Them's Fightin' Herds, an excellently named indie fighting game, has been popular on PC for a while, but it's time it was moved to a larger field. Publisher Modus Games and developer Mane6 have announced the title is coming to consoles, arriving on PS5 and PS4 this Fall, available digitally and physically.
The game is a 2D fighter with two key differences. First, it looks like a Cartoon Network show. Second, the playable characters are all four-legged animals. Yes, you'll get to grips with the likes of Velvet the deer, Paprika the alpaca, and Tianhuo, a half dragon, half horse. It's an unusual premise, but it's a well-received game with impressive reviews, so it seems to have gameplay chops to back it up.
Further to that, the game benefits from rollback netcode, ensuring minimal latency, a straightforward combo system based on four attack types, a story mode to explore, and more.
There's no firm date just yet, but this looks like it could be an entertaining alternative to your usual Street Fighters and Mortal Kombats when it arrives in the Autumn. Will you be playing Them's Fightin' Herds? Have a nice graze in the comments section below.
