Ninja Theory is an excellent game developer based in the UK that’s produced Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and the recent Devil May Cry reboot. Now, Ninja Theory is releasing its first iOS title, Fightback, which EA studio Chillingo will publish. Fightback, as you can see above, looks like a fairly gritty arcade-style beat-em-up, and it boasts some AAA grade production values, as well as some interesting touch-based combat.
Fightback is set for previews at E3, so we’ll see more of the game in action then. It’s set to launch on iOS later this summer. Chillingo is a very high-quality studio that’s been doing plenty of good work lately, and with its ties to EA, it’s no surprise that Ninja Theory gave it the go-ahead on publishing duties. Ninja Theory is a great studio, and we’ll look forward to seeing how this one turns out.
