We can talk all about the origins of Maximum Games 2D fighter Them's Fightin' Herds, but one look at the trailer and we're all on the same page. We're talking about that game that has My Little Ponies stomping each other.
Sure, they aren't official My Little Pony characters. But come on. Look at this thing. Listen to those voices. Check out that animation. Those are My Little Ponies. Or at least pony cousins.
If it all looks pretty familiar, that's because the characters were designed by Lauren Faust (producer and developer for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I know. It is shocking.) The game features four-button combat with a number of modes, allowing players to practice in single player before jumping online for some pony (and deer, and cow) showdowns against players around the globe.
And I'm totally here for it. Them's Fightin' Herds has been on PC for a little while now, retailing on Steam for $14.99 with a Very Positive review rating. So people are digging it. The good news for console fans is that publisher Modus Games today announced that these hooved fighters are coming to console this fall. Expect to see Them's Fightin' Herds appear on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch sometime this fall.
