fantastical weapons such as the Excalibur or Nimbus, crabs are adept at every weapon you can imagine.

Whenever you take damage, your Crab Gauge gradually fills up. Spend it to activate all sorts of spells, such as summoning weapons or obstacles, or simply shoot beams from your eyes. Use them to turn the tables in your favor.

Customize your crab with over 40 types of skills to choose from. Automatic Skills support your crab's movement, Visualize Skills add more information to the HUD, and Hyper Skills let you unleash ultimate moves by striking a cool pose, just to name a few. Even if you're a beginner, using the right skills could help you gain an upper hand against Fight Crab veterans!

Maki Shione, the Crab Farmer

Introducing Maki Shione, the crab farmer who will support players in their crab-raising journey in Career Mode. Her character design is by Kotetsu Kishida (@KIN_G_OF_KINGS). She’ll show up in 3D in the game, and she can’t wait to meet you all!
