Yes that’s correct, the game that started out as a parody fighting game is coming to the PlayStation3, PS Vita, and PC.
First, a little bit of history for those who have never heard of Divekick. The game was initially started as a parody video game by Adam Heart, the Editor-in-Chief of Shoryuken.com. What made Divekick unique was its lack of controls and surprising depth. It didn’t use a fight stick and players only had to worry about two buttons.
The whole point of the game is to use timing and your dive kick attack. The first player to connect with a successful dive kick wins the round. To win the match, a player must win five rounds.
After successfully debuting at fighting game tournaments, a Kickstarter campaign was started to bring the game to PC. Despite reaching their goal of $30,000, the developers decided to cancel their Kickstarter campaign after making a deal with One True Game Studios.
Teaming up with Iron Galaxy Studios, One True Game Studios is planning to release Divekick by spring 2013. There are no images or video of what the game will look like once the studios get their hands on it, but in the meantime check out the video below to get an idea of the style of gameplay Divekick will bring.
